AMP Visual TV Chooses Riedel for New DSNG Production Vans

Production company AMP Visual TV, with one of the most extensive European fleets of OB vans and nearly 20 studios in the Paris region, has chosen Riedel’s MediorNet real-time signal network for a new fleet of DSNG production vans to be used by the AMP Visual TV IXI subsidiary. In addition to MediorNet’s real-time transport of video, audio, and intercom signals, AMP Visual TV is benefiting from the solution’s decentralized video and audio routing and on-board signal processing capabilities.

AMP Visual TV has used Riedel’s MediorNet networking product for the past five years, streamlining major audiovisual productions like the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Cannes Film Festival.

AMP Visual TV has established a real-time network in which a MediorNet Modular frame is integrated into the DSNG vehicle to allow video and audio I/O and the generation of three Quad-Splits, two for the vehicle and one for the field. Two MediorNet Compact Pro frames complete the set-up over a redundant, self-healing fiber ring topology. Two Riedel RockNet audio stage boxes are easily interfaced with the MediorNet Compact Pro frames over a Cat5 loop, enabling audio distribution to and from the Yamaha console in the vehicle, which also features a RockNet audio interface card. A Riedel Artist intercom matrix is also integrated into the setup, together with control panels for the vehicle, a commentary panel, and Performer digital partyline beltpacks distributed over the MediorNet network. To simplify control of the Riedel infrastructure, AMP Visual TV chose the Ember+ protocol through a VSM system.

The modularity of MediorNet helped save space in the design of the new vehicles. MediorNet’s combination of real-time transport, point-to-multipoint routing, and signal processing features in a single solution offer clear benefits over the more conventional approach of having a centralized video router with external equipment for signal processing and transport.

Riedel Communications will demonstrate the latest version of MediorNet at the 2015 IBC Show, Stand 10.A31.
