Intelligent and seamless interfacing to the outside world is the key to success in many intercom applications.
The Artist platform is an open world of communications. Dedicated interface solutions let you communicate with telephones, digital and analog partylines, camera intercoms, 2-way radios and other analog and digital systems.
Panel & Matrix Interfaces
PMX-2004 SFP Panel Multiplexer
The PMX-Series panel multiplexers are used to remote up to four (PMX-2008: eight) intercom panels from the Artist matrix using a fibre link. Depending on the SFP modul (SM/MM) the system allows operation of a group of intercom panels over a distance of up to 500 m (1,600 ft) or 2 km (1.2 miles) in a cost-effective way while reducing setup time to a minimum.
CPX-AVB AVB-Expansion Card for Artist 1100er Control Panels
The CPX-AVB interface card integrates Artist 1100 series OLED panels directly into AVB networks. This way the card turns the control panel into an AVB enabled device making its ports available within the entire AVB network. The expansion card converts two Artist ports to the AVB network and vice versa.
FBI Fiber Interface Adapter
The FBI converts an Artist panel port from CAT5 to fiber in a bidirectional way providing long distance operation of Artist control panels. As the unit offers both connectors, for the matrix and for the panel, it can be inserted on either side. The interface may also be used for the bidirectional transmission of an AES3 signal. Distances up to 2,000 m (6,600 ft) can be realized using duplex multimode fiber.
CIA Coax Interface Adapter
The CIA interface converts an Artist panel port from CAT5 to 75 ohm Coax and vice versa. Since Artist control panels provide both CAT5 and coax interfaces for connection to the matrix, CIA’s can be used to adapt an Artist matrix port to the existing infrastructure, especially useful for OB-vans and mobile applications. Distances up to 500 m (1,800 ft) can be realized using 0.8/4.9 video cable.
DCA-1000 Coax Expander
The Riedel DCA-1000 expands the possible length of coax links. The standard maximum distance between an Artist control panel and a matrix mainframe over a single coax cable is 500 meters (1,650 ft).The new Riedel DCA-1000 is a tiny converter box that enables panels to be connected to matrix mainframes via coax over a distance of up to 1,000 meters (3,300 ft).
Leverage existing IP infrastructures for your 1000- and 1100-series intercom panels with this small and convenient interface. Riedel’s NSA-001D Network Stream Adapter handles all bi- directional signal conversion between AES3 and AES67. The NSA-001 is a plug-and-play device that has multiple mounting options and connects between an AES67-capable switch and a legacy Riedel intercom panel of the 1000- and 1100-series.
Power is provided externally or via PoE and convenient LEDs indicate system status. Extend the service-life of your panels and simplify cabling in your Artist system!
Riedel’s NSA-002A Network Stream Adapter handles all bi-directional signal conversion between analog signals and AES67. The NSA-002A is a plug-and-play device that has multiple mounting options and connects between a Bolero wireless intercom system and any analog 4-wire.
Power is provided internally or via PoE and convenient LEDs indicate system status.
ConnectTrio combines the following in one half-rack/1RU device: two independent analog POTS telephone hybrids; an ISDN BRI/ S0 interface with two independent ISDN B-channels; and two independent VoIP audio codecs. This not only saves rack space and eliminates the need for additional equipment, but also provides enhanced flexibility to the intercom installation. Connect Trio enables you to dial, make and receive calls to and from any PSTN, VoIP, ISDN or mobile phone as well as G.722 reporter codecs. When used with Artist and Tango intercom systems, you can even remote key panels via ISDN.
Connect IPx8 provides high-quality audio-over-IP interfacing for intercom systems (EBU Tech 3347 compatible). The 19”/1RU unit is designed to connect up to eight Artist control panels or audio lines to the Artist VOIP-108 G2 matrix client card via IP-based networks. The SIP-based interface converts AES3 or analog signals into compressed IP data and vice versa. Connect IPx8 can be configured to meet your individual bandwidth needs, always providing an unmatched combination of audio quality and low network traffic. The panel interface flawlessly connects any Riedel 1100, 1000, 2300 or 5108 series keypanel with full functionality to Artist and Tango matrices via IP-networks.
RiFace G2 – Universal Radio Interface
The RiFace G2 is a universal radio interface to connect wired communication systems with walkie-talkie style radio systems. The 19”/2RU interface includes one or two two-way radios (user provided), processor logic to control the radios, DSP-presets as well as circuitry to adjust the levels of the various audio sources. Set-up and operation is fast and easy. The RiFace G2 can also operate as a stand-alone radio repeater.
JUGGLER Integrated TETRA Radio System for Artist Intercoms
The Riedel JUGGLER solution seamlessly integrates TETRA digital trunked radio networks into the wired intercom matrix, providing intelligent integration between TETRA radio groups and Riedel Artist intercom ports. The system allows calls from any port/ group/conference of the Artist system to up to 64 individual TETRA radio groups and vice versa. The interface connects the TETRA Base Station Controller to any given Riedel Artist system via MADI. JUGGLER works with any TETRA-standard compliant subscriber.
