At the CABSAT 2018 show, the Telos Alliance TV Solutions Group is bringing the power of Audio Over IP (AoIP) to professionals working in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region with its new Telos Infinity IP Intercom. The company said that with a quantum leap in scalability, ease of integration, efficiency and total cost of ownership, the Infinity IP Intercom represents a total reimagining of broadcast communications.
New product development takes time. This often means that companies appear to be slow in implementing emerging technologies and so lag behind their competitors. During 2017 Riedel Communications became the third of the Big Three intercom manufacturers to introduce a wireless system based on the DECT telecom standard, after RTS launched its ROAMEO at the start of the year and Clear-Com had taken an early lead over both with FreeSpeak II in 2014. But with Bolero, Riedel feels it is doing DECT “properly” and has already sold the product into a number of high profile installations, most notably the ‘new’ BBC Studioworks Television Centre in London.
Clear-Com has introduced further enhancements for its intercom systems by adding new features to the HelixNet digital network party line. These include split-ear capability on belt packs, a higher number of input-output ports and connectivity to mobile apps and voice over IP (VoIP) devices.
Clear-Com exhibited at the Live Design International (LDI) Show in Las Vegas, highlighting its latest range of LQ Series IP interfaces. These are now able to link into telephony systems as well as broadcast comms installations, with mobile voice over IP capability through the Agent-IC app.
German web TV and live production facilities company BILDQUADRAT Videoproductions has added new intercom capability to its MP1-HD outside broadcast trailer. Described by the company as a compact OB van, this different approach to location facility design now features a Riedel Communications Artist digital matrix in addition to an upgrade of the existing MediorNet distribution infrastructure.
The compact Repeat8-NANO series of media converters is the smaller brother of the Repeat48, offering ultra-fast electrical-optical-electrical conversion for 3G/HD/SD-SDI. This complete, plug-and-play 4K fiber transport comes in a single box and is therefore ideally placed for facilities requiring simple 4K transmission.
