The Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), the national broadcaster of South Korea that’s headquartered in Yeouido, Seoul, recently underwent large-scale renovations to its communications infrastructure, including the installation of the RTS intercom platform to implement a 100-percent IP-networked connection between 12 of its broadcast locations around the country.
The system utilizes the uniquely OMNEO IP technology for audio transmission and control. With support for Dante, OCA, ST 2110 and AES67/70, OMNEO provides users with the interoperability and scalability to interface with thousands of other devices throughout their network.
The RTS equipment list includes an ADAM full-size modular matrix at the heart of the system equipped with OMI OMNEO matrix interface cards. A pair of TM-10K trunkmasters serve as central nodes in the system, leveraging another proprietary technology – RTS Trunking – to optimize connectivity between/via intercom matrices at the various other locations, creating a single virtual working location. More than 75 RTS keypanels and 47 OEI-2 OMNEO external interfaces complete the installation, while 18 VLink virtual matrix software licenses allow remote access to the system.
Hyudo Kwon of KBS and Taewan Kim of system integrator Hyundai AutoEver worked with RTS key dealer BEEx Korea and Donggyu Lee and Edward Lim of RTS to help ensure the project’s success.
