Finnish broadcaster Yleisradio Oy (YLE), which has served as a broadcast partner in Finland for the International Olympic Committee (IOC), will provide more than 300 hours of coverage of the 2016 Summer Games in Rio, with Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless technology being central to the effort.

The Lectrosonics equipment contingent includes SRC dual-channel slot-mount receivers, SSM micro belt pack transmitters and HHa handheld transmitters for this year’s events in Brazil.

“The Summer Games are a huge event with thousands of wireless systems in use,” states Timo Vilmi, owner of Noretron Broadcast, supplier of the Lectrosonics equipment to YLE. “So it is important to select the best possible tools to perform in such a rugged environment – with the high heat and humidity in Rio and long distances that gear has to perform – conditions which are very tough on any piece of equipment. Lectrosonics’ products are always up to the challenge and the sound quality is superb.”

The Rio Games wireless system includes 12 Lectrosonics SRC double-channel receivers with SSM and HHA transmitters. There, YLE has 24 channels in use for daily reports.

“At Noretron, we have been Lectrosonics Fanatics for years –they just do it right,” Vilmi adds. “And we have supplied Lectrosonics wireless systems to YLE for the Summer and Winter games several times over the years, for games in Vancouver, London and Sochi. YLE have always been very pleased with Lectrosonics performance and reliability, and that’s why they decided to take Lectrosonics to Brazil as well.”
