Riedel Extends Intercom Options
Riedel Communications introduced three audio and video distribution products at its 2011 NAB Show press conference.
The Performer C22 System Interface converts two two-channel CAT-5 matrix ports into two phantom-powered digital beltpack lines that can connect a digital party line to a matrix intercom system or an AES-standard audio routing system.
The Artist CCP-1116 is a commentary unit for two talent positions that contains integrated intercom functionality for Riedel's Artist Digital Matrix Intercom Systems. A total of two commentator lines are supported with 48 V phantom power for condenser microphones, a low-cut filter, a 6 dBu limiter, level meter, tally light and cough switch.
The MediorNet Compact is a 3 rackunit fiber-based multimedia stagebox with a network bandwidth of 50 Gbps that can distribute up to 12 bi-directional HD signals, with four AES digital audio ports and four analog audio inputs and outputs with a 117 dB dynamic range.
It also includes a frame store synchronizer, embedder/de-embedder, test pattern generator, on-screen display and timecode insertion at each video port.
MediorNet Compact units connect to other networks with ring, daisy-chain, star or any combination of network topologies, and connect to existing MediorNet systems. © 2011 NAB
