Clear-Com technology for Spanish OB van13 October 2009
SPAIN: Mediamovil TV’s new OB vehicle features Clear-Com Eclipse and V-Series systems, reports David Davies. The Spanish broadcaster is using Eclipse digital matrix intercom systems and V-Series user panels "to ensure reliable, easily expandable communications" for its lengthy roll-call of sports broadcast projects.
The Eclipse-Median (pictured) and Eclipse-Pico frames can accommodate a total of up to 148 users or positions, enabling Mediamovil the option to tailor the number of staff with access to intercoms as required. The V-Series panels, meanwhile, enable remote access to the Eclipse systems in the OB van from other areas of a venue.
Ram_n Lage, technical manager at Mediamovil TV, commented: "We were very impressed with the Eclipse’s expandability and ease of configuration. It allows us to adapt to customers’ needs in any environment; a critical factor in our competitive business. With the Eclipse’s ECS software system, we were easily able to expand our current intercom offerings, tailoring our configuration needs to each specific facility with no problems."
Clear-Com’s distribution partner in Spain, Aicox Soluiciones, facilitated the sale to Mediamovil TV and provided additional support when necessary.
Matt Danilowicz, president and managing director of Clear-Com Communication Systems, tells PSN-e: "Clear-Com’s Eclipse matrix intercom is the newest, most innovative intercom. In Europe, our list of major broadcast projects continues to grow, which tells us that broadcasters there are recognizing the unique benefits of a more modern approach to intercom-an approach incorporating our patent-pending IV Core for native IP networking, exclusive integrated addressable wireless, and user-friendly features like ‘Listen-Again.’ These features make Eclipse the preferred choice for operators, as well as support staff, as they find it makes communicating during busy production periods a much more seamless and accessible process."
