Crealine’s Live Productions Taken To The Next Level With Riedel

Riedel’s intercom and audio distribution systems are a game-changer for Crealine’s live event productions.

Crealine Media Systems AG deploy Riedel Communications’ Artist digital matrix intercom system, Bolero wireless intercom system, and SmartPanel intelligent intercom and control panels for real-time video, audio, data, and communications. Ensuring flexible, reliable communications within the Crealine control room, as well as connections to off-site locations, studios, and mobile facilities, the Riedel gear supports Crealine’s remote and hybrid production workflows for esports and other live events across Switzerland.

“Riedel gear sets up quickly and integrates readily via different interfaces for audio, control, and monitoring, so it’s easy to equip the system as needed for any live production,” said Silas Füglistaler, project manager at Crealine. “We also benefit from Riedel’s expertise and the company’s robust rental offering, which help us scale to meet the requirements of any project. Because Riedel products are easy to use and already well known in the production environment, they require little to no training time.”

Along with Crealine’s existing store of Riedel equipment, the new Artist, Bolero, and SmartPanel systems played a central role in the company’s production of the Red Bull Flight Day in Lausanne on Sept. 19. The Riedel gear facilitated communications between a studio, located on a raft near the launch pad, with three commentators; the host motorboat; a reporter and the technical team working across the event; Crealine’s remote team directing the live show from its Ulster facility; and LTE mobile cameras with a comms connection to the remote team.

“Effective and reliable communications are fundamental to a great project, especially in hectic times,” added Füglistaler. “Thanks to the flexible configuration options and dependable performance of Riedel intercom systems, we have the freedom to concentrate fully on delivering the best possible content.”

Riedel’s Artist provides reliable communications and audio signal distribution for any audio or intercom application, while Bolero delivers unparalleled versatility for wireless communications. The company’s RSP-1216HL SmartPanel user interface packs multiple full-color, multitouch displays into 1 RU and boasts user-friendly controls that facilitate intuitive operation. Leveraging innovative hybrid lever keys and a growing array of apps — starting with Control Panel and Intercom apps — for multifunctionality, the interface makes it easy to adapt to changing workflows and production requirements.
