IBC 2017: Riedel to discuss MediorNet implementations at IBC
Riedel is to be at IBC this year discussing its work with European provider of broadcast production services, Designed and Built by Broadcast Solutions, which has installed Riedel’s MediorNet real time media network on board Alphaline A12. Alphaline A12 is a new HD outside broadcast (OB) van commissioned by Slovakian television network, Televízia Markíza.
Working in tandem with Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom solution, MediorNet provides a decentralised and redundant communications and signal routing backbone for Televízia Markíza’s line up of live sports and entertainment broadcasts. Riedel is talking about the installation at IBC this year.
“MediorNet’s decentralised routing approach is perfect for live broadcasting. Not only does it reduce the single points of failure, but it also makes things simpler and more efficient by placing physical I/O closer to where it’s needed while also reducing copper,” said Rainer Kampe, Broadcast Solutions CTO. “Alphaline A12 is our first OB deployment of MediorNet, and we know we’ve made the right choice to deliver the bulletproof communications capabilities Televízia Markíza requires.”
Alphaline A12 is capable of supporting 14-plus cameras in productions, such as Televízia Markíza’s popular “Let’s Dance” reality show, and also provides critical backup support for the network’s studio programming. Broadcast Solutions worked with Slovakian systems integrator Elektronika to design and install the van’s MediorNet network, consisting of a MetroN core router, 16 MicroN high-density media distribution network devices, and four MediorNet Compact stage boxes. An Artist 128 intercom system with 14 keypanels provides flexible high quality communications.
Riedel will be exhibiting on stand 10.A31.
