  • The first ever Networked Mic Stand- AES67 conversion on the go!

    Ward-Beck was proud to unveil the first ever networked mic stand at the 2017 NAB Show, where it proved to be a showstopper at our booth.

    The first of its kind, our networked mic stand is an all-in-one networked device that houses a microphone pre-amp, analog to digital converter and AES67 stream builder, all in the stand itself. The mic stand is a regular straight stand, with a weighted base that houses the audio equipment. The microphone provides analog audio input, and RJ45 AES67/Ravenna stream comes out. The gain is set remotely using our new PreMote Control.

  • On site at Houston pre-NAB interop testing

    Our engineering team is still on site at the Fox Woodlands pre-NAB testing sessions, where our AoIP products are being vetted for interoperability with the networking products of over 40 other companies in the industry, in order to prepare them for demonstration at the Interoperability Zone at NAB 2017 in the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

    Ward-Beck hopes to be part of the Interoperability Zone at NAB 2017. Our company will also be exhibiting at Booth C1941 in Central Hall during NAB, from so come find us there from April 24-27, 2017!

  • 1st day pre-NAB interoperability testing!

    Here were are, on Day One of the pre-NAB interoperability testing at Houston, where over 70 technical experts from over 40 companies have journeyed with an aim to successfully validate cross-vendor interoperability of their networked technology products.

    Ward-Beck is proud to be one of the companies participating in the Houston test, and - when we hopefully pass the testing stage - we will also be at the NAB 2017 Interoperability Zone, at the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

  • The Calm before the Storm: Setting up the pre-NAB JT-NM interop session in Houston

    Everything is ready to go in Houston, Texas, where over 70 technical experts from over 40 companies will be aiming to successfully validate cross-vendor interoperability of their networked technology products. This event is in preparation for the Interoparibility Zone at NAB 2017, where products of different vendors will be brought together in a professionally verified, cross-vendor interoperability demo.

    The overall aim of the Interoperability Event at NAB 2017 is to raise awareness of the advantages and versatility of networked technology, and showcase what a large variety of products are at a customer's fingertips, which are technically verified to work well with each other.

    Ward-Beck is proud to be one of the companies participating in the Houston test, and at the NAB 2017 Interoperability Zone, at the Las Vegas Convention Centre. As well, we will be demonstrating more products from our lineup at our own booth, C1941 in Central Hall, during NAB, so come find us there, from April 24-27, 2017!

    The setup looks peaceful now, but crunch time is almost here. Who knows how this place will look once all the testing is done? Stay tuned to find out!

  • Introducing the preMO mic preamp!

    The future of Audio over IP is here!

    The dream of networked microphones is a reality with Ward-Beck Systems’ preMO-A1 microphone preamplifier.  Combining 50 years of pre-amplifier and format conversion experience, the preMO-A1 is the convergence of analog audio, digital conversion, and IP based networking.  Designed with input from trailblazers of broadcast system engineering, the preMO-A1 is a forward-thinking AES67 (Ravenna®) network audio device.  Microphone in, multicast out.

     

    Industry features

    The PreMo-A1 is an all-in-one network on-ramp;  combining a microphone pre-amp, analog to digital converter, AES67 stream builder and network interface controller.  Optimized for ultra low noise amplification, a CMOS controlled pre-amplifier accepts microphone and line level signals with a uniformed frequency response. Condenser microphones are energized by 48 Volt phantom power.  Addressable variable gain of up to 63dB can be applied by the PreMo-A1.  The PreMo-A1 supports  sampling rates of 44.1, 48 or 96 kHz at 16-bit or 24-bit depth.  Greater than 122dB of dynamic range is achieved with an innovative analog to digital channel summation technique.  A low latency AES67 stream is packetized and transmitted through a standard RJ45 connector.  Synchronization, media clock selection, network transport, session description and connection management are handled by a friendly graphical user web interface. In alpha release, an intuitive set of local controls adjust the sensitivity and phantom power while being displayed by a backlit on-board OLED display.  


    Simplified wiring
    The PreMo-A1 can powered directly by an external power adapter, and is also a PoE-compatible device. With Power over Ethernet, a single ethernet cable carries the data signal and provides operating power, eliminating the need for external power. Unlike frame-based interfaces, the PreMo-A1 is the source, not the destination.  Deploying standard networking cable and switches decreases the cost of infrastructure installation significantly. Housed in a lightweight enclosure, the PreMo-A1 stays close to the sound source, eliminating the threat of RFI. The rugged aluminum case is built to withstand the rigorous 24/7/365 work hours of the broadcast industry.

    Visit us at IBC 2016, at the MNA Pavilion Stand # 8.C94, and hear the PreMo-A1 in action!
