ARTIST – Digital Matrix Intercom

Artist Intro

ARTIST Matrices – Scalable System Frames that Grow with your demands

Riedel Artist is a true network infrastructure based on highly modular matrix mainframes. The individual Artist matrix mainframes can be equipped exactly as needed. But it is not only the mainframes themselves being modular and thus expandable, it‘s also the system‘s distributed architecture itself.

Simply select the desired frame size and add the client cards you need. As your demands grow, you can easily expand your system by adding new client cards or additional frames to your system. And if you need to exchange a smaller frame for a bigger one you don’t need to buy new controller & client cards. Since all Artist frames feature the same type of cards, you can just simply use the cards you were using before. This scalability and expandability makes Artist a secure long-term investment.

Up to 128 ports can be accommodated in a single frame and up to 100 frames can be connected to a redundant dual fiber optic ring resulting in a maximum matrix size of 1,024 x 1,024 non-blocking intercom ports. The system still “feels” one unit: it is completely non-blocking and has no limitations in the number of cross-points within or between the different nodes of the system. In addition, up to 50 Artist intercom systems can be trunked via conventional telephone, ISDN or VoIP trunk lines and the Trunk Navigator software to a system size of 51,200 ports.
