Riedel will use NAB to update its MediorNet family of real-time networks for video, audio, data and communications with MediorNet 2.0, a firmware update.
The MediorNet family will also be expanded with the addition of the 2-RU large-scale MediorNet MetroN core router. In enabling Riedel’s networked approach to signal distribution and routing, the new MediorNet MetroN provides a real-time routing capacity of 64x 10G ports.
At the show, Riedel will demonstrate how, with these capabilities, the new frame can function within a larger MediorNet installation, interfacing with other MediorNet frames via fiber.
Leveraging their newly acquired WAN expertise, Riedel has developed their first WAN-focused solution. Using the MediorNet platform as a base, attendee’s at NAB will see how the networked approach of MediorNet can be expanded to include WAN capabilities.
Enabling direct integration of Riedel MediorNet real-time networks with Studer consoles and cores, the new A-Link interface module gives Studer users a scalable audio routing system offering I/O capacities in excess of 10,000 I/O’s. Using MediorNet as a decentralized audio router with integrated port redundancies, this solution offers massive I/O capacity in a very small hardware footprint.
The integrated system may be configured to provide a video and audio routing solution with de-embedded audio from the SDI streams being sent to the Studer consoles, with the return signals then embedded back into the video.
Finally, Riedel’s Artist virtual key panels enable the use of smartphones and tablets (iOS, OS X and Android) as control panels in combination with any Artist digital matrix intercom system.
These handheld devices can then provide the same functionality as full-featured, 12-key Artist control panels. The user operates the virtual control panel using the device’s touchscreen interface that can be configured via Riedel’s Director software.
