Using Riedel FBI interfaces we are even able to integrate commentary units into our system over existing fiber infrastructure

Riedel, one of the leading manufacturers of real-time networks for video, audio and communications, delivered a system comprising of an Artist 64 digital matrix intercom mainframe, Artist 1000 series control panels and several commentary units.

To provide a communications infrastructure, ACE Prague, one of the leading OB truck providers in Eastern Europe, chose an Artist digital matrix intercom system and five Artist 1000 series control panels. Two Artist commentary control panels, designed for comprehensive commentary applications, round out the system. Artist’s secondary audio channel via AES offers digital audio in broadcast quality that can also be used for commentary applications. One pair of Riedel FBI fiber converters for Artist intercom systems bi-directionally converts an Artist panel port from CAT5 to fiber enabling the use of Artist control panels over long distances.

“Using the Riedel FBI interfaces we are even able to integrate commentary units into our system over the existing fiber infrastructure. This significantly expands the flexibility of the ACE 08 HD,” said Pavel Přibil from ACE Prague.

 A Connect Duo interface integrates ISDN and POTS telephones into the Artist intercom infrastructure. Eleven headsets from the Riedel PRO and AIR series complete the installation.
