Riedel Communications’ Artist-1024 node is the next step in the continuous development of the Artist intercom ecosystem. This node complements the Artist family, expanding its capabilities with a focus on IP-based installations. Artist-1024 boasts 1024 non-blocking ports in just 2RU and introduces a range of technical innovations centered around software-definable Universal Interface Cards (UIC). These interface cards combine networking, mixing and management and can be configured to act as a SMPTE 2110-30/31 (AES67) or MADI subscriber card, or as an Artist fiber/router/processor card. Changing the connectivity type is as easy as reconfiguring the UIC with the click of a button in Director. Each AES67/MADI-configured card can scale from 8-128 ports via a flexible licensing scheme. Artist- 1024 incorporates 3 different forms of redundancy and redundant power supplies and fans. An E-Ink display indicates important system parameters even when power is off, and support for multiple independent sync domains is included.
