Riedel provides IP communication solutions for Shaanxi Broadcasting Corp.’s new OB van
Shaanxi Broadcasting Corporation has unveiled their new 4K OB van. The OB vehicle features an advanced IP intercom solution from Riedel Communications. It is equipped with a Riedel Artist 64 intercom matrix, RSP-1232HL and RSP-2318 SmartPanels, deployed in a spine-and-leaf configuration.
The Riedel systems communicate with other devices via Layer-3 routing, which enables both resilience and flexibility in signal routing. The NMOS API running on Artist facilitates centralized control, while IS-04 and IS-05 support streamlines multicast routing for faster commissioning and system changes and a simpler overall workflow. To maintain synchronization, Riedel’s Artist system locks reliably to the system PTP timing server, whether connecting directly or via a boundary clock. This feature also makes it easy for the OB van’s intercom system to connect to other systems in IP mode.
The OB van’s first assignment will be the live broadcast of the 14th National Games of the People’s Republic of China, which begin on Sept. 15 in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province.
“We are honored to be providing a full IP-based communication system for Shaanxi Broadcasting Corporation and to contribute to the live broadcast of the 14th National Games of the People’s Republic of China”, said Ms. Gao Jian, General Manager of Riedel China. “China is already at the forefront in implementing IP infrastructure for radio and television. Together, media convergence and the emergence of 5G have enabled China’s radio and television broadcasters to take another leap ahead in this field. Riedel has been an intercom and transmission solutions provider for more than 35 years, and we’re proud to be supporting China’s advances in deploying IP-based systems”.
