NBA Team Deploys Riedel's Bolero System

News Image
NBA team Memphis Grizzles have adopted Riedel Communication's wireless intercom system, Bolero, for AES67-based communications

Bolero is also enabling bulletproof AES67-based communications in-venue productions at the FedExForum. It works in concert with Riedel's Artist digital matrix intercom solution and SmartPanel multifunctional user interfaces.

Comprehensive Technical Group (CTG) sourced and integrated the Riedel products as part of a large-scale upgrade and modernisation of the FedExForum video control room.

"During the initial planning stages, it was decided that a standards-based AES67 IP network would be the best solution for distributing antennas throughout the facility," said Josh Shibler, Vice President, CTG. "The result is an elegant and scalable IP infrastructure that allows Bolero to deliver outstanding sound quality from almost any location in the FedExForum."

The Riedel solutions form the communications hub for a new converged platform in the FedExForum that drives live video and audio for broadcast, LED presentations, and AV-based marketing programs. Three decentralised Bolero antennas located at strategic points in the building connect to AES67-compliant IP switches and then to an Artist matrix intercom frame equipped with AES67 client cards. This enables wireless roaming across the entire arena and the control room for six Bolero beltpacks. With this antenna configuration, up to 24 additional beltpacks can be supported without further investments in antennas. Also benefitting from AES67 connectivity, 13 wired rack-mount SmartPanels and five desktop Smartpanels are used as intercom keypanels.

"Bolero and Artist have proved once again that they're an unbeatable combination for large and complex intercom installations like that at the FedExForum," said Rhett Frazier, Business Development Manager, Southern US, Riedel Communications. "With Bolero's proprietary Advanced DECT Receiver, communications for the entire arena are easily handled from only three antenna locations — a feat that's simply not possible with any other wireless intercom system on the market."
