Intercom networking, signal distribution gear to be shown

LAS VEGAS — Riedel Communications will come to the 2018 InfoComm show — to be held in Las Vegas from June 6–8 — with new systems for real-time intercom signal distribution and networking.

At the top of the list is the Bolero wireless intercom system, a standalone solution that allow for antennas to be daisy-chained to each other in a line or a redundant ring via a low-latency, synchronized TDM network. New plug-and-play functionality does not require any sort of IP configuration. An external power supply can power up to five antennas so that power and data redundancies are easily achieved, the company said. A new single-RU, half-width external interface box, with six analog 4-wires and three GPIOs, can be directly connected to any antenna and then patched into an existing intercom system.

The system is configured via a web GUI. Other new capabilities include individual rotary programming, Bluetooth headset support, and a new beltpack QuickMute feature that allows users to set the volume of all channels to zero.

The company will also show off its new 1200 series SmartPanel (RSP-1232HL), which features multiple full-color multitouch displays, 32 hybrid-lever keys and the ability to leverage apps for multifunctionality. Each of the RSP-1232HL’s 32 lever keys features an integrated rotary encoder that provides control over parameters in the same location as the key. Users are able to choose custom colors for either the key labels or the LED rings around each key.

The MediorNet MicroN IP app will also make an appearance. This app — which supports SMPTE ST 2110/AES67-compliant video and audio as well as baseband video and audio — creates a bridge between the company's MediorNet real-time signal routing network and IP networks. The app includes support for up to four MediorNet high-speed links, up to four SMPTE 2110-20 inputs and outputs, four baseband 3G-SDI signals and eight 3G-SDI outputs.
