Fijians will now have access to premium television coverage of open broadcasting events through the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation’s new OB bus.
While launching the OB bus this morning, chief executive, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the bus is a milestone achievement for the company and Fiji.
Sayed-Khaiyum says this is the first locally designed and manufactured OB bus for Fiji and the Pacific.
“The construction of the bus commenced in January 2017 and was completed with the help and consultation of Whiteways Singapore who helped with the design, planning and equipment. Fabrication was done by PA Lal from Fiji, the electrical work was done by Foneology and the furniture was done by True Build Fiji and we’re very proud of the fact that it was made in Fiji by our whole team.”
Sayed-Khaiyum says the OB bus will be used for sporting and national events.
The OB bus features six full High Definition cameras with the capability to expand to 15 cameras.
Sayed-Khaiyum says $2million has been invested in the new bus.
