AMP VISUAL TV Expands OB Van Fleet Built On Riedel Technology

AMP VISUAL TV has completed yet another of its state-of-the-art OB vans, equipped with a Riedel MediorNet real-time media network and Riedel’s wired and wireless intercom systems, just in time for the Rugby World Cup in France.

With the launch of Millenium Signature 19, AMP VISUAL TV continues the expansion of an OB van fleet that leverages Riedel technology to facilitate flexible interconnection between mobile production trucks and an agile, fully modular approach to any kind of live production.

The unique TDM/IP ST 2110 hybrid capability of MediorNet networks has proved extremely valuable in supporting a smooth and safe transition to IP, and its distributed nature enables numerous advantages for AMP VISUAL TV, including plug-and-play interconnection of different production vehicles or control rooms in a powerful and highly agile operational workflow. To support flexible communications, AMP VISUAL TV has employed the latest Artist-1024 node from Riedel, as well as the company’s game-changing SmartPanel series concept, where a user interface can be turned not only into a comms panel but also a control panel and an audio monitoring panel. Providing reliable, high-quality wireless communications, Riedel’s Bolero intercom system likewise plays a critical role in daily operations.

AMP VISUAL TV’s implementation of Riedel technology extends beyond its OB vans, as the company’s Media Center and numerous TV studios rely on a redundant telecom backbone — also built on Riedel technology — around Paris. All of these resources will be vital as the company takes on some of the world’s largest, and most popular, sports competitions in the coming year.
