NAB. The Riedel company took advantage of the 2019 version of the NAB Show for two special moments: celebrating the 10 number anniversary of the Meridionet system, which has more than 5.000 customers around the world, and the launch of its new intercom system.
Its CEO, Thomas Riedel, was in charge of telling the details of the new version of its Artis 1024 solution, a communications node that provides the advanced features and capabilities that customers have requested, with the highest port density and total compliance. of SMPTE 2110-30 / 31 (AES67).
It has 1024 non-blocking ports in only 2 RU, which significantly reduces rack space requirements. This latest addition to the Artist ecosystem presents a range of technical innovations focused on Universal Interface Cards (UIC) definable by software.
This completely new type of interface card combines network, mixing and administration, and can be configured to act as an AES67 or MADI subscriber card, or as a fiber / router / processor Artist card. Changing the type of connectivity is as easy as reconfiguring the UIC with the click of a button in the Director configuration software.
Artist-1024 also introduces a new flexible and easy-to-use licensing scheme with frame-level licenses instead of connectivity licenses. Each node starts with a Virtual Artist Matrix (VAM) license, which includes a defined number of ports (from 16 to 1.024) that can be freely distributed through the node's subscriber cards.
