Glensound Debuts New
Product Line At IBC 2015
A

s broadcast industry stalwart
Glensound heads towards its 50th
year of design and manufacture, the
company will celebrate by launching
their largest number of products at
a single event than ever before. The
following Glensound products will
debut at IBC 2015:

The Expedition: 4G HD Voice
Broadcasters' Production Phone
Glensound's established HD Voice
range of broadcasters' phones
extends with the introduction
of a new model, with the
addition of 4G LTE network
compatibility.
HD Voice is the commercial
name for the upgrade of the mobile
telephone networks around the
world. Mobile operators have been
introducing HD Voice compatibility for
a few years and it is available from
about 70% of the world's operators,
and nearly all of them in Europe. If

you make HD Voice to HD Voice calls
using Glensound broadcast phones,
the audio bandwidth is 7kHz - more
than double the quality of narrowband
GSM calls.
The new Expedition adds some
important new features to the current
Glensound HD Voice phones. The
Expedition can make 3.4kHz narrow
band calls on 2G GSM, 3G UMTS, and
4G LTE, or 7kHz wideband HD Voice

The Expedition: 4G HD
Voice Broadcasters' Production Phone

calls on 3G UMTS and 4G LTE.
The Expedition is a two user
unit. There are 2 x mic/line/48v inputs
and 2 x headphone outputs. This
means it is a complete portable sports
OB unit for two commentators, or a
monitoring/talkback interface for a
small ENG team.
A screen is the final major change,
facilitating setups, caller ID, and
phone book usage.
The Expedition is available to order
at IBC.
The Paradiso: Three Commentator
Dante Commentary Box
Glensound entered the Dante
audio networking world this year
with the Dark 88 breakout box, and
the Inferno single commentary box.
The products proved a success and
demand for further units has been
great. The most requested has been
a larger commentary unit, which is
called Paradiso.

The Paradiso is a three commentator
mixer, with three independent
monitoring positions. The single user
Inferno is Dante only, with no local
connections. With the Paradiso it can
be used as a self-contained, standalone commentators' unit without
connecting to a Dante network, as the
audio is available on rear panel XLR
connections.
It has four talkback outputs and
eight headphone monitoring inputs
on each commentary position,
accompanied by large e-paper displays
for custom labelling for the user and
input sources. The Dante interface
has optical and RJ45, primary and
redundant connections, with primary
AC internal power and secondary DC
external power.
The Paradiso will be available to
order at IBC 2015.
The Signature Series
In celebration of 50 years in
broadcast design, Glensound are
launching a complete range of
products representing the best of
Glensound. Details of the range will not
be fully announced until the opening
day of IBC, but this looks likely to be a
significant line up.

NRK Upgrades With Multi-Site
Remote Camera Solution

S

hotoku Broadcast Systems has
announced the sale and installation
of a multi-faceted, multi-site camera
control configuration to NRK, Norway's
national public broadcaster and the
largest media organisation in the
country.
The installation was a key component
of NRK's upgrade to its news studios in
Oslo that included a large SmartTrack
rail system to achieve the desired
visual impact. The broadcaster also
installed a nationwide remote camera
system for 11 regional studios capable
of being controlled locally or remotely
from the Oslo HQ.
The SmartTrack system combines
strength and finesse to support the
rapid camera moves demanded, as
well as ultra-slow, smooth on-air
crawls. The range of on-air tracking
shots provide unique camera motion
adding interest and variation, without
distracting from the serious nature
of the news content and the overall

production values.
"The NRK installation is a perfect
illustration
of
SmartTrack's
capabilities," said James Eddershaw,
Shotoku Sales Director. "It addresses
all the demanding requirements
for dolly speed, elevation range,
motion control and heavy camera /
prompter / talent monitor payload.
In addition, the MAT LIZARD-DOLLY
and TOWERCAM technology at the
core of the SmartTrack system has
proven so reliable it is trusted in
the live production of Dagsrevyen,
Norway's flagship national daily news
programme."
In Studio 5, Shotoku installed four
SmartTrack dolly systems, TG-18 PT
heads and height elevation running
on three separate tracks. One track
carries the two main cameras in a tight
arc around the main set. A second
track follows a slightly larger arc,
and also straightens out to enable
the camera to be used in an adjoining

area.
Finally a third, straight
track provides the
director with a wider
angle tracking move
across the lengthy back
wall of the studio.
The smaller Studio
7 was equipped with
