RTS Goes Nuts with New Members of KP Key Panel Series

Intercom specialist RTS further extended its range of key panels at the 2016 NAB Show with three new members of the KP-Series. These additions offer high definition displays and better operation using only one key, plus full networking on the lead model.

RTS recently introduced units for the KP-Series include two key panels and one expansion unit, all aimed at broadcast production studio and outside broadcast applications, in addition to theatres, sports venues and the house of worship market. All three have the same HD colour displays and operational characteristics as the higher-end models in the KP-Series. They are intended for productions where the user needs are already established and which do not require the full connectivity found on other units in the range.

The KP-3016 is a one-rack device offering 14 talk/listen keys and two call waiting features. It can be connected to analogue RTS matrix ports for basic communications requirements but for more complicated installations is able to link into the OMNEO media networking infrastructure. This uses the Audinate Dante Ethernet/audio over IP format for carrying media and data, with system control covered by OCA (Open Control Architecture) technology. OMNEO is designed to run on widely available IT equipment, which is said to make for easier installation and low cost upkeep.

The KP-3016A has the same features but only an analogue port. The EKP-3016 is a one-rack expander key panel, which adds 16 talk/listen keys for either the KP-3016 or the KP-3016A. All three can work with present RTS analogue matrices and will be "forward compatible" with OMNEO open IP installations.
