For the January 2017 grand opening of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, communications specialist Riedel provided the NDR (Northern German Broadcasting) with a TETRA Communication system.
Together with the TETRA communications system from manufacturer DAMM, Riedel also rented out 75 portable TETRA radios from Motorola Solutions. Riedel connected the TETRA system to the communication system from the Elbphilharmonie in order to ensure seamless communication.
In order to stay connected with each other, the TETRA system was used by the technical staff as well as the creative team of the NDR For the future, NDR will use the same configuration during 5 to 10 other productions.
Riedel delivered and installed the system in record time. The whole network was fully operational in less than 30 minutes. However, as the new building is one of the largest buildings in Germany, the preparation took about two days. Riedel had to manage planning, install cables and securing the right locations.
In the flow of the river Elbe and surrounded on three sides by water, the new concert hall is a center of attraction for all who live in the city of Hamburg as well as for visitors from all over the world. The spectacular building houses three concert halls, a large music education area, a range of places to eat and drink, a hotel and the public Plaza, which offers visitors an unparalleled panoramic view over the whole city. Artistic quality, variety and accessibility shape the musical programme of Hamburg's new cultural landmark.
