Riedel becomes latest AIMS member

AIMS has announced that Riedel Communications is the latest media technology company to join the alliance.

Founded in 1987 and headquartered in Wuppertal, Germany, Riedel is a provider of real-time networks for audio video and communications applications; in particular, digital audio matrix systems and fibre-based real-time media network technology.

Its products and technologies, including MediorNet, the world’s first fibre-based video network for integrated signal transport, are in common use throughout the world in broadcast, pro-audio, events, sports, theatre and security applications. These include applications in the staging of major global sporting events and within international sports governing bodies.

Commenting for the company on joining the alliance, Lars Hoehmann, product manager MediorNet, said, “At Riedel, we have always been dedicated to facilitating reliable and versatile workflows that meet our customers’ individual requirements.

“By joining the Alliance for IP Media Solutions, we extend our product’s format support, providing our customers with more benefits of standards-based communications solutions while offering them plug-and-play simplicity. Our aim, as a solutions provider, is to secure their investments and to support them on their path towards IP-based media infrastructures."

AIMS’ efforts are focused on promoting the adoption, standardization, development and refinement of open protocols for media over IP, with an initial emphasis on VSF TR-03 and TR-04, SMPTE 2022-6 and AES67.

Open standards work for the IP transition is already underway by the 77-member Video Services Forum (VSF), with the support of organisations such as SMPTE and the EBU.
