Riedel PERFORMER Digital Partyline Intercom Components

Performer C22
Matrix to Digital Partyline Interface
The Performer C22 system interface converts two two-channel CAT5 matrix ports to two phantom powered digital beltpack lines and vice versa, allowing seamless integration of digital partylines with matrix intercom systems. In addition it can also be used for any application, where you would like to route digital partyline intercoms via an AES digital audio infrastructure such as MediorNet, Artist or any 3rd party AES audio router solution supporting transparent AES user bit transport.
The device provides an internal matrix, allowing to either operate the two ports independently as two independent partylines or to build one distributed partyline via AES. The beltpacks are connected to the ¼ 19”/1 RU unit via standard 3 pin XLR cables. The Performer C22 can power daisy-chains of up to nine beltpacks, split-boxes or desktop speaker stations per line.

Performer C3 Digital Beltpack / Headset Station
The Performer C3 is an ergonomically shaped, fully digital 2-channel beltpack that includes all the standard features from conventional analogue party line systems including daisy-chaining. The beltpack uses high quality digital audio providing noise- and hum-free signals. Extensive DSP signal processing provides perfect side tone-nulling and excellent intelligibility in applications with very high ambient noise levels. The C3 has three XLR connectors, one for headset, one for signal input and one for signal loop through, which can also be used as an additional analogue program input.
Operation is extremely convenient. Two large rotary level controls on the top of the C3 adjust the listen volumes for CH-A and CH-B. Pushing on the A or B volume control toggles talk on/off with momentary/latching operation to the respective channel and includes talk LED indication. The C3 is easy to configure and features also a call send button. A bright call light indicates an incoming call to all daisy-chained Performer devices.

Performer CR-4 / CR-2 Master Station
The new Performer master stations CR-4 (4-channel) and CR-2 (2-channel) are the ideal choice for setting up a stand-alone digital partyline system. Depending on the set-up the integrated power supply of the 19”/1RU device can power up to 32 Performer devices such as beltpacks, split-boxes or desktop speaker stations per line. Additional power-supplies easily expand the possibilities. The clear user interface offers the user ultimate performance and flexibility. The colour-illuminated buttons are ideal for applications in operational environments. The remote mic-kill function allows the user to silence any open microphone on the intercom channels. The CR-4/CR-2 features an additional program input that can be added individually to each of the intercom channels. Other features include individual listen volume controls for all partylines, Call, GPI and a stage announce function to use the intercom microphone to talk over the PA system. The CR-4/CR-2 can be operated using a headset or the integrated powerful loudspeaker with a gooseneck microphone.

Performer CD-2 Desktop Speaker / Headset Station
The CD-2 Desktop Speaker/Headset Station provides the same feature set as the CR-2 Master Station except for the internal power-supply. This makes the CD-2 ideal either for operation as a desktop speaker station or – in combination with an external power-supply – as a 2-channel master station for setting up a stand-alone digital partyline system.

Performer CW-2 Wall Mount Speaker / Headset Station
The CW-2 Wall Mount Speaker/Headset Station comes with a standard 4-gang outlet box and provides an easy-to-use 2-channel digital intercom panel. The large rotary level controls combine volume control and a talk button with momentary/latching operation. The unit can be operated using a headset or the integrated powerful loudspeaker with a microphone. A call signal LED, Call and S-Call function complete the feature list. The CW-2 can be powered from the partyline or via a local power supply.

Performer C31 Split Box
The C31 Split Box splits one signal input on XLR3 onto three XLR3 outputs. C31 can be powered by the partyline or with an external power supply for extra long cable runs. The use of an external power supply extends the possible length of a partyline to a maximum of 2.5 km (1.5 miles).

Performer CI31 Call Indicator
The CI31 Call Indicator combines a C31 Split Box with a selectable high volume buzzer and a large flashing lamp to provide visual and/or audible indication of a “call”.

Performer C44plus
System Interface
The C44plus System Interface seamlessly integrates digital partylines in matrix intercom environments and can also serve as a stand-alone matrix for small applications. The plus-version features a USB-port on the front to connect a PC to configure the internal 24x24 matrix via the new Performer Audio Assignment Software. The 19“/1RU unit converts four two-channel CAT5 matrix ports to four phantom powered beltpack lines. The beltpacks are connected to the C44plus via standard 3 pin XLR cables. Up to 16 beltpacks can be daisy-chained on each line, one C44plus can power up to 38 beltpacks. For stand-alone use the device features an integrated 24x24 ports digital intercom matrix, which can be configured via Riedel’s Audio Assignment Software. Pre-programmed configurations can be loaded via the DIP-switches on the front.
Full digital interfacing is provided for Artist and Performer 32 matrix systems. Analogue 4-wire I/Os and GPIs are provided for interfacing to 3rd party intercom systems. The C44 provides short-circuit protection on each powered line individually. Separate DC inputs and outputs at the rear of the unit can be used to provide redundant power.

Performer ASS
Audio Assignment Software for C44plus
The Windows-based Performer Audio Assignment Software is an intuitive tool for editing the settings of eight pre-programmed configurations, which can be activated through DIP switches on the front of the Performer C44plus. This expansion will enable the C44plus to serve as the heart of a small stand-alone intercom solution.
