Drake Electronics get mobile at SVT

Drake Electronics have won another 4000 Series II system order from SVT in Sweden, via their Swedish distributor VideoCad AB.
Comprising of one of Drake’s 4000 Series II Mini Matrix frames and seven user panels, the new system will be stored in transportable flight cases and will play a key role in a number of forthcoming SVT events.
It will play a key role at the 2003 Eurovision Song Contest in Riga, Latvia, where it will be used as the main broadcast intercom system by all the European states and in the future is likely to be used by SVT at major sport and other outside events.
SVT elected to use coax connection between the matrix and user panels so that additional panels can be borrowed from other SVT Drake systems as required. It can also act as a “add on” system in the TV-centre, which already have Drake systems.
Mats Fredén, Chief Engineer at SVT, said: “We have an excellent relationship with both Drake and VideoCad AB, built-up through years of good service.
Drake supplied us with a solution that was fully flexible and easy to configure and set-up."
