IBC 2013 to witness European debut of Riedel Grass Valley interface
The annual Amsterdam gathering will see Riedel Communications undertake the European premiere of the Grass Valley Camera Interface Card for MediorNet Compact real-time networks. The new MN-C-OPT-GV-2 for MediorNet Compact allows the user to connect Grass Valley LDK and LDX cameras and their base stations directly to MediorNet. This provides a solution to route 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 or CCU within the network, providing unparalleled flexibility in set-ups and eliminating the need for re-wiring when production needs change. The MN-C-OPT-GV-2 for MediorNet Compact fits into a MediorNet Compact expansion slot. It provides two Grass Valley ports that connect either to cameras or base stations. The MediorNet Grass Valley card supports all video and sync formats supported by Grass Valley LDK and LDX cameras.
Also on show, and supporting a variety of small form-factor pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers, the MediorNet MN-C-OPT-HDMI and MN-HDO-4IO universal video cards enable the flexible configuration of MediorNet systems for bidirectional transport of analogue composite video, HDMI, DVI, and optical or coaxial SDI signals. Ideal for environments including theatres, houses of worship, hotels, convention centers and stadiums, the MediorNet bidirectional video cards bring added versatility to Riedel’s MediorNet Modular system. Depending on the SFP transceivers installed, each card can provide a combination of either four HD (1.5G) or two 1080p (3G) bidirectional video signals or analogue video, HDMI, DVI, or optical SDI video I/O. HDMI I/Os employ self-locking mini HDMI connectors.
Other products on display will include MediorNet Modular and MediorNet Compact, MediorWorks software, Performer/Artist/Acrobat communications systems, and RockNet Fiber Optic Converters and console interfaces.
