Riedel Systems Heighten Quality Of Events At The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center

View Master Events, a premier production company based in Athens, Greece, has used Riedel’s state-of-the-art technology solutions to heighten the quality of cultural, educational, and sports events at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC).

Leveraging its extensive experience in film and event production, View Master Events has entered a joint venture with Live Productions to create the state-of-the-art UHD5 OB van. In collaboration with Telmaco, a leading European systems integrator located in Athens, the UHD5 was equipped with cutting-edge technologies, including Riedel’s MicroN UHD, Artist-1024, SmartPanel, and Bolero solutions. Offering easy integration into SNFCC’s technical infrastructure through its MediorNet Compact stage boxes, these solutions enable seamless connectivity for a variety of productions at one of Athens' most iconic venues.

Since its opening in 2016, the multifunctional SNFCC complex — which houses the Greek National Opera; the National Library of Greece; the expansive Stavros Niarchos Park; and an opera hall with an alternative stage, outdoor stages, and conference rooms — has been using Riedel's MediorNet Compact stage boxes. The distributed MediorNet system serves as a distributed AV signal-routing backbone for seamless distribution of video, audio, data, and communications signals throughout the venue's diverse spaces. Through these stage boxes spread across the premises, View Master Events can easily integrate their UHD5 mobile production infrastructure, ensuring top-notch production quality for every one of SNFCC’s events. Besides reducing cabling, enhancing system stability, and providing extensive versatility in signal routing, MediorNet’s modular structure allows easy scaling as SNFCC’s production needs evolve.

During its tours primarily around Greece, the rest of Europe, and Turkey, the OB van’s MicroN UHD devices allow View Master Events to handle a wide range of video formats, including 4K/UHD signals. This ability to handle different signal types and formats seamlessly streamlines workflows and reduces the need for additional peripheral devices. Moreover, Riedel's SmartPanels offer an intuitive user interface for controlling various aspects of the production. Overall, this tight integration of Riedel’s solutions enables efficient signal routing, processing, and monitoring for live events spanning the opera house, outdoor stages, conference halls, and park areas.
