San Diego, CA (June 20, 2013)—CBT Systems has installed a variety of Studio Technologies communication and monitoring modules in a series of new interactive video production studios worldwide.
CBT Systems, a video media design, consulting and integration company servicing such clients as the NFL Network, MLB, NHL, Disney, Paramount and Universal, among others, installed Studio Technologies' 5121 Line/IFB output modules, 5130 party-line interface modules and StudioComm 78/79 7.1 surround monitoring systems in the facilities.
"We are in charge of systems design and integration, from procuring the equipment and pre-building those systems here in our San Diego facility, to doing the on-site installations around the world and then training the operators," says Darrell Wenhardt, president, CBT Systems. "The 5121 IFB and 5130 party-line modules are integrated via four-wire connection to a Riedel intercom matrix. This matrix is tied together via an IP data network between all of the facilities. I can sit in Los Angeles and communicate with London and Tokyo and all of the other remote facilities seamlessly. The 5100-Series Modules are the critical link between the intercom system and the operator."
"Many of the content producers we assist post videos using mono or stereo sound. This may be their first experience with surround production, so the simplicity of the StudioComm interface will help to make the transition as effortless as possible. Additionally, using the same equipment in all the studios around the world helps normalize the production environment for all participants."
