With its introduction of the MediorNet Control App for the company’s RSP-2318 SmartPanel multifunctional user interface, Riedel Communications claimed it has closed the loop between communications and real-time media routing.
In addition to linking the SmartPanel directly into the Riedel MediorNet media network as a dedicated control panel, the new MediorNet Control App, in combination with the existing Intercom Apps, gives users simultaneous intercom functionality, enabling them to route, control and communicate all at once using a single 1RU system.
The MediorNet Control App is the second app family developed for Riedel’s SmartPanel interface, allowing users to consolidate two panels into one that provides full intercom and control functionality at all times.
It was used extensively by Fox Sports Mexico in Rio this summer and has been adopted by Sky Germany for use in seven new satellite newsgathering vans.
“With the release of the MediorNet Control App, our SmartPanel has grown into much more than an intercom solution; it now facilitates direct communication with the MediorNet network and control of devices within it,” said Dr Karsten Konrad, product manager at Riedel.
“Eliminating the need for a separate control system, this solution allows users to realise valuable routing and communications functionality while saving both rack space and money.”
