Producing a seamless news broadcast is both difficult and stressful as performance drives ratings and therefore dollars. Staff is coordinated by the News Producer who has a direct connection to all staff.
How it Works
While having an extensive number of endpoints, the analog partyline system is simple and straight forward. The Producers and Directors stay in touch with all staff via a main station and a series of remote stations. Staff on one or two-channel beltpacks take respective direction based on position. Talent is cued and directed via wireless IFB.
The two-channel Encore main station allows up to 40 RS-701 beltpacks and 10 speaker stations. Beltpack loop-thrus allow simple runs of communication to KB-701 speaker stations. MA-704 and AX-704 allow multiple IFB connections to the main and remote stations.
