National Broadcasters Elect RTS Intercom for the 2008 US Presidential Race

The voice of a nation changed history last month. As America tuned in to eagerly await the results, broadcasters stayed connected with RTS Intercom to ensure realtime communication.
New York, NY In this year’s election 126 million Americans turned out to vote; the most in history. The television audience was assuredly massive as well, which meant that national broadcasters had to be ready for seamless, split-second updates during the entire night. That level of coordination is only possible with a state-of-the-art communications system- such as with RTS Digital Matrix Intercom.
One national broadcaster setup a duplicate of their news system, and had dozens of KP-32 keypanels throughout every location including the studio, main campus, and two HD production trucks in Times Square, which was packed with starry-eyed spectators. In addition, remote stations in Connecticut, Washington DC, and London were also seamlessly tied in. This was accomplished using RTS ADAM matrix frames with the new AIO-16 16-port analog I/O cards. The frames were hooked together with RTS Intelligent Trunking Technology that included trunkmaster frames and RTS control software for PC workstations.
What is “RTS Intelligent Trunking“? It is no less than your own private version of the long distance telephone system, allowing users of two or more (up to 31) separate matrices to communicate with one another instantaneously and seamlessly with all the same presets, scroll lists, and tallies available on local matrices. Whether the systems are located in adjacent studios or continents away from one another, intelligent trunking brings all your communications together.
RTS support technicians, including Chuck Roberts and brothers Scott and Michael Gilman, were on hand to ensure a smooth broadcast. One network’s Director of Engineering praised RTS technicians for being well-informed and very supportive. The DE also commented on the night’s broadcast being nearly perfect.
The 2008 election was a major milestone in several respects, not the least of which is the continued advancement in communication. As the country moves forward, so do the innovations from RTS Intercom.
