Riedel Communications has unveiled a real-time routing network for transmitting audio, video, control and data over fiber-optic cable.

Called Mediornet, it is designed to carry uncompressed multi-channel HD/SD video, audio, intercom and data and combines signal transport, routing and signal processing and conversion in a single real-time network.

The signal-routing facility allows the user to send any incoming signal to any output or even to multiple outputs by just a mouse click or via a router-control system.

MediorNet‘s standard fiber transceivers have an optical budget of 18 dB minimum, allowing for distances of up to 25 miles (40 km). Transceivers for longer distances are also available.

Originally developed by an Austrian company of the same name the technology has been adapted and repackaged since its 2005 launch.

German broadcast communication system manufacturer and supplier Riedel acquired the company Mediornet in 2007.
