Following the company's concept of integrated displays in the panel keys, the 1100 series features high-resolution color OLEDs. With 65,000 colors and a resolution of 140 dpi, the new displays are able to show up to eight detailed characters of up to 24 by 24 pixels, making it well suited for displaying icons. Definable marker colors for the keys complete the labeling options and provide instant function identification and signalization, such as for incoming calls.

The panel provides individual rotary encoders to adjust the listen level of every talk key, says the company. Furthermore, all 1100 Series control key panels provide five dedicated function keys, a built-in high-power loudspeaker with improved audio quality with higher volume, an XLR headset connector, and a removable gooseneck microphone. Three GPIs and three GPOs for system-wide programming come standard. Two sets of balanced line-level audio inputs and outputs are also standard, while an expansion slot for future expansion modules prepares the control panel for future technology developments.

BNC and Cat-5 connectors are available for the digital connection to the matrix via AES. A second AES audio channel allows the panel to transport broadcast-quality audio in addition to the intercom application.

The circuit design of the 1100 series panel results in a compact design with an integrated power supply. According to Riedel officials, the panel consumes 50 percent less power than the 1000 series and generates less heat.

"The intercom world as we know it is changing dramatically. Demands for the more flexible labeling of talk keys and additional functionality are growing," said Thomas Riedel, managing director of Riedel Communications, in a statement. "With the Artist 1100 series control panels, we are able to provide solutions to all of these demands. As studio technology integration is progressing, we see intercom panels becoming a more universal user interface, which could also include audio or video routing."
