Case Study: City of Newport Half Marathon
Initially, the organisers needed advice and support to ensure they had a system that met their needs. After early talks, we were able to identify the key requirements, which were wide area coverage and clear audio for the users to communicate over the noise generated from the supporters along the course and at the start and finish area.
The Mototrbo DP4400e hand portable benefits from Intelligent audio, which means the radio volume automatically adjusts to back ground noise - ideal for crowd environments. The Li-Ion battery option provides a lightweight solution as well as lasting for up to 16 hours.
All of the hand portables are fully charged and numbered before delivery, log sheets are provided to record users and training given to key staff members.
With a lot of the stewards being volunteers, we have ensured the system is simple to use whilst giving instant communication across the event area.
