South African TV Giant MNET Relies on Broadcasting & Communications Systems from Telex/RTS

The South African private TV pioneer MNET reaches millions of homes throughout Africa with its programmes. To make sure it maintains its leading position, the company is investing in a variety of broadcasting and communications systems from Telex and RTS
Straubing / Munich As a pioneer of private television in Africa, MNET (Electronic Media Network PTY Ltd) has written TV history. And today, the company based in Gauteng near Johannesburg continues to occupy a commanding position in the African media landscape, thanks to its diverse range of subscription channels. To underpin its market leadership, the company is once again investing in equipment from Telex and RTS.
The entire intercom system covering the studios and broadcasting center in Johannesburg is made up of Telex and RTS equipment: three ADAM matrices connected by fiber optic cables and new TBX-Tribus cards and one hundred and fifty KP-632 keypanels. The bulk of the new acquisitions, however, relate to the reequipping with the latest technology of the company’s fleet of outside broadcast vehicles. MNET already had one large OB truck built by Sony UK, which has been equipped with an ADAM matrix from RTS (with 96 ports linked to KP-32 and KP-612 keypanels). Now MNET is arming itself with a new high-definition OB truck. The aim is to construct a mobile “fly-away? system that can be used for all outside-house events. For this, all the requisite systems are integrated into racks, these being three Cronus frames, more than a hundred KP-632 keypanels, and an integrated RVON-C card.
