Riedel to debut Bolero wireless intercom at InfoComm 2017
Making its InfoComm debut, Riedel's Bolero is a wireless, expandable, DECT-based intercom system in the license-free 1.9GHz frequency range.
Bolero offers a set of features and connectivity that can be applied three ways: as a wireless beltpack, as a wireless keypanel, and as a walkie-talkie radio.
The system runs over a standards-based AES67 IP network, and its decentralised antennas connect to AES67 switches and then to Artist frames equipped with AES67 client cards to provide a fully integrated point-to-point intercom ecosystem with roaming capabilities.
Bolero uses a 7KHz voice codec to provide speech intelligibility and processing efficiency. Bolero operates at twice the spectrum efficiency of other DECT-based systems, equating to up to 10 beltpacks per antenna (fully roaming) and up to 100 antennas per system.
Other features include Riedel's Advanced DECT Receiver (ADR) technology to improve RF robustness by reducing sensitivity to multipath reflections, Near-Field Communication technology to facilitate 'Touch&Go' beltpack registration, Bluetooth 4.1, and an ergonomic beltpack wrapped in high-impact plastic and rubber overmolds.
The Desktop SmartPanel is the newest member of the Riedel SmartPanel family of intelligent user interfaces. This desktop edition offers the features of the original SmartPanel in an ergonomic, low-profile device.
The desktop SmartPanel features 12 keys, two TFT touch-screen LCD displays, and an integrated power supply. On-board AES67, AVB, and AES3 connectivity allows for direct connections to Riedel's Artist digital matrix intercom systems without the need for expansion modules. The DSP-2312 also boasts two exchangeable headset XLR connections, high-quality mic pre-amps, three GPIOs, two network connections, a four-wire connection, and support for Riedel SmartPanel Apps, including the Intercom Basic and Plus Apps as well as the MediorNet Control and HandsFree Apps.
Also making its InfoComm debut, Riedel's MediorNet MultiViewer App is an all-new virtual multiviewer app based on the MediorNet MicroN high-density media distribution hardware and designed to work within the MediorNet network.
