Wuppertal, Germany (September 3, 2015)—AMP Visual TV has chosen Riedel’s MediorNet real-time signal network for a new fleet of DSNG production vans for its AMP Visual TV IXI subsidiary.
In addition to MediorNet’s real-time transport of video, audio and intercom signals, AMP Visual TV, headquartered in France, is using the solution’s decentralized video and audio routing and on-board signal processing capabilities. AMP Visual TV has been operating MediorNet networks on major productions such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Cannes Film Festival for more than five years.
AMP Visual TV has established a real-time network in which a MediorNet Modular frame is integrated into the DSNG vehicle to allow video and audio I/O and the generation of three Quad-Splits, two for the vehicle and one for the field. Two MediorNet Compact Pro frames complete the set-up over a redundant, self-healing fiber ring topology.
Two Riedel RockNet audio stage boxes interface with the MediorNet Compact Pro frames over a Cat5 loop, enabling audio distribution to and from the vehicle’s Yamaha console via a RockNet audio interface card. A Riedel Artist intercom matrix is also integrated into the setup, together with control panels for the vehicle, a commentary panel and Performer digital partyline beltpacks distributed over the MediorNet network. To simplify control of the Riedel infrastructure, AMP Visual TV chose the Ember+ protocol through a VSM system.
