RTV Montenegro debuted its new Calrec-equipped HD OB 6 with a broadcast of Show Montevizija, a national singing competition to select its entrant to the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.

HD OB 6RTV Montenegro is a national public broadcaster that consists of three TV channels and two radio channels. Its content reaches 99 per cent of Montenegro’s population. The Artemis installation was handled by systems integrator BFE with the sale concluded by Calrec partner Kompani DigiTV.

‘This was a particularly important production for us because it was RTV’s first stereo television transmission, and it was distributed in HD,’ says Chief Technology Officer, Dejan Vujović. ‘The sound quality was superb, and that’s due in large part to the new Artemis Light console we have installed. The Artemis is incredibly easy to learn and operate.’

The OB is expandable on both sides, and is equipped with 13 Sony cameras, though it’s cabled for up to 17. It also benefits from EVS Max servers, a Sony vision mixer, Avid graphics, a KSC control system as well as Calrec’s Hydra 2 audio networking capabilities. It is designed to meet major sports rights holders’ production standards.

‘Hydra 2 was one of the key advantages that we saw with Calrec,’ adds Vujović . ‘We have a stagebox in HD OB 6, with internal audio sources plugged into that. Hydra 2 is used for all routing, including the audio that passes through two additional external stageboxes. They are connected via fibre and instantly appear on the network, completely transparently, making life for our audio engineers much easier. We will be installing further Calrec equipment this year as we continue the upgrade of both our television and radio studios.’

‘It’s no accident that our consoles, including Artemis, are used widely in outside broadcasting,’ says Calrec International Sales Manager, Mike Reddick. ‘The Artemis, in particular, was the perfect fit for RTV Montenegro because of its superior sound quality, ease of use and flexibility. It’s already been used on a major production and is ready for more high-profile work. We look forward to continuing to build upon this great partnership.’
