NVP Chooses Riedel’s Powerful Artist And Bolero Combo For Flagship 4K-HDR OB Van

NVP, an Italian provider of advanced production facilities and services, has selected Riedel’s top-of-the-line Artist-1024 digital matrix intercom node and Bolero wireless intercom to provide seamless crew communications on board the company’s all-new, 4K- and HDR-capable outside broadcasting (OB) van, OB 7.

Riedel’s Artist and Bolero were the obvious choices for OB 7, the flagship of our fleet. Highly requested by our broadcast clients, these solutions represent the state of the art in IP-based, high-performance wireless communications networks,” said Ivan Pintabona, Chief Technical Officer, NVP. “With 1024 non-blocking ports in only two RUs, Artist-1024 is ideal for the space limitations of an OB van. And Bolero is a truly groundbreaking wireless intercom system offering standard-setting flexibility, scalability, reliability, and range. Both of these outstanding products reflect Riedel’s industry-acclaimed excellence and innovation in signal transport and media networking technologies.”

With its higher port densities and full SMPTE 2110-30/31 (AES67) compliance, Riedel’s Artist-1024 node is the high-end solution in Riedel’s Artist intercom ecosystem. Together with the Artist-1024, OB 7 is equipped with five Bolero antennas and 20 intercom beltpacks. The new van has already provided 4K/HDR coverage of several high-profile sporting events in Europe, including Ferrari Challenge Europe and UCL football matches.

“As one of Europe’s most prestigious production companies, NVP is the latest in a range of prominent OB providers that have embraced the powerful combo of Artist-1024 and Bolero,” said Giuseppe Angilello, Riedel Sales Manager, Italy. “The system’s industry-leading flexibility and scalability to support production of events of all types and sizes, and its decentralized communications, are huge plusses for live broadcasting. And, because Artist and Bolero are so widely deployed among the European OB community, NVP has discovered that they can interconnect the intercom system easily with other infrastructures. That has been a crucial success factor.”
