Riedel Digital Matrix and Wireless Intercoms Enable Flexible, Clear Communications at Pershing Square Signature Center

GLENDALE, Calif. — March 28, 2013 — Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced that New York City’s Signature Theatre Company has installed a Riedel digital intercom system at the Pershing Square Signature Center, the company’s Frank Gehry-designed home situated off-Broadway on 42nd Street. The installation includes the Riedel Artist digital intercom matrix and Acrobat Digital Wireless Intercom system, which unite to provide a flexible platform for broadcast-audio-quality communications throughout the facility.

“Riedel’s digital intercom products give us the quality and versatility that is critical for productions in a modern theater environment,” said Graham Johnson, sound, video, and communications supervisor at Signature Theatre Company. “Not only is the ability to communicate essential to the production, but it is also critical to the safety of our staff and performers. The Riedel systems have surpassed our expectations in every way.”

The facility’s Artist systems feature a distributed masterless system architecture that significantly reduces wiring, making it easy and cost-effective for users to configure intercom panels and partylines to meet current production requirements at the center’s three theaters: the Linney, the Diamond, and the Griffin. For each theater, engineers have created stage manager stations comprised of Artist 1000 Series control key-panels packaged into flight cases. Access plates throughout the building provide connections for both Artist control panels and Performer digital partylines, which are routed via a central patch bay.

The theater company uses an Acrobat CC-60 cell controller to support 16 wireless beltpacks. In addition, 24 Acrobat CA-6 cell antenna units installed at the Pershing Square Signature Center ensure complete coverage of the building with seamless hand-over between the antennas’ cells, providing intercom communications with consistently high audio quality regardless of users’ location. The Acrobat system is optimized for both partyline and point-to-point communications and provides digital audio quality without interfering with UHF radio microphones or in-ear monitors.

Additional information about Riedel Communications, the company’s Artist digital intercom matrix, and the Acrobat digital wireless system is available at www.riedel.net.
