CBS Television City Studios Installs Riedel Intercoms
March 9, 2007
CBS Television City in Los Angeles has installed a Riedel intercom system in its new communications installation.
The Riedel Artist system was installed in Studios 36 and 46 in the East Studio Building and went live in late January. The configuration is comprised of two Artist 128 frames and one Artist 32. The three matrix mainframes are networked over a redundant fibre ring providing a decentralized, completely non-blocking matrix infrastructure.
Controlled by 39 Riedel 1000 series panels, the matrices are fully integrated with the facility's existing Clear-Com central videotape and transmission systems. CBS is also using existing ClearCom 2 and 4 wire interfaces for RTS beltpacks and for IFBs. The Riedel Artist is connected to existing Telos One telephone hybrids.
Currently, the 32-port Artist frame in the video tape division enable operators to communicate with the studios. Eventually Television City's renovation will encompass eight studios plus its videotape and master control/transmission facility.
