International motorsport event Race of Champions employed Riedel’s MediorNet, Artist, and Bolero systems to run communications for its second snow and ice track, located in northern Sweden just 100 kilometres from the Arctic Circle.
The event has been using technology from Reidel for the last 12 years, but this year decided to use 10 MediorNet frames to transmit all radio comms, video, audio, and other data over one fibre-optic cable.
Additionally, Race of Champions’ Riedel Artist ecosystem included 36 intercom panels and an integrated Bolero system with 24 beltpacks and five antennas to cover its whole organisation. With six full-duplex channels per beltpack. The Riedel Managed Technology team also remained on-site during the event’s duration to offer setup and support.
“Beyond the Race Of Champions, many of us work with other large-scale sporting events, so we are familiar with Riedel’s products and use them on more than one project,” said Dominic Oliff, owner and director of operations at ROC.
“Race Of Champions has its own unique set of challenges — it’s very dynamic, things change all the time, and communication is absolutely key to that. You don’t realise the importance of communication until you don’t have it. Fortunately, we’ve been able to bring Riedel’s experience and knowledge to this event, having the confidence that if something does go wrong, they’ll have it solved within just a few seconds.”
