Riedel has introduced the RSP-1216HL SmartPanel, an all-new 1U-high unit that joins the company’s 1200 Series of intelligent intercom and control panels for real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks.

Riedel RSP-1216HL SmartPanelWith its development prompted by user demand, the RSP-1216HL is a compact version of the app-based RSP-1232HL SmartPanel interface: ‘We took a quantum leap forward in workflow flexibility, power, and connectivity when we introduced the RSP-1232HL SmartPanel,’ says Riedel Product Manager, Benjamin Lampert. ‘Our customers have requested a 1U version, and now it’s here. With the RSP-1216HL, we managed to concentrate all the power of the RSP-1232HL in an even more compact form factor without sacrificing any functionality or user-friendliness.’

Like its big brother, the fully IP-centric RSP-1216HL features a full-colour, high-resolution, sunlight-readable touchscreen, as well as a hybrid-lever key design that combines lever- and rotary-style key styles, allowing users to control parameters with a single key. The new panel has the same connectivity options as its counterpart, with support for AES3 and SMPTE 2110-30 (AES67) connections together with GPIO, analogue, or AES67 4-Wire, as well as front and rear USB ports. The slimmer RSP-1216HL offers a single speaker and 16 hybrid-lever keys, compared with the RSP-1232HL’s two speakers and 32 hybrid-lever keys.

The software-defined architecture of the 1200 Series SmartPanels enables them to keep pace as new technologies and workflows emerge in dynamic broadcast, event production, and professional A/V environments as the feature set of the SmartPanel family is steadily expanded by various software apps. With the coming Control Panel App and Audio Monitoring App, the 1200 Series SmartPanels will suit environments in which space is at a premium, uniting intercom, control, and audio monitoring functionality into a single keypanel while reducing costs and saving rack or desk space.

‘We have improved the audio quality of our 1200 Series panels further by developing a new audio processing capability that delivers excellent speech quality and reproduces program material in unprecedented, distortion-free quality even at high levels,’ Lampert adds. ‘This new 1U version opens another chapter in the SmartPanel success story. And looking at the two new powerful apps already on the horizon, this story has only just begun.’
