Teatro Diana, a 2,400-seat theater in Guadalajara, Mexico, chose the occasion of its 15th anniversary to upgrade its communications infrastructure to a Riedel Bolero stand-alone wireless intercom.
“Reliable intercom systems are critical for all of our live shows, including plays, concerts, conferences, and cinema screenings,” says Wolfgang Schmitz, production chief, Teatro Diana. “Bolero’s renowned audio quality, reliability, and flexibility attracted us from the beginning, and we could see Bolero would offer the easiest integration and most flexible programming capabilities. We know we can count on Bolero for events of all types and sizes.”
Working with local Riedel reseller Video Integra, Teatro Diana chose Bolero to replace a legacy wireless intercom that had been in place since the theater’s opening. Theater crews can use Bolero’s web-based configuration portal to program beltpacks, while up to 10 beltpacks per AES67 antenna can be supported and provide wider coverage.
“Even starting with a smaller Bolero system, we’ve been able to provide outstanding coverage for the entire stage and technical areas, including the main auditorium,” says Ivan Guerra, sound manager, Teatro Diana. “At the same time, we’ll be able to expand the installation very easily as we grow and our needs change, and it will be even easier thanks to the local resource we have in Video Integra. Thanks to the Video Integra team and their large inventory of Bolero gear, we were able to get up and running with Bolero in record time.”
