ITV adopts Clear-Com’s Eclipse HX-Delta digital matrix platform

Clear-Com’s digital communications solutions have been adopted as part of a major HD restructure at six of ITV’s regional news studios. The System Integrator IPE designed a template system, featuring the Eclipse HX-Delta digital matrix platform with V-Series rotary control panels, MVX and MADI cards, that has been rolled out across ITV Tyne Tees (Newcastle), ITV West Country (Bristol), ITV Central (Birmingham), ITV Anglia (Norwich), ITV Wales (Cardiff) and ITV Channel (Jersey and Guernsey).

 

“The Clear-Com system was chosen because it is flexible, easy to set up and provides exceptionally clear audio quality even between remote locations, but above all it is an extremely reliable solution,” claims Ray Bragg, Director, IPE.

 

The Eclipse HX-Delta digital matrix platform provides communications backbone for distribution of audio and data signals across thousands of users within an intercom system network. The Eclipse HX-Delta system installed at each regional studio provides talkback to the news studios and satellite news gathering trucks. V-Series rotary control panels are also installed at ITV’s remote bureaux in order to connect to the main studio via IP.

 

“The MADI capability within the system has enabled us to connect directly to ITV’s SSL audio desks, which is very helpful, and the IP capabilities are also key as several systems in the remote sites are IP-based,” adds Bragg. “I’ve worked with the Clear-Com team many times over the years. They are always extremely cooperative with solutions to optimize workflow, and we work exceptionally well together,” he concludes.

 

“We have a longstanding relationship with the team at IPE, who have a solid knowledge and understanding of ITV’s requirements ensuring successful installations across each of the ITV regions,” has said Damien Egan UK Regional Sales Manager, Clear-Com. “The Eclipse HX-Delta system consistently delivers exceptional system performance and its MADI and IP capabilities offer important options for customers with evolving workflows.”
