Industrial Ethernet cordsets/patch cords
Hirschmann Media Line: When Hirschmann Industrial Ethernet cordsets and are used in conjunction with Belden's line of Hirschmann Industrial Ethernet switches and Belden's Industrial Ethernet cable, a complete (end-to-end) industrial solution is realized. These cordsets and patch cords are manufactured using Belden's patented Bonded-Pair technology, meaning the cables have the individual insulated conductors bonded together along their longitudinal axis to assure uniform conductor-to-conductor spacing for maximum electrical integrity. These cables are also chemical- and temperature-resistant and incorporate rugged RJ-45 or over molded M12 (IP67 rated) industrial connectors to ensure reliable performance in extreme or mission-critical environments.

Nexserv: Nexserv server cabinet is designed to integrate equipment, cabling, power and cooling in a way that is smart, effective and saves installation time. It was designed especially to handle the extra weight capacity, power, cooling and cabling needs of both today's and tomorrow's server applications. Nexserv's most unique feature is the X design of the top and bottom of the structure. It eliminates the need to pull or push cables over or through port holes or around the frame. Allowing cables to be moved or laid in saves time and effort and reduces the chance of potential damage to cables. Easy access to the front, rear and sides of the cabinet make cabling a simple task. With the ability to split the rear rails to accommodate differing depths of equipment, Nexserv is a multi-platform enclosure capable of being useful after the next technology change.
Surround monitoring system
Studiocomm 76DB/77B: By eliminating the need for an add-on analog-to-digital converter, the fidelity of the 5.1 digital signals from the source to the loudspeaker is maintained. Broadcasters can realize the full benefit of their investment in digital, both in loudspeakers and routing infrastructure. The Studiocomm 76DB/77B, comprised of a Model 77B control console connected to a rack-mounted Model 76DB central controller, provides two 5.1 surround inputs, three stereo inputs, along with pre-fade and post-fade 5.1 surround outputs. Flexible source selection, Dolby E dialnorm support, and a two-channel auxiliary output for special applications such as monitoring site-event cue signals, as well as downmix, channel solo, level adjustment, reference level, and dim, make this system suited for broadcast master control applications.
Multi-channel BLITS tone generator
RB-TGHD: The RB-TGHD is an 8-channel audio tone generator with line identification for multi-channel audio systems, including BLITS 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound. By using a wide range of industry standard tone sequences, channel identification and associated levels can be determined easily. Correct channel configuration in fold-down mixes can also be highlighted when a broadcaster needs to mix several audio channels into a stereo feed. Available tone sequences include EBU R49, GLITS and BLITS stereo line-up, EBU R49 and BLITS channel identification and a standard Phase check. The RB-TGHD caters for 2-, 4-, 6- and 8-channel configurations and all of the available audio tone sequences for each channel configuration can be cycled through automatically, or selected manually. A loop mode allows patterns of tones to be repeated. A bank of four pushbuttons on the front panel sets these options and the associated LEDs indicate the current setting. A set of eight LEDs on the front panel indicate audio presence for each output channel.
RTW Radio-Technische Werkstatten
Loudness Family: The Loudness Family, with its Surround Control, Surround Monitor, and Digital Monitor, now includes an integrated loudness display conforming to the ITU BS.1771 guideline as a standard feature. With this line-up, RTW now offers easy-to-use solutions for monitoring the loudness of stereo, multichannel and surround signals in a wide range of applications, as a complement or an alternative to conventional peak meters. Users can select integrated loudness measurement, as per ITU BS.1771 for stereo signals, as an alternative to the usual peak meter bar graphs. This feature can be activated quickly and easily via suitably programmed presets.
