Desmet Studios Upgrades Intercom Intelligibility With RTS ODIN

Desmet Studios has upgraded its intercom system to an RTS solution based around an ODIN OMNEO digital intercom matrix working in tandem with KP-Series keypanels.

Based in an art deco building in the Plantage district of Amsterdam, Desmet Studios is home to various radio and TV shows while also providing facilities for recording online TV, video and podcasts, as well as hosting live and hybrid events. The legacy intercom solution at the private studio was no longer fit for purpose, requiring increasingly high volumes to achieve sufficient intelligibility. To help them overcome this challenge, Desmet approached the knowledgeable team at Amptec.

The solution installed at Desmet features a 48-port ODIN digital intercom matrix at the heart of the system, serving as the communications hub for the various recording spaces across the facility. This has been combined with three DKP-4016 and the same number of DKP-3016 desktop keypanels, as well as nine KP-3016 and a KP-5032 rack-mounted keypanels to ensure that all of the control rooms and studios can communicate seamlessly.

It was a simple and challenge-free process for the studio team to remove the previous intercom system and replace it with the modern RTS solution. And the results have proved to be very positive for everyone involved.
