PL+S 2015: Riedel eyes smaller venues with MicroN interface17 April 2015
Riedel Communications announced at Prolight + Sound Frankfurt the launch of the MicroN, an 80G media distribution network device for its MediorNet line of media transport and management solutions.
The MicroN is a high-density signal interface with an array of audio, video and data inputs and outputs, including 24 SD/HD/3G-SDI I/Os, two MADI optical digital audio ports, gigabit ethernet port, two sync reference I/Os and eight 10G SFP+ high-speed ports. The MicroN is available as both a fully networked MediorNet device and a point-to-point edition (at what Riedel calls “a very competitive price point”).
“In just a single rack unit, the MicroN offers a highly versatile signal interface that can be used in productions of every size and complexity,” says Lars Höhmann, Skype and MediorNet product manager at Riedel Communications. “For the largest media networks built on our MediorNet transport devices, MicroN can serve as a breakout box for a MetroN router and extend connectivity beyond the fibre I/Os to any type of video and audio I/O required. Or MicroN can simply work with a MetroN router, with other MicroN units or in a standalone point-to-point configuration to provide an economical solution for small- to medium-sized productions. And, like the other members of the MediorNet family, MicroN has powerful built-in signal processing features that eliminate the need for many external devices.”
