SET EXPO 2014: Riedel to Showcase Live-Event Broadcasting Gear
Riedel Communications is set to show off some of the highlights of their product line at the upcoming SET Expo 2014 in São Paulo, Brazil on Aug. 24-27 (Stand E25). Among the solutions on display will be the MediorNet MetroN, the Virtual Key Panel App for Artist Intercom System, and integration with Sony cameras.
“With the world’s most popular sports events being hosted in Brazil, this is an exciting time to be showing our full range of video, audio, data, and communications network solutions at SET Expo 2014,” says Fabiano Botoni, International Sales Manager, Latin America, Riedel Communications. “The products and updates we showcase will demonstrate our commitment to complete and integrated solutions that are critical to fast-paced live event broadcasting.”
The MediorNet family of real-time networks has been expanded with the addition of the 2-RU large-scale MediorNet MetroN core router. In enabling Riedel’s acclaimed networked approach to signal distribution and routing, the new MediorNet MetroN provides a real-time routing capacity of 64x 10G ports. During SET Expo, Riedel will demonstrate how, with these capabilities, the new frame can function within a larger MediorNet installation, interfacing with other MediorNet frames via fiber.
Virtual Key Panel App for Artist Intercom System
Riedel’s Artist virtual key panels enable the use of smartphones and tablets (iOS, OS X®, and Android) as control panels in combination with any Artist digital matrix intercom system. These handheld devices can then provide the same functionality as full-featured, 12-key Artist control panels. The user operates the virtual control panel using the device’s touchscreen interface that can be configured via Riedel’s Director software.
Sony Camera Integration
During SET Expo, Riedel will showcase a new solution, co-developed with Sony, that gives MediorNet users access to the bidirectional video and camera control for Sony HD cameras via a SMPTE hybrid copper/fiber connection. With this solution, users can leverage MediorNet’s networked approach to signal acquisition and distribution to eliminate the re-patching associated with cameras changing locations during an event, thus simplifying cabling and saving time on set-up and strike.
