Hungarian outside broadcast company Liga TV has equipped its newest HD OB van with a Riedel solution including the Artist digital matrix intercom, Acrobat digital wireless intercom, RiFace universal radio interface, and the MediorNet realtime media network. OB3 was supplied and integrated by Rexfilm.
The Riedel solution in OB3 is identical to that in Liga TV’s OB2, with the addition of a MediorNet system, giving the company TV fibre-based signal transport capabilities. When more than one truck is required for a production, Liga TV can use OB2 and OB3 in tandem, connecting the two Riedel intercom solutions to serve as one.
“We had tremendous success with Riedel equipment in our OB2 truck, which was Hungary’s first large HD OB van, so the decision to incorporate the company’s products into our new OB3 HD unit was quite simple,” said Zoltan Tihanyi, sound engineer at Liga TV. “The reliability, connectivity, and rich feature sets of Riedel intercom systems, as well as their popularity and widespread use, will be valuable as we extend our international activity.”
In addition to broadcasting matches from Hungary’s national football league, the OTP Bank League, Liga TV has completed international projects including production of various UEFA championship games and the LEN European Swimming Championship.
