Wuppertal, Germany (March 21, 2018)—TVI Portugal is using Riedel Communications’ Artist digital matrix intercom system to support its national news, sports and entertainment programming.
Managed by a small team at TVI, the Artist system has been installed as part of a facility-wide modernization program and operates with an existing conference system to allow for communications across three fiber-connected studios on site and via IFB connections to several external locations. TVI offers daily live news and other programming, as well as live coverage of various sporting events.
The Riedel system is deployed across TVI studios dedicated to news, virtual production and entertainment; the three areas are linked by centrally and dynamically managed IFBs and mix-minuses with 2x39 simultaneous direct inputs from three different consoles (direct outs and mix minus) being used to create feeds.
TVI staff in both audio and master control can use presets that recall snapshots of frequently used system configurations. Artist simplifies management of fiber lines between the studios and serves as an audio router for the 48 VoIP lines that facilitate guest commentary and live call-in contributors to news programs.

TVI put the Artist to its first major test for coverage of Portugal’s national elections, a huge show incorporating 37 concurrent IFBs to different points in the country. As it expands its channel offerings in Portugal and beyond, the broadcaster plans to continue modernizing and upgrading its communications capabilities with further deployments of Riedel gear.
