Riedel becomes the wireless comms provider for Opéra de Lille in France
Opéra de Lille has contracted Riedel as a provider for its communications infrastructure. The building will incorporate Riedel’s Bolero DECT-Based wireless solution, with 20 wireless beltpacks and seven antennas connected in a ring topology to enable full coverage of the opera house.
The building was built between 1907 and 1913, but its inauguration was delayed until 1923. As other historic structures, it doesn’t count with a Cat7 or Cat8 infrastructure and for that the facility leverages Riedel’s NSA-002A Network Stream Adapter interface to facilitate bidirectional audio signal transport over RJ45 wiring.
Anthony Toulotte, Audio and Video Stage Manager of the Lille’s Opera said,”Outstanding wireless communications are vital for the day-to-day operation of our theatre. When it came time to upgrade from legacy UHF technology to the state of the art, we searched for an intercom that could provide optimal functionality and minimal latency in the license-free 1.9 GHz frequency range. That led us to DECT solutions”.
“The Opéra de Lille project is a great example of how wireless communications play an essential role in live performance, but beyond that it’s a real showcase of the power of our Bolero system,” said Franck Berger, General Manager, Riedel France & Africa.
