The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), Hong Kong’s premier horse racing operator and one of its most venerable sports organizations, has chosen Riedel Communications’ Bolero wireless intercom system to streamline communications for its video productions. Bolero is seamlessly integrated with Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom system to provide comprehensive communications across two separate HKJC race courses and in the HKJC studio located in Sha Tin. Founded in 1884, HKJC provides horse racing, sporting, and betting on horse racing and overseas football events. HKJC has initially purchased 12 Bolero backpacks, with plans to add more in 2018, for communications links between its TV studio in the Sha Tin district and its Happy Valley and Sha Tin race courses. The Bolero systems first went into service for international races in early December.

Yeung Shui Kin, Senior Broadcasting Services Manager at the Hong Kong Jockey Club. “After just two weeks of operation, the performance of Bolero has more than met our expectations by delivering outstanding sound quality from any point on our race courses. Also, Bolero’s integration with our Artist frame is a huge plus.”
