ISE 2017: New intercom and control options from Riedel
At ISE 2017 in Amsterdam on Stand 6-H152, Riedel will demonstrate how interconnected MicroN network devcies can be deployed to create a decentralised routing system that distributes signal load, takes advantage of flexible node placement, and eliminates any single point of failure to create a viable alternative to traditional monolithic routers. With on-board signal processing capabilities including frame synchronisation, embedding/de-embedding, and delays, a MicroN-based solution can handle SDI signals in a versatile and scalable routing solution.
The RSP-2318 SmartPanel offers features and capabilities that will enrich the user experience and change the way broadcasters and A/V professionals communicate. As the world’s first control panel designed to serve as a powerful multifunctional user interface, SmartPanel boasts a feature set that includes three high-resolution, sunlight-readable, multitouch colour displays; premium-quality audio; a multilingual character set; and 18 keys in just 1 RU. It offers AES67 and AVB connectivity as standard and AES3 over CAT or coax cable as an option.
The MediorNet Control App is the second app developed for Riedel’s SmartPanel interface. By equipping the SmartPanel with the new MediorNet Control App, users effectively consolidate two panels into one that provides full intercom and control functionality. With the Intercom and MediorNet Control Apps running in parallel, the SmartPanel serves as a robust and highly cost-effective A/V control system. As Riedel continues to develop apps for the SmartPanel, users will gain increasing capabilities that help to optimise signal transport and production workflows.
The Tango TNG-200 represents Riedel’s first network-based platform supporting the AES67/RAVENNA 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.
