Sentia’s team have an extensive broadcast background within major national & regional broadcasters, both studio & field based, they combine this with an encyclopedic knowledge of transmission & digital encoding/delivery & a passion for all of the above to bring a unique & agile offering to the broadcast industry.
Sentia operate combined TV & Radio OB vehicles based on 4X4s which can go anywhere, at any time & get you live. We also operate conventional DSNG vehicles & fast response CNG vehicles. Whether you’re in central London or on a remote hill in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, we’ll get it done. In some cases we can be broadcast ready in 90 seconds. All of our uplink vehicles except for fast response are equipped to handle HD-SDI vision mixing & 16 channel audio mixing if you need it, plus they’re fitted with Talkback & GSM IFB.
We combine the best of 3G & 4G with IP based VSAT technology, LTE & conventional KU Band uplinks to deliver HD content direct to your MCR/Studio, stream it live to any destination you like or record it for later rebroadcast, transferring the recorded rushes over our VSAT link to base on the spot if you need to. Combined with our compact 4×4 vehicle platform, now you really CAN “go live from anywhere”.
