Riedel Communications has been awarded a Sports Emmy Award in the category of "Outstanding New Approaches Sports Event Coverage" for the production of the Red Bull Stratos project. In a first-of-a-kind sports production from the edge of space, the Red Bull Stratos project captured aviation pioneer Felix Baumgartner's ascent to 39,045m in a stratospheric capsule and balloon and his subsequent freefall jump, rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds, and parachute landing. For the production, Riedel furnished the fiber-based video and signal distribution systems, as well as the wireless video links from the capsule's onboard cameras, enabling the stunning pictures delivered from the Red Bull Stratos capsule. In addition, Riedel provided the entire communications solution for the record-breaking project, integrating both wireless and wired digital intercom systems. www.riedel.net
