Riedel Communications, the provider of real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, will showcase a range of processing efficiency products at BroadcastAsia 2017.
Riedel's Bolero, making its debut in Asia, is a new wireless intercom solution. An expandable, full-roaming, DECT-based intercom system in the license-free 1.9 GHz frequency range, Bolero is fully integrated into Riedel's Artist digital matrix intercom platform.
Bolero offers a set of features and connectivity that can be applied in three ways: as an exceptional wireless beltpack, as a wireless keypanel, and as a walkie-talkie radio.
The system runs over a standards-based AES67 IP network, and its decentralised 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.
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 a beltpack wrapped in high-impact plastic and rubber overmolds.
Riedel's MediorNet MultiViewer app, also making its Asian debut, is an all-new virtual multiviewer app based on 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.
The Desktop SmartPanel is the newest member of the Riedel SmartPanel family of intelligent user interfaces. This all-new desktop edition offers power and flexibility of the original SmartPanel in a small, elegant, ergonomic, and low-profile device.
The desktop SmartPanel features 12 keys, two TFT touch-screen LCD displays, and an integrated power supply. On-board AES67, AVB, and AES3 connectivity allows for direct connections to Riedel's Artist digital matrix intercom systems without the need for expansion modules.
The DSP-2312 also boasts two exchangeable headset XLR connections, high-quality mic pre-amps, three GPIOs, two network connections, a four-wire connection, and support for Riedel SmartPanel Apps — including the Intercom Basic and Plus Apps as well as the MediorNet Control and HandsFree Apps.
ASL Intercom, a Riedel company since 2016, will display its latest products, Enchorus and Flexus, at the Riedel stand. ASL Enchorus is a reliable Dante format converter for modern A/V professionals. Flexus is a digital partyline system that works in a daisy chain or Ethernet-based configuration, or both.
Cameron O'Neill, director, APAC, Riedel Communications, said: "BroadcastAsia is a great show for us; the attendance has been growing strongly each year. After the success of bringing the distributed router story to the show last year, I'm excited to be exhibiting the Multiviewer this year.
"It's a great addition to any router. Bolero, our new wireless offering, is sure to turn some heads, and I look forward to hearing insights from industry leaders at our Teatime TechTalk. All in all, I'm proud to be a part of our continued investment in Asia, and I'm anticipating another great show."
