Often the size, weight, or functionality of an existing product or technology is not sufficient for the challenging environments of sports productions. For this reason our Managed Sports Services division develops tailor-made products that are suitable for very specific applications.
Ranging from motorsports (incl. F1 and DTM) or sailing competitions (America's Cup) to projects like the Stratos jump, our portfolio now includes services for referee communications.
Managed Sports Services not only consist of the development of extra hard- and software dedicated to sports productions but also involves Riedel’s engineers ensuring the smooth implementation of our innovations; on site or remotely. Our innovations as well as our teams of experts are an integral part of leading sports series with our technology enabling and even driving the evolution of sports entertainment concepts.
