Wisycom Takes Sobatech From Start to Finish

Sobatech Group equipment upgrade ensures that none of the motorsports action is missed.

Barcelona, Spain (March 21, 2018)—Broadcast services provider Sobatech Group has upgraded its wireless equipment to include a range of Wisycom products to assist its “start-to-finish” project management for a range of motorsports events.

The Wisycom products include its MFL links, MRK960 receivers, MTK952 transmitters, MPR50-IEM wideband receivers, MTP40S bodypack transmitters, Wisycom’s software manager and MTH400 handheld transmitters. Sobatech’s use of Wisycom began last year at the Endurance World Championship at the Paul Ricard circuit in France; the technology was most recently used at the SuperGT Series motorsports event at the Buriram Circuit in Thailand.

“We wanted to upgrade our older technology to ensure that none of the exciting motorsports action was missed,” says Jordi Nonell Canals, chief of engineering, Sobatech Group. “We met with the Wisycom team and were immediately impressed by their experience in working with live shows and broadcasting.”

For the SuperGT racing series, Sobatech utilized two Wisycom MFL links at two remote sites over optical fiber. At the remote sites, all signals were received from the pit lane at Buriram Circuit. In total, four MRK960 receivers and two MTK952 transmitters were integrated with the customer’s OB van intercom system, offering a huge coverage area for reporters and floor managers.

Canals finds that Wisycom’s software provides ease of use and efficient control over the network. According to Canals, “From a computer, we can manage the entire system, and the wide bandwidth of each component makes it very flexible.”
