Melbourne, Australia A major international TV sports network used the new RTS RVON-8 Voice over Internet Protocol card to assist in broadcasting the 2004 Australian Open Tennis Championship, which ran from January 19th to February 1st. The network’s 136X136 ADAM frames in Melbourne, Australia, and at network headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut, were connected via the RTS Intelligent Trunking System over IP, allowing users to speak directly or communicate (via remote or virtual keypanel) with anyone on the personnel list at network headquarters at the press of a key. Both systems used 2 RTS RVON-8 cards.
Installed directly into ADAM Intercom Systems, the RVON-8 card expands the connectivity to the ADAM intercom by supporting 8 individually addressable audio channels (ports) in and out. Each channel has configurable network and bandwidth parameters that can be tailored to individual network functions, as well as ancillary data for keypanels and trunking control. As with all ADAM intercom family products, the RVON-8 card supports all standard hot swappable and configurable software. The RVON-8 uses standard Ethernet protocols and is compatible with all Ethernet compliant devices and networks. With AZedit configurations the user has the ability to adjust the audio quality of the matrix intercom to the available bandwidth on the network. The RVON-8 card can simultaneously feed VoIP capable keypanels as well as various other matrix intercom panels.
Chuck Roberts of RTS & Telex System Support commented: “Both ends liked the audio quality and the versatility of the system, especially as being able to select the right person (or persons) and talk to them clearly with no delay issues (RVON uses 64-Kbit per-channel Codec) saves time and money. People can easily visit the Web for fast global coverage of sports events. RVON enables international TV broadcast communications to be just as accurate and immediately informed using VoIP technology.”
