Broadcast Production Intercom Console Provides Better Production & Talent Management
Coordinating production staff and other talent at film shoots can be difficult. Gordon Kapes, president of Studio Technologies explained to me at the NAB trade show that producers and directors need to give direction to specific people on the set. Without good talent communication, delays in production can occur increasing costs. Worst case scenarios can be inability to complete the shoot do to time delays or the inability of staff to coordinate the shoot. The communication process needs to be an interactive with multiple people requesting and responding to instructions. To solve this challenge, Studio Technologies created the m240 intercom, a 4 channel talent cueing intercom system. It is a simple to use audio communication system that combines a shared audio system (party line) with an audio connection priority assignment system (cueing).
