Riedel HD Intercom ‘Artist’ Tapped for Sweetwater Truck
April 9, 2008
Sweetwater Digital Productions has chosen Riedel Communication’s Artist digital intercom matrix to install in its new HD video truck (dubbed “Cobalt”). Sweetwater specializes in the rental of video production trucks, custom control rooms and other production equipment used in the entertainment industry.
The new 53-foot HD vehicle built for entertainment show production is wired for up to 20 cameras. At the heart of the truck lies a 192x192 Artist matrix in two frames joined with fiber. The system connects digitally to the main audio router directly via AES audio on AES-108 client cards, thus eliminating the need for external AD/DA converters.
Coax client cards allow control panels to be wired via coax cabling and analog cards offer transformer balanced 4-wire I/Os.
