Integrated media signal distribution

21 March 2012

Manufacturer of realtime networks for video, audio and communications Riedel Communications presents MediorNet Compact and the Connect AVB solution at this year’s NAB. MediorNet Compact is the cost effective and easy-to-use entry into the Riedel MediorNet world of integrated media signal distribution and processing. It provides the flexibility of a true realtime media network, including integrated signal processing, at the cost of simple multiplexing point-to-point products. With a network bandwidth of 50 Gbps MediorNet Compact provides enough capacity for bi-directional transport of 12 HD-SDI signals, dozens of MADI streams or Gbit-Ethernet signals and hundreds of audio channels or intercom ports – ideal for streamlining the infrastructure of any mobile, studio or live event application. MediorNet Compact provides connectivity for up to 12 3G/HD/SD-SDI signals, four AES ports, two MADI interfaces as well as four analogue audio I/Os with high-quality microphone preamps and a dynamic range of 117 dB. Furthermore, MediorNet Compact features an interface for Riedel RockNet digital audio networks, two DisplayPort outputs, three Gbit Ethernet ports and connections for serial data and GPIs. One Sync input and three Sync outputs complete the device’s interfaces. MediorNet Compact is fully compatible with other MediorNet systems and supports all network topologies including ring, daisy-chain, star or any combination of these. The units can be equipped with various fibre connectors, ranging from install-friendly LC connectors to road-proof Neutrik opticalCONs with integrated WDM multiplexing technology. MediorNet Compact comes in a 3RU housing and features integrated broadcast-quality signal processing tools such as Frame Store Synchronizer, Embedder/De-Embedder, Test Pattern Generator, On-Screen Display and Timecode Insertion at every port. Connecting intercom panels over an IP-based LAN environments has been the dream of many system planners. But issues inherent to IP like latency, reliability and missing synchronisation prevented them from doing so. Riedel’s AVB product line overcomes these issues and provides a realtime solution for professional intercom users. This allows for new approaches in system and facility design providing significant savings in infrastructure investments. The Riedel suite of AVB products includes the AVB-108 G2 Client, the Connect AVB and Connect AVBx8 panel interfaces. They offer intercom applications over LAN infrastructures such as matrix-to-control panel connections, audio distribution, matrix-to-matrix trunking connections or distribution of digital partylines. C4337
