BVE 2018: First UK showing for Riedel Bolero wireless intercom system
At the BVE show in London ExCEL, Riedel will be in attendance with many of its products, including Bolero, a wireless intercom system in the license-free 1.9GHz frequency range. Bolero, which launched last year at Prolight & Sound 2017, offers a rich set of features and connectivity that can be applied three ways: as an exceptional wireless beltpack, as a wireless keypanel, and as a walkie-talkie radio.
Paul Rivens, general manager, UK, at Riedel Communications, said: “BVE is a very important event for the broadcast industry in the UK and a great platform to meet with our partners and customers. We will be showcasing the capabilities of Bolero, our wireless intercom system, and I am really excited to be showing the MultiViewer and MicroN IP Apps that are sure to get some attention. We’re looking forward to another great show.”
The system runs over a standards-based AES67 IP network, and its decentralided antennas connect to AES67 switches and then to Artist frames equipped with AES67 client cards to provide a fully integrated point-to-point intercom ecosystem with seamless handover capabilities.
Bolero uses a high-clarity 7KHz voice codec to provide higher speech intelligibility and more efficient use of the RF spectrum. The codec offers excellent processing efficiency, provides outstanding beltpack battery life, and saves processing power. Bolero operates at twice the spectrum efficiency of other DECT-based systems, equating to up to 10 beltpacks per antenna (fully roaming) and up to 100 antennas per system.
Other features include Riedel’s exclusive Advanced DECT Receiver (ADR) technology to improve RF robustness by reducing sensitivity to multipath reflections, Near-Field Communication technology to facilitate “Touch&Go” beltpack registration, Bluetooth 4.1, and an ergonomic beltpack wrapped in high-impact plastic and rubber overmolds.
Riedel’s will also present the MediorNet MultiViewer App, a virtual multiviewer app based on the MediorNet MicroN high-density media distribution hardware and designed to work within MediorNet networks.
Building on MediorNet MicroN’s ability to extend functionality through the use of apps, Riedel’s MediorNet MicroN IP App will be showcased as well.
