2017 NAB Show Product Preview
New: Bolero Wireless Intercom Solution
Making its North American debut at the 2017 NAB Show, Riedel’s Bolero is a game-changing new wireless intercom solution. An expandable, full-roaming, DECT-based intercom system in the license-free 1.9GHz frequency range, Bolero is fully integrated into Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom platform. Bolero offers a rich set of features and connectivity that can be applied three ways: as an exceptional wireless beltpack, as a wireless keypanel, and — in an industry first — as a walkie-talkie radio. The system runs over a standards-based AES67 IP network, and its decentralized 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 seamless roaming capabilities.

NEW: MediorNet MultiViewer App
Making its debut at the 2017 NAB Show, 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. The MediorNet MultiViewer App delivers the benefits of a decentralized signal network by enabling multiviewer hardware to be placed anywhere it’s needed, and it leverages the network for sources and removes the extra layer of gear and complexity that would be required by a large monolithic router.

New: SmartPanel HandsFree App
At the 2017 NAB Show, Riedel will unveil the new HandsFree App for its SmartPanel — the world’s first key panel designed as a powerful multifunctional user interface. With the HandsFree App running on SmartPanel, users can easily and securely pair their iOS or Android handsets to their SmartPanels using Bluetooth technology. The app then enables the routing of phone audio directly through the Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom system.
A brand-new addition to Riedel’s SmartPanel multifunctional user interface family will be unveiled at the 2017 NAB Show.
“At this year’s NAB Show, attendees will experience how Riedel is continuing to push the edge of innovation in real-time signal distribution, networking, and intercom. New solutions range from the category-defining new Bolero wireless intercom to the all-new MediorNet MultiViewer App for our versatile MicroN hardware module, and now — coming at the show — an all-new version of our highly functional SmartPanel interface.”
