Riedel ex-Olympic kit on offer At Mi

Riedel Communications, known for pioneering advanced intercom technology in the broadcast industry, supplied a dozen organisations and equipped 40 locations with 50 tons of communications equipment during the Summer Games 2004 in Athens, Greece.
Topping the list of Riedel customers was the Olympic Committee of Greece (ATHOC), and the host broadcaster of the Games, Athens Olympics Broadcast (AOB).
Thomas Riedel, the company’s founder, and his team of more than 100 engineers equipped locations in Athens, Thessaloniki, Patras, Olympia and Kreta with intercom systems that served all events.
In all, the Riedel teams used 80 matrix systems, more than 2,000 digital intercom control panels, 3,000 digital and 1,000 analogue radio transmitters, 200 RiFace radio interfaces, 5,500 headsets and more than 125 miles of cables and fibre.
The ATHOC charged Riedel with the responsibility for all sports-related communications. At the events Riedel Artist S Matrix-systems enabled up to 1,200 participants to connect with each other simultaneously. Referees, timekeepers and venue assistants communicated via approximately 1,000 digital beltpack C2s - introduced officially at the IBC in Amsterdam but successfully tested under real conditions in Greece. The robust and ergonomically shaped beltpack is completely noise-free, has broadcast quality audio and is unique in its ability to provide a fully integrated solution for combined matrix and party-line style intercom set-ups.
A limited quantity of Ex Olympic intercom equipment is currently on offer via Mi Broadcast Ltd, Riedel UK and Ireland distributor.
