NEP Visions equips new OB trucks with the MADI-16 Plus card from RTS/TELEX

March 7, 2011
-- The British broadcasting service provider NEP Visions has integrated the MADI-16 Plus card from RTS/TELEX into its new OB trucks, Gemini 1 and 2

-- The card connects the ADAM frames to the trucks' audio consoles

-- Via coaxial and fibre connections, up to 64 I/O channels can be scaled for all AES-10-compliant devices.

Based in Staines (Middlesex, UK), NEP Visions has been covering major sporting, cultural and social events for over 25 years. In fitting out its new 3Gb/s OB vans, Gemini 1 and 2, the independent outside broadcast service provider opted once again for systems from RTS/TELEX: flawless communication is ensured by a 196 x 196 ADAM matrix with fibre-linked TBX-Tribus expanders. Through the integration of the MADI-16 Plus card, the intercom system can now be linked with the OB vans' two Calrec Apollo digital audio consoles.

Via coaxial or fibre connections, up to 64 I/O channels can be scaled with the MADI-16 Plus card for all AES-10-compliant devices. In its basic configuration, the card permits the integration of 16 digital audio I/0 channels of a MADI stream. The number of audio channels can be increased in steps to sixty-four by software upgrade. The card operates with sampling rates of 44.1 or 48 kHz and is equipped with Wordclock and TV-Sync inputs, whilst the MADI connection is implemented via BNC or LC plugs on the connector panel.

Explaining why for over ten years now the company has opted consistently for systems from RTS/TELEX, Paul Fournier, NEP Visions' Head of Sound says: "The systems from RTS/TELEX have proved their reliability over many years. Furthermore, the overwhelming majority of freelance sound engineers are very familiar with them. They can all program the systems without any problems. That makes our job considerably easier."

NEP UK’s' fleet of outside broadcast vehicles now includes fourteen HD, six SD and six VT trucks. The UK group also offers studio solutions in Cardiff. Among the high-class events NEP Visions has covered recently are Wimbledon, the Cheltenham Festival, the British Open (golf), Hard Rock Calling and T In The Park. Additional projects included the Pope’s Visit to the UK as well as the Ryder Cup.

Managing Director Steve Jenkins is extremely proud of the two new editions to NEP Visions' outside broadcasting fleet: “The challenge was to move Outside Broadcasting forward, and to provide a feast of technological innovation and power framed in a new and exciting truck design. Great credit to the team here at Visions who have worked tirelessly to realize an answer to that challenge. Gemini 1 and 2 are what superior technical design is about; they encapsulate the future and provide a fantastic addition to the NEP Visions fleet, they are capable of withstanding the demands of any OB asked of them.”
