China (April 15, 2019)—Riedel Communications is supporting TechSound, a Shanghai-based company designing and operating player communications systems for China esports clients based on Riedel's Artist digital matrix intercom system, Performer partyline system and MAX headsets.
The Riedel Artist system integrates with audio routers and consoles in remote broadcast production workflows, and its modular architecture provides a variety of connectivity options.
For a recent international esports event held in northern China, the Riedel solution allowed TechSound team members to integrate intercom, wireless and walkie-talkie systems from different rental vendors and manufacturers into one communications system. TechSound also manages semi-permanently installed season systems, connecting stage referees and players across six Chinese cities back to a centralized production studio.
"With the Riedel solution, our producers can sit in Shanghai and call shows in other cities," said Patrick McGowan, director at TechSound, a r consultancy and systems engineering company serving the expanding Chinese esports and live event markets. "Direct communication with on-stage referees at different venues allows for a remote workflow that saves on hotel and flight costs. Because the solution integrates so well with other production tools, we can easily and cost-effectively add further studios or sites to the production."
