Riedel Receives An Emmy Award For Its Bolero Wireless Intercom System

Riedel Communications honored with Television Academy’s 75th Engineering, Science, and Technology Emmy Award for its Bolero Wireless Intercom.

Riedel’s innovative Bolero ADR (Advanced DECT Receiver) wireless intercom system has been recognized by the esteemed organization for its contributions to and impact on television production. Since its introduction in 2017, Bolero has been deployed in hundreds of productions, often enabling development of new workflows and use cases.

Riedel’s Bolero system supports up to 250 beltpacks and 100 antennas in a single deployment. A battery life of 17+ hours and optional stand-alone operation, which doesn’t require a base station, makes Bolero convenient to use. With features such as ADR with multidiversity and antireflection technology for greater RF robustness, “Touch&Go” beltpack registration, and versatile operation — as a wireless beltpack, wireless keypanel, and walkie-talkie — plus, Bluetooth support and a bottle opener, Bolero has redefined the wireless intercom category.

The Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards are awarded to a living individual, a company, or a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies that either represent so extensive an improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature, that they materially have affected television. A committee of highly qualified engineers working in television considers technical developments in the industry and determines which, if any, merit an award.

Riedel will receive the 2023 Technology and Engineering Emmy Award at an Oct. 18 ceremony in Los Angeles. This award represents the fourth Emmy Award received by Riedel over its 30+-year history. The company earlier earned Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards for its work with Red Bull Stratos and Red Bull Air Race. The Bolero system itself received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2019.
