PreMo

Over the years, Ward-Beck has strived to be a company that steadily innovates to meet the demands of the future of the audio industry, while sticking to our old values of quality and reliability. Combining 50 years of pre-amplifier and format conversion experience, we are proud to introduce the PreMo series of networked audio devices.

Win a chance to beta-test the PreMo-222!

WHAT IS THE PREMO SERIES?

The PreMo series of networked microphone preamps represent the convergence of analog audio, digital conversion, and IP based networking. Designed with input from trailblazers of broadcast system engineering, our PreMO devices are forward-thinking, flexible in usage, and built to withstand the rigorous 24/7/365 work hours of the broadcast industry. All the devices currently in our PreMO lineup are POE-powered, AES67-compliant, and AES70-compliant.

PreMo Series Current Product Lineup

Currently forming our line up of PreMO AES67/70-compliant POE-powered networked audio devices are:

 

 

 

PreMo-A1 (Prototype - not commercially available)

PreMo-A1

  •           • AES67/AES70-compliant
  •           • PoE capability
  •           • 2 networked mic inputs
  •           • Volume controls
  •           • Information display screen

PreMo-A1

The PreMo-A1 is where it all began. It is the prototype device that began our foray into networked audio devices. We learned a lot through the R&D put into crafting this device, both in terms of the hardware and software side of networked audio design. What we learned was used to perfect the design of our commercially available PreMo-222, PreMo-212 and AMS2-2X2 devices.

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 controllercan powered directly by an external power adapter. 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.

   
 

PreMo-222

PreMo-222

  •           • AES67/AES70-compliant
  •           • PoE capability
  •           • 2 networked mic inputs
  •           • 2 headset output
  •           • 2 independent volume controls
  •           • Information display screen

PreMo-222

The PreMo-222, a dual microphone preamplifier and dual stereo headset driver like no other, is a real conversation piece. Communicating with AES67 / Ravenna / ST2110 protocols, the PreMo-222 connects performance to producers, voices to ears, talent to task and audio with networks. Power Over Ethernet plus redundant local supply ensures broadcast reliability. Remote control via AES70 allows level adjustment, filter insertion, phantom powering, local mixing and more. Once digitized and packetized, the microphone signals are ready to be distributed on modern production AES67 / Ravenna / ST2110 networks. Audio signals on the network can be received and listened to through the exceptional headset drivers. As the name suggests, the PreMo-222 has two mics to network input, 2 headset output, and 2 independent volume controls. Combining these features with its networking capabilities, it is basically a one-stop shop for decentralized radio production. The 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.

   
 

PreMo-212

PreMo-212

  •           • AES67/AES70-compliant
  •           • PoE capability
  •           • 2 networked mic inputs
  •           • 1 headset output
  •           • Volume control
  •           • Fixed analog line output
  •           • Information display screen

PreMo-212

The PreMo-212 is modified version of the PreMo-222. It has the same features as the PreMo-222, except for the headset output at the back, which is replaced by a fixed analog line output.

   
 

AMS2-2X2

AMS2-2X2

  •           • AES67/AES70-compliant
  •           • PoE capability
  •           • 2 networked mic inputs
  •           • Volume control
  •           • Speaker output
  •           • Information display screen

AMS2-2X2

The AMS-2X2 is a rackmountable 2-channel networked mic preamplifier. This 1RU device is POE-powered and AES67 and AES70 compliant. The AMS-2X2 has two mics to network input and speaker outputs, as well as volume control. It is similar in function and applicability to the PreMO-222, with the added benefit of being a rackmount unit from the getgo.
