Commentary Goes Intercom - Digital Partyline Intercoms via AES
Riedel Artist CCP-1116 Commentary Control Panel
The Riedel Artist CCP-1116 is the next generation commentary unit for two commentators with integrated intercom functionality for Artist Digital Matrix Intercom systems. The unit provides up to two commentary positions with high-quality microphone pre-amps as well as all the intercom features from the renowned Artist 1100 series intercom panels.
Built in a compact housing and connected via a single CAT5 or COAX cable, the CCP-1116 is fast and easy to install. A stand-alone/emergency mode as well as a redundant power supply solution ensures maximum reliability.
The CCP-1116 features a high-quality microphone preamp with 48V phantom power, a +6dBu Limiter and a level meter per commentator. Large "On Air" and "Cough/Mic Mute" keys with LED indicators make operation quick and easy – even under difficult lighting conditions. An additional programmable and remote-controllable mono line-input offers a connection point to feed in local playback sources. The monitor mix section features three source level controls plus side-tone and master level controls. All sources are routable for split-ear operation of the commentary headphones.
The intercom section features 16 freely assignable control keys with individual level controls. To allow for two-user operation the control panel keys can be split into two. Following Riedel’s intuitive concept of integrated displays in the panel keys, the 1100 series features the next generation of high-res color OLEDs. With 65,000 colors and a resolution of 140 dpi these new displays provide excellent readability and are able to show up to eight highly detailed characters of up to 24x24 pixels. Definable marker colors for the keys complete the labeling options and provide instant function identification and signalization, e.g. for incoming calls.
Riedel's Performer C22 system Interface
The Performer C22 system interface converts two 2-channel CAT5 matrix ports to two phantom powered digital beltpack lines and vice versa, allowing seamless integration of digital partylines with matrix intercom systems. In addition, the interface can also be used in any application where you would like to route digital partyline intercoms via an AES digital audio infrastructure such as MediorNet, Artist or any 3rd party AES audio router solution supporting transparent AES user bit transport.
The device provides an internal matrix, allowing to either operate the two ports independently as two independent partylines or to build one distributed partyline via AES. The beltpacks are connected to the ¼ 19”/1 RU unit via standard 3-pin XLR cables. The Performer C22 can power daisy-chains of up to nine beltpacks, split-boxes or desktop speaker stations per line.
