NEP Sweden and France’s AMP Visual TV opt for Riedel MediorNet
Riedel Communications has sold MediorNet systems to NEP Sweden and France’s AMP Visual TV.
Both companies have added the real-time signal transport, processing, and routing technology to new UHD OB units.
NEP Sweden’s install, in UHD1, consists of eight MetroN core routers, a MediorNet Modular, 27 MicroN high-density media distribution network devices, and an additional 12 MicroN’s configured with Riedel’s MediorNet MultiViewer App.
According to Riedel, the “decentralized network conveniently allows signal I/O to be placed exactly where needed, enabling NEP Sweden to reduce cabling and overall system complexity.”
Two MediorNet Compact Pro frames are also available for use as stage boxes.
Jens Envall, technical director NEP Sweden, said: “We designed our new van to be a showcase for the latest in 4K and UHD broadcasting technologies, and Riedel’s MediorNet is no exception. MediorNet signal transport and routing system gives us new dimensions of flexibility, redundancy, and reliability, paving the way for the van to support any type of 4K production.
At the same time, AMP Visual TV has equipped its newest 4K HDR OB van, Millenium 6, with various Riedel equipment.
Included in the installation (pictured, above) is a MediorNet network supporting up to 26 wired and wireless cameras, plus a multiviewer monitor wall and Artist (wired) and Bolero (wireless) intercom systems.
“By basing our OB vans on MediorNet and other Riedel systems, we enjoy a great deal of freedom in creating the sophisticated media infrastructures critical to modern productions,” said François Valadoux, chief technology officer at AMP Visual TV.
“In our experience, Riedel gear delivers the performance we require and the flexibility we need to address the demands of working in 4K.”
A similar system is installed in AMP’s Millenium Signature 12 unit.
Both the NEP Sweden and the AMP deals were announced at NAB 2018.
