Making its debut in Asia, Riedel’s Bolero is a new wireless intercom solution. An expandable, full-roaming, DECT-based intercom system in the licence-free 1.9 GHz frequency range, Bolero is fully integrated into Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom platform. Bolero’s features and connectivity can be applied three ways: as an exceptional wireless beltpack, as a wireless keypanel, and in an industry first as a walkie-talkie radio.
The system runs over a standards-based AES67 IP network, and its decentralised antennas connect to AES67 switches and then to Artist frames equipped with AES67 client cards to provide a fully integrated point-to-point intercom ecosystem with seamless roaming capabilities.
Bolero uses a high-clarity 7 KHz voice codec to provide higher speech intelligibility and more efficient use of RF spectrum. The codec offers excellent processing efficiency, provides outstanding beltpack battery life, and saves processing power. Bolero operates at twice the spectrum efficiency of other DECT-based systems, equating to up to 10 beltpacks per antenna (fully roaming) and up to 100 antennas per system.
Other features include Riedel’s exclusive Advanced DECT Receiver (ADR) technology to improve RF robustness by reducing sensitivity to multipath reflections, Near-Field Communication technology to facilitate “Touch & Go” beltpack registration, Bluetooth 4.1, and an ergonomic beltpack wrapped in high-impact plastic and rubber overmolds.
Also making its Asian debut, Riedel’s MediorNet MultiViewer App is an all-new virtual multiviewer app based on MediorNet MicroN high-density media distribution hardware and designed to work within the MediorNet network. The MediorNet MultiViewer App delivers the benefits of a decentralized signal network by enabling multiviewer hardware to be placed anywhere it’s needed, and it leverages the network for sources and removes the extra layer of gear and complexity that would be required by a large monolithic router.
NEW: DSP-2312 Desktop SmartPanel
The Desktop SmartPanel is the the smallest full-functioning desktop panel available on the market and the newest member of the Riedel SmartPanel family of intelligent user interfaces. This all-new desktop edition offers all the power and flexibility of the original SmartPanel in a small, elegant, ergonomic, and low-profile device.
The desktop SmartPanel features 12 keys, two TFT touch-screen LCD displays, and an integrated power supply. On-board AES67, AVB, and AES3 connectivity allows for direct connections to Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom systems without the need for expansion modules. The DSP-2312 also boasts two exchangeable headset XLR connections, high-quality mic pre-amps, three GPIOs, two network connections, a four-wire connection, and support for Riedel SmartPanel Apps including the Intercom Basic and Plus Apps as well as the MediorNet Control and HandsFree Apps. The new SmartPanel also has unique mounting options including 1/4-20 threads for use with tripods or Magic Arms, providing an entirely new solution for jib operators or for use in places with no counter space.
ASL Intercom Products at BroadcastAsia2017
A Riedel company since 2016, ASL Intercom will display its latest products, Enchorus and Flexus, at the Riedel stand. ASL Enchorus is a reliable Dante format converter for modern A/V professionals. Flexus is a digital partyline system that works in a daisy chain or Ethernet-based configuration, or both.
Cameron O’Neill, Director, APAC, at Riedel Communications, will discuss the long- and short-term challenges of the move to IP infrastructures for broadcasters. Topics include the idea of transitioning to a hybrid SDI-IP solution as an interim step, tips to ensure smooth IP integrations into existing infrastructures, and insight into issues such as latency, synchronization, and efficient use of bandwidth.
The keynote will be held in the Broadcasting Facilities on May 23 at 11:15 a.m.
