The equipment includes Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom, its MediorNet Compact Pro media network and a RockNet digital audio network. The installation will support communications and enable fi bre interconnection and signal exchange among production units. Within the JSTV 4K OB truck, NDT installed three Artist 64 digital matrix intercom systems along with keypanels and user stations, using a Riedel RiFace universal radio interface to link wired communication systems with radio systems. Installed in the main OB vehicle, in a smaller OB truck, and in the venue, three MediorNet Compact Pro systems together form a fi bre ring that supports HD video transport, MADI audio, GigE, and communications during live productions. Liu Jun, product vice general manager at NDT said: “The quality, simplicity, and versatility of this fi ber-based communications solution will help JSTV to make the most of its unique 4K-capable unit.” KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 103 JULY 2015 | 21
