Riedel MediorNet Compact Pro Used To Interconnect Canada Venues

News Image
Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity has interconnected its theatres, recital halls, recording studios, and production facilities with Riedel Communications' MediorNet media network. The network consists of five MediorNet Compact Pro 50G media distribution frames.

The Canadian institution, located near the Canadian Rockies in Alberta, previously spent time every day moving and setting up equipment all over its 42-acre campus in order to establish remote operations for capturing and transporting camera signals.

A MediorNet is now deployed permanently in each of two control rooms and three more are used as portable stageboxes at various venues. They can now simultaneously interconnect multiple performance and and recording spaces with a feed of multiplexed HD-SDI video, MADI audio, analog audio, Ethernet, and intercom signals. During large productions in which two studios are active simultaneously and supported by both control rooms, the centre is now able to create fiber links between the two studio stageboxes, while the third stagebox manages the active cross-feeds between the control rooms. The fiber links simplify the interconnection of the two active studios in circumstances which inter-control-room feeds are not required.

"The MediorNet system has allowed us to tie our campus together in one comprehensive fiber- optic production network. This robust flexibility is handy since we often have simultaneous performance and recording demands that occur throughout our campus," said Woody MacPhail, Senior Producer/Technical Director, Media and Production, Banff Center. "Also, MediorNet has allowed us to reduce our labor costs and the ongoing wear and tear on audio/video switching and monitoring equipment when it's moved throughout the campus. Establishing remote feeds is now a much more efficient process by which we just route signals to our remote video and audio control rooms as the need arises."

Joyce Bente, President and CEO of Riedel North America commented: "Drawing high-profile, landmark events such as the TEDSummit and the Banff Mountain Film + Book Festival, Banff Centre is a showcase of the best in the creative arts. Facilities such as the Banff Centre, with its spread-out campus and widely distributed venues, are a perfect use case for our MediorNet Compact PRO. It's just right for small to mid-sized applications, and because it's compatible with all other MediorNet devices, it's fully scalable as a satellite stagebox in larger media networks."
