Riedel MediorNet to Provide Grass Valley Camera Integration

Riedel and Grass Valley showed the Camera Integration at IBC 2012

Riedel Communications, one of the leading manufacturers of real-time signal transport solutions for video, audio and communications, and Grass Valley, renowned manufacturer of HD camera systems, reveal the new MediorNet interface card for integrating Grass Valley cameras into MediorNet fiber networks at this year's IBC in Amsterdam.

The new MediorNet MN-GV-2 card allows the user to network Grass Valley 3G camera systems and base station including the LDK and the brand new LDX series via MediorNet. This provides a solution for routing bi-directional camera signals including all embedded audio and telemetry control data through the MediorNet fiber infrastructure. MediorNet’s network approach allows the free assignment of cameras to any Base Station / CCU within the network, providing unparalleled flexibility in set-ups and eliminating the need for re-wiring when production configurations change.

In addition, the network’s point-to-multipoint capability allows a camera video signal to be routed to several outputs. Ultimately, the Grass Valley camera system becomes an integrated part of the MediorNet backbone solution for signal distribution streamlining production scenarios, sports broadcasting applications and fixed installations.


The MediorNet MN-GV-2 card provides two Grass Valley 3G fiber ports that either connect to Grass Valley cameras or base stations. The card fits into MediorNet Modular Mainframes occupying a single card slot with at least two high-speed ports.
