RIEDEL AT ISE — AV.technology
Riedel Communications continues to push the boundaries of communications and audio signal distribution with innovative products launching at ISE including the standards agnostic Tango platform, the Smartpanel communications interface and a professional-grade Skype interface.
The Tango TNG-200 is Riedel’s first network-based platform supporting RAVENNA/AES67 and AVB standards. With its own dedicated intercom application, the platform can be turned into a flexible, cutting edge solution for a variety of communications scenarios. The unit is equipped with a high resolution, full color TFT display with intuitive front-panel controls to simplify the recall of presets and adjustment of audio levels. Along with powerful processing, the TNG-200 features two integrated Riedel digital partylines, two RAVENNA/AES67 and AVB-compatible ports, two Ethernet ports, one option slot, and redundant power supplies. The dedicated intercom application, “My First Riedel,” turns the Tango platform into an efficient intercom system that users can tailor according to needs. The asymmetric 40 x 80 matrix size allows for standard premium-quality stereo audio connections to panels.
The new RSP-2318 Smartpanel is the first control panel designed to serve as a powerful multifunctional user interface, Riedel says. The 1RU device boasts a unique feature set that includes three high resolution, sunlight-readable, multitouch colour displays, premium-quality stereo audio, a multilingual character set and 18 keys, and can be further expanded through apps. RAVENNA/AES67 and AVB connectivity are standard, with optional AES3 over cat/coax. Additional features include exchangeable headset connectors for mono or stereo applications, an integrated power supply, individual volume controls for each key, two USB ports, two Ethernet connectors, GPIO, audio I/O, an option slot, a removable gooseneck microphone, an SD card slot, and an HDMI output.
The STX-200 professional broadcast-grade interface brings Skype users worldwide into the professional broadcast environment. Licensed by Microsoft, the new product provides a single-box solution that enables broadcasters to bring live contributions from reporters and viewers into live programming, and avoids typical problems such as consumer PCs running common Skype clients, having to add scan and HDMI-to-SDI converters, or audio dropouts and menu pop-ups on the live feed. The 1RU box offers broadcast-quality HD-SDI and balanced XLR audio I/Os, and is packaged with professional Microsoft Skype TX software. Its broad feature set includes remote management and monitoring of Skype calls.
