Riedel’s VOIP-108 G2 Matrix client card.Elmsford, NY (May 16, 2008)–Riedel Communications has introduced its VOIP-108 G2, an integrated Intercom-over-IP solution for the Artist Digital Matrix Intercom platform. It provides intercom interfacing to IP-based networks and allows matrix-to-matrix connections, matrix-to-control panel connections as well as the distribution of audio lines over IP.
The card converts eight Artist matrix ports into a compressed IP-stream and vice versa. Users can choose between a mode with an audio bandwidth of 6 kHz resulting in a data rate of less than 80 kBit/s (including panel data), and a low-traffic mode with 4 kHz audio bandwidth and a data rate of less than 40 kBit/s per channel (including panel data).
The VOIP-108 G2 client card communicates either with a VOIP-108 G2 client card in another Artist system, (e.g., for trunking), or with Riedel’s Connect IPx8 panel interface.
