In Russia, as elsewhere around the globe, the value and advantages of RTS & Telex products are appreciated — a case in point being Okno
Professional Video & Audio, which equips radio and
stations and relies on know-how from RTS & Telex for a wide range of projects.
For TV broadcaster Channel 31, Okno TV built a complete broadcasting center from the bottom up, starting from scratch, too, when it came to the planning and installation of the video, audio, intercom, lighting, cabling and other equipment a television studio needs in order to function. Naturally RTS & Telex products — including an ADAM-CS with 16 ports, KP-32 and MKP-12 keypanels (plus the headsets and microphones to go with them) — figured prominently on the firm's shopping list, with the planners taking care to choose a system capable of being expanded easily, should this prove necessary, to meet the changing needs of the company.
A new studio complex being built in Novosibirsk for GTRK also needed fitting out with new equipment, and here, as at Channel 31, Okno TV opted for an ADAM-CS with sixteen ports, KP-12 and MKP-12 keypanels, and the requisite number of headsets and microphones. Once again, the ease with which the system can be expanded was one of the key arguments in its favor.
The English-speaking broadcaster Russia Today also commissioned Okno TV to equip its latest studio with new equipment. An ADAM-CS with sixty-four ports as well as KP-12, MKP-12 and BKP-4 keypanels was installed, complemented by a BTR-800 system, 4-wire connections and several TIF-2000 units as well as microphones and headphones. For its Arabic-language broadcasting operations, Russia Today opted for a Cronus 64 x 64, which it combines with its existing ADAM-CS and KP-32, MKP-12, and BKP-4 keypanels. The company is already discussing the possibility of linking the matrices using a Trunkmaster TM-2000.
For RTRK of Kazakhstan, Okno TV has constructed three studios in different locations, with the studios linked by intercom systems. Here the choice was for a Zeus II with MKP-12 keypanels, a TIF-2000 digital telephone interface, and four-wire connections.
Finally, for the newly established news broadcaster Vesti-24, an existing ADAM matrix was expanded through the addition of 24 further ports supplemented by KP-32 and MKP-12 keypanels, and PAP-32, LCP-102 and TIF-2000 systems.
