Red Bull Stratos Roars with Riedel

Publish date:

To facilitate Felix Baumgartner’s Red Bull Stratos 120,000 ft. skydive, Riedel Communications provided communications solutions, fiber-based video and signal distribution and wireless video links from the capsule’s onboard cameras. Within the capsule that transported Baumgartner into the stratosphere on October 14, Riedel installed a video control system for nine HD video cameras with specially developed telemetry control. On the ground, communication systems were integrated into a single infrastructure using a Riedel Artist Digital Matrix system. Additionally, video signals on the ground were distributed and routed with Riedel’s MediorNet technology, a fiber-based real-time network for HD video, audio, communications and data signals.
