UBF assures communications with RTS equipment for concerts by Coldplay, Andrea Bocelli and Andr and copy; Rieu Posted: 29/11/2012
UBF assures communications with RTS equipment for concerts by Coldplay, Andrea Bocelli and Andr and copy; Rieu

Among the rock and classical highlights of the 2012 concert season were the sell-out appearances of Coldplay in the Stade de France in Paris, Andrea Bocelli in the open air in Portofino (Italy), and Andr© Rieu in Maastricht. Three superstars from quite different musical traditions but with one thing in common: all three relied on the Hilversum-based broadcast service provider United Broadcast Facilities (UBF) for the recording of their acclaimed performances. And with good reason, because all three were planning to release DVDs of the concerts in question. Only state-of-the-art quality, then, would suffice.

RTS secures communications for the broadcasting of Eredivisie soccer from the Netherlands Posted: 29/11/2012
RTS secures communications for the broadcasting of Eredivisie soccer from the Netherlands

 UEFA ranks Hollands Eredivisie (Honorary Division) among the ten finest football leagues in Europe. Founded in 1956, the Eredivisie comprises 18 teams who play 34 matches each in the course of the season in their quest for the league title. 

Of the nine Eredivisie matches played each week, the Dutch service provider United has for the last 15 years been charged with broadcasting seven. To guarantee flawless transmission quality, United devotes a lavish outlay in human and technical resources to its coverage of these matches, with up to 15 employees and ten cameras involved each time. Nonetheless, according to Bolke Burnaby Lautier, Manager Operations Sports and Events with United, each new production proves as demanding and nerve-racking as the first. Tight schedules pose a constant challenge: When we arrive at the stadium on match day, we have to set up our equipment immediately. A 15-minute test follows, during which every item of equipment must be functioning flawlessly as by then the start of the broadcast is imminent and little time remains to put things right especially since, as well as our own staff, other studios along with their respective presenters all have to be integrated into the network.

MNET Nigeria relies in its new studios on RTS/Telex intercom systems Posted: 29/10/2010
cronus5 MNETSupersport Nigeria opened its new studio complex in Lagos in mid August. Divided between two large studios, a total of eight HD cameras are now in use. At almost the same time, the studio in which the popular Nigerian soap opera 'Tinsel' is produced was undergoing a lightning three-week renovation of its own, reopening only days later. There, too, HD cameras—four, this time—ensure top quality images. The intercom solution within and linking the various studios is based on two RTS/Telex Cronus matrices complemented by a variety of KP-612 and KP-632 keypanels. The studio system also includes four channels contributed by floor beltpacks from the 800 series as well as six TIF systems—all, also, from RTS/Telex.

Flexible, made-to-measure and even economical Posted: 28/01/2010
Flexible, made-to-measure and even economical State Theatre of Mecklenburg in Schwerin is one of the finest theatres in Germany. Since 1836, it has provided a stage for drama, ballet, opera, orchestral performances and even puppet shows. After closing in May 2009 to undergo an extensive renovation, the theatre reopened its doors at the beginning of November.
 
The first performances in the newly renovated theatre, the premiere of Yasmina Reza's play Der Gott des Gemetzels and a concert by the Mecklenburg State Orchestra, on the 7th and 8th November respectively, were also the first under the guidance of the new stage management system. Designed and installed by the Hamburg-based system integrator Amptown System Company (ASC), the new system from TELEX/RTS satisfies the complex and diverse requirements of the Schwerin theatre. The nerve centre of the stage manager's station is now a Cronus intercom matrix from RTS.
