MediorNet Compact is a stagebox that provides the flexibility of a real-time media network at the cost of multiplexing point-to-point products. Enabling fiber signal transport for 3G/HD/SD-SDI video, audio, data, and intercom, MediorNet Compact streamlines the infrastructure of any mobile production while opening the door to 4K production. Integrated signal-processing capabilities, including frame synchronization, frame store, and embedding/de-embedding, help to reduce the number, weight, and cost of required components within the truck, according to the company.

 

“Japan’s ambitious plans for rolling out 4K broadcasts are coming to fruition, and demand for 4K production is high”, has explained Cameron O’Neill, Director, Asia-Pacific, at Riedel Communications. “Using our MediorNet technology, already proven in 4K production for some of the world’s most prestigious sporting competitions, Express Co, Ltd can meet this business opportunity with an innovative OB van that handles all signals effectively”.
