The latest addition to South African pay-TV broadcaster SuperSport’s outside broadcast fleet has already been in action, with its RTS.Telex ADAM system providing full communications on location, writes Kevin Hilton. OB6HD was built by Sony Professional Solutions Europe (PSE) at its base in the UK and can accommodate up to 28 high definition cameras. The intercom is based on a 144×144 RTS/Telex ADAM (Advanced Digital Audio Matrix), which is connected to keypanels including 29 KP12 CLDs, eight KP32s CLDs and six DLP16 CLDs. Personnel communicate using 42 MCP-90-12 microphones and 52 headsets (from the MH-300 and MH-402 ranges). Also part of the installation are three BRT-800 base stations and 12 TR-800 belt packs. Commenting on the choice of intercom, Gerhard Strydom, broadcast sales and marketing manager for Sony South Africa, says, “The customer and ourselves quickly agreed that we wanted to use systems from RTS/Telex. The quality is exceptional and you can rely 100 percent on their systems, which in the world of outside broadcasting is the paramount consideration. After all, replacing an intercom system is hardly as simple as changing a tyre.” SuperSport has commissioned another truck from Sony PSE. Designated OB4HD, it will also feature a RTS/Telex communications system. www.supersport.com
