Belar is thinking small at the big show.
The company has announced low-cost versions of its FMHD-1 and FMCS-1 monitors.
The FMHD-1 Lite and FMCS-1 Lite are said to be 40% lower in price and half-the size (height-wise).
Of course they don’t quite have all the same features of the larger, pricier, brethren but they do include most of the popular features such as “all pertinent meters, alarms and enhanced monitoring features … including Belar’s Automatic Delay Correction software for managing HD Diversity Delay.”
Belar also says that both units are aimed at IP remote operation.
Belar CEO Mark Grant said, “Almost every significant RF component today is accessible from the studio, an office or even from home. … Engineering visits to RF plants happen less frequently, and there is little point in driving out to sites daily or weekly to adjust your processor, mod monitor and transmitter. These new monitors give engineers a less expensive option without losing features and sacrificing performance.”
