BOLERO

BOLERO WIRELESS INTERCOM

As an all-new wireless intercom system capable of supporting 10 beltpacks per antenna and up to 100 antennas in a single deployment, Bolero is a true game-changer. Bolero redefines the wireless intercom category with features such as ADR (Advanced DECT Receiver) with multiple-diversity and RF anti-reflection technology for greater RF robustness, complete integration with Riedel’s Artist, “Touch&Go” beltpack registration, and versatile operation as a wireless beltpack, a wireless keypanel, and — in an industry first —a walkie-talkie.

When used with Artist, Bolero runs over a standards-based AES67 IP network with decentralized antennas connected to AES67 switches and to Artist frames equipped with AES67 client cards, providing a fully integrated point-to-point roaming intercom ecosystem. The more decentralized antennas added, the more robust the network becomes.

Bolero’s Standalone Application is license-based and comes with several plug-and-play features. First, antennas can be used individually, in a ring structure, or daisy-chained as the situation demands. Also, up to 100 antennas and 100 beltpacks can be integrated into a single system. These antennas can be placed up to 300 meters apart and up to five can be powered via the CAT5 network using a new external PSU. The system is quickly and easily configured over the IP connection using a web browser. Finally, a throw-down box can be used to interface the standalone Bolero with other intercom systems via 4-wire.

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 audio 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 RF reflections, making Bolero useable in challenging RF environments where other systems have great difficulty.

The beltpack itself features six buttons for six intercom channels or point to point communications, plus a separate “Reply” button that easily facilitates a reply to the last person that called. Bolero’s sunlight readable and dimmable display can be inverted 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 4.1, 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 rental 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.
