Riedel Communication has added several new products to its Performer digital partyline intercom series. The system now provides 2- and 4-channel master stations; rackmount, wall-mount and desktop speaker stations; call light indicators; and 2-channel beltpack headset stations.
The new Performer master stations CR-4 (4-channel) and CR-2 (2-channel) are geared for situations in which the user is setting up a stand-alone digital partyline system. Depending on the setup, the integrated power supply of the 19-inch/1RU device can power up to 32 Performer devices per line. 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 mixed individually to each of the intercom channels. The CR-4/CR-2 can be operated using a headset or an integrated powerful loudspeaker with a gooseneck microphone. The new Performer CR-4 / CR-2 Master Station are scheduled to start shipping in October.
The CD-2 desktop speaker/headset station provides the same feature set as the CR-2 Master Station with the exception of the internal power supply. The CW-2 wall-mount speaker/headset station comes with a standard 4-gang outlet box and provides a 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 an integrated powerful loudspeaker with a microphone. A call -ignal 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.
