Andover, UK (May 1, 2017)—Sweden’s national public radio broadcaster, Sveriges Radio AB (SR), has installed a new intercom system at its Stockholm facility based on the Gemini III matrix system from Trilogy Communications, a Clear-Com company.
SR was seeking to replace its legacy intercom system with an IP/network based intercom solution, and expressed a desire for a stand-alone system with independent panels so as not to be limited by the platforms in its studios. The contract was won by Trilogy’s local distributor, Mediability, following a tender process.
Working together with Mediability, the Trilogy team developed a solution proposal based on Gemini III. They understood and met SR’s specific requirements for key tallies and busy labels, enabling the Trilogy system to operate in a similar way to the old system. A system demonstration proved that the Trilogy system could operate over the SR IP network.
The system comprises a 64-port Gemini III matrix intercom system with 64 channel DSP, MADI/AES interface and IP panel interfaces. 43 Trilogy 20-button, IP-connected Touch Desktop panels are used in the individual studios, while six of the 30-button, IP-connected Touch 2RU panels are installed in the MCR area.
A virtual panel app is used for mobile operators to connect remotely. Each panel can be configured individually depending on requirements. The system also features a ‘group talk’ function that was specially developed for SR.
