The New inventory of Bolero Wireless Intercom and Artist Matrix Intercom systems will enable flexible and expandable communications for productions of any size
Burbank, CA – November 27, 2018 – Bexel, an NEP Broadcast Services Company, has made a major commitment to their intercom solutions with Riedel’s Bolero Wireless Intercom and Artist Matrix mainframes to significantly expand its rental inventory of communication solutions for broadcast productions.
The investment includes an Artist Matrix intercom system and a fleet of Bolero wireless beltpacks and antennas. This investment plan includes a commitment to expand its inventory of Artist frames and panels, as well as additional Bolero wireless beltpacks and antennas, in early 2019.
Riedel’s Bolero system operates in the 1.9GHz (DECT) band, and seamlessly integrates with their popular Artist Matrix intercom system. Bolero enables up to 100 antennas to be connected to the system via a standards-based AES67 IP network, and when linked, the 6-button beltpack essentially becomes a wireless keypanel. In addition to having access to all the resources of the Artist Matrix, the Bolero beltpacks have unique features including Bluetooth headset compatibility, a built-in speaker and mic, and 18-hour battery life with smart battery charging indications.
Bexel has recently deployed Riedel’s intercom system on the production of an upcoming competition series that requires an expansive RF system with multiple antennas leveraging a fiber optic infrastructure, making Riedel the perfect intercom solution for the job.
“We are seeing an increase in large-scale productions that need to connect more users over multiple areas with reliably and efficiency,” said Tom Dickinson, Vice President, Technology, Bexel. “Choosing the right wireless intercom system is not a “one-size-fits-all” scenario. A key benefit of the Riedel intercom solutions is the ability to expand up to 100 antennas and 100 beltpacks to satisfy unique and demanding production requirements.”
