Event 360, an events management company that specialises in sports fixtures, manages this RBS Six Nations event. Event 360 used the Brentwood’s hire service to provide the communications hardware it needs to keep things running smoothly.
The Six Nations event attracts rugby fans from all over Europe, but that’s not the extent of its reach. For the first time, the BBC will also be live streaming some of the matches in space. ISS astronaut Major Tim Peake is just one of millions of people who will enjoy the exciting tournament unfold, and the pressure will be on Event 360 to manage this high profile event.
With so many people in attendance, and such huge interest around the world, Event 360 need radios that will work reliably. As such, the Brentwood team recommended the Motorola DP2400 digital two way radio for the event. This radio is one of our most commonly hired pieces of equipment, and there are plenty of reasons to recommend it.
The durable Motorola DP2400 is great for general outdoor use, since its IP55 rating provides the protection it needs for all weathers. It can withstand being dropped into mud, and resists fine dust particles in the field, and it can also cope with being used in a heavy rain shower. In short, it’s just what you need for a Welsh rugby tournament in February.
The Intelligent Audio feature is something many clients find very useful. In noisy environments, the radio automatically increases its volume to compensate for the ambient noise. That means radio users can move from stadium conditions to quiet indoor areas, without having to manually change the volume of the speaker.
In addition to the Motorola DP2400 two way radios, Event 360 also hired headsets and earpieces to support hands-free use.
We supplied a number of heavy duty headsets to cope with the loud stadium environment, and a batch of lightweight headsets, so that staff in all roles were able to work efficiently and without risk. We also supplied some two wire acoustic tube earpieces, which are designed for discreet use – ideal for crowd control and security personnel who need to stay in constant contact.
