nobeo Installs Riedel Artist In Latest HD Truck

nobeo, a
German broadcast service provider, has equipped its new 16-camera HD truck with
a digital intercom matrix from Riedel Communications. The truck maintains the high
standards of nobeo’s studio facilities and can be used for applications ranging
from live shows and music to sporting events.

To manage
the high demands of the communication infrastructure, nobeo 1 is equipped with
a 176 x 176 Riedel Artist intercom matrix. The system consists of Artist 128
and Artist 64 mainframes connected via fiber, both equipped with redundant CPUs
and power supplies. The system offers maximum reliability: PSUs and the CPUs
are all hot-swappable.

Six
MADI-108 G2 client cards connect the Lawo mixing console to the Artist
intercom. The console works in conjunction with a redundant Nova73HD routing
system, enabling intercom panels to be patched through the router. This setup
ensures that even complex live productions and music recordings are possible. A
Sequoia HD system with 64 tracks serves as an audio-recording system. An ITU-certified 5.1 system is used in the production room and the audio-editing
suite.

“With nobeo
1, we now have a HD truck that is as technically advanced as possible,” says
Guido Amann, chief technician at nobeo GmbH. “The
Artist intercom matrix from Riedel facilitates the perfect integration of the
whole setup. It delivers the quality and reliability we need for highly
demanding productions.”

A total of
45 Riedel Artist 1000 series control panels were used in the truck. The panels
offer a second, independent audio channel on the single cable to the matrix,
which is accessible via an auxiliary line-in/out. The second channel can be
used for monitor speakers or to transmit the audio of the commentator.

The nobeo 1
truck is equipped to connect to other OB
trucks. The fiber ring at the rear of nobeo 1 can be opened to provide
additional connectivity to any other Artist intercom systems the truck may
encounter in the field. Two Connect IP interfaces allow connections to remote
panels through IP networks.

nobeo, a
service provider for TV productions, specializes in recording concerts,
shows, and sporting events. Recent projects from
nobeo include the casting events for Deutschland sucht den Superstar, the German version of American Idol.
