No broadcast without flawless communication
KitPlus Reliable and fail-safe communications for the broadcast of live events are more important than ever. On site, broadcasters only have one chance to grab the perfect image for the viewer with time being a crucial factor. The larger the event, the more viewers it reaches and the higher the risk that something could go wrong. As a consequence, reliable, non-blocking, high-performance communication between all participants is essential. In broadcasting, nothing can happen unless everyone can talk and communicate with each other, explains Nico Lewis, Senior Sales Manager RTS Intercoms. That is why high profile live events such as Wimbledon, the Winter Games or the Superbowl rely on RTS intercom systems to provide communication in their broadcasting OB trucks.
