Race Of Champions Gears Up With Riedel MediorNet, Artist And Bolero

Race Of Champions (ROC), a yearly international motorsport event featuring some of the world’s best racing and rally drivers, has now used Riedel’s solutions for over 12 years, beginning with radios and transitioning to intercom communications across departments.

This year, ROC used Riedel’s MediorNet, Artist, and Bolero systems to run communications for its second snow and ice track, located in northern Sweden just 100km from the Artic Circle. For yet another year, Riedel’s solutions have helped ROC reduce infrastructure costs, communicate clearly and quickly across teams, and provide on-site technical assistance.

With Riedel’s 10 MediorNet frames, ROC can transmit all radio comms, video, audio, and other data over one fiber-optic cable, making the workflow far more cost-effective and flexible throughout the whole venue. Additionally, ROC’s Riedel Artist ecosystem includes 36 intercom panels and an integrated Bolero system with 24 beltpacks and five antennas to cover its whole organization. With six full duplex channels per beltpack, multiple users can speak over the intercom at the same time, helping team members to quickly and clearly update each other.

ROC is the only competition in the world where stars from Formula One, World Rally Championship, IndyCar, NASCAR, Le Mans, Rally X, and more, compete against each other, going head-to-head in identical vehicles. It’s a knockout tournament where drivers must demonstrate their skills by competing in a diverse range of vehicles across a series of high-intensity elimination rounds. As a result, the live broadcast crew, track crew, drivers, and marshals all need to be prepared for quick changes and update the rest of the team.
