QTV Head of Operations Abdul Karim El Sabbagh
Dubai, UAE (July 3, 2013)-Qatar TV (QTV) has installed a Riedel Communications intercom system across its new 5,000-square-meter broadcast facility, which includes a 1,100-square-meter studio that is among the largest in the MENA region.
Sony Professional Solutions MEA supplied and integrated Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom, Acrobat digital wireless intercom, Performer digital partyline intercom, and RiFace universal radio interface systems as part the broadcast solution within the Doha facility.
“The Riedel system enabled and even facilitated open voice communications between our different teams, ultimately resulting in more streamlined and efficient operation here at QTV,” said Mr. Abdulkarim Elsabbagh, head of operations at QTV.
The intercom installation at QTV is centered on Riedel’s Artist platform. It features two Artist 128 mainframes and one Artist 64 mainframe, which are networked via a redundant fiber ring. QTV employs about 65 intercom panels from the Artist 2000 series. The Artist system also provides VoIP connectivity and MADI interfacing between the facility’s LAWO audio consoles.
The Performer digital partyline intercom and Acrobat digital wireless intercom systems are integrated with the Artist platform. QTV has also incorporated professional mobile radios into the installation via Riedel’s RiFace universal radio interface.
