Wuppertal, Germany (July 25, 2016)—Amp Visual TV's Millennium Signature 12 (MS12) HD/4K-capable OB van incudes a Riedel MediorNet real-time media network that replaces a traditional router infrastructure by providing video, audio, data and intercom transport, also delivering routing and processing capabilities.
Deployed in a fully redundant configuration built on a 10 Gb/s fiber network, 68 MicroN high-density signal interfaces, eight MetroN core routers, three MediorNet Compact Pros and two MediorNet Modular frames combine to serve as a decentralized matrix that transforms the MS12 into a unique OB van concept, with router elements situated in the physical location for any given workflow or production. Due to its modular design and mobile partition system, MS12 can turn into a two-in-one OB truck capable of conducting joint operations with two production areas, two audio mixers, two vision rooms and up to 42 modular workspaces.
"The MediorNet MicroN gives us much greater freedom in building sophisticated media infrastructures, from signal transport to full video router functionality and signal processing," said François Valadoux, chief technology officer at Amp Visual TV. "With major events approaching, we need a 100 percent reliable and flexible system that will remain future-proof as the market migrates toward a fully IP-based environment. Given the ambitious goal for our pioneering MS12 12 OB van, and especially the ability to address 4K productions, I have to admit that the system is impressive, and we are very proud of the result. Our 4K-ready Riedel systems are ready for the next big event."
Working with the MediorNet MetroN core fiber router, which provides the backbone capacity in this system architecture, MicroN features audio, video and data inputs and outputs, including 12 SD/HD/3G-SDI inputs and outputs, two MADI optical digital audio ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two sync reference I/Os and eight 10Gb MediorNet high-speed links.
MS12 made its debut last month for the 24 Hours of Le Mans
