IBC 2017: Riedel to hit IBC with MediorNet MicroN IP app
The concept of decentralised, hybrid routing and signal transport with the MediorNet real time network is a long running theme for Riedel at IBC and this year is no different. This approach, claimed the company, provides a proven, futureproof, and risk free transition between baseband and IP workflows while putting signal I/O exactly where needed and cutting down on system cost and complexity.
MediorNet MicroN, the newest member of the MediorNet family, is software enabled hardware that can play multiple roles in a facility, from simple links to decentralised routing to multiviewers. IBC will see the launch of another app for MicroN, the new IP App. The MicroN IP app is based on SMPTE2110 for the transport of video and audio data and represents a bridge between our MediorNet networks and IP networks. This bridge will include NMOS IS-04 for device discovery and registration and NMOS IS-05 for connection management of the IP streams.
Building on MediorNet MicroN’s ability to extend functionality through the use of apps, IBC 2017 will see the global launch of the MicroN IP app, which creates a seamless bridge between MediorNet and future IP networks.
The MicroN IP system supports SMPTE 2110/AES67-compliant video and audio as well as baseband video (SDI) and audio (MADI). In combination with all the built-in glue features including audio embedding/de-embedding, frame sync, sample rate conversion, audio/video delay, signal routing, and on-screen display, the MicroN IP app turns the device into a universal tool for all of your IP interfacing needs. At the same time, the device can be fully networked with all existing MediorNet products.
The MicroN IP app includes support for up to 4 SMPTE 2110-20 inputs and outputs plus 4 baseband 3G-SDI signals and 8 3G-SDI outputs (4 are dedicated to monitoring SMPTE 2110-20 streams).
Also supported are AES67 audio, 2 optical MADI ports, and sync IO. MicroN IP also supports NMOS Device Discovery/Registration and Connection Management or manual configuration for non-NMOS devices.
MicroN IP uses range from a stand-alone SDI to IP conversion to a fully networked system with numerous different IP gateway and baseband IOs.
Riedel’s MediorNet MultiViewer app is an all-new virtual multiviewer app based on the MediorNet MicroN high-density media distribution hardware and designed to work within the MediorNet network. The MediorNet MultiViewer app delivers the benefits of a decentralised signal network by enabling multiviewer hardware to be placed anywhere it’s needed, and it leverages the network for sources and removes the extra layer of gear and complexity that would be required by a large monolithic router.
Making its IBC debut, Riedel’s award-winning Bolero [pictured] is a new wireless intercom solution. An expandable, full-roaming, DECT-based intercom system in the license-free 1.9GHz frequency range, Bolero is fully integrated into Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom platform. Bolero offers a rich set of features and connectivity that can be applied three ways: as an exceptional wireless beltpack, as a wireless keypanel, and as a walkie-talkie radio.
