  • Fitting new prototype panel in metalshop

    Prototyping another custom Eurorack panel for a satisfied repeat customer. This panel was made in our in-house metalshop. We prototype it, and fit it over the populated module to make sure everything lines up properly. Then, once we're sure everything fits, we can proceed to doing the final panel with painting and silkscreening.

  • Find Ward-Beck's AES67/ST2110 products on demo @ IBC 2018 (IP Showcase, Room E106)

    Ward-Beck's AES67/ST2110 networked audio equipment will be demonstrated in action at the IP Showcase, at the upcoming IBC 2018 convention. This year's IBC will be held in RAI Amsterdam from September 13th to 18th, 2018.

    Among the equipment that we will demonstrate at the convention, is our newly-released PreMO-222. The PreMo-222 is a dual mic/line pre-amplifier with PoE capability. It is AES67 and ST2110 compliant. PreMo-222 is perfect for talk show radio, reporters on the go, live-casting, live sports commentary from the stadium, and many other such applications. It was most recently used by CTV to record ambient audience sounds at the 2018 iHeartRadio MMVAs awards show held in Toronto.

    Below is a photo of the PreMo-222 setup at the iHeartRadio MMVAs. Out of two racks, we managed to do the entire ambient audience recording for an internationally watched awards show.
