Audio over IP (AoIP) is being used to update and improve sound quality and networking capability in a number of broadcast applications, including intercom. Now that these two priorities are established, developers are looking at other implementations of AoIP, with Studio Technologies introducing a Dante-based alerting unit during the 2018 NAB Show.
Clear-Com presented the BroaMan-brand of video, audio, intercom and data transport and routing solutions to the broadcast market at its NAB booth.
Intercom and networking developer Riedel Communications moved on with its 1200 Series of SmartPanels at the 2018 NAB Show by introducing the latest in the range, the RSP-1232HL. This offers multiple multi-touch displays, hybrid lever-keys and the ability to be adapted to a user’s specific requirements and way of working.
Australian base band to IP workflow developer BirdDog has extended its product line into audio with a development that it calls “visual communications”. BirdDog Audio Comms was launched during the 2018 NAB Show and is based on NDI (Network Device Interface) to create what is described as the broadcast market’s first plug-and-play video intercom.
Clear-Com’s central highlight on the first day of the 2018 NAB Show was a ‘Technology Demonstration’ of a new IP platform for its major intercom systems. The IP Transceiver (IPT) is designed to work with the FreeSpeak II wireless communications range but can work with the Eclipse HX digital matrix through AES67 and the second new introduction, the E-IPA connection card.
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.
