IBC 2014: Riedel Communications has released Tango TNG-200, the company’s first fully networked platform based on the AES67 audio-over-IP protocol and audio video bridging (AVB) standard.

With its own dedicated intercom application, Riedel said the platform can be turned into a flexible, cutting-edge solution for a variety of communications scenarios.

“We have always considered the networked approach to signal distribution to be the most desirable option for today’s broadcasters,” said chief executive Thomas Riedel.

“We have been on the forefront of adoption of standards for several years now, and we are proud to introduce at IBC the world’s first networked and expandable open hardware platform that can also run a powerful intercom application.

“As an exceptionally flexible platform, Tango not only adapts to users’ specific requirements, but also accommodates current and future standards in broadcast, theatre, and live-event environments.”

Riedel’s Tango TNG-200 is equipped with a high-resolution, full-colour thin-film-transistor display.

The unit’s front-panel controls have been designed to simplify the recall of presets and adjustment of audio levels.

The Tango TNG-200 features two integrated Riedel digital partylines, two AES67 and AVB-compatible ports, two Ethernet ports, one option slot and redundant power supplies.

The system is 1.5 RU high.
