China’s first 4K OB van
Wuppertal, Germany — In building China’s first 4K OB truck, Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation (JSTV) and systems integrator New Digital Technology Holdings (NDT) chose Riedel Communications’ Artist digital matrix intercom, MediorNet Compact Pro media network, and RockNet digital audio network to support clear, versatile communications and to enable straightforward fibre interconnection and signal exchange among production units.
Within the JSTV 4K OB truck, NDT installed three Artist 64 digital matrix intercom systems along with key panels and user stations, using a Riedel RiFace universal radio interface to link wired communication systems with radio systems. The new Riedel equipment interconnects seamlessly with an existing Artist system in JSTV’s 12-channel HD OB unit and provides a foundation for future expansion of the broadcaster’s fibre-based intercom communications.
