Multiple broadcasters rely on RTS intercoms for Republican convention
Several major U.S. broadcast networks relied on RTS to deliver communications to their production teams in real time across the entire country during the Republican National Convention.
One news network used RTS to establish a remote connection from Washington, D.C., to St. Paul, MN, via an RVON-8 VoIP interface for ADAM to RVON-I/O analog VoIP interface. This method allowed the news network to connect KP-32 Classic key-panel users in Washington to crew members in St. Paul.
Another broadcaster connected ADAM frames equipped with the new AIO-16 16-channel analog I/O card kit to KP-32 Classic and BKP-4 key panels via fiber.
Installed directly into the ADAM matrix intercom system, the AIO-16 card provides 16 ports of audio in and out as well as individual data drivers for each port installed in the system. The AIO-16 supports connections of up to 2.2mi per port and is hot-swappable, allowing the user to insert the card and begin using it instantly.
Still another broadcaster rented production trucks equipped with ADAM matrix frames, RVON VoIP and RTS SSA interfaces, and KP-32 Classic and KP-12 Classic key panels.
