Intercom specialist Clear-Com has supplied a digital matrix and wireless communications system to Beijing Television (BTV), which allows the state broadcaster to connect intercoms in its new broadcast facility and established studio centre, writes Kevin Hilton. The manufacturer has also appointed a new president, Bob Boster, who replaces Mark Danilowicz. The 48-port Clear-Com Median digital matrix can be integrated using Ethernet to existing systems used by BTV. The intention is to make updating already installed equipment easier, allowing a sub-core intercom matrix to be built in the older five-studio complex. BTV personnel will also communicate with each other using ten FreeSpeak digital wireless beltpacks. Additionally a 36-port Eclipse-PiCo system, with 25 V-Series panels and 11 wireless IFB units has been installed in the broadcaster's HD 3D OB vehicle. "Beijing Television was impressed with the ease of connectivity and interoperability between the various Clear-Com intercoms. It went along well with its aim to connect the new Eclipse in the older facility with the Eclipse system in the new complex," comments Jeffery Wu, regional sales manager for China at Clear-Com. "The system will give BTV a communications environment that is centrally controlled, yet highly flexible and expandable." Bob Boster is now president of Clear-Com, after Mark Danilowicz left the company on 31st December 2011. Boster was previously vice president of worldwide sales at Clear-Com, which he joined in 2006 from ENCO Systems. "We are confident that Bob is the right person to lead Clear-Com," says Mitzi Dominguez, president of parent company HME. "Bob’s service to Clear-Com has been marked by outstanding sales performance, a proven track record in execution and sound business judgment as an executive. Furthermore, Bob's solid understanding of our customers, products and markets will make this transition seamless." www.clearcom.com
