Riedel MediorNet & RockNet To Debut At ISE 2011
Riedel Communications will present the fiber-based signal transport solution MediorNet and the digital audio network RockNet at this year’s ISE. Visit Riedel Communications at the ISE 2011 in Hall 11 at Stand C41.
MediorNet is not just a simple point-to-point link but offers a real network solution. This includes signal routing, allowing the user to send any incoming signal to any output or even to multiple outputs by just a mouse-click or, even more conveniently, by a router control system. Each MediorNet mainframe provides a router for 32×32 720p/1080i signals, 160×160 SD-SDI signals, 27,000×27,000 AES signals or any combination of these.
MediorNet also includes broadcast-quality processing and conversion on board. These features are software-based so they can easily be expanded in the future without any changes to the hardware. Ultimately this will eliminate the need for external devices.
RockNet is a real-time, low latency audio distribution network tailored to tour and installed sound applications. RockNet provides a universal solution to almost any audio distribution challenge and behaves very much like a traditional analog active split system. It conveys 160 24bit/48kHz audio channels counter-rotating on a single CAT5 cable. Based on a redundant ring topology, RockNet forms a self-healing network with no loss of audio in case of a connection fault between two devices. RockNet products’ ruggedized steel enclosures resemble the look and feel of a modular stagebox. All devices feature locking IEC connectors for the redundant power supplies. All other connectors are entirely gold-plated and the circuit design is streamlined to ultra low noise and minimum distortion to meet the highest demands in audio quality. RockNet offers a dynamic range of up to 118 dB and guarantees a high signal-to-noise-ratio as well as a minimum of distortion.
