Motorola Solutions and partner 2CL Communications Ltd are providing MOTOTRBO two-way digital radios to London’s Royal Albert Hall as it hosts the BBC Proms 2015, the world’s largest classical music festival.
The Royal Albert Hall is using 122 digital portable MOTOTRBO radios to facilitate staff operations. The installed MOTOTRBO digital radios ensure there is no audio degradation in transmission, and through the application of ‘Intelligent Audio’, are able to enhance audibility. By monitoring background noise and automatically adjusting the speaker volume, the radio eliminates the need for continual adjustment by the user.
The Royal Albert Hall has four MOTOTRBO DR 3000 repeaters installed with MOTORBO Capacity Plus software giving multiple operating channels throughout the 150-year-old building.
The addition of Capacity Plus, a scalable, single-site digital trunking solution, ensures that the Royal Albert Hall is able to better control the allocation of channels for secure conversations. Security staff can simply select from a contact list, press the call button and talk with the knowledge that front of house or maintenance staff are unable to listen in.
To manage the demands of larger concerts, such as the Proms, Royal Albert Hall uses additional MOTOTRBO radios from 2CL Communications.
“2CL Communications was quick to understand our need for an up-to-date, two–way digital radio system that would be used by security, front of house and maintenance,” said Tony Gale, facilities manager, Royal Albert Hall. “Its tailored service and Motorola Solutions products have been fantastic.”
“The Royal Albert Hall really appreciates how valuable radio communications are to ensure the safety of their customers at this prestigious venue,” said Graham Cole, sales manager, 2CL Communications.
“When it comes to increasing a mobile work team’s operational efficiency, MOTOTRBO radios are the tool of choice for effortlessly connecting people, as well as improving efficiency, visitor services and safety,” said Phil Jefferson, country manager, Motorola Solutions UK.
Running from July to September, the Proms are a century-old summer series of daily classical music concerts, hosted by the Royal Albert Hall since 1941. Today it is the largest classical musical festival in the world. The Proms will be attended by more than 280,000 music fans over eight weeks.
