Proof of this was provided recently by the show “Michael Forever The Tribute Concert” in Cardiff, Wales. On behalf of the Bristol-based TV production company Iambic, Dutch facilities company UNITED was charged with recording the concert. The challenges were manifold, and included a very tight set-up schedule and the need to record the show in 3D format, so enormous importance was attached to ensuring flawless communication between all members of the production team. This meant that it had to be possible for the various cameramen, staff in the control room, and the rest of the UNITED team to be able to communicate seamlessly with one another as and when needed. The communications infrastructure was provided by equipment from RTS/TELEX. The nerve centre being an RTS Advanced Digital Audio Matrix (ADAM) with a 144 x 144 port configuration. Nineteen KP-12 and twelve KP-32 keypanels were connected to the matrix. ADAM matrices can be fitted with a variety of interfaces (including AIO-16, AES-3, MADI 16+, and RVON-16 VoIP cards) and a single frame can be configured for up to 464 users (ports). Eight RTS 2W/4W interfaces and twenty- five BP-325 belt packs also formed part of the communications provided for the Cardiff production, proving particularly useful in the case of the 3D rigs, which were not equipped with integrated intercoms. www.rtsintercoms.com OTT MPEG Docsis CAS CPE Linear TV VoIP IPTV MHEG Multi-screen The Connected Home Academy Delivering Knowledge DVB ZigBee VoD STB Femto DRM Offers 4 professional certiications and over 35 courses for Broadcast, Telco and Connected Home professionals UI & EPG Visit us at Broadcast Video Expo 2012, London www.perpetual-solutions.com info@perpetual-solutions.com + 44 (0) 207 620 0033 TV-BAY MAGAZINE | 07
