Ukrainian Broadcast Network TRK To Expand Their Riedel Artist Installation

The Ukrainian Broadcast network TRK Ukraine updated their communications infrastructure to a new Artist digital matrix intercom system from Riedel Communications.
Riedel, one of the leading manufacturers of real-time networks for video, audio and communications, delivered a comprehensive intercom solution combing a wired Artist matrix intercom setup with a wireless Acrobat digital communications solution. The Ukrainian systems integrator Comtel was responsible for the installation.
For their two broadcast studios in Kiev and Donezk TRK, one of the leading Ukrainian broadcast networks, needed a flexible intercom solution that not only provided a commas infrastructure in both studios but also offered a possibility to connect the two distant studios. Furthermore, TRK needed a solution for wireless communications at the Kiev studio that provided integration into the wired intercom system.
At the heart of the installation in Kiev, Riedel installed two Artist 128 mainframes. The two mainframes or connected via a dual fibre ring and provide full system redundancy. Due to its modular approach, Artist systems can be expanded easily with additional matrices and ports to form one single matrix with sizes up to 1,024x1,024 non-blocking ports. Nine Aritst 1000 series and 37 Artist 2000 series control panels are installed in Kiev. The secondary audio channel of the Artist 1000 provides digital audio in broadcast quality offering the distinct advantage to realise commentator audio via control panels for example.
VoIP client cards provide the VoIP-connections to the remote Artist 32 installation in the TRK Donezk studio. The Artist 32 replaces the older Artist M installation that was already set up on Donezk several years ago. Several Artist control panels in Donezk are remotely connected to the Artist installation in Kiev via VoIP.
Mikhail Smagin, Head of System and Network Connection Division at TRK, said: "We were already avid Riedel Artist users before we decided to upgrade our system. Riedel's modularity allows for flexible infrastructure and lets us expand our system according to our demands. This makes the Riedel Artist technology a real long-term investment. Artist's flexibility in terms of connections gives us the opportunity to realise specialised applications such as our remote installation in this case."
The Acrobat installation in Kiev provides a wireless infrastructure of 13 Beltpacks in total. They are seamlessly integrated into the wired Artist intercom system. Acrobat is a flexible full-duplex wireless communications technology that provides a licence-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. Because of its VoIP-over-DECT technology it shows no interference with IEM or radio microphones and is perfectly suited for broadcast applications.
