BVE 2018: Riedel Debuts New Wireless Intercom System And Two Apps
Riedel will be showcasing new wireless intercom system plus two new apps, a multi-viewer app and a network-bridging app, at this year’s BYE Expo in London from Feb. 27 to March 1.
“BVE is a very important event for the broadcast industry in the U.K. and a great platform to meet with our partners and customers. We will be showcasing the capabilities of Bolero, our wireless intercom system, and I am really excited to be showing the MultiViewer and MicroN IP Apps that are sure to get some attention. We’re looking forward to another great show,” Paul Rivens, General Manager, U.K., Riedel Communications says.
Riedel Products at BVE 2018
Bolero Wireless Intercom System
Riedel’s Bolero is a game-changing new wireless intercom system in the license-free 1.9GHz frequency range. Bolero offers features and connectivity that can be applied three ways: as an exceptional wireless belt pack, as a wireless key panel, 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 handover capabilities.
Bolero uses a high-clarity 7KHz voice codec to provide higher speech intelligibility and more efficient RF spectrum use. The codec offers processing efficiency, provides outstanding belt pack battery life, and saves processing power. Bolero operates at twice the spectrum efficiency of other DECT-based systems, equating to up to 10 belt packs 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, Bluetooth 4.1, and an ergonomic beltpack wrapped in high-impact plastic and rubber overmolds.
MediorNet MultiViewer App
Riedel’s MediorNet MultiViewer App is a virtual multi-viewer app based on the MediorNet MicroN high-density media distribution hardware and designed to work within MediorNet networks. The MediorNet MultiViewer App leverages the benefits of a decentralized signal network by enabling multi-viewer hardware to be placed anywhere it’s needed. The system can take in up to 18 network sources and output up to four multi-viewer screens and configure it through a convenient drag-and-drop editor.
MediorNet MicroN IP App
Building on MediorNet MicroN’s ability to extend functionality through the use of apps, Riedel’s MediorNet MicroN IP App creates a seamless bridge between MediorNet networks and IP networks. The MicroN IP supports SMPTE ST 2110-compliant video and audio as well as baseband video (SDI) and audio (MADI). At the same time, the device can be fully networked with all existing MediorNet products. MicroN IP use cases range from stand-alone SDI-to-IP conversion to a fully-networked system with multiple IP gateways and baseband I/Os.
