International Congress Center Munich Installs Riedel RockNet Audio Network
The International Congress Center Munich equipped five of their conference halls and the master control room with a comprehensive Riedel RockNet audio network. Riedel delivered an extensive installation of various input and output modules, fiber converters, and expansion cards for digital Yamaha mixing consoles. The project was managed by system integrator Thomann Audio Professionell.
The goal of the installation was to establish independent audio networks for each of the five congress rooms that are interconnected to a larger audio network. The installation is equipped with 38 analog and digital I/Os and 25 expansion cards for Yamaha mixing consoles. Each network consists of a FOH, a stage, a play out area including a DSP rack and a mobile mixing facility. The networking between the devices and the separate networks is realized via ICM’s already installed fiber network and newly installed fiber cabling. A total of 40 fiber converters help to bridge the large distances within the ICM.
All five RockNet networks are connected to the master control room, allowing the whole audio network to be controlled from a centralized point as well as independent of each other.
“Maximum flexibility was the most important factor for us. RockNet allows for a large variety of setups and applications without the need to rewire the whole system,” says Christian Müller, Chief Technician at ICM.
