KTV installs Clear-Com for mobile production vehicles

Published: ASIA

JAPAN: MTC recently supplied Clear-Com Eclipse-PiCo digital matrix systems and V-Series intercom panels for Kansai Telecasting Corporation’s (KTV) fleet of mobile production vehicles. KTV provides its viewers with a wide selection of drama, sports, news, documentary and variety programming, as well as live entertainment, mobile content and feature film production.

The Eclipse-PiCo was chosen for KTV’s vehicles due to its compact 1RU design, whist the V-Series 12-key lever control panels are set in the vehicles’ programme director, switcher and video engineer positions. The Eclipse-PiCo matrix systems are also integrated with KTV’s other communications equipment, such VHF, UHF and four-way radios, which are required for satellite newsgathering. By connecting the Eclipse-PiCo system in each van along with a variety of other systems, reliable communications coverage has been extended to every KTV production space. KTV is also able to integrate future system purchases with the Eclipse-PiCo systems they have in place.

‘We were already using an Eclipse-PiCo in one van in our fleet,’ said Yasuhiro Asakura, KTV production engineering department media engineer. ‘When it came time to upgrade our other vans, we decided to continue with Clear-Com since our existing system has performed flawlessly and our staff members are familiar with its capabilities. Since the integration of the Eclipse systems, we have been even more pleased with how they have helped our workflow.’

‘With the Eclipse-PiCo, crew members are able to collaborate smoothly across all their production spaces,’ added Koji Kashimoto, director of MTC’s Osaka office. ‘They also have significant control over their systems with ECS, can handle the unexpected quickly and are able to work with great efficiency.’

‘We’re proud that one of the leading broadcasters in Kansai has chosen to expand their communications setup with Clear-Com,’ enthused Peter Giddings Clear-Com’s regional sales manager, Brazil (broadcast-only), Japan, Korea, Australia and New Zealand. ‘The small size and rich capability offered by the Eclipse-PiCo system is a huge advantage for small to mid-size production environments such as KTV’s fleet of vehicles.’
