To optimize communication with units out and about at the Games, RTR has also invested in an RTS Cronus matrix. The system the broadcaster opted for in this case boasts two frames and 64 ports.
Nineteen inches wide and seven rack units in height, the Advanced Digital Audio Matrix (or 'ADAM') is an experienced Olympian. Since the Atlanta Olympics in 1996, the intelligent, easy to operate and stable intercom system, which has all the relevant technical demands covered, has participated in every Olympic Games. At the upcoming Summer Olympics in China, ADAM technology will again be playing a key role in communications. One of the most powerful arguments influencing its selection by RTR Sport, however, was its scalability. The ADAM covers a comprehensive range of broadcasting options from a single studio installation to a user network with worldwide connectivity. The new ADAM will serve as the interface between RTR's studios and OB trucks. RVON technology, in the shape of RTS's Voice-Over-IP network, will also play a key role here. In addition to the ADAM, the RTR team also invested in a large number of RTS keypanels and accessories.
RTR Sport was founded in 1991. It is owned by the Russian state television and radio broadcasting corporation VGTRK – one of the world's largest media enterprises. Both the studios and the control rooms of RTR Sport were recently renovated and fitted out with state-of-the-art equipment. The headquarters of the sports division is located in the new Moscow media park Shablovka.
