Riedel Adds Desktop SmartPanel to Growing Line of Intelligent User Interfaces

WUPPERTAL, Germany — April 24, 2017 — At the 2017 NAB Show, Riedel will introduce the newest member of the SmartPanel family of intelligent user interfaces, the DSP-2312 Desktop SmartPanel. The world’s first keypanel designed as a powerful multifunctional user interface, the app-driven SmartPanel is designed to enrich the user experience and change the way users communicate. The all-new desktop edition offers all the power and flexibility of the SmartPanel in a small, elegant, ergonomic, and low-profile device.

“Our rack-mounted SmartPanels have been widely adopted by broadcasters around the world, so we recognized an outstanding opportunity to introduce a desktop version,” said Dr. Karsten Konrad, product manager at Riedel Communications. “But we would not be happy with just another desktop panel. The DSP-2312 shows that products can be innovative and functional while still being beautiful.”

The new desktop SmartPanel features 12 keys, two TFT touch-screen LCD displays, and an integrated power supply. On-board AES67, AVB, and AES3 connectivity allows for direct connections to Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom systems without the need for expansion modules.

The DSP-2312 also boasts two exchangeable headset XLR connections, high-quality mic pre-amps, three GPIOs, two network connections, a four-wire connection, and support for Riedel SmartPanel Apps — including the Intercom Basic and Plus Apps as well as the MediorNet Control and HandsFree Apps.

The Desktop SmartPanel is the smallest full-functioning desktop panel available on the market, making it highly appealing for use in tight production areas where counter space is at a premium. The new SmartPanel also has 1/4-20 threads for use with tripods or Magic Arms for any installation environment.

The DSP-2312 is available for order now and will begin shipping this summer.
