Intercom technology the world can rely on.
Just a short while before the Olympics! TV crews from around the world are already in the starting blocks and are wrapping up the final tasks in their arduous preparation.

That is why RTS & Telex Intercom mobilized their teams to ensure the greatest sporting event in the world is broadcast reliably. All clients using RTS & Telex intercom systems can rely on systems engineers dispatched on-site and posted remotely. With this commitment, RTS & Telex unite their resources to ensure that the greatest victory (yours) is realized.
