Hungarian broadcaster to add Clear-Com intercom network to new HD facility
Hungarian public broadcaster Magyar Televízió (MTV) has chosen the Clear-Com Communication Systems hybrid time-divisional multiplexing (TDM) intercom/IP server network for its new all-HD broadcast facility, which will open later this year in Budapest.
Offering direct IP connectivity from Clear-Com’s Eclipse digital matrix hardware frame to the company’s Concert software panels, the network will establish a single communication environment for the MTV staff.
MTV will employ the hybrid network for all programming and production needs in the new facility, one of Hungary’s first broadcast houses to be entirely HD. Comprising the network are two Eclipse Omega digital matrix intercom frames on a fiber loop; 100 user control panels with standard, AES, coax or IP connectivity; and the Concert software. Clear-Com’s new IVC-32, a 32-channel IP matrix connection card powered by the company’s I.V. Core technology, allows linking between the Eclipse and IP-based solutions.
