Riedel Communications and Grass Valley unveiled the new MediorNet interface card for integrating Grass Valley cameras into MediorNet fiber networks at IBC2012.
The new MediorNet MN-GV-2 card allows users to network Grass Valley 3G camera systems and base station, including the LDK and the new LDX series cameras, via MediorNet. This provides a solution for routing bi-directional camera signals, including all embedded audio and telemetry control data through the MediorNet fiber infrastructure.
MediorNet’s network approach allows the free assignment of cameras to any base station/CCU within the network, providing flexibility in setups and eliminating the need for re-wiring when production configurations change. In addition, the network’s point-to-multipoint capability allows a camera video signal to be routed to several outputs.
Ultimately, the Grass Valley camera system becomes an integrated part of the MediorNet backbone solution for signal distribution. The MediorNet MN-GV-2 card provides two Grass Valley 3G fiber ports that either connect to Grass Valley cameras or base stations. The card fits into MediorNet Modular Mainframes occupying a single card slot with at least two high-speed ports.
