  • We've been busy at WBS

    2013 saw our move to new premises at 945 Middlefield Road in the Steeles Avenue and Markham Road area of Toronto.

    In 2013, we celebrated 46 years in business and the 20th year of ownership by Colleen and Eugene Johnson, a truly remarkable feat in the history of Canadian broadcast manufacturers.

    We have been busy making improvements to our designs to provide greater versatility and cost savings to our clients. Products where improvements have been made include the IMP Series (AES impedance converter baluns), PODS Series, AMS Audio Monitor Series and Demuxer Series.

    Improvements to PODs

    POD10A ThreeQuarter

    All PODs are going through a migration to SMT designs. This transition allows us to update designs and to control costs. Pricing of POD products remain unchanged. We have added more versatility to AES switching with the replacement of POD10 by POD10A (in both 75 and 110 Ohm versions) which now offers an eight by one or dual four by one switchers in the same package at the same cost. POD12A replaces POD12 offering an eight output AES distribution amplifier or dual four output distribution amplifiers with SRC (sample rate conversion).

    IMP Series


    A slicked up design for the entire product line allows us to drastically reduce the price of the single in-line converters (IMP-1F and IMP-1M). The new design also allows us to increase the panelized versions of the BNC to XLR from 12 circuits in a 1 RU rack mount panel to 16 circuits at the same price! Now available are the following models:

    IMP-1F - providing a single 110 Ohm XLR-F connector to 75 Ohm, BNC connector
    IMP-1M - providing a single 75 Ohm BNC connector to 110 Ohm XLR-M connector
    IMP-16F - providing sixteen 110 Ohm XLR-F connectors to 75 Ohm, BNC connectors in 1RU
    IMP-16M - providing sixteen 75 Ohm, BNC connectors to 110 Ohm XLR-M connectors in 1RU
    IMP-8M8F - providing eight each of XLR-M and XLR-F to BNC connectors in 1RU
    IMP-20 - providing 20 75 Ohm BNC to110 Ohm Phoenix 3-pin pluggable connectors in 1RU
    IMP-20A - providing 20 75 Ohm BNC to110 Ohm Phoenix 3-pin pluggable connectors located on the same panel surface in 2RU

    IMP-8M8F XLR

    All impedance circuits with XLR-F and Phoenix connectors can be factory configured to add a 10 dB loss pad. This is desirable when an AES signal will be distributed using an analog video amplifier.

    DEMUX 4

    A new 3G dual input Demuxer can now be added to all our monitor and metering equipment. DEMUX 4 will also be available in a "throw down" package and as a stand-alone POD. Keep watching for news.

    What else?...
