FIS Nordic Ski World Championship host broadcaster TRIO relied on an extensive array of technology to connect remote venues and the international broadcast center used during last month’s event in Oberstdorf, Germany.

TRIO, a joint venture of ARD and ZDF, relied upon a Telecast-System from Riedel Communications to transmit video between the Schattenberg jump base in Oberstdorf and the television compound in Ried.

The Riedel Artist digital matrix was also used to transmit and distribute intercom and audio signals between Schattenberg and the cross country ski center in Ried. More than 6mi of fiber optic cable were required to connect the two venues.

Riedel’s Riface radio technology was used in three radio installations, each containing up to 12 repeater channels. The Artist platform delivered network and central control of the installation. Riedel provided programming and handled 450 radio units, including individual accessories.

In Oberstdorf, Riedel engineers supplied computer network technology, workstations and full support services to supplement the event’s IT infrastructure. The IT solution gave more than 250 journalists and organizing committee members instant access to the Internet and their e-mail accounts.

The FIS Nordic Ski World Championship took place Feb. 16-27 and attracted more than 360,000 visitors.
