Wuppertal, Germany (October 26, 2017)—European live production and outside broadcasting services provider Bildquadrat Videoproductions has upgraded the Riedel MediorNet in its OB van and has installed Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom system.
The truck was launched in 2015 with a signal transport backbone powered by Riedel’s MediorNet real-time network, including a MediorNet MicroN 80G media distribution interface. With the upgrade, Bildquadrat has expanded the integrated signal transport, routing, and processing capabilities of MediorNet and enhanced communications with the installation of a Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom system.
Bildquadrat’s van features a compact, modular design that can be adapted for mobile productions of all types and sizes. The onboard MediorNet and MicroN devices are connected over a 10 Gbps optical fiber network to create a fully redundant, decentralized routing matrix.
Bildquadrat has also built MediorNet frames into mobile stageboxes, giving the production team the flexibility to deploy the solution’s signal processing capabilities anywhere on the set. Each stagebox is preconfigured in the van and equipped with microphone and in-ear systems, saving time and removing on-set integration hassles.
With the upgrade, Bildquadrat has expanded the MediorNet decentralized routing matrix with seven MicroN high-density media distribution network devices that can be deployed in modular fashion for a variety of uses. One of the MicroN devices operates as a dedicated multiviewer using the MediorNet MultiViewer App.
