The addition of Riedel Communications’ solutions will empower Bexel with flexibility and expandable communications for productions of all sizes
Bexel, an NEP Broadcast Services Company, has affirmed its commitment to its intercom solutions with Riedel Communications to expand its rental inventory of communication solutions for broadcast productions. This investment plan includes the purchase of Riedel’s Artist frames and panels, as well as additional Bolero wireless beltpacks and antennas, in early 2019.
Bexel has recently deployed Riedel’s intercom system on the production of an upcoming competition series that requires expansive RF system with multiple antennas leveraging a fibre-optic infrastructure, making Riedel the “ideal” solution for the job.
Tom Dickinson, vice-president, technology, Bexel, added: “We are seeing an increase in large-scale productions that need to connect more users over multiple areas with reliably and efficiency. 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 demanding production requirements.”
Riedel’s Bolero is a six-channel DECT-based intercom system operating in the 1.9GHz frequency range, and can be integrated into the Artist digital matrix intercom platform via an AES67 IP network. In addition to having access to the resources of Artist, the Bolero beltpacks are packed with features including Bluetooth headset compatibility, a built-in speaker and mic, and 18-hour battery life with battery charging indications.
