Outside broadcasting (OB) is the temporary provision of programme making facilities at the location of on-going news, sport or other events, lasting from a few hours to several weeks. Outside Broadcasts are generally planned in advance, but it is often necessary to accommodate short notice changes of venue or unforeseen requirements. Video and/or sound reporting radio links (channels) might be required for mobile links, portable links and cordless cameras or microphones at the OB location. Additionally, video and/or sound reporting radio links may be required as part of a temporary point to point connection between the OB vehicle and the studio.
