Alton, UK (February 28, 2012)—Systems integrator Broadcast Networks has selected the Clear-Com Encore Partyline System for the company’s new Land Rover Live Production Vehicle.
Broadcast Networks chose the Clear-Com partyline system to aid the changing uses of the truck, which include SNG, audio, film and live production. The system will be used primarily for communications between the OB van staff members within the truck and in the field.
“The Clear-Com Partyline system is able to interface with and support the maximum number of cameras that we can use in the vehicle; it has everything we need in a convenient-sized package,” says Paul Wallis, sales director for Broadcast Networks. “We’ve designed a cutting-edge 4×4 live production vehicle, and we needed to have intercoms that won’t let us down during productions.”
To adhere to the space of the Land Rover, Broadcast Networks designed the audio gear, which includes the Clear-Com Encore MS704 Main Station, to fit into rack layouts. With this solution, Broadcast Networks can swap out the different types of gear, easily transforming the truck from an SNG vehicle to a live production vehicle, from one day to the next. The company also forecasts the use of the truck in audio and film production.
