New Biamp Systems White Paper Finds Communication Technologies Fall Short of Current Collaboration Demands

Research reveals improved bottom line and a reduction in business travel as key benefits of increased investment in collaboration technologies

BEAVERTON, Oregon — Sept. 16, 2014 — Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, has published a new white paper looking at the crucial role collaboration technologies play in today’s businesses. Titled “Clear Communications: Placing the End User at the Heart of Collaboration,” it highlights problems organizations reported as they expand working relationships over increasingly larger distances. With more than 37 percent of respondents stating that time is regularly wasted on conference calls due to unsuccessful attempts to connect and poor sound quality, businesses must address these issues or they may find themselves falling behind more efficient and productive competitors.

The report emphasizes the need for organizations to evolve their internal processes in order to cope with a workforce that continues to include numerous international locations. With 43 percent of respondent businesses having opened one or more offices over the past three years, and another 16 percent either planning or considering expansion into a new location, IT departments are under increasing pressure to ensure that teams are able to communicate effectively, despite being separated by continents, time zones, or cultures.

Investing funds solely in IT is not enough. The whitepaper recommends that IT and AV departments must work together closely in order to develop an appropriate solution. IT decision makers agreed — with 62 percent of respondents stating that AV systems that are networked into the existing IT infrastructure would increase productivity at their companies. 52 percent added that such AV systems could improve their company’s bottom line.

“Clear communication is the primary facilitator of good business relationships. With workforces becoming increasingly distributed around the globe, businesses cannot afford to be let down by the technology they use to enable collaboration,” said Graeme Harrison, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Biamp. “High quality conferencing exists, but the introduction of desktop conferencing solutions requires companies to invest thoughtfully so they gain all the benefits from this technology. Ensuring that clear, intelligible audio is included with the other capabilities is critical. Coordination between the IT department and the AV expert will enable effective collaboration.”

The white paper is now available for free download by visiting http://bit.ly/1y8Dkkz.

The unit offers broadcast-quality HD-SDI and balanced XLR audio I/Os and is packaged with professional Microsoft Skype TX software. The solution’s broad feature set includes remote management and monitoring of Skype calls.

“We are very proud of the result of this collaboration with Microsoft,” said Thomas Riedel, CEO of Riedel Communications. “By enabling use of a tremendous volume of new content, the STX-200 will change the way broadcasters interact and engage with their viewers. Broadcasters now have live access to quality video from the more than 300 million regular Skype users around the world, and the STX-200 equips them to take the best of this content to engage the imaginations and minds of their audiences.”

The STX-200 offers professional video interfaces including an SDI (SD/HD) input and SDI (SD/HD) output with a sync input. The unit’s broadcast-grade audio interfaces include a two-channel balanced analog audio XLR input and output, as well as SDI embedded audio. Within a robust housing designed for the rigors of broadcast and production, the STX-200 features a Gigabit Ethernet connection, a user-interface connection via HDMI, USB ports for accessories, and GPIs.

Riedel’s New RSP-2318 Smartpanel Provides Powerful Multifunctional Interface for Broadcast Deployments

WUPPERTAL, Germany — Sept. 12, 2014 – Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced the release of the new RSP-2318 Smartpanel. As the world’s first Smartpanel designed to serve as a powerful multifunctional user interface, the RSP-2318 offers features and capabilities that will enrich the user experience and change the way broadcasters and AV professionals communicate.

“Our panels have evolved over the years to incorporate cutting-edge designs with features such as high-resolution OLED displays and support for colors and languages,” said Thomas Riedel, CEO of Riedel Communications. “Our Smartpanel represents the logical next step in communications, as it gives broadcasters a universal panel that is capable of performing multiple functions across multiple applications.”

The unique feature set of the RSP-2318 Smartpanel includes three high-resolution, sunlight-readable, multitouch color displays; premium-quality stereo audio; a multilingual character set; and 18 keys in just 1 RU. These features make Riedel’s new Smartpanel a powerful user interface that can be further expanded through the use of apps. Riedel’s first app for the RSP-2318 turns the Smartpanel into an innovative and smart intercom panel.

Offering AES67 and AVB connectivity as standard, and optionally AES3 over CAT/coax, Riedel’s RSP-2318 Smartpanel provides exchangeable headset connectors for mono or stereo applications, an integrated power supply, individual volume controls for each key, two USB ports, two Ethernet connectors, GPIO, audio I/O, an option slot, a removable gooseneck microphone, an SD card slot, and an HDMI output. A low mounting depth simplifies installation of the unit.

Developed to address communications applications including intercom, the RSP-2318 Smartpanel provides an intuitive and flexible user interface that can handle multiple tasks.

“In the same way that smartphones have far surpassed traditional mobile phones in enriching the user experience, the Riedel RSP-2318 Smartpanel will bring broadcast workflows to a whole new level,” Riedel said.

The RSP-2318 Smartpanel can be integrated into any existing Riedel installation. Support for new and legacy systems ensures smooth interoperability among all Riedel intercom systems, including the Artist, Tango, and Performer products.

Riedel Announces New Tango Networked and Expandable Platform With Its Own Intercom Application

WUPPERTAL, Germany — Sept. 12, 2014 – Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced the release of Tango TNG-200, the company’s first fully networked platform based on the AES67 and AVB standards. With its own dedicated intercom application, 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 Thomas Riedel, CEO of Riedel Communications. “We have been on the forefront of adoption of standards for several years now, and we are proud to introduce at IBC2014 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, theater, and live-event environments.”

Riedel’s Tango TNG-200 is an efficient solution equipped with a high-resolution, full-color thin-film-transistor display that ensures perfect readability at all times. The unit’s intuitive front-panel controls simplify the recall of presets and adjustment of audio levels.

Along with powerful processing capabilities, 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 and features a shallow mounting depth and low-noise design. It is fully compatible with all of Riedel’s current and legacy intercom panels, including the company’s new RSP-2318 Smartpanel.

Riedel’s powerful intercom application, TNG-200, turns the Tango platform into an efficient intercom system that users can tailor according to their needs, including choice of matrix size starting with 40 x 80. The asymmetric 40 x 80 matrix size is another Riedel innovation allowing for standard premium-quality stereo audio connection to Riedel panels.

Riedel’s new Pulse software enables configuration of the Tango TNG-200 platform. The software allows users to access, set up, and control any aspect and function of the platform and its installed applications, including Riedel’s intercom application. Programming is easy, thanks to convenient drag-and-drop functionality and 3D views.

Tango will be on display at IBC2014 at stand 10.A31.
