The vital role of communications in live production
Tom Turkington Live event production is extremely challenging under the best of circumstances. Whether it be sports, concerts, theater or some other event, live production only gives you one chance to get it right. Staging, sound, lighting, cameras, video, special effects, costume, makeup and more, can all go into making a successful live production. Starting hours or days before the show, right up to the critical moments of the actual performance, communications play a critical role across all production disciplines in the execution of a successful live event.

No broadcast without flawless communication
KitPlus Reliable and fail-safe communications for the broadcast of live events are more important than ever. On site, broadcasters only have one chance to grab the perfect image for the viewer with time being a crucial factor. The larger the event, the more viewers it reaches and the higher the risk that something could go wrong. As a consequence, reliable, non-blocking, high-performance communication between all participants is essential. In broadcasting, nothing can happen unless everyone can talk and communicate with each other, explains Nico Lewis, Senior Sales Manager RTS Intercoms. That is why high profile live events such as Wimbledon, the Winter Games or the Superbowl rely on RTS intercom systems to provide communication in their broadcasting OB trucks.

The IP Solution - intercom systems without extensive new cabling
Manuel Brico When a broadcasting or TV station wants to install a new intercom system in its broadcast centre or headquarters - or wishes to replace its entire intercom system - it is faced with two big investments. One concerns the capital investment in terms of hardware and software. This will include investment in equipment such as the intercom matrix, keypanels and accessories. The second concerns the installation and the commissioning itself, as a new system requires new cabling due to different standards and system topology.
