German Theatres Install Riedel Intercom

Three large theatres in Germany installed intercom solutions from Riedel Communications.
While the State Theatres in Meiningen and Dresden chose Riedel's Performer 32 Intercom matrix/stage management system, a Riedel Artist 64 intercom matrix is used at the opera house in Halle.
Next to the Semper Opera, the Schauspielhaus is the biggest theatre in Dresden. Its program consists of classical plays and musical theatre productions. The backbone of the intercom system at the theatre in Dresden is a Riedel Performer 32+16 system.
This stage management system is designed for smaller applications and locations such as theatres. One GPI card and three CAT-5 cards offer GPI I/Os and connections for control panels. The relay signals of the GPI client card can, for example, be used to control light signals. Furthermore, an AIO-client card integrates analog line level audio into the intercom matrix.
A Performer C44 Partyline interface seamlessly integrates 12 x C3 Digital Partyline Beltpacks with the intercom matrix. 11 PRO and 6 ultralight AIR-headsets complete the setup.
Uwe Weissbach from the system integrator HFE Elektroakustik, which installed the Riedel intercom systems in Halle and Dresden, said: "With Riedel's intercom solutions we found the perfect system for the installations at the opera house in Halle and the Schauspielhaus in Dresden. The modular layout made it possible to tailor the intercom to the exact needs of each individual theatre. While we chose a Performer system for Dresden, a Riedel Artist 64 was an ideal solution for Halle because it offers the option to expand it later."
With a history that goes back to 1831, the State Theatre Meiningen is one of the oldest theatres in Germany. Its program ranges from opera and classical theatre to dance and stagings for kids.
The communications infrastructure seamlessly integrates radio communications into the intercom matrix. The heart of the intercom installation is a Performer 32+16 system.
A total of 15 Artist 2000 control panels are installed. A Performer C44 interface integrates four C3 Digital Partyline Beltpacks into the intercom matrix. The CS3 combine the flexibility of regular beltpacks with digital audio quality. Motorola GP344 radios complete the infrastructure.
A Riedel RiFace integrates the radios into the intercom matrix. The system integrator Sigma-TBL was responsible for the installation in Meiningen.
The heart of the installation at the opera house in Halle is Riedel Artist 64 matrix. The redundant CPUs and the redundant power supplies offer maximum reliability. A RIF1032 GPI-Interface provides distributed GPI contacts.
In addition, a GPI client card supplies additional GPI-ports directly at the Artist matrix mainframe.
A total of 19 Artist 2000 and Artist 3000 control panels were installed at the opera house in Halle.
