In the early days of television production, intercommunication among the crew was accomplished using carbon microphone conference line intercom systems. These systems used telephone company equipment and telephone company technology. This technology was not intended to conference more than two stations, and television production needed as many as 30 stations to conference together. As the number of stations ranged from 10 upwards, the performance of the system was severely degraded. Some improvements were made over the years, but the system’s flaws were never fully addressed.
In 1975, the founders of RTS took a systems approach to solve the fundamental system design problem. After six months of intensive work, the problem was solved, and products were developed to utilize the solution. This first solution was called the “Two-Wire Intercom System”. The company formed then, to solve the problem and to market the solution, was—and still is RTS Systems.
In September 2006, RTS became a part of the Bosch Group. The acquisition brings the well-known Bosch quality standards to RTS through streamlined and modernized processes, as well as a renewed commitment to research and development.
