Riedel ACROBAT Digital Wireless Intercom

The Riedel Acrobat Digital Wireless Intercom system is an easy to use full-duplex communications solution for broadcast, security, industrial and theatre applications as well as sports and cultural events.

Acrobat takes a completely new approach to wireless communications, pushing it beyond the limits of existing wireless intercom solutions.

Riedel Communications’ Acrobat Digital Wireless Intercom solution utilises the benefits of the Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) standard’s base layer. This provides a license-free, cellular architecture with seamless hand-over between cells, allowing each Acrobat Wireless Beltpack to continuously monitor and automatically select the best connection to the Acrobat Cell Controller. Utilising the DECT platform, Riedel has advanced the technology to deliver a highly flexible wireless intercom solution that really reflects the market’s needs.

Acrobat WB-2 Wireless Beltpack / Headset Station
The Acrobat Wireless Beltpack is a light and compact, digital headset station with two individually configurable channels for intercom and IFB use. Operation is intuitive and follows the concept of Riedel’s Performer C3 Digital Partyline Beltpack. Two large rotary level controls on top of the beltpack combine talk-key and volume-control for each channel. Turning the controls adjusts the listen volume, pushing the controls toggles talk on/off with momentary or latching operation. Activation is indicated by a talk-LED, a bright call light indicates an incoming call. The beltpack features an OLED display which by default shows the labels for both talk-keys and two user-definable function keys. In addition, the display gives the user access to the intuitive configuration menu. The Acrobat wireless beltpack has an XLR connector for headset and a RJ45-port for firmware updates. A fully charged RB-2300 Rechargeable Battery allows for 8 hours of operation. The rugged housing with rubber protectors includes the internal antenna.

Acrobat CC-8 Cell Controller / Base Station
The Acrobat Cell Controller serves as the heart of any Acrobat Digital Wireless Intercom installation. The device handles the VoIP-over-DECT cell management incl. cell synchronization, channel coordination, seamless hand-over and the audio coding and IP transfer. The 19”/2RU unit connects to any partyline or matrix intercom via eight analog 4-wire ports and 12 GPIOs. Four powered RJ45 Ethernet connectors for direct connection of up to four Acrobat Cell Antennas complete the Cell Controller’s interfacing. For further coverage up to 35 additional Cell Antennas can be connected via Ethernet network switches. The configuration of the Cell Controller is achieved via a web interface.

Acrobat CC-60/CC-120
Wireless Control Panel Controller / Base Station
The Acrobat CC-60 Wireless Control Panel Controller focuses on wireless intercom applications demanding for a matrix-like intercom approach. The 19”/2RU unit intelligently connects to Riedel Artist intercoms via MADI. The CC-60 can handle up to 60 Wireless Beltpacks / Control Panels (CC-120: 100 Wireless Beltpacks). Each beltpack uses one port in the Artist system and operates just like a wired 2-key Artist control panel. The beltpacks are configured via the Director configuration software and allow the free configuration of any function to the keys including callto-port and call-to-conference as well as multiple commands per key. All audio and command processing is handled by the Artist system – the CC-60 provides the VoIP-over-DECT cell management including cell synchronization, channel coordination, seamless hand-over and the audio coding and IP transfer. A RJ45 Ethernet port provides connection of up to 100 Acrobat Cell Antennas via external PoE Ethernet network switches.

Acrobat CA-6 Cell Antenna
The Acrobat Cell Antenna is connected to the Acrobat Cell Controller via Ethernet, allowing the use of existing standard structured cabling and providing a wide area between Cell Controller and Antennas. The Cell Antenna is powered via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), simplifying installations by eliminating local power-supplies. The Acrobat Cell Antenna has a range of 150 meters under line-of-sight conditions or 50 meters indoors.
