TELEX/RTS intercom matrix in the newly refurbished State Theatre of Mecklenburg in Schwerin

January 1, 2010
The State Theatre of Mecklenburg in Schwerin is one of the finest theatres in Germany. Since 1836, it has provided a stage for drama, ballet, opera, orchestral performances and even puppet shows. After closing in May 2009 to permit an extensive programme of refurbishment to go ahead, the theatre reopened its doors at the beginning of November.

The first performances in the newly renovated theatre, the premiere of Yasmina Reza’s play Der Gott des Gemetzels and a concert by the Mecklenburg State Orchestra, on the 7th and 8th November respectively, were also the first under the aegis of the new stage management system. Designed and installed by the Hamburg-based system integrator Amptown System Company (ASC), the new system from TELEX/RTS satisfies the complex and diverse requirements of the Schwerin theatre. The nerve centre of the stage manager’s station is now a Cronus intercom matrix from RTS.

Erhardt Petrich, the State Theatre of Mecklenburg’s Production Engineer, had very clear ideas about what he wanted from the new system. “The specification we prepared stipulated that the stage management system should be flexible, expandable and tailored to the requirements of the new understage machinery.” The latter integrates infrared cameras, for example, that allow the stage manager to discern, even in the dark, whether an elevator podium is occupied by an actor or can safely be lowered.” The stage management system covers not only the stage in the main theatre but also all backstage areas,” says Petrich; these include places like the canteen, shops and trap room as well as the green room, dressing rooms and wings.

Stefan Thomsen, ASC’s Project Manager, was responsible for the installation of the stage management console. “The new SM console is the nerve centre of the main theatre. The control devices are located centrally in a 19” cabinet in the cellar. We’ve positioned the TELEX/RTS intercom stations linked to the system at strategic locations within the theatre.” These allow the stage manager to communicate directly with stagehands and performers wherever they may be backstage.

The Cronus intercom matrix is the central control element for verbal communication. It establishes command channels, controls the public address system, allows for the introduction of monitor signals and activates a miscellany of other functions. With the help of the connected keypanels (RTS KP-12 and EKP-20) not only can messages be relayed over the theatre’s existing 100 volt system but special communication channels can be established to meet the needs of each production.

In the State Theatre of Mecklenburg in Schwerin, RTS intercom technology has once again demonstrated its flexibility and wide compatibility, which enables here the state-of-the-art new RTS equipment to network effortlessly with the ageing 100-volt system already in place.

Peter Meißner, the State Theatre of Mecklenburg’s Technical Director, had been looking for a flexible, made-to-measure and moreover affordable solution; all it took was a visit to the Deutsche Schauspielhaus (German Playhouse) in Hamburg to convince him of ASC’s credentials and the case for a solution from RTS. “In Hamburg, ASC had designed an integrated system that was easy to operate. I wanted just such a system tailored to the requirements of our theatre – and now we have one!”
