“The tech is working brilliantly and blowing minds – We keep getting comments like “Wait, you can DO that?!”
“You’ve been a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to the next phase of the project.”
Phase 2 of this project will be taking place in Summer 2022.

VIRGIN MEDIA REFRESH THEIR SATELLITE SYSTEMS WITH MEGAHERTZ
Virgin media have asked MHz to help them out with the refurbishment of their TV headend system in West London and North West England.
Their satellite reception system is composed of more than 15 satellites and has multiple levels of redundancy but is in need of a refresh. We’re happy to be able to offer our services and help to keep them on air.
We were approached by live broadcast company Jackshoot TV, a client who captures content from multiple sources and delivers it to any digital platform as a live feed. The brief was to create a compact flexible production vehicle based on a Mercedes V-Class chassis, capable of multi-camera filming on location, HD editing and play-ins.
The vehicle build involved designing and fitting lighting, AC and DC power delivered through a combined Victron 12V inverter/charger, batteries, a desk for 2 operators, racks and patching panels. The vehicle also has 10Mbps data connectivity and multi-camera video switching.
Upon leaving our factory the new production OB was put straight out to work for IP broadcasting and mainly live streaming to web. The vehicle can handle up to 20 feeds in and out simultaneously at the same time and it is utilised for large events such as the BAFTAs, BRIT Awards and British Athletics for clients such as YouTube Live and Facebook Live.
