Clear-Com Provided Smooth, Efficient Live Remote Production Of 2022 World Football Championships
Israel’s free-to-air public television station KAN Channel 11 partnered with AVCOM, a prominent systems integrator and Clear-Com partner, to outfit its new OB van for remote production coverage for its Israeli audience.
KAN 11’s coverage included multiple tournament matches, exclusive interviews, studio reporting, and post-game commentary. The primary goal of the communication system was to connect the production crew in the OB van in Israel, the camera team at the venues, and the presenters located in the KAN studio in Qatar. With a month of play and eight venues within a 21-mile radius, production team communications needed to be seamless and reliable.
KAN’s decision to remotely produce its tournament coverage at home required them to increase their communication reach even more.
AVCOM worked with Clear-Com to configure an integrated wired and wireless communications intercom infrastructure for KAN, with an Eclipse HX Digital Matrix Intercom System at the heart of the system. Eclipse seamlessly interfaces with endpoints including the V-Series Iris IP User keypanels and FreeSpeak beltpacks, supporting direct point-to-point, one-to-many group, partyline, and group connections.
The Eclipse E-IPA high-density IP interface cards provided low-latency streams and high bandwidth support, ensuring that KAN Channel 11 had full compatibility with all the network audio standards, the ability to run its digital audio matrix on a standard IP network, and link all its Clear-Com products.
Dante interfaces and MADI cards were added to KAN’s communication system for an easy way to integrate intercom signals and provide interoperability with the audio-over-IP infrastructure. The addition of a FreeSpeak II digital wireless intercom system including the wireless beltpacks and IP-connected transceivers provides KAN with an untethered connection for future productions.
