MediorNet MN-C-OPT-HDMI and MN-HDO-4IO Universal Video Cards

Riedel Communications has released a new universal video I/O card for the company's MediorNet Modular real-time network. Supporting a variety of small form-factor pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers, the MediorNet MN-C-OPT-HDMI and MN-HDO-4IO universal video cards enable the flexible configuration of MediorNet systems for bidirectional transport of analog composite video, HDMI, DVI, and optical or coaxial SDI signals.


Ideal for environments including theaters, house of worship, hotels, convention centers, and stadiums, the MediorNet bidirectional video card brings added flexibility to Riedel's MediorNet Modular system. Depending on the SFP transceivers installed, the card can provide a combination of either four HD (1.5G) or two 1080p (3G) bidirectional video signals or analog video, HDMI, DVI, or optical SDI video I/O. HDMI I/Os employ self-locking mini HDMI connectors.

Connect AVB

Riedel Communications has extended its line of AVB-capable products with the release of two new Connect AVB (Audio Video Bridging) interfaces, which enable the reliable real-time transport of analog or AES3/EBU digital audio over AVB-capable local area networks (LANs) with guaranteed quality of service.

The Connect AVB supports the transport of audio signals from equipment such as the Riedel Performer and Artist digital intercom systems on existing network infrastructures.

The Connect AVB modules can be used as throw-downs or with a Riedel Smart Rack system. The Connect AVB C8 offers eight AES connections on BNC. The device supports both bidirectional AES for intercom panels and unidirectional transport for broadcast AES. The Connect AVB A8 provides eight analog inputs and outputs on RJ45 connectors.

New Version 1.14 of MediorWorks Software

Riedel Communications has announced version 1.14 of its MediorWorks configuration, control, and monitoring software, which has been refined to enable even tighter integration between the company's real-time MediorNet and RockNet networks. This latest MediorWorks release will give users convenient access to all software configuration and control tools for both systems within a single application and window.

MediorWorks 1.14 not only consolidates control and configuration for Riedel real-time networks into a single interface, but also enables extended SNMP monitoring - all while streamlining network setup and reducing cabling requirements. The software release also supports new capabilities such as audio de-embedding for Grass Valley(TM) camera signals, making it simpler for users to manage a greater range of functions and have greater control over signal flow.
