Riedel MediorNet to provide Grass Valley camera integration

Riedel Communications showcases the new MediorNet interface card for integrating Grass Valley cameras into MediorNet fibre networks at this year’s BVE in London. The new MediorNet MN-GV-2 card enables the user to network Grass Valley 3G camera systems and base station including the LDK and the brand new LDX series via MediorNet. This provides a solution for routing bi-directional camera signals including all embedded audio and telemetry control data through the MediorNet fibre infrastructure. MediorNet’s network approach allows the free assignment of cameras to any Base Station/CCU within the network, providing flexibility in set-ups and eliminating the need for re-wiring when production configurations change. "The Grass Valley interface card for MediorNet will make production scenarios a lot more flexible than it is now common leading to unparalleled remote production setups. But that is not all for BVE 2013 – we also want to put our extensive rental service we are providing from the UK for event such as the Summer Games last year into the markets’ focus", said Paul Rivens, general manager from Riedel Communications UK. In addition, the network’s point-to-multipoint capability allows a camera video signal to be routed to several outputs. Ultimately, the Grass Valley camera system becomes an integrated part of the MediorNet backbone solution for signal distribution streamlining production scenarios, sports broadcasting applications and fixed installations. The MediorNet MN-GV-2 card provides two Grass Valley 3G fibre ports that either connect to Grass Valley cameras or base stations. The card fits into MediorNet Modular Mainframes occupying a single card slot with at least two high-speed
