Riedel Communications has announced that Cinevideo SRL, a leading Italian provider of outside broadcast production services, has selected Riedel solutions to provide seamless and reliable crew communications onboard its new UHD-12G OB van. The Riedel installation includes an Artist-1024 digital matrix intercom node supporting a Bolero wireless intercom system.
Roberto Buonomo, technical manager at Cinevideo SRL, commented: “Riedel’s Artist and Bolero make a powerful team for advanced intercom capabilities that can stand up to the most rigorous IP-based OB environments, so they were the ideal choice for our new UHD van. The new Artist-1024 matrix gives us maximum flexibility and upgrading capabilities for the future, with a software-defined user interface that can be adapted very easily to different kinds of productions. And Bolero has become a household name in wireless intercom capabilities, with its outstanding flexibility, scalability, reliability and range.”
The Artist-1024 node is the top-of-the-line solution in Riedel’s Artist intercom ecosystem, offering higher port densities and full SMPTE 2110-30/31 (AES67) compliance. For its new vehicle, Cinevideo has paired Artist-1024 with four Bolero antennas and 10 intercom beltpacks onboard tfor global coverage of high-profile Series A Italian football events. Meanwhile, the system’s AES67 capabilities enable the Cinevideo crew to leverage the full power of IP-based operations.
“We’re happy that Artist and Bolero have exceeded Cinevideo’s expectations, and even though they’re a long-time customer it’s amazing to see them regularly surprised. The ease of integration and reliability of the system offer many rewards to those who take full advantage of all the features,” said Giuseppe Angilello, Riedel Sales Manager, Italy.
