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.

Features

  • Easily scalable from 8 x 8 to 1,024 x 1,024 full summing, non-blocking ports, further expansion via trunking to 50,200 ports.
  • Fully redundant system with a redundant dual ring fiber optic network. All modules are hot-swappable.
  • Easy system expansion – all matrix frames feature the same type of controller & client cards. This also reduces significantly the need for spare pooling.
  • Extensive interfacing via client cards provides for easy system integration.
  • Up to 100 frames can be connected to a redundant dual fiber optic ring
  • Efficient cooling concept results in a very quiet system - an advantage not only for mobile production units.
