Radio Marconi is an Italian-based company that has installed and serviced audio-visual and radio equipment since 1993. It designs interactive multimedia communication systems. The company has also developed several applications for theaters, conference centers, museums and stadiums. During its lifespan, the company has become a service center for brands such as Sony, Sennheiser, Neumann, and Televic, with customers based in radio, television, theater, public authorities and security forces.
In 2004, after completing a project for the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Radio Marconi was transformed from a uninominal to a limited liability company.
Radio Marconi began focusing on the development of proprietary technologies in 2006 and started its international expansion, with the first international project realized in 2007 at the Oslo Opera House. The company made a patent application in Italy in November 2007.
In 2009, it further developed technology aimed at low consumption[clarification needed] multimedia technology (known as MODE23). Patent applications were expanded to Europe, United States, Canada, China, Oman, Qatar and United Arab Emirates. In 2010, the company obtained a patent for its MODE23 technology in its native country. Its applications extend to other parallel markets, such as those involved with sport.
In 2011, Radio Marconi was involved with the first worldwide large scale installation of interactive multimedia technology at the Royal Opera House Muscat in Oman. This project was a finalist in the “Most InAVative Leisure & Entertainment Facility” category at the InAVation Awards 2013.
