Artist zooms in on IPL 10
INDIA: OB production service provider Zoom Communications has employed a Riedel Communications Artist digital matrix intercom system as the comms solution for its coverage of the 2017 Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket season. The Artist intercom frames form part of OB inventory offered to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which provides the broadcast feed to rights holders around the globe.
The IPL is currently celebrating its 10th year and as such has dubbed the 2017 season IPL 10. ‘With millions of cricket fans around the world tuned into IPL 10 matches, there's no room for failure in any of our broadcast technology solutions,’ said Karamjeet Singh, senior vice president at Zoom Communications. ‘Riedel brings proven expertise in the support of high-visibility sports events to the table, and the Artist intercom systems have served us well for several past years of IPL coverage. That's why we can offer Artist with the full confidence that it will provide the secure, user-friendly, and reliable communications our clients need. For this season, we have brought in two additional systems in order to ensure uniformity and seamless operation between the different crews.’
‘As Riedel sharpens its focus on India, we couldn't ask for a better endorsement than Zoom Communications' choice of Artist for IPL 10,’ stated Riedel's director for the Asia-Pacific region, Cameron O'Neill. ‘It's a great testimonial for Riedel that Zoom has chosen to trust the comms in its kits for this prestigious production to Artist. IPL 10 promises to have the highest viewership of any cricket event ever and the season will showcase the sport's best talents from around the world.’
