Riedel's MediorNet Compact Installed In 4K OB Van

News Image
Express Co has installed a Riedel Communications MediorNet Compact network, as well as an Artist and Performer system as part of its first 4K production truck.

Based in Japan, Express Co chose Riedel's signal distribution and communications technology for the OB van, which will allow the company to address rising demand for 4K production and broadcast.

Riedel uses a fiber-based networked approach and integration between products to facilitate installation and management of MediorNet, Artist, and Performer systems into both fixed and mobile facilities. For the new Express Co vehicle, the Riedel systems enable simple setup and configuration while minimising cabling.

MediorNet Compact is a stagebox that provides the flexibility of a real-time media network at the cost of simple multiplexing point-to-point products. It enables fiber signal transport for 3G/HD/SD-SDI video, audio, data, and intercom, and streamlines the infrastructure of any mobile production while opening the option to 4K production. Integrated signal-processing capabilities, including frame synchronization, frame store, and embedding/de-embedding, help to reduce the number, weight, and cost of required components within the truck.

Riedel's Artist serves as a modular communications platform to address the demands of modern intercom applications. The Artist's fiber-based network provides a decentralized infrastructure that can simplify the distribution of audio while ensuring clear and reliable intercom communications.

A representative from Express Co, Ltd said: "We're very excited about the flexibility that Riedel's MediorNet brings to our new 4K-capable OB van, as well as the versatility and interoperability of the company's Artist and Performer systems. As we expand our business to address rapidly growing demand for 4K content, we can be confident in the quality and reliability of our signal transport and communications infrastructure. Riedel equipment is known for setting the industry standard, and we plan to take full advantage of it in providing top-notch 4K OB production services."

"Japan's ambitious plans for rolling out 4K broadcasts are coming to fruition, and demand for 4K production is high," added Cameron O'Neill, Director, Asia-Pacific, at Riedel Communications. "Using our MediorNet technology, already proven in 4K production for some of the world's most prestigious sporting competitions, Express Co, Ltd can meet this business opportunity with an innovative OB van that handles all signals effectively."
