Yamaha TF3 installed in Dutch Multicam's OB truck

Increasing demand for his services has seen renowned Dutch cameraman and video editor John Huijbregts build his own 4K outside broadcast truck, which has been equipped with a Yamaha TF3 digital mixing console.

Huijbregts has worked both nationally and internationally, covering a wide range of different events and productions. His company Dutch Multicam is located in the southern town of Sint Willebrord, with facilities that include edit rooms and full post-production facilities.

“I have a long history of mixing with Yamaha, both for recording and post-production. Many of my colleagues in the broadcast industry also use Yamaha because of their excellent reputation for ease of use, reliability and return on investment,” says Huijbregts.

Working with his sound engineer Jan Valentijn, Huijbregts chose the Yamaha TF3 with two Tio1608 Dante i/o units for his OB truck.

“We chose the system because there are plenty of outputs and processing for what we need. The Tio1608 units can also be deployed outside the vehicle at recording locations,” says John.

Complementing the TF3 system are eight 4K cameras and state of the art satellite uplink, streaming and communication facilities, meaning the truck can be deployed to any kind of live or recording situation.

“The TF3 is very easy to operate, making both live streaming and recording very straightforward,” says Huijbregts.

“The vehicle is currently used on projects for several Dutch broadcasters and corporate events and the preset automation is also very useful for the many different jobs that we do.”
