New RTS intercom device debuts at ISE 2016

DKP-4016 desktop keypanel extends the KP-Series

RTS is proud to introduce the new DKP-4016 desktop intercom keypanel at the ISE show in Amsterdam. The DKP-4016 expands the KP-Series keypanels family, which marks a new milestone within the RTS product range by combining HD color displays and improved single-key operation – all in a modern design. The KP-Series is suitable for a wide range of intercom applications such as broadcast production studios, theater and sports venues, houses of worship and outside broadcast (OB) trucks.

The new DKP-4016 desktop keypanel is available as both as a desktop and a wall-mount version and can be operated with all existing RTS matrices. This is ensured by a comprehensive set of connectors, including general purpose input/output (GPIO) and rear connector (RC). RJ45, Ethercon and fibre module (SFP) sockets enable full connectivity to either analog four-wire or digital IP networks; two different headset connectors (4 pin and 5 pin) and one analogue auxiliary (AUX) input offer numerous connectivity options.

The DKP-4016 features OMNEO IP technology on board. OMNEO is based on two key technologies – the media transmission component Dante from Audinate Pty, Australia and the system-control component OCA (Open Control Architecture). By utilizing open public standards, OMNEO provides highest interoperability, flexibility, reliability, resilience and future-proof technology. OMNEO enables a secure setup at a competitively low system cost due to the use of standard IT components, simplified installation and lower maintenance costs.


Like all new KP-series devices, the DKP-4016 desktop keypanel features a full-color, wide-angle high-definition display, which is always readable -- even under difficult lighting conditions. It offers superior color, contrast, resolution and viewing angle and is capable of displaying Latin, Cyrillic and simplified Chinese characters. The 16 four-way lever keys are ergonomically designed for the specific use as desktop/wall-mount versions and provide listen/talk and cross point level functions.

The new DKP-4016 desktop keypanel is also available as wall-mount version


„    Suitable for desktop and wall-mount operation
„    OMNEO IP technology and Dante compatibility ensure high-quality sound
„    16 position multi-function lever keys and high-resolution color display for user-friendly operation
„    Fully backwards compatible with all existing RTS matrices

The DKP-4016 desktop keypanel delivers superior audio quality free of noise and other audible artifacts. Sturdy housing and field-tested lever-keys also contribute to the improved usability of KP-Series keypanels. A lockable power connector ensures interruption-free operation, especially in the wall-mount configuration. Rubber feet at the bottom of the device provide maximum stability. The DKP-4016 desktop keypanel is also suitable for expanding its functions via future software updates.

The RTS DKP-4016 will be available worldwide in spring 2016.
