NAB NY 2017: Riedel Rolls Out Bolero Wireless Intercom, MediorNet MultiViewer App, and More
Riedel will be on hand at NAB New York with several solutions, including the Bolero Artist-integrated wireless intercom system, MediorNet MultiViewer App, MicroN. In addition, ASL Intercom Products will be on display at AES New York 2017.
Bolero Artist-Integrated Wireless Intercom System
Riedel’s Bolero is a game-changing 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 — in an industry first — as a walkie-talkie radio.
The system runs over a standards-based AES67 IP network, and its decentralized antennas connect to AES67 switches and then to Artist frames equipped with AES67 client cards to provide a fully integrated, point-to-point intercom ecosystem with seamless roaming capabilities.
Bolero uses a high-clarity 7KHz voice codec to provide higher speech intelligibility and more efficient use of RF spectrum. The codec offers excellent processing efficiency, provides outstanding beltpack battery life, and saves processing power. Bolero operates at twice the spectrum efficiency of other DECT-based systems, equating to up to 10 beltpacks per antenna (fully roaming) and up to 100 antennas per system.
Other features include Riedel’s exclusive Advanced DECT Receiver (ADR) technology to improve RF robustness by reducing sensitivity to multipath reflections, near-field communication technology to facilitate “Touch&Go” beltpack registration, support for Bluetooth 4.1, and an ergonomic beltpack.
Bolero will also be on display at the AES New York 2017 show in ASL Intercom’s booth, 953.
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 leverages the benefits of a decentralized signal network by enabling multiviewer hardware to be placed anywhere it’s needed. The system can take in up to 18 sources from the network and output up to four multiviewer screens, and it can be configured through a convenient drag-and drop editor.
MediorNet MicroN as a Decentralized Router
MicroN is a high-density distribution network device for Riedel’s MediorNet line of real-time media transport and management solutions. At the 2017 NAB Show New York, Riedel will demonstrate how interconnected MicroN units can be deployed to create a decentralized routing system that distributes signal load, takes advantage of flexible node placement, and eliminates any single point of failure to create a viable alternative to traditional monolithic routers.
With on-board signal processing capabilities including frame synchronization, embedding/de-embedding, and delays, a MicroN-based solution can handle SDI signals in a very powerful, tremendously versatile, and highly scalable routing solution.
