The Netherlands inaugurates new king  intercom systems from RTS ensure flawless communication
After 33 years on the throne, Queen Beatrix abdicated in favor of her son Willem-Alexander on April 30th. The event the first inauguration of a Dutch king for 124 years was followed by a television audience of millions around the world. The company responsible for most of the TV production was Hilversum-based UNITED, which captured images from three key locations: the royal palace on the Dam, Museum Square and the royal barge as it toured the canals of the capital. Five OB trucks were used to broadcast the festivities, along with just under 100 cameras, ten uplink trucks and 350 employees. This production differed from others primarily in its sheer importance, recalls Bolke Burnaby Lautier, Manager Operations Sports and Events with UNITED. With literally millions of viewers following the event live all over the world on TV, any technical failure could have proved catastrophic.
