SETEMEDIA´S new OB Unit relies on KROMA by AEQ Intercom System 23/11/2016
SETEMEDIA, the Spanish audiovisual production company with more than 20 years of experience in the sector dedicated to programs production, documentaries, retransmissions, etc..., takes into service a new 8 Camera HD mobile unit to become part of its abundant technical resources.
Among the equipment that is part of this new outside broadcast mobile unit can be highlighted AEQ’s KROMA Intercom matrix TH5000 with 16 digital and 4 analogue ports. To the Matrix is connected three 16 keys user panels, one for each technical and production area of the OB unit. A TR7000 Interface frame has also been connected to the Matrix, providing the necessary Digital/Analogue port conversions.
"The TR7000 is a good starting point to be able to complete the interface frame with different communication solutions offered to us by AEQ. The advantages of this intercom system are clear: the connections of the panels using RJ45 allows us to very quickly deploy and configure as per the requirement of each event and if needed, to connect the OB Unit to an external Control. Versatility and simplicity we value as very important, especially when configuring the system and its panel to fit each type of broadcast. We have different “maps” of configuration prepared as “templates” that we can deploy at any instant. We can also prepare and load a new configuration “in-situ” using the Ethernet or USB connectivity, thus adapting the panels to the needs of every event" says Andrés Díez, CTO at SETEMEDIA.
"Also, we have completed our OB Unit with an AEQ Stratos IP/ISDN AudioCodec with two stereo channels for our high quality audio links. We are very satisfied, it’s really trustworthy equipment and a great value for money" explains Andrés Díez.
Setemedia has prepared to incorporate a second dual channel audiocodec to its new OB Van to be able to meet the need for additional audio links when the type of broadcast so requires. “Both the space distribution of the vehicle and the equipment integration of this new OB Van has been designed and executed by SETEMEDIA'S technical personnel. When we were scouting for equipment and suppliers we did not hesitate to rely on AEQ. Their customer care and the reliability of their equipment if just great" says SETEMEDIA’s CTO.
