Riedel Solution Selected For Zurich Street Parade

News Image
An Artist digital matrix intercom system from Riedel Communications delivered the radio communications infrastructure for the 26th annual Zurich Street Parade earlier this year. For the project, Riedel worked alongside Security & Safety AG Zurich to deploy the communications network and CCTV system.

Riedel Communications Switzerland AG deployed the "event cockpit" in the Street Parade command centre to allow event monitoring and facilitated communications between first responders and other groups. To further strengthen safety and security, the event cockpit gave the Street Parade team access to situation and evacuation plans and also provided images from CCTV cameras placed throughout the parade route. The comms team was also able to access real-time weather information supplied by a Riedel weather station, and could view a dashboard for social media tweets and posts. Riedel and Security & Safety AG worked closely with the Zurich City Police, providing them access to both live and recorded CCTV feeds.

Using Riedel's RiFace radio interface, the team interfaced the Artist matrix intercom with 350 Motorola mobile radios located throughout the Street Parade course, providing 11 digital DMR channels and five analog channels.

"Riedel has an impressive track record of providing fail-safe communications for some of the world's biggest and most high-profile events, with complex logistics spanning broad geographical areas. We faced exactly those kinds of logistical challenges with the Street Parade," said Marcel Hirschi, Security Engineer, Security & Safety AG Zurich. "We knew we could trust Riedel to help us execute a comprehensive communications strategy that would guarantee an outstanding and safe experience for close to a million people."

"For 26 years, the Zurich Street Parade has been a fun and exciting fixture in Europe's electronic music scene," added Roger Hess, General Manager, Riedel Communications Switzerland AG. "The Street Parade has communications requirements on a huge scale, but it's just the type of challenge we relish at Riedel. Once again, we were able to show how our integrated communications technologies and expertise can help any event, even one of this magnitude, run smoothly and safely."
