As an all-new wireless intercom system capable of supporting up to 250 beltpacks and 100 antennas in a single deployment, Bolero is a true game-changer. Bolero redefines the wireless intercom category with features such as its ADR (Advanced DECT Receiver) with multi-diversity and anti-reflection technology for greater RF robustness, “Touch&Go” NFC beltpack registration, and versatile operation as a wireless beltpack, a wireless keypanel, or — in an industry first — a walkie-talkie.

With the addition of the newest Bolero Standalone 2110 (AES67) mode, there are now three network modes available for Bolero systems – each of them dedicated to specific applications.

  • Bolero Integrated leverages the powerful Artist infrastructure, including SmartPanels and extensive I/O connectivity.
  • Bolero Standalone Link provides plug & play simplicity that is especially suited to smaller installations, portable deployments, or cases when Bolero needs to be interfaced to other systems without the need for an Artist matrix.
  • Bolero Standalone 2110 (AES67) enables users to set up a standards-based (SMPTE 2210/AES67) IP network with no Artist required.

The Bolero high-clarity voice codec provides both higher speech intelligibility and more efficient use of RF spectrum supporting twice the number of beltpacks per antenna for the same radio bandwidth as other DECT-based systems. The Riedel-exclusive ADR technology combines a unique receiver design with multiple diversity elements specifically designed to reduce sensitivity to multipath reflections, making Bolero useable in challenging RF environments where other systems have great difficulty.

The beltpack itself features six intercom channels and a separate “Reply” button for a quick reply to the last caller. Bolero’s sunlight readable and dimmable display can be rotated so that it is readable in any orientation. Also, in an industry first, the beltpack can be used without a headset like a walkie-talkie radio utilizing an integrated mic and speaker. Bolero beltpacks support Bluetooth, allowing either a Bluetooth headset or a Smartphone to be connected. When a Smartphone is connected, the beltpack can act like a car’s “hands free” setup so the user can receive calls on their phone and talk and listen via their beltpack headset. Users can also inject phone calls directly into the intercom channels, providing new levels of workflow flexibility.

Based on Riedel’s extensive Managed Technologies experience, the beltpack uses a combination of premium materials, including high-impact plastics and rubber overmolds, making it both tough and comfortable to use in any situation.
