X Factor Italy broadcast producer relies on RTS intercoms

April 18, 2018
  • One TV’s new outside broadcast truck equipped with comprehensive RTS intercom solution with an ADAM-M matrix, KP-Series keypanels and PH headsets
  • RTS intercom system designed by Professional Show used on the live broadcast of the 11th edition of X Factor Italy
  • IP-based workflow throughout production site based on OMNEO IP technology
Straubing, April 2018 – The X Factor is now represented in more than 51 local versions around the world, and for the 11th edition of X Factor Italy, broadcasting specialist One TV has fielded a newly constructed outside broadcast (OB) truck complete with a comprehensive RTS intercom solution. The system was designed and built by One TV’s parent company – and Italy’s largest broadcast systems integrator – Professional Show.

Based on its long experience with RTS, Professional Show designed and built the OB truck with OMNEO media networking architecture at its heart, providing the ultimate IP solution for professional intercom applications.

“For a production like X Factor Italy everything depends completely on a reliable intercom system – without intercom there is no broadcast!” explains RTS Senior Sales Manager Nico Lewis. “Because of their previous experience with RTS, both Andrea Gianolli (CEO) and Stefano Gianolli (Audio Specialist) were quick to realize the potential of our solution – the RTS products that they’ve used in other systems over the years have never let them down, because they are based on proven technology that is totally stable.”

In the truck, an RTS ADAM-M mid-size modular matrix equipped with an OMI OMNEO interface card facilitates RTS KP-5032 and KP-4016 keypanels as well as RTS DKP-4016 desktop keypanels. With the choice of OMNEO IP technology, the OB truck operates a fully IP-based workflow, connecting directly to the production site’s L3 Ethernet network as well as combining seamlessly with any Dante-enabled audio devices.

The system also offers the ability to remotely configure any keypanel from a supervisor keypanel with the RTS AZedit configuration software, allowing supervisors to manage multiple ADAM intercom systems, re-assign users to different ports, and dynamically add intercom hardware. Operators can also individually adjust their own parameters such as equalization and noise gates – creating plenty of flexibility for all users.

One TV’s Stefano Gianolli confirmed that RTS’ advanced technology made it the ideal choice for the high specification OB truck. “The system is working very well, after a planned period of testing and commissioning. We are very pleased with the result and delighted to contribute to the success of The X Factor Italy.”
