The Department of Pediatric Oncology at Amsterdam’s Emma Children’s Hospital, which is attached to the University of Amsterdam’s Academic Medical Centre, boasts an unusual facility: a TV studio in the basement from which programs are produced by and for children suffering from cancer. RTS and Axon, the company’s distribution partner in the Netherlands, are supporting this humanitarian project by providing the children’s hospital with equipment and know-how.

Axon, RTS’s distributor in the Netherlands, has made available equipment from RTS, including a digital Cronus DSP intercom matrix and two keypanels (KP12 and KP32), to ensure the smooth running of the local productions. The modular structure, easy handling and numerous DSP-controlled functions offered by RTS systems contribute significantly to the quality of the programs produced by Emma TV. “Emma TV is a really wonderful project,” says Johan Lieffers of Axon. “It does something to ease the suffering of these brave children. We’re proud to be able to make a contribution.”

About Emma TV

Three times a week in the basement of the Emma Children’s Hospital in Amsterdam, a one-hour program is produced by patients at the Department of Pediatric Oncology for broadcast throughout the hospital: “Confetti”, which screens at 3 p.m. on Mondays, is for the very youngest patients; “Babbels”, which airs on Wednesdays at the same time, is for patients ages six to 12; and “Strak” on Friday evenings at 8 p.m. for teenagers. The children have the choice of following the programs live on bedside televisions or attending the broadcasts as studio guests. Each program is retransmitted several times later in the week for children who may have missed the live transmission. For more information on Emma Children’s Hospital and its TV station, visit
