Riedel to unveil intercom-over-IP products at IBC
Riedel Communications will introduce a range of intercom-over-IP solutions at IBC in September.
The new Connect IPx8 is a 19in 1RU unit, which converts eight bidirectional AES or analog signals into IP data and vice versa for easy two-way communication. It’s the perfect teammate for the company’s Artist VOIP-108 G2 client card, which is being launched at the IBC conference. The solution provides intercom interfacing to IP-based networks and allows matrix-to-matrix connections, matrix-to-control panel connections as well as the distribution of audio lines over IP.
Connect IPx8 is available in three versions, offering different interface options. The Cat 5 and coax versions are for connecting panels and other AES signals, while the AIO version connects four-wires and other analog sources. The Connect IPx8 can connect up to eight standard Artist 1000, 2000 or 3000 series control panels with full functionality to an Artist matrix via an IP network.
Riedel’s updated Performer C44plus system interface now incorporates the new Audio Assignment Software for editing of the internal 24 x 24 matrix of the device. The Performer C44 plus integrates digital party lines into matrix intercom environments.
