Spanish broadcast production company equips OB van with Clear-Com intercoms
Mediamovil TV, a broadcast TV production company in Spain, has outfitted its newest OB van with the Clear-Com Communications Eclipse digital matrix intercom systems and V-Series user panels.
Mediamovil TV installed Eclipse-Median and Eclipse-PiCo frames, along with the panels, to ensure reliable, easily expandable communications across its growing roster of live and prerecorded sports broadcast projects for the BBC, RAI, Canal Sur, TV3 and other major broadcasters.
The Eclipse and V-Series systems offer Mediamovil’s staff increased connectivity and control options, helping them achieve tighter and more efficient production workflows for sports broadcasts and other projects requiring fast turnaround times. The Eclipse Median and PiCo can accommodate 148 users or positions, which gives the production company the option to tailor the number of staff with access to intercoms according to the needs of each customer. The V-Series panels, meanwhile, enable remote access to the Eclipse systems in the OB van from other areas of a stadium or venue.
In addition to the Eclipse and V-Series panels, Mediamovil has a Clear-Com FreeSpeak digital wireless intercom system from an earlier purchase. The Eclipse Median acts as a central switching unit from the OB van, linking users on the V-Series panels and FreeSpeak beltpacks with one another. The Eclipse Configuration Software lets operators configure intercom connections on the fly.
