L-S-B Targets Multiple Facets of Sports Broadcasting With Virtual Studio Manager

The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome L-S-B Broadcast Technologies as a corporate sponsor. Founded in 2003, the manufacturer of control and monitoring systems for radio and television production and broadcasting features a worldwide sales network. Its staff of 35, headquartered in Wiesbaden, Germany, is responsible for management, project implementation, services, and software and hardware development.

“SVG focuses on a market space that L-S-B fits right into,“ says Mark Whitman, director of sales, L-S-B USA. “With the recent success of our vsmStudio solution being deployed by NEP Supershooters and Fox, for their Fox Sports1 Network, we feel that SVG is a perfect fit for who we are and what we are looking to accomplish. We want to get more involved within the sports-production community, and SVG gives us the ability to do that by exposing our brand to a very wide audience. I am looking forward to a very successful relationship with SVG.“

The company’s core product is the IP-based Virtual Studio Manager (VSM), a universal control and monitoring system relied on by many broadcasters across the world. As a single-source solution, it works independently of any single manufacturer and represents a flexible and powerful answer to technical challenges in production and broadcasting in various environments.

L-S-B will present its innovative VSM broadcast-control and -monitoring system at NAB 2014. At its booth, visitors will be able to experience first-hand the system’s versatility and flexibility. Complete broadcast-workflow examples will be demonstrated on the show floor, including MCR, studio, and mobile production.

The company will also highlight its flexibility and benefits with respect to studio and mobile-production applications. Booth visitors will be able to see a full integration of many third-party devices that will be used to showcase how VSM can maximize the use of available resources of a multiple-studio cluster.
