Riedel MicroN for TNDV
"Because we work on a different project in a different city each week, we need to be prepared to accommodate continually changing requests and evolving production requirements," said Nic Dugger, TNDV Founder and Owner. "We've seen how well Riedel's MediorNet solutions support OB vans all around the world, and we decided to take advantage of this technology for ourselves — and our clients. In addition to ensuring high reliability and providing flexible configuration options, the MicroN boasts an appealing price tag and exceptional support from Riedel. When we take Exclamation out on the road, we can be even more flexible and provide our clients with even more options for making their sports, entertainment, and corporate events a success."
In a stand-alone deployment, MicroN can operate as a 12 x 12 router and perform signal-processing functions including audio embedding/de-embedding with MADI sample rate conversion and delay, video frame sync/frame store with delay, and test pattern generation — all in just a single RU and with redundant power built in. In a point-to-point deployment, multiple paired MicroN units can provide all of these capabilities plus support for up to 12 SD/HD/3G-SDI inputs and 12 SD/HD/3G-SDI outputs, two MADI optical digital audio ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two sync reference I/Os, and eight 10G MediorNet Links (4.25 capable). Interconnecting MicroN nodes in a meshed fashion leads to a scalable, decentralized video-routing solution. In each case, MicroN is an IP-ready, futureproof solution that has already been used in 4K productions.
"MediorNet is a production truck staple in many markets, and TNDV's adoption of the solution is certain to drive further awareness and adoption here in the U.S.," said Ryhaan Williams, Vice President Sales, Northeast and North Central U.S. at Riedel Communications. "The power and flexibility of our MicroN units bring enormous benefits to any remote production in which agility and efficiency are essential."
