BVE 2015: First Riedel network platform
The Tango TNG-200, to be shown at the BVE London show in February, represents Riedel’s first network-based platform supporting AES67 and AVB standards. With its own dedicated intercom application, the platform can be turned into a flexible, cutting-edge solution for a variety of communications scenarios. The unit itself is equipped with a high-resolution, full-colour TFT display that ensures perfect readability at all times. Intuitive front-panel controls simplify the recall of presets and adjustment of audio levels.
Along with powerful processing capabilities, the Tango TNG-200 features two integrated Riedel digital partylines, two AES67- and AVB-compatible ports, two Ethernet ports, one option slot, and redundant power supplies. The dedicated intercom application, ‘My First Riedel,’ turns the Tango platform into an efficient intercom system that users can tailor according to their needs. The asymmetric 40 x 80 matrix size is another Riedel innovation, allowing for standard premium-quality stereo audio connections to panels.
The new RSP-2318 Smartpanel offers features and capabilities that will enrich the user experience and change the way broadcasters and AV professionals communicate. Claimed to be the world’s first control panel designed to serve as a powerful multifunctional user interface, the Riedel device boasts a feature set that includes three high-resolution, sunlight-readable, multitouch color displays; premium-quality stereo audio; a multilingual character set; and 18 keys in just 1 RU.
The STX-200 professional broadcast-grade interface brings any Skype user worldwide into the professional broadcast environment. Licensed by Microsoft, the new Riedel product meets broadcasters’ increasing need for a reliable single-box solution that enables them to bring live contributions from both reporters and viewers into live programming — all while avoiding typical problems such as consumer PCs running common Skype clients, scan and HDMI-to-SDI converters, or audio dropouts and menu pop-ups on the live feed.
Serving as more than a stand-alone solution, Riedel’s STX-200 integrates Skype into the intercom solution to enable flexible applications and workflows. The 1-RU box offers broadcast-quality HD-SDI and balanced XLR audio I/Os and is packaged with professional Microsoft Skype TX software. The solution’s broad feature set includes remote management and monitoring of Skype calls.
