Amsterdam, Netherlands (September 13, 2012)—SSL demonstrated compatibility between its consoles and Riedel RockNet and MediorNet systems at IBC 2012.
Collaborative development between Riedel and SSL has resulted in SSL C100 HDS and C10 HD digital broadcast consoles that can now connect to Riedel RockNet audio distribution networks and MediorNet fibre-optic transport, routing and conversion networks.
Via Riedel's RN334.MD MADI interface, SSL consoles can remotely control mic gain, phantom power and pad settings for Riedel RN series audio interfaces connected anywhere on a RockNet network. In addition SSL's own MORSE Stagebox and Alpha-Link I/O units can also be connected via MADI to Riedel's MediorNet networks with full remote control capability maintained.
"SSL and Riedel share a significant customer base across the world, and these developments make it possible for our users to employ our consoles and distribution technology in truly integrated systems," says Niall Feldman, director of new products for SSL. "Riedel is a highly respected, professional and innovative manufacturer, and there is considerable synergy between our technologies, so it is a great pleasure to continue to bring the relationship between our two companies ever closer together."
"We're proud to welcome Solid Stage Logic to the family of RockNet and MediorNet compatible console systems," adds Henning Kaltheuner, head of product management at Riedel Communications. "This way, SSL will be able to network their consoles and stage boxes via MediorNet and also combine both with consoles and stage boxes from other RockNet compatible brands. As a result, SSL's clients realize a streamlined infrastructure and maximum flexibility."
