As part of Channel 2 News’ major studio upgrade to HD, the Israeli news broadcaster has selected Clear-Com’s Eclipse HX digital matrix intercom system for critical communication between galleries, studios and production teams on location. The system will be supplied and installed by Clear-Com’s channel partner Onset Systems Engineering.
Channel 2 News is a long standing user of Clear-Com systems but the studio refit presented an ideal opportunity to upgrade to the latest technology, and Clear-Com is discussing the implementation here in Amsterdam.
Rami Daniel, CTO, Channel 2 News, said: “We selected to work with Clear-Com again because we have been very pleased with our current communications system. The new Eclipse HX system is able to respond and deal with the requirements of complex TV broadcasts in a synchronised way.”
The system installed at Channel 2 News comprises of the Eclipse HX digital matrix intercom; Production Maestro; MADI and IVC cards; LQ-R and the new 32 Key Lever panels. The system will seamlessly integrate with Channel 2 News’ new Calrec Artemis console.
