Axon helps bring Dolby E to BSG for event flyaways
Axon Digital Design’s products proved a selling point for Singapore-based Broadcast Solutions Group (BSG) when it decided to upgrade its flyaway systems to incorporate Dolby Digital. After extensive testing, BSG invested in Axon Synapse Dolby E Encoders (DBE08) and Multiformat Dolby Stream Decoders (DBD28). These are now being deployed in flyaway kits around the globe where they are helping to capture live events destined for High Definition broadcast.
“Within our business, we had a very stringent spec to follow to deliver the best quality production to our clients,” says Saaed Izadi, the CEO of Broadcast Solutions Group. “We tested many systems on the market and decided to go with Ason’s Synapse Dolby solution as it perfectly fits our mission-critical needs.”
By their very nature, live events leave no room for error. Therefore the flyaway systems used to capture them have to be furnished with exceptionally durable and dependable equipment.
“Our flyaway kit needs to be moved from one place to another within a very short time frame,” Mr Izadi adds. “Equipment for these must be compact, reliable, robust and capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions. We are pleased with Axon’s product quality, and with the technical support provided by its Singapore Branch office.”
With headquarters in Singapore and offices in Malaysia, India, Abu Dhabi and UK, BSG provides a range of enterprise broadcasting equipment and services to empower every aspect of production. Its systems have been used to cover a wide variety of news and entertainment programming, including the FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifiers and other major sporting events.
