NAB Sneak Peek: BW Broadcast Raises the Curtain
Equipment maker BW Broadcast is bringing to the NAB Show a large number of new products, fitting several niches.
Several products are part of a theme the company calls, Encore.
The Ariane Encore is the NAB debut of the Ariane under BW Broadcast’s banner. The leveler is adding some features while retaining the window-gating processing of the Ariane Sequel. It will also sport eh BW Broadcast look.
The RBRX Encore is the next iteration of the RBRX 1 rebroadcast receiver. The Encore version offers full diversity of dual tuners. The RDS functionality has been expanded. It is IP-capable. It also uses BW’s DSPX audio limiter and stereo generator. There are improved backup capabilities for AAC and MP3 files and USB devices.
The Vertus Encore (shown) is a “single box” translator solution. That is, it carries onboard a rebroadcast receiver and transmission equipment. It has several other BW features such as field-serviceable parts.
BW transmitters are also getting the Encore touch. They’ll range in power from 5 W–3,000 W with slide-in exciter cards, power supplies and BW’s Gold Clamp quick-change transistors. Audio backup will be a standard feature along with several methods of monitoring, alerting and logging.
In addition, other BW lines will be getting the Encore treatment.
