GERMANY/UK: Riedel Communications held several training sessions in the UK last month, reports David Davies. The 'Riedel Tuesday' events attracted representatives from companies including BT, Arena Outside Broadcast (whose team is pictured here with Riedel's project manager, Peter Siebert) and Cloudbass.

The training tour followed the recent inception of a dedicated UK office for the German manufacturer.

"In the future we'll provide sessions like this on a regular basis," said Paul Rivens, business development director with Riedel. "Customers and other interested parties are invited to either our office or a customer's facility to join us for a day of product training and discussion."

As part of the events, Riedel showcased its Artist Digital Intercom system. Among a number of high-profile installations, the system was recently selected by Beijing Television for its new studio complex.
