To ensure that its communications solutions are at the forefront of current technology, Creative Technology Asia Pacific (CT APAC) has added Riedel Communications’ Bolero wireless intercom system to its rental stock. Known for its innovative application of the latest technology alongside technical and operational personnel, CT APAC tested and identified the Bolero system as a critical addition to its comms solution offering.
“We worked with Bolero on a large-scale arena event just a couple of months back, so the system’s flexibility and clarity are still very fresh in our minds — and they’re great reasons to make Bolero part of our rental stock,” says Marcus Lim, general manager, CT Singapore. “Bolero delivered an incredible user experience, and everyone was deeply impressed by the quality of the system. Communications is the backbone on which all other disciplines rely. It should be the least of our worries at event venues, and Bolero gives us valuable peace of mind and assurance in that challenging environment.”
Bolero is an expandable, full-roaming, DECT-based intercom system in the license-free 1.9 gigahertz frequency range. Fully integrated into Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom platform, Bolero offers a rich set of features and connectivity that can be applied three ways: as a wireless beltpack, wireless keypanel, and as a walkie-talkie radio. Running over a standards-based AES67 IP network along with Artist frames, Bolero provides a fully integrated point-to-point intercom ecosystem with seamless roaming capabilities.
Equipped with a high-clarity voice codec, Bolero facilitates high speech intelligibility and efficient use of RF spectrum, thereby supporting twice the number of beltpacks per antenna for the same audio bandwidth as other DECT-based systems. The codec has low latency characteristics while being efficient with processing power, providing extended beltpack battery life and saving processing power for other functions.
“Creative Technology is a premier supplier of audiovisual gear to the entertainment, sports, and corporate sectors,” says Rajveer Singh, Riedel Communications general manager, Southeast Asia. “That the company has selected our Bolero wireless intercom is a matter of great pride for us — and yet another indicator that Bolero is becoming the first choice for customers in several parts of Asia.”
