RTS Equips Indy 500 for Live Broadcast

RTS has equipped two North Eastern Production vehicles, six Indianapolis Motor Speedway Productions trucks, and several smaller video and RF hub trucks in the communications compound for the live broadcast of the 100th Indianapolis 500 race.

Six RTS KP-5032 keypanels will be located around the track in various shot spotter and camera locations, with two located in the track and event control room to enable seamless communications for a successful production of the important anniversary event.

The 100th Indianapolis 500 race is the first live demonstration of the new RVON software package designed for KP-5032s.

The 100th Indianapolis 500 race is the first live demonstration of the new RVON software package designed for KP-5032s.

All race day communications relating to the actual production — including camera cues, commercial breaks, specific camera shots, commentator comments — will be supported by an RTS ADAM intercom. The Indianapolis 500 race’s broadcast will be the first live demonstration of the new RVON software package designed for KP-5032s.

Previously, implementing RVON required buying hardware daughter cards, pulling the keypanel out of service, installing the RVON card, returning the keypanel to the rack, and configuring it. With the new KP-5032, the process is much easier. Adding RVON simply involves a visit to the RTS web site to download the free RVON software and loading it onto the KP-5032 for configuration.
