STANDARDS COMMS Riedel Communications will use this month’s NAB New York expo (9-10 November) to show its MediorNet MicroN being used as a decentralised router. The MicroN is an 80G media distribution network device for Riedel’s MediorNet line of real-time media transport and management solutions. At the show, Riedel will demonstrate how interconnected MicroN units can be deployed to create a decentralised routing system that distributes signal load, takes advantage of flexible node placement, and eliminates any single point of failure to create a viable alternative to traditional, monolithic routers. Also in New York, Riedel will exhibit the RSP-2318 SmartPanel, a product designed to serve as a multifunctional user interface that includes three high-resolution, sunlight-readable, multi-touch colour displays, premium-quality audio, a multilingual character set and 18 keys.
