Riedel Connect AVB
23 April 2012
Riedel Connect AVB provides real-time communications over Ethernet in broadcast quality. Connecting intercom panels over an Ethernet-based LAN environment has been the dream of many system-planers.
But issues inherent to IP like latency, reliability and missing synchronization prevented them from doing so. Riedel’s new Connect AVB product line overcomes these issues and provides a real-time communication solution fulfilling the demands of professional intercom users. Based on official IEEE next generation Ethernet standards like 802.1Qav, P802.1Qat and P802.1AS, AVB allows risk-free utilization of AVB compliant facility or enterprise LAN infrastructure for intercom applications. This allows for new approaches in system design providing significant savings in infrastructure investments.
Riedel's AVB products offer a large number of intercom applications via LAN such as matrix-to-control panel connections, audio distribution, matrix-to-matrix trunking connections and distribution of digital partylines.
The Riedel suite of AVB products includes the AVB-108 G2 Client Card and Connect AVBx8 panel interfaces. Both convert eight AES signals to AVB and vice versa. While the AVB-108 G2 card is a regular Artist client card to be used inside the Artist mainframe, the Connect AVBx8 is built in a compact 9.5"/1RU housing connecting up to eight Artist control panels to the AVB cloud.
