Riedel Communications' Artist Was The Most Used Intercom System In Beijing

Publish date:

BEIJING, CINA--The Artist digital matrix intercom system, manufactured by Riedel Communications, was the most popular intercom at the Beijing Games. Half of the mobile production units providing international coverage of the Olympics were equipped with an intercom system from this German communications specialist. In all, 27 of the 55 official OB trucks covering the Games utilized a Riedel Artist system, making Riedel the most used intercom provider at these Games.

In addition, many international broadcasters, including ARD/ZDF (Germany), BBC (UK), CHT (Taiwan), ERR (Estonia), ERT (Greece), KBS (Korea), ORF (Austria) and TVE (Spain) used Riedel Artist systems for their own coverage of the Games.

On top of the broadcast portion of the Games, all venue communications were carried out with Riedel intercoms. More than 50 Riedel Artist systems were installed in all Olympic venues to meet the communication needs for organisational requirements such as time-keeping, presentations and scoring. These installations also included 1,370 Riedel Performer Digital Partyline beltpacks.

Last but not least the opening and closing ceremonies relied on what was likely the largest and most complex temporary intercom installation ever built. It featured 8 Artist digital matrix intercom systems linked via fibre, 80 control panels, 24 C44 system interfaces for the integration of digital partylines, 210 Performer C3 digital partyline beltpacks, 44 RiFace radio interfaces, 650 professional mobile radios, 6 FM transmitters and 12,000 Riedel FMR-1000 mass-monitoring radio receivers for the on-field actors.
All in all, more than 100 of Riedel's Artist intercom systems were utilised in Beijing, making Riedel the largest supplier of intercom systems at the Beijing Games.
