Spanish TV Broadcaster Bound for Success with RTS & Telex

Barcelona, Spain Now a year since it first went on air, the prospects for the nationwide Spanish private broadcaster La Sexta look excellent, with ratings on the rise, healthy advertising sales, and studios equipped to face the challenges of the future—with intercom equipment from RTS & Telex.
With the launch of La Sexta in November 2005, the populations of Madrid and Barcelona – joined in June of this year by viewers throughout Spain – gained a new private TV channel. In the twelve months it has been on air, La Sexta has seen its ratings rise steadily and a gratifying return from advertising sales. The professionalism and ambition of the company’s managers are typified by their decision to invest in intercom systems from RTS & Telex.
La Sexta’s broadcast studios are in Barcelona and its news editorial offices in Madrid. Post-production is divided between the two, and the task of streamlining communications between, as well as within, the two centers was entrusted to RTS & Telex’s Madrid-based partner Unitecnic.
In Barcelona, Unitecnic installed an ADAM 64 matrix with RVON and Mini Trunkmasters, two ISDN-2005 interfaces and a variety of keypanels (9x DKP-12, 5x KP-32 and 5x MKP-12). In Madrid an ADAM 48 with RVON was combined with four different types of keypanels (6x KP-32-16, 5x KP-32, 2x DKP-12, and 3x MKP-4), as well as four ISDN-2005 interfaces, a BTR-800 wireless intercom system and three TR-825 UHF transceivers.
The system that unites the studios in the Castilian and Catalonian capitals is modular in structure, allowing for expansion in any direction at either end.
“We’ve had no complaints from La Sexta since the installation,” reports Manuel Martin of Unitecnic. “Quite the reverse, in fact: their technicians are highly impressed by the reliability, the wide range of possibilities and the ease-of-use of the system.”
La Sexta, incidentally, which is jointly owned by GAMP (Grupo Audiovisual de Medios de Producción) and the Mexican TV network Televisa, has a license to operate two more TDT TV channels.
