Based on IP and DECT expandable, this system integrates with digital matrix intercom Artist from manufacturer to offer new features and connectivity with which the company ensures that it will change the rules of the market of intercommunication.

the multinational Riedel It has taken advantage of its participation in Prolight + Sound 2017, held these days in Frankfurt, to present Bolero, its new solution of intercom based on expandable DECT and IP; integrated with its parent company Artist and completely itinerant in the 1.9 license free frequency range GHz, among other features.

Bolero takes full advantage of NFC (Near Field Communication) and ADR (Advanced DECT Receiver) technologies and has new features and connectivity that allows its application in three ways, as noted in the company: as a pack of wireless band; as a panel wireless keyboard and, for the first time in the industry, as a walkie-talkie.

This solution works over an IP network based on AES67 standards. Decentralized antennas are connected to the switches AES67 and the Artist frames, equipped with cards of client AES67, whose result is an ecosystem of intercom point to point fully integrated, seamless roaming capabilities.

Voice of Bolero encoder offers greater intelligibility of the word and a more efficient use of the spectrum, supporting the beltpacks twice per antenna for the same bandwidth of audio than other systems based on DECT. As for the codec, characterized by an exceptional latency, with an optimal processing power and great the battery life of the belt, which saves processing power DSP for other functions.

Riedel also has joined Bolero its unique diversity receiver technology ADR (Advanced DECT Receiver) to reduce the sensitivity to the reflections of RF multipath, resulting in this system to be used in difficult RF environments where other solutions have great difficulties.

As explains Jake Dodson, managing director of Riedel products, "when we designed Bolero wanted to make life as easy as possible for the customer. Registration can be a complex process that requires a user to go to the menu of the clip and apply a 'pin code ' that can register in the respective antennas, and that can take a couple of minutes by beltpack. Imagine doing this for twenty-five beltpacks. Bolero incorporates NFC both the clip and the active antenna, and the user only needs to bring the beltpack to the antenna to complete the registration process."

Another of its characteristics is that it supports Bluetooth 4.1 to connect a Bluetooth headset or a smartphone, so the beltpack can act as a 'hands-free' so that the user receives calls in your phone, and speaking and listening through your headset beltpack; as well as make calls and connect into the intercom matrix, eliminating the need for a hybrid phone.

Each cube has six buttons for each of the six channels of the intercom, as well as a button for quick response to the last channel you called. In addition, beltpack can be used without a headset, as a radio walkie-talkie with a built-in microphone and speaker.

Thomas Riedel, CEO of Riedel, "Bolero is a change of category for wireless intercom systems. We are very proud to share that the BBC is already building its new intercom systems study around the wireless concept of Bolero".
