Artist is designed as a powerful matrix platform for intercom and the distribution of analogue and digital audio as well as TCP/IP data signals. This Artist system is easy to configure and provides decentralized system architecture with a redundant dual ring fibre network. Artist can be easily expanded from 8 to 1,024 ports without trunking, providing a single large, full summing, non blocking distributed matrix. The system allows trunking connections between up to 50 Artist installations, resulting in a system with up to 51,200 ports. Artist provides AES3 broadcast quality throughout the entire system and extensive interfacing including VoIP and professional mobile radio (conventional & P25/TETRA). To meet the requirements of any budget Riedel offers several choices for high-quality control key panels with 8 character displays.
The Performer Series provides the world’s first digital party line intercom system, providing 2 and 4-channel master stations, rack-mount, wall-mount and desktop speaker stations as well as call light indicators and 2-channel belt pack headset stations.

Their ruggedized steel enclosures resemble the look and feel of a modular stage box. All the RockNet devices feature locking IEC connectors for the redundant power supplies. All other connectors are entirely gold-plated and the circuit design is streamlined to ultra low noise and minimum distortion to meet the highest demands in audio quality.
Riedel’s RiLink is the new way to connect broadcast live signals from remote event locations to the studio or foreign studios with home facility. The RiLink Global Fiber Service transports more than just the HD/SD-SDI video signals that would be furnished by satellite links in a conventional production. It also provides additional features like voice communication and Internet access which significantly reduce complexity and costs for planning and operating of remote event productions. RiLink allows bi-directional long-distance transport for HD video, audio, communications and data signals. Compared with satellite links RiLink provides higher bandwidth, lower latency and cost effective flat rate operation.
