Riedel Brings New Artist Intercom To InfoComm 2019

At the InfoComm 2019 Show in Orlando, Riedel Communications will spotlight its Artist-1024, the newest addition to the company’s intercom ecosystem. This new node complements the Artist family with 1024 ports in just 2 RU and a focus on IP installations with its full SMPTE ST 2110-30/31 (AES67) compliance.

The Riedel Artist-1024 also introduces a range of technical innovations centered on software-definable Universal Interface Cards (UIC). This interface card combines networking, mixing, and management, and it can be configured to act either as an AES67 or MADI subscriber card, or as an Artist fiber/router/processor card. Changing the connectivity type is as easy as reconfiguring the UIC with the click of a button in Riedel’s Director configuration software.

The Artist-1024 frame provides ten bays for UICs, with two being reserved solely for routing and networking UICs. The remaining eight bays can be equipped with UICs of various configurations to provide subscriber connectivity. The integral mixer on each subscriber card can be scaled from 8 to 128 ports per card and can access all 1024 ports of the Artist backbone. In addition, four expansion slots are available for various GPIO or synchronization applications.

Multiple redundancy schemes and flexible licensing round out the 1024’s feature set.
