The well-known organiser – Event360 – combines unrivalled experience and creativity to deliver innovative entertainment during major international sporting events. To run one of the most important events in the football calendar like clockwork, it’s crucial their staff have access to the latest two way radios which are reliable, weatherproof and really simple to use.
So, after testing the terrain at this landmark venue, we issued managers and stewards with Motorola DP2400 digital radios for the first notable final of the season. Being able to communicate anywhere on-site, at the touch of a button, meant Event360’s operatives could carry out their duties swiftly, and efficiently, as well as seriously improve crowd safety.
The DP2400s are groundbreaking radios that provide new features such as full coverage; high-quality voice clarity; intelligent audio; noise-cancellation; private calling plus the latest safety features. Their robust, durable design means stadium personnel can use them in the harshest weather conditions. But more than that, users also enjoy 30-50 percent longer battery life compared to traditional analogue radios. Consequently, they can now work long hours without having to interrupt their shift and recharge their batteries.
These days, the strict health and safety regulations mean event organisers are less tolerant of poor radio performance. That means they now refuse to use old technology. The fact is, stadiums of all sizes can benefit at a stroke from digital radio communications. For example, this groundbreaking technology gives them the flexibility to contact the whole workforce, communicate with various work groups, or simply talk privately to a selected individual.
The staff can speed up communication by designating channels by group names, plus security teams can opt to operate on a dedicated channel of their own. It is also possible to send preset texts in the blink of an eye. These messages are really useful when senior staff want to send instructions to alert stewards and security when the gates are ready to open… when it’s half-time… and when the game is over.
The radios’ digital noise-rejection technology means staff can communicate clearly when amongst bellowing supporters – even from the furthest corners of the ground. But more than that, the ‘intelligent audio’ automatically adjusts the radio volume to compensate for any background noise present. The upshot is personnel don’t have to tolerate missed calls when at the coal face (when they need to receive them most). In addition, we supplied the staff with rugged headsets. These have the ability to protect their hearing in loud environments, and make transmissions even clearer through its noise-reducing boom microphone. The integrated ‘push-to-talk’ button also allows multi-tasking workers to operate their portable radios hands-free.
Unavoidably, match days expose radio users to personal risk – especially when operating away from their colleagues. The ‘Lone Worker’ feature offers everyone peace of mind by continuously monitoring their safety status. Employees also have the option to call for assistance, at any time, by depressing a programmable button.
