Wichita station installs Riedel digital matrix intercom
KWCH, the Sunflower Broadcasting CBS affiliate in Wichita, KS, has installed a Riedel Communications digital matrix intercom solution, including an Artist-based system that integrates telephone lines into the intercom.
At the heart of the installation is a Riedel Artist 128 digital matrix intercom. Nine Artist 1000 desktop control panels provide digital, broadcast-quality audio. The Artist intercom matrices can be expanded to up to 1024 x 1024 non-blocking ports. A C44 system interface integrates the existing digital partyline system into the communications infrastructure. Seven C3 Performer belt packs complete the installation.
Two Artist Connect Solo interfaces integrate POTS phone lines into the communications matrix. In addition, KWCH uses 10 closed Riedel PRO headsets.
