Israeli broadcaster KAN entrusted Clear-Com to develop its communications system for the Qatar World Cup

KAN Channel 11 is an Israel-based public television station that has offered the emotion of the World Cup to their audience. The Station has partnered with systems integrator AVCom to outfit an OB Van for remote production coverage. The objective was to connect the communication system with the production crew in the OB and with the rest of the team in Israel, the camera team at the venues, and the presenters located in the KAN studio in Qatar. They chose Clear-Com solutions.

“The production value is always enhanced when the crew can communicate clearly and quickly. Collaborating with Clear-Com on this championship has simply reinforced that their extensive experience in these types of large-scale and often high-pressure events ensures we have a flawless result for our communications,” explains said Tsachi Korner, Senior Presales Engineer at AVCom.

AVCom deployed an Eclipse® HX Digital Matrix Intercom System for the company on the core. This solution interfaces with endpoints including the V-Series Iris IP User keypanels and FreeSpeak beltpacks. Also, they added Dante interfaces and MADI cards to KAN’s communication system to provide interoperability with a Dante-based audio-over-IP infrastructure.

Both AVCom and KAN explained their reasons when asked why Clear-Com. “By using Clear-Com equipment, we’re able to make our production process much smoother,” said Tsachi. “We’re always confident when we propose the Clear-Com solutions to our clients, as they are so reliable and scalable, and offer such powerful capabilities. This enables our clients to produce a superior event.”
