As an all-new wireless intercom system capable of supporting 10 beltpacks per antenna and up to 100 antennas in a single deployment, Bolero is a true game-changer. Bolero redefines the wireless intercom category with features such as ADR (Advanced DECT Receiver) with multiple-diversity and RF anti-reflection technology for greater RF robustness, complete integration with Riedel’s Artist, “Touch&Go” beltpack registration, and versatile operation as a wireless beltpack, a wireless keypanel, and — in an industry first —a walkie-talkie.
When used with Artist, Bolero runs over a standards-based AES67 IP network with decentralized antennas connected to AES67 switches and to Artist frames equipped with AES67 client cards, providing a fully integrated point-to-point roaming intercom ecosystem. The more decentralized antennas added, the more robust the network becomes.
Bolero’s Standalone Application is license-based and comes with several plug-and-play features. First, antennas can be used individually, in a ring structure, or daisy-chained as the situation demands. Also, up to 100 antennas and 100 beltpacks can be integrated into a single system. These antennas can be placed up to 300 metres apart and up to five can be powered via the CAT5 network using a new external PSU. The system is quickly and easily configured over the IP connection using a web browser. Finally, a throw-down box can be used to interface the standalone Bolero with other intercom systems via 4-wire.
The Bolero high-clarity voice codec provides both higher speech intelligibility and more efficient use of RF spectrum supporting twice the number of beltpacks per antenna for the same audio bandwidth as other DECT-based systems.
The Riedel-exclusive ADR technology, combines a unique receiver design with multiple diversity elements specifically designed to reduce sensitivity to multipath RF reflections, making Bolero useable in challenging RF environments where other systems have great difficulty.
The beltpack itself features six buttons for six intercom channels or point to point communications, plus a separate “Reply” button that easily facilitates a reply to the last person that called. Bolero’s sunlight readable and dimmable display can be inverted so that it is readable in any orientation. Also, in an industry first, the beltpack can be used without a headset like a walkie-talkie radio utilizing an integrated mic and speaker.
Bolero beltpacks support Bluetooth 4.1, allowing either a Bluetooth headset or a Smartphone to be connected. When a Smartphone is connected, the beltpack can act like a car’s “hands free” setup so the user can receive calls on their phone and talk and listen via their beltpack headset. Users can also inject phone calls directly into the intercom channels, providing new levels of workflow flexibility.
Based on Riedel’s extensive rental experience, the beltpack uses a combination of premium materials, including high-impact plastics and rubber overmolds making it both tough and comfortable to use in any situation.

The latest addition to Dahua Technology’s multi-sensor family is the Multi-flex™ (DH-IPC-PDBW5831N-B360). The 4x2MP Multi-sensor Camera was built for flexibility and evolving customer change-requirements. The unique, future-proof platform of the Multi-flex™ provides organizations of all sizes the ability to deploy a security system that truly matches their video surveillance needs now; and again if requirements change in the future.
Dahua Technology, is a leading video surveillance solutions provider, and has announced the addition of two new multi-sensor cameras to its North America IP product line.
The camera offers advanced streaming capabilities and is designed on an efficient H.265 encoding platform capable of delivering high quality video without straining the network. With the Dahua Smart H.264+ / H.265+ optimized codec, a higher savings on bandwidth and storage is realized.
With its ground-breaking flexibility to simultaneously move each sensor module around the camera’s internal track for 180-, 270-, or 360-degree fields of view, and its integrated IR illuminators, at up to 98 feet (30 meters), the Multi-flex™ can be configured to minimize blind spots for improved situational awareness.
Regardless of the time of day, this camera is ideal for applications with challenging lighting conditions. The Multi-flex™ offers Enhanced Starlight Technology so that images remain in colour for a longer period of time (0.005 lux). The camera combines a true day/night mechanical IR cut filter for high quality images in environments with changing lighting conditions. For applications with bright or over saturated lighting, true wide dynamic range delivers up to 120 dB at full resolution on channel 1 and digital wide dynamic range on channels 2-4. Power can be supplied via a single Power-over-Ethernet compliant network cable (PoE+) or with power from a 24V AC, 3 A power supply.
“The Multi-flex’s name refers to the sheer amount of flexibility it gives to the end-user,” Jennifer Hackenburg, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Dahua Technology USA, noted. “Dahua Technology built this high-performing camera to make security solutions more flexible, easier to use, and more cost-efficient.”
Dahua Technology’s new Dual-Sensor Dome Camera (DH-IPC-HDBW4231FN-E2-M Series) functions as two individual cameras in one compact indoor/outdoor rated housing. Options include an RJ45 connector with a 2.8mm lens and an M12 D-coded Ethernet connector for an added level of stability in a mobile environment with a 2.8mm or 3.6mm lens. All options include EN 50155 shock and vibration certification. The camera has two independent, 2MP, STARVIS™ CMOS sensors with dual-stream encoding (per sensor) and the Dahua Intelligent Video System (IVS) analytics, including facial detection.
Additional highlights include IR distance of up to 66 feet (20 meters), Basic Starlight Technology for scenes with low-light conditions (0.009 lux), and True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) at 120 dB for challenging direct sunlight or glare. Power can be supplied via a single Power-over-Ethernet compliant network cable (PoE) or with power from a 12 VDC power supply.
“Multi-sensor cameras are designed to streamline an application for higher efficiency, less maintenance and a lower total cost of ownership,” Hackenburg explained. “Multi-sensors have a pleasing aesthetic due to their compact housing, and there’s less clutter because there’s no need to install multiple single-sensor cameras.”
Dahua Technology’s Multi-flex™ and Dual-Sensor offer an interface that allows for an intuitive, fast, and easy configuration; while the Smart PSS tool enables users to quickly configure multiple cameras at one time. Both cameras are ONVIF compliant, providing interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. Additionally, only one VMS license is required, saving even more on your investment.
Dahua Technology’s new multi-sensors, along with a wealth of other innovative video surveillance solutions, will showcase at ISC West, April 10-12, 2019 in Las Vegas or Visit them online.
