Riedel’s Artist And Bolero Form Intercom Core Of Cinevideo’s New UHD-12G OB Van

Italian OB provider Cinevideo, has chosen Riedel solutions to provide seamless and reliable crew communications on board its brand-new UHD-12G OB van. The installation includes a top-of-the-line Artist-1024 digital matrix intercom node supporting a Bolero wireless intercom system.

Riedel’s Artist and Bolero make a powerful team for advanced intercom capabilities that can stand up to the most rigorous IP-based OB environments, so they were the ideal choice for our new UHD van,” said Roberto Buonomo, Technical Manager, Cinevideo SRL. “The new Artist-1024 matrix gives us maximum flexibility and upgrading capabilities for the future, with a software-defined user interface that can be adapted very easily to different kinds of productions. And Bolero has become a household name in wireless intercom capabilities, with its outstanding flexibility, scalability, reliability, and range.”

The Artist-1024 node, the top-of-the-line solution in Riedel’s Artist intercom ecosystem, offers higher port densities and full SMPTE 2110-30/31 (AES67) compliance. Cinevideo has paired Artist-1024 with four Bolero antennas and 10 intercom beltpacks on board the new UHD van for global coverage of high-profile Series A Italian football events. The system’s AES67 capabilities enable the Cinevideo crew to leverage the full power of IP-based operations.

“We’re happy that Artist and Bolero have exceeded Cinevideo’s expectations, and even though they’re a longtime customer it's amazing to see them regularly surprised. The ease of integration and reliability of the system offer many rewards to those who take full advantage of all the features,” said Giuseppe Angilello, Riedel Sales Manager, Italy.
