Riedel products at ISE 2014 R iedel Communications has released a new universal video I/O card for the company’s MediorNet Modular real-time network. Supporting a variety of small form-factor pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers, the MediorNet MN-C-OPT-HDMI and MN- HDO-4IO universal video cards enable the flexible configuration of MediorNet systems for bidirectional transport of analog composite video, HDMI, DVI, and optical or coaxial SDI signals. Mics hit the road on MKS tour Ideal for environments including theaters, houses of worship, hotels, convention centers, and stadiums, the MediorNet bidirectional video cards bring added fl exibility to Riedel’s MediorNet Modular system. Depending on which SFP transceivers are installed, the card can handle a combination of either four HD (1.5G) or two 1080p (3G) bidirectional video signals or analog video, HDMI, DVI, or optical SDI video I/Os. HDMI I/Os employ self- locking mini HDMI connectors. D PA’s d:facto© II Vocal Microphones have been proving their flexibility and giving great performances on tour with MKS, the original Sugababes line-up. The mics have also been at work in the prestigious setting of the world-famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London. Charlie Dale, in-house engineer at Ronnie Scott’s and Front of House engineer for the band MKS and US rapper Angel Haze, is using DPA d:facto II Vocal Microphones across all these very different setups. It was at Ronnie Scott’s that Dale fi rst came across the microphones. DPA’s UK distributor Sound Network lent the club a unit to try out and Dale was immediately impressed. “They instantly became my mic of choice for lead vocals, surpassing two big brands I had been using previously,” he says. “The d:facto’s mostly fl at frequency response until its soft boost at 10 kHz gave me the ability to sculpt a very true representation of the performer’s voice with clear highs so that I don’t have to fi ght against feedback to pull out, and with all the warm tone one would expect from many jazz vocals.” Upgraded master player software Archimedia Technology, a new company whose technology and applications bridge the gap between content producers and their archives without loss of quality, have announced the Archimedia Master Player v1.5. An upgrade to the company’s software player, v1.5 now supports the remainder of all common master formats in use around the world today -- including the long-awaited, studio-driven SMPTE IMF -- and contains new features that make the player a true 4k-era replacement for videotape machines for master-grade quality control (QC) and archiving functions. 20 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 85 JANUARY 2014
