MVP Installs Riedel in Latest HD Truck
Mobile Video Productions, a division of CanWest Media Works, installed an Artist digital intercom matrix from Riedel Communications in its new HD mobile production truck.

The truck is wired for 10 cameras and is expected to start productions this month.

The new MVP system includes a 96x96 matrix in two frames with coax cards for connecting control panels via coax cable and analog cards for interfacing 4-wire audio. In addition, the frames’ redundant CPUs are equipped with fiber connectors to enable the truck to merge its intercom with that of other Artist systems. This will allow MVP to interface to other Artist-equipped trucks in the field, as well as to the multinode Artist intercom matrix used by Global TV’s new studio complex in Toronto. When connected via fiber, the systems will function as one larger system.

“It’s built like I would have built it—very intuitively,” said Ted Krzywonos, an engineer with MVP. “You can tell that a lot of thought went into the design. For example, the fact that you don’t have to set an address on the panels is excellent in a mobile environment.”
