NEWS CAPTURE & PRODUCE Intercom Scan to see RTS at BVE CTV, the OB fi rm, has added RTS intercom systems to three of its trucks including its new 4k-capable OB11. One of the largest OB trucks ever built, with four production areas and an expandable size of 84 square meters, OB11 now features an ADAM matrix and 32 RTS keypanels. RTS systems have also been added to OB3 and OB14. “We cover many large high profi le events and OB11 has been designed to act as the hub of these operations,” says CTV head of sound Ian Smith. “The audio environment is an incredibly important part and needs to be capable of handling multiple feeds both in and out of the truck. Inside OB11, RTS’s ADAM (Advanced Digital Audio Matrix) acts as the heart of the communication system. With up to 880 ports, it allows for the creation of a very large communication matrix.” The matrix can be connected to all audio transmission formats including analogue, Voice over IP and the media networking architecture OMNEO. All keypanels in the truck are connected via OMNEO. The OMNEO architecture allows the transport and control of audio, video and other data over IP networks. www.rtsintercoms.com Mobile production Broadcast Pix will introduce Roadie, a mobile integrated production switcher, at NAB (booth SL5625).

A built-in handle allows for easy transport. A 17.3-inch HD touchscreen display with a scratch resistant top coat is also included. Steve Ellis, chief executive of Broadcast Pix, said: “It’s more than just a bare bones switcher offered by our competitors. Roadie is packed with all the tools you expect from a Broadcast Pix switcher and it is all integrated to simplify production workfl ows.
