NewsCam picks Riedel Artist Intercom for HD SNG Van

Riedel Artist Control Panels

The Swiss SNG provider NewsCam expanded its four camera HD SNG vehicle with a Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom. Riedel Communications, one of the leading manufacturers of intercom, fiber, audio and radio technology, delivered an Artist 32 system. Tele Comm Sportservice, Riedel's partner in Switzerland, was responsible for implementing the project.

Used more and more at sporting events

 At the heart of the HD SNG vehicle is an Artist 32 digital matrix intercom mainframe. Artist 32 is a powerful and cost-effective digital intercom matrix/stage management system, which is designed for the requirements of stand-alone broadcast applications, opera houses and theatres as well as sports and cultural events. The system is based on a modular concept and can be adapted to the users' individual requirements. Hot swappable client cards, plus redundant CPUs and power supplies offer maximum reliability. Artist 32 provides up to 32x32 ports and is easily expandable with any other Artist mainframe building matrices with up to 1,024x1,024 non-blocking ports. Artist 1000 series control panels are used in the NewsCam HD SNG truck.

 "Switzerland's most advanced HD SNG was being used more and more at sporting events. We quickly reached its limits; an investment in a new intercom solution was desperately needed. Riedel's Artist gives us maximum reliability and flexibility," said Roger Lips, owner of NewsCam GmbH.
