Riedel expands MediorNet family drawing inspiration from Embrionix

Riedel has unveiled 13 new hardware devices and nine new software apps as part of a major expansion of its MediorNet family of video networking devices. The developments follow the German manufacturer’s acquisition of Embrionix at the beginning of the year.

“These versatile new devices are united by two key qualities that have driven our philosophy for media infrastructures since the beginning – they‘re distributed, and they’re software-defined,” said Jan Eveleens, director business development, Riedel Communications. “With these new solutions serving a wide range of different functions and applications, we now have a stronger roadmap into the IP world and an even more comprehensive migration strategy for customers.”

The first new hardware innovation unveiled is MediorNet MicroN UHD, the big brother to the manufacturer’s MicroN media distribution and processing device. Building on a distributed and software-defined concept, the new node adds more bandwidth, more I/O, higher resolutions and more processing power to the MediorNet platform.

Close collaboration between product management and engineering teams from Riedel headquarters and Riedel Montreal, formerly known as Embrionix, also brought forth the MediorNet MuoN, VirtU, and FusioN product series. According to the manufacturer, these new processing modules and processing hubs complement the intelligent MediorNet signal interfaces and core switches to round out the Riedel video portfolio with full-IP solutions.

At the heart of the new MediorNet products lies MuoN SFP technology. MuoN SFPs are pluggable gateway and processing devices that can be used inside VirtU frames or commercial off-the-shelf IP switches. The software-defined MuoN hardware is available with a range of different input and output configurations, including BNC, fibre or HDMI, and can be configured with a variety of different apps. A change of the software license turns the device into an up/down/cross-converter, a JPEG-2000/XS encoder or decoder, an audio router or a multiviewer.

Riedel’s portfolio of distributed video network devices is further enhanced by the VirtU and FusioN product series, which are said to boast the highest density in the market. The VirtU IP core infrastructure platform can host a large array of Riedel MuoN SFP processors in just 1U and can be used both as a bulk gateway and as a high-density processing unit. FusioN is a series of compact, stand-alone I/O and processing devices that are configurable with a range of software apps. Due to their small form factor and low power consumption, the FusioN devices can be placed close to signal sources or destinations, creating efficiencies in any production environment.

Alongside new software-defined hardware platforms, Riedel has also launched a range of brand-new apps for up/down/cross-conversion, encoding/decoding, audio routing, and multiviewing, as well as a series of IP gateway apps.

“Since Embrionix joined the Riedel family late last year, we have worked relentlessly to integrate their powerful technologies into our video solutions portfolio. Months of hard work now culminate in this flexible and powerful range of products that is set to revolutionise signal distribution and processing in the broadcast and event markets,” said Thomas Riedel, founder and CEO of Riedel Communications. “We are really proud of what we have achieved as a team, and we are happy to present our common vision for the future of video networks with the MuoN, VirtU, and FusioN series.”
