German broadcaster nobeo has integrated the Riedel MediorNet Compact realtime media network, Artist digital matrix intercom, and Performer digital partyline systems into its new “@-car,” a production vehicle tailored for direct internet broadcasts.
The @-car features a combination of broadcast equipment and specific IT components that together offer capacity for multicamera productions using up to six cameras. The unit complements larger OB vehicles, and also has individual capabilities meaning it can be used as a stand-alone unit for web TV, live streaming applications, and productions in which space is limited.
“We already used the Riedel Artist system with success in our 16-camera OB truck, so Riedel’s MediorNet was an easy choice for the @-car,” said Guido Amann, chief technology officer at nobeo. “In addition to meeting our specs for size, weight, and performance, the MediorNet system supports all required signals in a single 3RU box and enables fast configuration. It’s a perfect fit for talk show productions, live TV reports, sports events, press conferences, live webcasts, concert productions, or just for streaming.”
The MediorNet Compact PRO system installed in the @-car supports 12 HD-SDI inputs and four HD-SDI outputs. It is fitted with an Artist 32 digital matrix intercom system and Performer digital partyline, along with control panels, beltpacks, and professional headsets from Riedel. sono Studiotechnik, which designed and integrated the @-car, also provided nobeo with 100m of Riedel’s Pure XTR-Q fibre cabling.
