Solid-state FM amplifiers
RB 5000: The Bext FB Series, previously available in the 2kW and 3.5kW power levels, is now available also in the 5kW version, still in the same extremely compact size. In just four standard rack spaces, Bext provides broadcasters with a remarkably space-efficient FM Transmitter: a 5kW so small and lightweight you can carry it with you and install virtually anywhere. Highly energy efficient, the FB 5000 will also cut down on your utility bills. Like all other FB Series FM Transmitters from Bext, the enclosure is solid stainless steel, and the unit offers flexibility, ease of operation and local or remote control through user friendly menus, all backed up by the Bext reliability and customer service.
Broadcast traffic management
Broadcast Traffic Systems (BTS)
BTS Express: BTS Express is a downloadable broadcast traffic management system based on the BTS Enterprise application. An expandable, modular package, Express provides traffic and ad-sales management for single-channel or multi-channel presentation suites and playout centers.
Three-way DSP system
8260A: The 8260A features advances in audio driver technology and Genelec's proprietary Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDCTM) mid/high driver technology, which prevents acoustical diffractions. It combines a coaxial driver with a modern waveguide technology ensuring that drivers couple coherently over their full operating bandwidth, as well as creating coincident mid-frequency/high-frequency point source. The 8260A also features Genelec DSP signal processing responsible for all loudspeaker functions.
Blue Sky International
SUB 212: Blue Sky's SUB 212 is a sealed box, dual 12", push-pull, 400W subwoofer. It features an anechoic frequency response of 25Hz to 200Hz, +/-3dB. In addition, the SUB 212 also has built-in 2.1 bass management electronics with both a fourth order 80Hz Linkwitz-Riley low-pass filter and a second order 80Hz high-pass filter perfectly matched to the response of the SAT 8 (the SUB 212 is also compatible with the SAT 12, SAT 6.5 and SAT 5). The SUB 212's push-pull configuration is designed to increase output and reduce distortion. A push-pull subwoofer uses two drivers: one mounted facing forward, the second mounted backward with the magnet facing out.
Studio Master 468: This high-bias studio tape offers excellent dynamic range over the entire frequency spectrum, minimal print-through, high level uniformity up to the highest frequencies, excellent winding even at high speeds allowing flangeless operation and archiveability, long term stability.
Europort EPA900: The Europort EPA900 PA system is a complete sound reinforcement system in a small suitcase for ease of transportation. It features 900W of power, eight channels, 10" woofers and 1.35" aluminum-diaphragm compression drivers, a 24-bit stereo FX processor with 100 presents, feedback detection, four mic preamps with switchable +48V phantom power for condenser mics, stereo aux inputs, and an integrated storage compartment for mics, cables and accessories.
IPCA1: Using latest-generation IP and audio coding technologies, the IPCA1 was designed for stable operation with the lowest latency and best audio performance possible based on network characteristics. To keep latency as low as possible, it uses a proprietary, dynamically adjustable jitter buffer that adjusts to network conditions, providing 24-bit audio, with up to 48kHz sampling, at the lowest possible delay at all times. Supporting UDP, UDP Multicast and TCP/IP protocols, the unit includes a range of low delay codecs operating at bitrates as low as 32kb/s with fewer quality/bit-rate trade-offs.
