Malta (June 23, 204)—Public Broadcasting Services Ltd. (PBS), Malta’s public broadcasting company, has installed the Eclipse HX-Median Digital Matrix platform to provide a communication channel throughout its new Creativity Hub.
The installation is part of a major facility overhaul for the national broadcaster, which is responsible for the TVM and TVM2 television channels and the Radio Malta (93.7FM), Radju Malta 2 (106.6FM) and Magic (91.7FM) radio stations. Forestals FGL Information Technology Ltd. sold and installed the Eclipse HX-Median system.
PBS required an intercom system to provide talkback communications throughout its Creativity Hub, which houses three HD studios, 10 edit suites, two control rooms and several other technical rooms. The system needed to be able to work on the facility’s existing CAT6 wiring without the need for further cabling, and had to be configurable through software. PBS also wanted a system that was scalable and able to integrate with third-party systems, and could facilitate the use of VoIP technology as well as analogue.
A total of 21 V-Series keypanels were installed at PBS, some connected over 4-wire and some over the IP network depending on their location.
