STB Ukraine adds Riedel to latest truck
Ukraine: STB Ukraine, one of the country’s largest broadcast networks, has equipped its latest ten camera HD OB truck with a communications system from Riedel combining wired Artist digital matrix intercom with wireless Acrobat intercom technology.
Eight Artist 2000 series and six Artist 5000 series desktop control panels provide the needed communications ports
“For our truck we wanted both maximum stability and flexibility. With the combination of Artist and Acrobat technology we have the best of both worlds. Artist renowned system stability and the flexible use of Acrobats wireless technology,” said Ruslan Polizchuk, technical director.
An additional Riedel Acrobat installation is completing the setup. Acrobat provides full-duplex wireless VoIP-over-DECT communications. It features a license-free, cellular architecture with seamless hand-over between cells, allowing each Acrobat Wireless Beltpack to continuously monitor and automatically select the best connection to the Acrobat Cell Controller. Furthermore, Acrobat does not interfere with IEMs or wireless microphones and therefore provides a perfect solution for broadcast and live applications. A total of ten Acrobat beltpacks are used in the OB truck. The truck is already installed and in use.
