CABSAT 2014: Riedel to Focus on Interoperability at Show

Riedel will show a number of products at CABSAT 2014, including the MediorNet Grass Valley Camera Interface Card for MediorNet Compact. The MN-C-OPT-GV-2 for MediorNet Compact allows the user to connect Grass Valley LDK and LDX cameras and their base stations directly to MediorNet. This provides a solution to route bidirectional camera signals, including all embedded audio and telemetry control data, through the MediorNet fiber infrastructure.

MediorNet’s network approach allows the free assignment of cameras to any base station or CCU within the network, providing unparalleled flexibility in setups and eliminating the need for rewiring when production needs change. The MN-C-OPT-GV-2 for MediorNet Compact fits into a MediorNet Compact expansion slot. It provides two Grass Valley ports that connect either to cameras or base stations. The MediorNet Grass Valley card supports all video and sync formats supported by Grass Valley LDK and LDX cameras.

“CABSAT provides us with a wonderful opportunity to meet with our partners and customers in the Middle East,” says Ahmed Magd El Din, International Sales Manager, Middle East, Riedel Communications. “Our theme for 2014 is the integration and interoperability of our different product families. On a single, real-time network, all of your video, audio, intercom, Ethernet, and data can travel together and be managed seamlessly from a single interface.”

MediorNet Now Supports Studer Consoles
Riedel will also present the MN-ST-AL-2, the company’s new MediorNet expansion card for Studer consoles. The MN-ST-AL-2 card provides two ports, each with redundant interfaces, for connecting Studer mixing consoles via the Studer A-Link protocol. In this way, the consoles become an integrated part of the entire signal distribution infrastructure. Users can gain up to 384 channels per connection and realize significant cost savings in cabling and maintenance while benefitting from MediorNet’s unparalleled flexibility and signal quality. Routing of the audio stream is handled by the user-friendly MediorWorks control and management software via drag-and-drop programming, which makes last-minute changes easy and intuitive. Additional routing adjustments can be performed via Pro-Bel commands or the new EMBER+ remote control protocol in MediorNet.

One MediorNet Modular frame equipped with A-Link interface cards becomes a cost-efficient audio router with 4,608 inputs and outputs in just two rack units. The card supports all Studer Vista 5 and Vista 9 consoles, as well as OnAir 3000 consoles.

RockNet Console Interfaces for SSL, Soundcraft Si, Studer, and Yamaha
Riedel provides RockNet expansion solutions with interface cards for Solid State Logic (SSL), Soundcraft, Studer, and Yamaha consoles. Next-generation firmware for the RockNet RN.334.MD MADI interface makes SSL mixing consoles an integrated part of the Riedel RockNet digital audio network, with complete remote control functionality over all gains and the flexibility of RockNet’s renowned independent gain feature. As a result, several mixing consoles can operate with the same mic preamps without affecting one another — a capability that greatly simplifies multiconsole and recording setups. Riedel’s RN.344.SI card enables integration with any Soundcraft Si Compact console, supporting 32 inputs and 32 outputs to the RockNet system. The interface enables remote control of any RockNet mic preamp and also offers the benefit of RockNet’s independent gain feature. The RN.343.VI card ensures compatibility with select Soundcraft and Studer consoles while the RN.341.MY works with select Yamaha consoles and host devices.
