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” like 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 over long distance (POTS, ISDN, VoIP) and over short distance (analog audio, MADI, AES, AVB, ... ) using the Trunk Navigator software to a system size of 51,200 ports.
Client Cards available for ARTIST:

The AES67-108 G2 is an Artist client card compatible with all Riedel Artist G2 frames. This add-on card enables users to take advantage of AES67 audio networks.
The AES67 client card is easily installed into the Artist mainframe and then configurable through the Director software. The interface allows AES67 connectivity between the Artist and Smartpanels and other compatible devices. The card features eight independent AES67 connections to service multiple devices.
