Bel Digital launches MKII monitor for OBs and flyaways
Bel Digital’s BM-A1-4SHD four channel audio monitor/de-embedder is a favourite with broadcasters and all of its features are now available in a larger 2U chassis, providing increased definition in metering and an increase in SPL. With a reduction of both chassis depth (down to 200 mm) and overall weight, the new BM-A2-4SHD MKII is good for OB or flyaway applications.
The BM-A2-4SHD MKII can de-embed any group of four channels of audio from one of two SDI sources (up to 3G SDI) and display the levels on the front panel meters, as well as providing stereo audio monitoring of any combination of the four channels.
In addition to the auto-detecting SDI inputs, the BM-A2-4SHD MKII has four balanced XLR analogue inputs and two AES3id BNCs. A re-clocked loop-through output is available for the selected SDI source, providing a convenient and cost-effective method of switching SDI feeds to an external monitor. Channels 1 to 4 of the selected source are also routed to two AES3id outputs. Therefore providing format conversion and SDI de-embedding facilities. In addition, the stereo audio monitor mix is available as a separate balanced feed at a pair of XLRs.
Very simple to set up and use, like the BM-A1-4SHD, all source selection and main monitoring setup is done from individual controls on the front panel, without any need for menu navigation.
