AEQ CROSSNET Intercom on the official TV channel of the Parliament of Turkey.

The studios upgrade consisted of TP8000 user panels and a CrossNET matrix.

TBMM TV (from Turkish Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi Televizyon) is the official television channel of the Turkish national parliament, broadcasting all sessions and public commissions held there. TBMM TV began broadcasting in 1994 and can now be followed online at , on DTT with nationwide coverage, on cable (on channel 69) and via satellite on Eutelsat and Turksat where it can also be tuned in as Meclisi TV.

In the recent technical upgrade carried out by the network's technical management, IDEAPRO (AEQ's local partner in the country) installed one AEQ CROSSNET intercom system.

AEQ CROSSNET is a compact, 1RU intercom matrix with IP connectivity, based on Dante technology, compatible with the new AES 67 standard, carrying high quality audio suitable for broadcast. It also has high quality balanced analogue audio inputs and outputs and includes support for Kroma's legacy IP panels and interfaces with compressed audio, and for Kroma panels with digital audio link. Thanks to its scalability, from a 40 x 40 system to a 168 x168 system, AEQ CROSSNET offers a wide range of external connections: analogue, digital, AoIP Dante and low bit rate IP ports. The integration of this variety of connections within the same equipment allows the user to reduce the external equipment required.

The TBMM TV Intercom system is completed with the TP8000 Series user panels, which have been designed to achieve the high level of broadcast compatible audio quality that CrossNET digital matrix technology allows. Audio is digitalised and processed at 24-bit 48 kHz, giving a bandwidth of 20 Hz to 20 kHz and minimal distortion and noise levels. Ease of installation has also been taken into consideration, so they incorporate a redundant IP port that handles high quality audio in DANTE format, compatible with the AES-67 standard. The audio is digitally processed to cancel acoustic echo and automatically level the voice power and speech habits of each operator. The acoustics have been carefully studied to achieve the best intelligibility and natural sound.

The whole project has been coordinated and implemented by AEQ’s local partner in Turkey, IDEAPRO.
