Grass Valley offers one-stop solutions that are compact and highly efficient,” said Hennie Reynders, Director, DTF. “We have relied upon Grass Valley’s experience and expertise in the broadcast market for more than a decade and we are fully confident that our new OB van will deliver the high- quality content that our viewers expect.” The OB should be ready next month and will be used for various live events, including rugby, football, cricket, golf and motocross. 1.D11/1.E02
