Hebden Bridge, UK (August 17, 2018)—China-based Shanghai Media Tech (SMT) recently outfitted its HD9 OB van and Electronic Field Production (EFP) system with a Calrec Artemis Shine and Artemis Light audio console, respectively, in preparation for the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia and the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
YuanYue, supervisor of the technical department at SMT commented, “We’re increasingly expanding our capabilities for 3D/4K capture and production, visual creativity and product development—as evidenced by our newly upgraded OB van which is one of the first IP-based A/V broadcast systems in China. For this, we needed a console with rich IP protocol and interface support like the Artemis Shine. And for our EFP system, we needed a console natively designed to have a main and a sidecar surface, and the Artemis Light was the ideal fit.”
Calrec’s official Chinese distributor Rightway Audio Consultants for SMT, part of the Shanghai Media Group (SMG) handled the installation. As a longstanding provider of equipment and solutions to the broadcast market, the company’s core business covers television program broadcast, pre-production, post-packaging, transmission, station network operation and more.
According to Dave Letson, VP of sales for Calrec, the project “underscores the true benefits of the Artemis product line, which includes impressive routing and processing capacity along with a modular design that lets the I/O boxes be easily swapped out during a production.”
