Riedel Communications will showcase its latest innovations for communications and real-time signal distribution for a broad range of audiovisual applications, including live performance and broadcast at BroadcastAsia 2019, stand 4K3-01.
Riedel solutions — including the MediorNet decentralized network, Artist digital matrix intercom system, and Bolero wireless intercom — are used worldwide to handle events ranging from local events to global games.
Commenting on the company’s participation, Cameron O’Neill, Director, Riedel Asia-Pacific, “Every year, BroadcastAsia gives us a great opportunity to showcase our latest innovations in real-time signal distribution and networking. This year, we’re especially excited about the new stand-alone version of our industry-standard Bolero wireless intercom. With superior sound quality, outstanding RF performance, and simple interfacing, this new version will enable far more users to enjoy the amazing benefits of Bolero.”
At BroadcastAsia, Riedel will feature its new Bolero Standalone Application, a license-enabled upgrade for the company’s category-defining Bolero wireless intercom system that delivers several performance enhancements along with stand-alone capabilities. With the Bolero Standalone Application, antennas are daisy-chained in a line or a redundant ring via a low-latency, synchronized TDM network.
Bolero is a plug-and-play, with no IP configuration needed. A new external power supply can power up to five antennas, so power and data redundancies are easily achieved. A new single-RU, half-width external interface box, with six analog four-wires and three GPIOs, can be directly connected to any antenna and then patched into an existing intercom system. The system is easily configured via a web GUI internal to the antennas. Other new capabilities provided by the Bolero update include individual rotary programming, Bluetooth headset support, and a new beltpack QuickMute feature that allows users to set the volume of all channels to zero easily.
Riedel will also display its 1200 series SmartPanel (RSP-1232HL). The RSP-1232HL panel features multiple full-colour multitouch displays, 32 innovative hybrid-lever keys, the ability to leverage apps for multifunctionality, and features for smooth integration into today’s production workflows. As the latest of the company, SmartPanel app-driven user interfaces, the RSP-1232HL allows users to work the way they always have while realizing new possibilities.
MicroN is a distribution network device for Riedel’s MediorNet line of real-time media transport and management solutions. At BroadcastAsia2019, 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.
