As the broadcast production division of Turner Entertainment Group, which provides turnkey services for film, video, and audio production for all of the Turner Entertainment Networks, Turner Studios’ new DELEC intercom system will effectively tie together the studios and offices at the facility to streamline workflow and enhance communication.
German intercom manufacturer DELEC will deliver a 2,048-port intercom system comprised of 140 intercom panels.
All 140 panels will incorporate redundant Dante audio-over-IP connectivity — a unique feature only DELEC can provide. The DELEC Dante interface supports 64 bidirectional audio channels or up to 32 DELEC Intercom Panels (or any combination of audio signals and Intercom Panels). Providing redundancy on all Dante devices, DELEC offers the first highly available audio-over-IP intercom solution.
The DELEC intercom system to be deployed at Turner Studios also includes 7 MADI interfaces to connect to the facility’s existing audio network. Further, the system will include a 128-line PBX-Gateway and several analog 4 wires for 3rd party integration.
Arnie Toshner, vice president of sales & marketing for Salzbrenner Stagetec Media Group, commented on Turner Studios’ selection of the new DELEC intercom panels, “We are both honored and delighted that Turner Studios has chosen DELEC intercom technology for their in-house communication. The new DELEC intercom panels will bring Dante interactivity and single cable connectivity convenience to Turner Studios’ production facility and, in the process, provide a new level of communication that, we’re confident, will enhance the ability of the staff to work more efficiently.”
Deployment of the new DELEC intercom system is expected to be completed by October 2015.
