Riedel Communications at SET EXPO 2014
Riedel Communications designs, manufactures, and distributes pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks for broadcast, pro audio, event, sports, theater, and security applications. The company also provides rental services for radio and intercom systems, event IT solutions, fiber backbones, and wireless signal transmission systems that scale easily for events of any size, anywhere in the world. Founded in 1987, the company now employs more than 400 people at 11 locations in Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas.
The MediorNet family of real-time networks has been expanded with the addition of the 2-RU large-scale MediorNet MetroN core router. In enabling Riedel's acclaimed networked approach to signal distribution and routing, the new MediorNet MetroN provides a real-time routing capacity of 64x 10G ports. During SET Expo, Riedel will demonstrate how, with these capabilities, the new frame can function within a larger MediorNet installation, interfacing with other MediorNet frames via fiber.
Virtual Key Panel App for Artist Intercom System
Riedel's Artist virtual key panels enable the use of smartphones and tablets (iOS, OS X®, and Android) as control panels in combination with any Artist digital matrix intercom system. These handheld devices can then provide the same functionality as full-featured, 12-key Artist control panels. The user operates the virtual control panel using the device's touchscreen interface that can be configured via Riedel's Director software.
Sony Camera Integration
During SET Expo, Riedel will showcase a new solution, co-developed with Sony, that gives MediorNet users access to the bidirectional video and camera control for Sony HD cameras via a SMPTE hybrid copper/fiber connection. With this solution, users can leverage MediorNet's networked approach to signal acquisition and distribution to eliminate the re-patching associated with cameras changing locations during an event, thus simplifying cabling and saving time on set-up and strike.
