Riedel's Bolero Selected By Hong Kong Jockey Club

Riedel Communications has announced that its Bolero wireless intercom system has been selected by the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), Hong Kong's premier horse racing operator, to streamline communications for its video productions.

Bolero is integrated with Riedel's Artist digital matrix intercom system to provide communications across two separate HKJC race courses and in the HKJC studio located in Sha Tin.

Introduced in 2017, Bolero is an expandable, DECT-based wireless intercom system in the license-free 1.9GHz frequency range. Riedel's Advanced DECT Receiver (ADR) technology improves RF robustness by reducing sensitivity to multipath RF reflections, enabling HKJC crew members to roam at either race course without losing audio quality.

"Reliable wireless communications are essential for our live TV productions of horse races. Our production crews located all around the race courses have to be able to count on clear, stable, and uninterrupted comms from the TV studio," explained Yeung Shui Kin, Senior Broadcasting Services Manager at the Hong Kong Jockey Club. "After just two weeks of operation, the performance of Bolero has more than met our expectations by delivering outstanding sound quality from any point on our race courses. Also, Bolero's integration with our Artist frame is a huge plus."

"HKJC is not only an outstanding provider of global entertainment for horse racing enthusiasts, but also the largest community benefactor in Hong Kong – making significant donations every year to support the community and contribute to the betterment of local people," added Cameron O'Neil, Director, APAC, Riedel Communications. "It gives us great pleasure to provide Bolero, our groundbreaking wireless intercom, for HKJC's race tracks at Sha Tin and Happy Valley in addition to their TV studio. We are confident that Bolero will provide not just the best-possible coverage, but also a great benefit to users through its intuitive and advanced features."

Founded in 1884, HKJC provides horse racing, sporting, and betting on horse racing and overseas football events. HKJC has initially purchased 12 Bolero backpacks, with plans to add more later this year, for communications links between its TV studio in the Sha Tin district and its Happy Valley and Sha Tin race courses. The Bolero systems first went into service for international races in early December 2017.
