Bildquadrat Videoproductions, one of Europe’s leading providers of live production and outside broadcasting (OB) services, has completed a major expansion and an upgrade of the Riedel systems onboard its state-of-the-art OB vehicle.
The truck was launched in 2015 with a signal transport backbone powered by Riedel’s MediorNet real-time network, including a MediorNet MicroN 80G media distribution interface. With the upgrade, Bildquadrat has expanded the integrated signal transport, routing, and processing capabilities of MediorNet and enhanced communications with the installation of a Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom system.
Bildquadrat’s van features a compact and completely modular design that can be adapted easily for mobile productions of all types and sizes. The onboard MediorNet and MicroN devices are connected over a 10 Gbps optical fiber network to create a fully redundant, decentralized routing matrix. Bildquadrat has also built MediorNet frames into mobile stage boxes, giving the production team the flexibility to deploy the solution’s signal processing capabilities anywhere on the set. Each stage box is preconfigured in the van and equipped with microphone and in-ear systems, saving time and removing on-set integration hassles.
On board the Bildquadrat OB van, Riedel’s MediorNet MicroN offers a compact and multifunctional signal interface that drives an 80G media network in only a single RU. With the upgrade, Bildquadrat has expanded the MediorNet decentralized routing matrix with seven MicroN high-density media distribution network devices that can be deployed in modular fashion for a variety of uses. One of the MicroN devices operates as a dedicated multiviewer using the MediorNet MultiViewer App.
