Madrid, Spain (October 11, 2012)-Spain’s national broadcaster, TelevisiÛn EspaÒola (TVE), has installed Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak digital wireless intercoms at its Madrid headquarters.
Forming two separate networks for each station, in Prado del Rey and TorrespaÒa, the systems together comprise 40 FreeSpeak antennas and 70 FreeSpeak beltpacks. This setup ensures that staff members have access to reliable communications, which is needed to coordinate TVE’s diverse array of channel programming.
“TVE has a heavy programming slate, which required wireless intercom systems that would stand up to such a frenetically paced production environment,” says Jose MarÌa Alvarez Gonzalez, general manager, QinMedia. “With its ease of integration with other third-party systems, the Eclipse-based FreeSpeak system has been a powerful intercom solution, especially because it is scalable and can be programmed quickly. Additionally, FreeSpeak provided dependable wireless coverage for all of the network’s channels, including its 24-hour news station.”
“Clear-Com understands the requirements of large, complex broadcasting operations such as TVE,” says Richard Palmer, regional sales manager, Southern Europe and Africa, Clear-Com. “These operations cannot afford any downtime, especially if it is caused by dropped communications. That’s why Clear-Com’s Eclipse-based FreeSpeak, as with all Clear-Com products, have been designed to be ultra-reliable. Clear-Com is pleased that TVE has recognized this, and has chosen to outfit some of its major stations with our wireless intercom solutions.”
