- Both descendents of the extremely popular Zeus III matrix launched in 2009

- The Zeus III LE and LE+ offer a range of user-friendly features that suit smaller-scale applications, such as community theatres and cable television stations

Amsterdam / Straubing, September 2010: RTS is pleased to introduce the new Zeus III LE and LE+ digital intercom matrices at IBC 2010 (booth 10.F38), both descendents of the extremely popular Zeus III matrix launched in 2009.

The Zeus III LE further streamlines the feature set of Zeus III and is designed to address the need for matrix power in smaller installations providing the ultimate economical intercom solution, with 16 In/Outs (instead of Zeus III's 32) and a single power supply unit. The Zeus III LE+ is also equipped with 16 in/outs, but features the same dual/redundant power supply included with the Zeus III. Both the LE and the LE+ also include an additional 2 channels of party-line interface via a built-in hybrid for connecting to RTS TW, Telex Audiocom and Clearcom party-line systems.

The Zeus III LE and LE+ offer a range of user-friendly features that suit smaller-scale applications, such as theatres, flyaways, SNG Trucks and compact OB vehicles including two configurable party-line interface channels and AZ-Edit Intercom software – remote-configurable via Ethernet, serial, or USB connectors.

The Zeus III LE and LE+’s 16 standard RJ45 connectors make it easier to create an intercom system with audio lines and keypanels by keeping the RTS wiring scheme. In addition, the two built-in relays can be used to control lighting or to key remote transmitters, paging systems, etc.

The Zeus III LE and LE+ encapsulate the RTS philosophy of “backwards compatible, forward thinking,” and provide a high-quality, high-value solution for those looking for the flexibility of a networked matrix frame and the simplicity of a party-line system. Since they are part of the RTS family of matrices, all of which use the same peripherals, accessories, and programming tools, the Zeus III LE and LE+ allow facilities to easily expand their systems as necessary.

Zeus III LE & LE+ key features:

Choice of power supplies

The Zeus III LE is equipped with a single power supply unit. The Zeus III LE+ features the same dual/redundant power supply included with Zeus III.

USB port

For easy system configuration using AZedit intercom software.

Trunk capable

Communicate with an RTS trunked system using the dedicated DB-9 trunk connector with standard RS485 protocol.

Additional channels/ports

Each of the 16 channels may be used to connect a keypanel or 4-watt audio (audio in/out).

Dual-channel party line interface

Includes an interface for two additional party line channels. Configure via the front panel for use with RTS TW, Telex Audiocom, or Clear-Com party line systems. No additional interfaces necessary.

Remote configuration

Easy remote configuration via Ethernet.

Dynamic keypanel addressing

The Zeus III LE and LE+ automatically address keypanels when they are connected to the frame. This eliminates the need for setting keypanel addresses and maintaining port allocations.


Two relay connections are included, available on the back panel of the units.
