Riedel VoIP first to adopt EBU standard
Riedel Communications says it is the first manufacturer providing VoIP intercom products compliant to the recently released EBU Tech 3347 standard.
The EBU Tech 3347 standard will allow for a standardised operation between interfaces of different vendors, thus changing the way large installation will be handled in the future. Interoperable intercom will also make it easier for broadcasters to communicate with each other at large-scale events (such as the annual Eurovision Song Contest, which is run by the EBU).
The EBU Tech 3347 standard makes use of technology already common in IP telephony and data communications. The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a signalling protocol for setting up, modifying and terminating voice or video sessions involving two or more participants on an IP network (Internet Engineering Task Force/IETF). SIP delivers the fast setup needed for interactive voice communications and is already widely utilised over both the Internet and telephony IP networks to support VoIP services.
