HD OB Truck “Starbird” Takes Off With Intercom Systems From RTS

In Ukraine, the first high-definition outside broadcast vehicle to have been designed and equipped entirely by Ukrainian engineers has just commenced service.
The truck, which is named ‘Starbird’, is a cooperative venture by the film production company Star Media and the systems integration specialists Engineer Service of Kiev. On board the truck are a Zeus III matrix as well as KP32CLD, KP12CLD and DKP16CLD keypanels from RTS. With the new truck comes the possibility, according to Dmitry Prikordonny, President of Engineer Services, for Ukrainian broadcasters to deliver sporting events and live shows in HD quality.
The 25-ton Starbird can be equipped with up to 18 cameras and process signals in both standard and high definition. For the intercom equipment, Engineer Service decided to rely on systems from RTS, as these offer not only state-of-the-art performance but also convince, says Prikordonny, “on account of their optimal price-performance ratio”. A further consideration is that Engineer Service is a long-standing customer of RTS. “Naturally we prefer to rely for our own projects on the systems of our partner,” explains Prikordonny.
The centerpiece of Starbird’s intercom installation is a digital Zeus III intercom matrix with RTS AZedit matrix control software. Also available are a KP32CLD as well as six KP12CLD keypanels in 19-inch format and a DKP16CLD desktop panel. All the keypanels are equipped with MCP-90-18 condenser microphones with gooseneck mounts. The Starbird also features an RTS SIP-ISDN interface. A wireless intercom system is also present in the shape of a Telex RadioCom BTR-700 with four beltpacks and headsets. A made-to-measure intercom solution – with room for further expansion. In fact plans are already afoot, reveals Prikordonny, to extend the intercom system via IP, MADI and AES.
