The new system is based on two Artist-1024 nodes, and seamlessly integrates Riedel’s Bolero wireless intercom and 1200 Series SmartPanels. Supplied by Spanish reseller Crosspoint, the Artist-1024 intercom network — the first of its kind in Spain — has helped TV3 shift to IP, realizing decentralized, scalable communications and signal distribution for news teams on any audio or intercom application.
The Artist-1024 ecosystem combines with the Bolero wireless intercom, which includes 10 antennas supporting 28 beltpacks, to give TV3’s production workflow greater versatility without compromising audio intelligibility. In addition to providing long battery life that ensures reliable operation of over 17 hours in support of production workflows, Bolero beltpacks offer such a comfortable fit that TV3 managers often forget they’re wearing them.
The installation of the Riedel systems commenced in two phases, with the deployment of a first Artist-1024 node in the CPA, followed by a second node in the news editing facility. Along the way, Crosspoint provided continuous training and support to the TV3 team.
