Las Vegas, NV (April 18, 2016):
- New addition to the KP-Series, suitable for desktop and wall-mount operation
- OMNEO IP technology and Dante compatibility ensure high-quality sound
- 16 position multi-function lever keys and high-resolution color display for user-friendly operation
- Fully backwards-compatible with all existing RTS matrices
RTS is proud to introduce the new DKP-4016 desktop/wall-mount intercom keypanel at the 2016 NAB show. The DKP-4016 expands the KP-Series keypanel family, which marks a new milestone within the RTS product range by combining HD color displays and improved single-key operation - all in a modern design. The KP-Series is suitable for a wide range of intercom applications such as broadcast production studios, theater and sports venues, houses of worship and outside broadcast (OB) trucks.
The DKP-4016 is available as both as a desktop and a wall-mount version and can be operated with all existing RTS matrices. This is ensured by a comprehensive set of connectors, including general-purpose input/output (GPIO) and rear connector (RC). RJ45, Ethercon and fiber module (SFP) sockets enable full connectivity to either analog four-wire or digital IP networks; two different headset connectors (four-pin and five-pin) and one analog auxiliary (AUX) input offer numerous connectivity options.
The DKP-4016 features OMNEO IP technology on board. OMNEO is based on two key technologies - the media transmission component Dante from Audinate Pty, Australia and the system-control component OCA (Open Control Architecture). By utilizing open public standards, OMNEO provides the highest level of interoperability, flexibility, reliability, resilience and future-proof technology. OMNEO enables a secure setup at a competitively low system cost due to the use of standard IT components, simplified installation and lower maintenance costs.
Like all new KP-Series devices, the DKP-4016 features a full-color, wide-angle high-definition display, which is always readable - even under difficult lighting conditions. It offers superior color, contrast, resolution and viewing angle and is capable of displaying Latin, Cyrillic and simplified Chinese characters. The 16 four-way lever keys are ergonomically designed for the specific use as desktop/wall-mount versions and provide listen/talk and cross-point level functions.
The DKP-4016 delivers superior audio quality, free of noise and other audible artifacts. Sturdy housing and field-tested lever-keys also contribute to improved usability. A lockable power connector ensures interruption-free operation, especially in the wall-mount configuration. Rubber feet at the bottom of the device provide maximum stability. The DKP-4016 will accept software upgrades as new functions are added.
Available worldwide in spring 2016.
