The Netherlands’ Heuvelman Sound and Vision used Riedel equipment to provide an interconnected digital TETRA system and intercom system for the Rabobank Hockey World Cup 2014 in The Hague.
Throughout the field hockey tournament, the Riedel installation supported HD video transport for two LED screens in Kyocera Stadium, audio and video for displays across the press village, and flexible data and intercom communications across the event.
The Rabobank Hockey World Cup 2014, consisting of 76 matches, represented both the men’s and women’s World Cup tournaments, with up to sic matches taking place each day. Heuvelman deployed Riedel’s MediorNet realtime network along with an Artist intercom system, using the Juggler digital trunked radio network solution to enable connection of 220 Motorola TETRA radios to the Artist system over MediorNet.
The installation included five MediorNet frames as well as the Artist digital matrix intercom system for wired communications. The wireless Motorola radios were tied into this system via Riedel’s Juggler.
“Riedel gear was a perfect fit for this project because it alone would allow us to connect a digital TETRA system to an intercom system,” said Arjen Buijs, sales manager at Heuvelman Sound and Vision. “The versatility and reliability of Riedel systems are always a compelling reason to use the gear, and they provided seamless interoperability and smooth performance throughout this tournament.”
