|Riedel Communications presented its new Artist 5000 series intercom control panels at IBC 2009 and at PLASA09 in London. The Artist 5000 panel series is a cost-effective matrix intercom solution designed to meet the demands of all intercom applications. It provides the full functionality of Riedel's digital matrix intercom panels at an entry-price level.|
There are two panel models available, with marker strips or with 8 character, high-contrast LCD displays which show the label for each talk key. The LCD-display versions also offer a 'shift'-page, doubling the number of keys to a total of 16. The universal enclosure makes the panel suitable for rack-mount, wall-mount and desktop operation. Connection to any Artist or Performer matrix is realized digitally via a standard AES3 signal on CAT-5 cable. In addition, this allows the user to route panels through any 3rd party digital audio device. The panels feature an integrated loudspeaker, a gooseneck microphone and LED indication for 'shift'-page mode, headset mode and microphone activation. As all Riedel panels, the Artist 5000 series features an internal power-supply..
