  • Modifying our AMS Select series: Part 2: AMS8

    The Ward-Beck team is going full speed ahead with our AMS Select series redesigns, and we are now tackling the AMS8-2A 2RU monitoring system!

    The greatest challenge is that this redesign is constrained by the limitations of the old design. As much as we can, we are trying to integrate new design elements and technical improvements into the old design, rather than replace the old redesign entirely. This helps us to retain backwards compatibility as much as possible, and reduce redesign cost. In some way, this is more challenging than starting from scratch. For instance, the speaker grills on the front panel had to be designed into a position that is optimal for sound, but not interfering with any screwing/fastening locations from the old design. Likewise, the new speakers and tweeters had to be positioned so that they could co-exist with the circuit boards and LEDs on the front panel. Yet, at the end of the day, the newly redesigned system is already starting to sound good!

  • Modifying our AMS Select series: Part 1: AMS4

    Ward-Beck's R&D team has a new project! We are working on modifying our AMS Select series of audio meters.

    Over the past year, Ward-Beck has been working on perfecting the speaker design used in our audio meter/monitor solutions. The new speaker design has been perfected, and our first use of the new design was in our AMS2 Mini Cue Speakers. The AMS2's sound performance have been well-received by our customers, and we are now working to redesign the rest of our Select series to incorporate the new speaker design.

    First up, the AMS4 Audio Monitoring System!

    Our redesign is still in the preliminary stages, but take a sneak peek at some of the stages of redesign, and what we expect the finished product to look like.

  • Mission AoIP: A fact-finding journey to New York.

    Our Engineering team went down south to New York this week on a fact-finding mission about Audio over IP. We had the chance to meet with, and interview, some awesome folks from ABC, NBC and CBS. We even got the chance to peek into an ABC mobile unit covering the Papal Visit!

    Most of all, we gathered some very crucial information about AoIP, and what it means to our customers. This is going to be of great help to us in designing products designed for AoIP.
