RTS IP Offering Grows With ODIN

RTS is using the 2018 NAB Show to highlight the continuing development of its IP intercom product line. The company’s latest product to be based on the technology is the ODIN OMNEO digital matrix, a single rack unit that is able to work with RTS’ other recent IP introductions, including the ROAMEO wireless system and KP-Series panels, as well as existing analogue key panels.

Based on RTS' OMNEO networking platform, which uses Dante audio over IP (AoIP) for media transport and OCA (Open Control Architecture) to control operations, ODIN can be integrated to form large-scale communication installations. It is able to be built up from an initial 16-ports to 128-ports. By using an optical Inter-Frame Link connection, eight ODIN units can produce up to 1024 ports.

In the broadcast market ODIN is aimed at both OB trucks and TV studio control rooms where space is at a premium and budgets tight. As well as featuring Dante, it is compatible with both the AES67 AoIP interoperability and AES70 open control architecture standards. Operation, set-up and configuration of ODIN is carried out through a colour graphical interface. RTS has updated the AZedit and IPedit software programs to run more advanced configuring functions.

As well as connections for OMNEO and IP, based on RJ45 circuits, ODIN is also able to work with analogue two and four-wire intercom systems. In addition it can interconnect with DECT-based ROAMEO wireless belt packs and DK-Series key panels.
