Bolero Wireless Intercom System
Riedel’s Bolero is a game-changing new wireless intercom system in the license-free 1.9GHz frequency range. Bolero offers a rich set of features and connectivity that can be applied three ways: as an exceptional wireless beltpack, as a wireless keypanel, and — in an industry first — as a walkie-talkie radio.
The system runs over a standards-based AES67 IP network, and its decentralized antennas connect to AES67 switches and then to Artist frames equipped with AES67 client cards to provide a fully integrated point-to-point intercom ecosystem with seamless handover capabilities.
Bolero uses a high-clarity 7KHz voice codec to provide higher speech intelligibility and more efficient use of the RF spectrum. The codec offers excellent processing efficiency, provides outstanding beltpack battery life, and saves processing power. Bolero operates at twice the spectrum efficiency of other DECT-based systems, equating to up to 10 beltpacks per antenna (fully roaming) and up to 100 antennas per system.
Other features include Riedel’s exclusive Advanced DECT Receiver (ADR) technology to improve RF robustness by reducing sensitivity to multipath reflections, Near-Field Communication technology to facilitate “Touch&Go” beltpack registration, Bluetooth 4.1, and an ergonomic beltpack wrapped in high-impact plastic and rubber overmolds.
MediorNet MultiViewer App
Riedel’s MediorNet MultiViewer App is a virtual multiviewer app based on the MediorNet MicroN high-density media distribution hardware and designed to work within MediorNet networks. The MediorNet MultiViewer App leverages the benefits of a decentralized signal network by enabling multiviewer hardware to be placed anywhere it’s needed. The system can take in up to 18 sources from the network and output up to four multiviewer screens, and it can be configured through a convenient drag-and-drop editor.
MediorNet MicroN IP App
Building on MediorNet MicroN’s ability to extend functionality through the use of apps, Riedel’s MediorNet MicroN IP App creates a seamless bridge between MediorNet networks and IP networks. The MicroN IP supports SMPTE ST 2110-compliant video and audio as well as baseband video (SDI) and audio (MADI). At the same time, the device can be fully networked with all existing MediorNet products. MicroN IP use cases range from stand-alone SDI-to-IP conversion to a fully-networked system with multiple IP gateways and baseband I/Os.
