Straubing / Munich

As a pioneer of private television in Africa, MNET (Electronic Media Network PTY Ltd) has written TV history. And today, the company based in Gauteng near Johannesburg continues to occupy a commanding position in the African media landscape, thanks to its diverse range of subscription channels. To underpin its market leadership, the company is once again investing in equipment from Telex and RTS. The entire intercom system covering the studios and broadcasting center in Johannesburg is made up of Telex and RTS equipment: three

ADAM matrices

connected by fiber optic cables and new

TBX-Tribus cards

and one hundred and fifty

KP-632 keypanels

. The bulk of the new acquisitions, however, relate to the reequipping with the latest technology of the company’s fleet of outside broadcast vehicles. MNET already had one large

OB

truck built by Sony UK, which has been equipped with an

ADAM matrix

from RTS (with 96 ports linked to

KP-32

and

KP-612

keypanels). Now MNET is arming itself with a new high-definition

OB

truck. The aim is to construct a mobile “fly-away� system that can be used for all outside-house events. For this, all the requisite systems are integrated into racks, these being three

Cronus frames

, more than a hundred

KP-632 keypanels

, and an integrated

RVON-C card

. For more information, visit the RTS Intercom website:
