Based on the licence-free DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) standard, the RTS Roameo is a professional, easy-to-use and future-proof wireless intercom aimed at broadcast production studios, theatre and sport event productions, houses of worship, commercial buildings and OB use.
The system comprises the TR-1800 beltpack, the AP-1800 access point, along with accessories including a charger, holster and pole-mount kit. Operating like a wireless key panel, it can be fully integrated into all existing wired digital RTS matrices. The system allows users to address either individuals or specified groups. Connection to a digital matrix is via a single Ethernet cable. In addition, the system can use standard IT infrastructure, which ensures easy installation and low maintenance costs; the access points can be daisy-chained.
Roameo’s cellular structure can cover a wide area with seamless roaming between individual cells. The coverage area can be expanded by the addition of further access points, while additional wireless beltpacks can be directly addressed as part of a wired RTS matrix intercom system. Depending on the audio codec used, users can select between a higher emphasis on voice quality (G.722 full bandwidth) or a more efficient use of the radio spectrum with a higher number of beltpacks (G.726 narrow-band).
Roameo can be configured in a multi-language set-up via scroll lists on the beltpacks or using the control software, which allows the complete intercom system to be configured using a single screen. Through the large colour LED-display and intuitive icon-based menu structure, the beltpack is also simple to set up and operate. The four talk/listen buttons are shaped differently and provide users with a tactile feedback; the operation of the device is thus possible also in low light conditions and without the need to look at it. With its lightweight, durable housing, the beltpack features the smallest enclosure in its class and is protected against dust and light rain.
Roameo is an environmentally friendly system without any dangerous emissions at low radiation. It is compliant with the US environmental regulation N33.6, and will ship available worldwide in Q2 2017.
