Clear-Com Is On Hand for ITV's Production of Long-Running Soap Opera, Emmerdale Eclipse Matrix with V-Series Panels Offer Reliable, Upgradeable Technology in Network's New HD Studios
DMN Newswire--2012-11-15--Clear-Com, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, is pleased to announce that its intercoms play a starring role on the long-running British soap opera Emmerdale. The show, which is filmed at ITV's new HD complex in Leeds and on location in Northern England's Yorkshire Dales, has been a longtime favorite in the country. Production team members for the soap, which airs six episodes a week to an audience of almost 10 million, employ the Clear-Com Eclipse-Median digital matrix intercom, V-Series panels and ICS-1016 digital intercom stations to ensure immediate access to fast, reliable communications across the ITV complex's various studios.

The size of the new Eclipse system, which is larger than ITV's previous Eclipse-PiCo system, allows the Emmerdale crew to communicate between the five studios and two production galleries at the ITV complex. The system, which has been in place since the first day in the new complex, is also expandable. This enables the team to incorporate functions to meet more communications needs as they arise in the future.

"With both a quick move and production schedule, we needed a talkback system that would be flexible enough to meet our needs as we grew into the new complex, while also being immediately recognizable to the crew," says Steve Ridley, a senior engineer at ITV.
