A part of
Intercom - in One
RTS is pleased to announce the global launch
of the ODIN OMNEO digital intercom matrix...
he latest in an ongoing programme of IPfocused product launches, including the
ROAMEO DECT-based wireless system and
KP-Series keypanels, ODIN is a major new
addition to the RTS portfolio.
ODIN condenses decades of experience
and the latest RTS innovations into a
compact single rack unit package that
offers state-of-the-art IP technology along
with analog connectivity. Where previous
generation digital matrix products were
significantly larger and more costly to own
and operate, ODIN's feature set and form
factor are designed to make a professional
matrix solution more accessible and easier to
use than ever before, opening up the benefits
of IP-based communications for a wide range
of new markets and users of all levels.
In keeping with the RTS principles
of forward thinking and backwards
compatibility, ODIN can seamlessly integrate
into the most sophisticated, large-scale
intercom operations, extending the value of
the initial investment, while also providing a
path for system expansion for smaller users
who want to upgrade existing RTS systems
to the latest technologies.
optional optical fibre SFP connectors. Users
can flexibly define ports to use any of the
available connector types. As a user's
capacity needs evolve, a single ODIN can
grow from the basic 16 ports to a maximum
of 128 ports; up to eight ODIN units can be
connected via an optical Inter-Frame Link to
create a single matrix with up to 1024 ports.
Additional features include redundant power
supplies and five cooling fans (two of which
are redundant). The unit's energy-efficient
design uses less than 50 watts of power,
minimising operating costs.
The front panel has a colour graphical user
interface based on icons to support the most
common setup and configuration tasks. The
AZedit and IPedit software applications have
been updated to support ODIN for more
complex configuration tasks.
Whether the user wants to expand intercom
functionality with an IP-capable system at a
regional theatre or large house of worship,
or whether the goal is to start streamlining
a larger system's footprint and cost of
operation in an OB van or broadcast control
room, ODIN stands apart as the most
comprehensive intercom solution RTS has
ever made... all in 1RU.
ODIN combines the functionality of multiple
RTS technologies into one future-proof
package, including the capacity of two OMI64 cards (64-ports each). This means up
to 128 channels of digital audio over IP in
OMNEO format - fully compatible with Dante
and AES67. There are also connections for
up to 16 analogue keypanels, an Inter-FrameLink connectivity for linking multiple frames
together, a powerful master controller, built-in
connectors for analogue two-wire partyline,
and a redundant power supply for an extra
layer of protection against failure.
Other key features include a compact 1RU
form factor which makes ODIN perfect for
OB vans and other applications where space
is at a premium. In addition, with built-in,
Dante-enabled, AES67 / AES70-compatible
OMNEO technology, the system makes the
transition to IP easy. A single ODIN unit is
scalable from 16 to 128 ports, while port
expansion via software upgrade is possible
with no additional hardware required. Up to
eight units can be optically interconnected for
a total of 1024 ports.
Aesthetically, ODIN features a colour
display with intuitive icon-based graphical
user interface and five cooling fans, two of
which are redundant.
Two XLR-connectors, for wired partyline
in one of three user-selectable formats, is
included while the energy-efficient design
means each unit uses less than 50 watts of
power for lower cost of ownership.
With connectors for OMNEO IP
technology, analogue two-wire and four-wire,
ODIN supports IP-based ROAMEO wireless
systems and KP-Series keypanels, and, as
always, analogue RTS legacy keypanels.
Dante-enabled OMNEO is standard on
RJ-45 connectors or is available using
digital intercom matrix
