Wuppertal, Germany (January 14, 2016)—In Japan, Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation (YTV) has deployed a new Riedel Communications Artist digital matrix intercom system at its Osaka broadcast facilities.
The new Artist system was installed in the Studio 3 control room as part of an ongoing upgrade of YTV's control room. It provides the communications functionality needed to manage internal signals and audio contribution from a variety of external sources, supporting production of programming including the variety show Miyane-ya.
YTV staff members use the new Artist system to keep an eye on incoming signals, which originate from sources including Japan Telecom and satellite circuits from other countries, and adjust them as they are incorporated into production communications. In addition to new Artist 64 and Artist 128 units, YTV works with an array of remote control panels, beltpacks, and headsets that ensure connectivity across the production team and presenters.
