Los Angeles, CA (June 4, 2015)—Atlanta, GA-based Turner Studios is replacing its aging intercom system with new technology from Delec.
As the broadcast production division of Turner Entertainment Group, which provides turnkey services for film, video, and audio production for all of the Turner Entertainment Networks, Turner Studios’ new Delec intercom system will tie together the studios and offices at the sprawling facility to streamline workflow and enhance communication.
German intercom manufacturer Delec will deliver a 2,048-port intercom system comprised of 140 intercom panels, all of which will incorporate redundant Dante audio-over-IP connectivity. The Delec Dante interface supports 64 bidirectional audio channels or up to 32 Delec Intercom Panels (or any combination of audio signals and Intercom Panels).
The Delec intercom system to be deployed at Turner Studios also includes 7 MADI interfaces to connect to the facility’s existing audio network. Further, the system will include a 128-line PBX-Gateway and several analog 4-wires for third party integration.
Deployment of the new Delec intercom system is expected to be completed by October 2015.
Arnie Toshner, vice president of sales and marketing for Salzbrenner Stagetec Media Group, commented, “We are both honored and delighted that Turner Studios has chosen Delec intercom technology for their in-house communication. The new Delec intercom panels will bring Dante interactivity and single cable connectivity convenience to Turner Studios’ production facility and, in the process, provide a new level of communication that, we’re confident, will enhance the ability of the staff to work more efficiently.”
