Riedel supports Azerbaijans Eurovision Song Contest

AZERBAIJAN: German Broadcast production company Brainpool TV on behalf of Ictimai TV, used an extensive installation from Riedel Communications to broadcast the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, Azerbaijan. Riedel installed a network infrastructure consisting of MediorNet, Artist, RockNet, professional radios and wireless video links.

At the heart of the installation was Riedel MediorNet which transported the majority of the event’s signals. Forty HD and SD video signals were distributed within the arena – amongst them the broadcast feed and the signals for the on-site video walls and monitors. Furthermore, Riedel was responsible for five wireless video camera systems consisting of Grass Valley LDK 8000 equipment including wireless transceivers.

Riedel also provided the communications infrastructure for the ESC. The manufacturer furnished a system combining Artist Digital Matrix Intercom with digital trunked radios (Tetra) and professional analogue radios. A total of 13 Artist 128 and Artist 64 mainframes were used as well as 82 Artist control panels including panels from the Artist 1100, 1000 and 2000 series. Nearly 900 Artist ports were available via the intercom matrix. Added to this, Riedel equipped 25 commentator booths with the Artist CCP-1116 commentary control panels.

More than 600 analogue and digital trunked (Tetra) professional mobile radios completed the communications infrastructure. The 350 Tetra radios and the 10 analogue professional radio groups were integrated into the Artist system using Riedel RiFace interfaces, which enable direct communication between Artist control panels, dedicated groups and individual digital radios.

To distribute the live audio signals at the event the rental provider Cape Cross used a Riedel RockNet digital audio network installation. A total of four interface cards for digital Yamaha mixing consoles, 12 analogue input and 17 analogue output modules, as well as RockNet fibre converters distributed the audio signals between the splitterworld, FOH and the PA.
