Riedel Intros Cost-Effective 50G Real-Time Media Network

Riedel Communications has unveiled the newest member of the MediorNet product family: MediorNet Compact  is intended to provide the flexibility of a true real-time media network, including integrated signal processing, at the cost of simple multiplexing point-to-point products.

With a network bandwidth of 50 Gbps, MediorNet Compact provides enough capacity for bidirectional transport of 12 HD-SDI signals, dozens of MADI streams or Gigabit Ethernet signals, and hundreds of audio channels or intercom ports, streamlining the infrastructure of any mobile, studio, or live-event application.

It provides connectivity for up to 12 3G/HD/SD-SDI signals, four AES ports, and two MADI interfaces, as well as four analog audio I/Os with high-quality microphone preamps and a dynamic range of 117 dB. Further, MediorNet Compact features an interface for Riedel RockNet digital audio networks, two DisplayPort outputs, three Gigabit Ethernet ports, and connections for serial data and GPIs. One Sync input and three Sync outputs complete the device’s interfaces.

MediorNet Compact is fully compatible with other MediorNet systems and supports all network topologies: ring, daisy chain, star, or any combination of these. The units can be equipped with various fiber connectors, ranging from install-friendly LC connectors to road-proof Neutrik opticalCONs with integrated WDM multiplexing technology.

MediorNet Compact comes in a 3RU housing and features integrated broadcast-quality signal-processing tools, such as Frame Store Synchronizer, Embedder/De-Embedder, Test Pattern Generator, On-Screen Display, and Timecode Insertion at every port.
