Riedel’s radio communications network was implemented at the Audi FIS Ski World Cup.
The equipment was designed to ensure clear, reliable communications and was used by 17 different uer groups throughout race management, security and traffic control, production and catering.
The event was held at from 9-10 January at Chuenisbärgli in Adelboden, Switzerland.
“FIS World Cup events are complex productions that demand extensive and versatile communications,” said Kathrin Hager, general manager and head of marketing and sponsoring at Ski World Cup Adelboden.
“Riedel Switzerland helped us to design a network that tied together thousands of essential communications threads and to ensure that all key user groups were connected in a way that supported their roles in making the race a success.”
A Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom and control panels were installed in the mobile operations centre, along with a MediorNet Compact Pro real-time media network, RockNet real-time audio network, RiFace universal radio interface, and DMR repeater supporting 300 radios.
The range of systems were also installed in the finish area, where they supported commentary, the LED screens transmitting the broadcast feed, and the feed used for production of an on-site program.
In the marketplace village, additional Artist, RockNet, and RiFace systems were deployed along with a Riedel Performer digital partyline system to support LED screens, live entertainment, and presentations.
“The Audi FIS Ski World Cup in Adelboden is a premier international sports event that combines thrilling giant slalom racing with great live entertainment, and our intercom and radio communications solutions are an ideal fit for both these applications,” said Martin Céréda, project manager at Riedel Communications.
“We’re proud that our systems supported yet another memorable race weekend at Chuenisbärgli.”
