NAGOYA BROADCASTING NETWORK ENHANCES IP CAPABILITIES WITH CLEAR-COM INTERCOM SOLUTIONS

- Comprehensive upgrade encompasses studios and location teams -

The Nagoya Broadcasting Network, a broadcasting organization based in the Chukyo area of Japan, has upgraded its in-house intercom to a system based around Clear-Com Eclipse® HX digital matrix frames, taking full advantage of Clear-Com’s IP capabilities. The installation was completed by Clear-Com’s local Partner, MTC Japan.

The first part of the system offers a comprehensive room-to-room intercom system that features an Eclipse HX-Median at its heart, with Clear-Com’s new E-IPA interface cards that enable high density audio-and-intercom-over-IP connections. The system also includes over 30 V-Series Panels that can monitor and send communications over AES67 uncompressed audio IP streams, enabling the system to deliver high quality audio from user to user with significantly reduced latency. VHF/UHF radios have also been integrated into the matrix frame to allow for a complete communications solution.

The second part of the broadcaster’s installation spans across three studios (A, B, and C), which all connect to an Eclipse HX-Omega intercom matrix frame that has both E-IPA cards and E-FIB cards enabled as well as V-Series Panels. An IP switch is installed on each floor of the broadcast studio, with media converters for long distance cabling. This is useful when broadcasting large special events, enabling all the production team’s V-Series IP panels to easily connect to each floor’s IP switches, allowing for fast, simple connections. The installation also includes E-FIB link cards for seamless fiber connections to the studio intercom frame, offering increased versatility. The entire system connects over 90 4-wire lines.

Beyond the wired comms, Nagoya Broadcasting Network also uses Clear-Com’s Agent-IC application on mobile devices, connecting field reporters to the Eclipse HX system while they are on location. In addition the broadcaster has a mix-minus system for reporters, and uses IFBs for mobile camera systems.

Kazuki Hayashi, Chief Audio Engineer of the Nagoya Broadcast Network commented, “We need a communication system that can expand to meet our needs while still staying within our budget. Clear-Com IP connections are scalable and ideal for everything we do. The staff has perfect communication using Clear-Com, and our local Partner, MTC Japan, provided us the right proposal to fit our needs. In the end it was a perfect installation.”
