Riedel helps Australian venue prepare for spectrum changes
His Majesty’s Theatre in Perth has installed a Riedel digital intercom system. The Riedel solution prepares the facility for Australia’s ‘digital dividend’, which mandates the release and eventual auction of 126 MHz of contiguous RF spectrum and will affect wireless microphones, in-ear monitors, and RF communications systems.
The new all-digital intercom system at ‘The Maj’ is centrally controlled by a Riedel Artist 32 digital intercom matrix. The theater has replaced its traditional analogue partylines with the flexible Riedel Performer digital partylines and exchanged its existing wireless system with Riedel’s Acrobat digital wireless system.
“The implementation of the Riedel system at His Majesty’s Theatre has made vast improvements in the venue’s back-of-house operations as its high-level coverage greatly increases the scope of our flexibility and opportunities for communication in both performance and rehearsal modes. We are thrilled with the system,” says Rodney Phillips, general manager, His Majesty’s Theatre.
