RTS to showcase first IP-based keypanels at IBC
RTS intercoms will present its latest product developments at IBC 2015, and a specific highlight will be RTS’s KP-Series. The KP-Series keypanels set a new milestone within the RTS product range, combining HD color displays, improved single key operation and full compatibility with all existing RTS matrices in a modern design. KP-Series keypanels are suitable for a wide range of intercom product customers such as broadcast production studios, theatre and sport venues, houses of worship, and outside broadcast vans.
The new KP-Series family from RTS includes three members: The KP-5032 (a two-rack unit keypanel with 32 operation keys), the KP-4016 (a one-rack unit keypanel with 16 operation keys), as well as the EKP-4016 (a one-rack unit extension panel with 16 operation keys). All KP-Series keypanels are backwards compatible with existing RTS analog matrices and forward compatible with future-proof OMNEO open IP architecture using Dante transmission protocol and thereby provide a future-proof investment.
The KP-Series from RTS is furthermore the first keypanel series with OMNEO technology developed by Bosch on board. OMNEO is based on two key technologies – the media transmission component Dante from Audinate Pty, Australia and the system-control component OCA (Open Control Architecture). By utilising open public standards, OMNEO provides highest interoperability, flexibility, reliability, resilience, and future-proof technology. OMNEO enables a secure set up at competitively low system cost due to the use of standard IT components and lower installation as well as maintenance costs.
Each KP-Series keypanel features a full-color HD display offering superior color, contrast, resolution, and viewing angle. The keypanels are capable of displaying Latin, Cyrillic, and simplified Chinese characters. Additionally, RTS’s latest product innovation allows intuitive single hand operation by ergonomically designed four-way levers providing talk/listen and volume. The KP-Series of panels now offer as standard a full range of external connections for GP-I/O and ancillary audio functions, which were previously optional. Superior sound quality with design assistance is provided by the EV speaker engineering R&D group.
Additionally, RTS will be celebrating 40 years of customer partnership and technological innovation at IBC 2015 – and will be giving away three iPads to three lucky winners. To take part in the prize draw, visitors simply need to visit the RTS stand (booth B48, hall 10). At the same time, RTS is inviting customers and end-users alike to its anniversary celebrations at the booth on Friday, September 11th. With the reception, RTS would like to personally thank its loyal customers for their support over the decades, and welcome new members to the RTS family.
