For the first time ever, BW Broadcast will be represented at the International Technological Exhibition of Radio and Television in Peru. We are being represented by Lily Massari, who is the Latin American Sale Representative for our US master distributor, SCMS Inc.
The exhibition will take place on 10th and 11th October at the Technological University of Peru.
The purpose of this exhibition is to promote the knowledge of new technologies in equipment for radio, television, cable TV and telecommunications domestic and imported. To circulate new trends and technological innovation in broadcasting as well as develop workshops and hold training sessions on the use and management of new technologies.
Attendees at this exhibition will include owners, managers, executives and engineers of radio and telecommunications throughout Peru.
We will have our DSPXtra processor on display- With six-band limiter, an integrated Ariane RMS leveler and look-ahead final limiting. The dual processing paths makes the DSPXtra-FM two processors in one (Analogue and Digital). It also has Front Panel LED audio metering and front panel USB interface to aid setup and operation. Our processor range comes in different ranges to suit any budget and can accommodate the FM, AM and HD market.
If you are going to be attending the show or would like more information on us or any of our products, then get in touch here.
We have spent well in excess of $300,000 developing our revolutionary ATE (Automated Test System) so far, and the investment in quality control looks set to continue. It can test a whole multitude of RF and audio products and log the results to a central database that supports production batch analysis and easy recall of a certain units test results, enabling a higher level of production control and support for our customers.
Our products are tested to the max, so our customer’s patience isn’t!
Managing Director Scott Incz had this to say: “It’s been two years in the making, and it has been a long and winding road to get to this point, but i’m so pleased to have identical twin ‘virtual’ employees who are more accurate than their human colleagues. They work long hours, never take lunch and they remember every test they’ve ever carried out! It would take a highly trained test engineer several hours to do what these systems can do in 15 minutes, and that’s probably to do half the tests without logging all the test results. It really is a pleasure to watch them at work and see all of the equipment being full automated as part of the computer controlled test routines. I’m looking forward to adding a third system later this year to boost our capabilities further.”
Production manager Ricardo Da Silva added: “Prior to installing our new ATE systems, we spent hours checking every piece of equipment and inevitably mistakes would occur. These identical ATE systems have made a huge difference to our productivity and the quality of the product that we ship.“
ATE hard at work.
All the movers and shakers in the broadcast industry descend on Amsterdam once again for IBC (International Broadcast Convention). Hardened veterans throw further acronyms like; DAM, AMS, CAU and NO.4 around like no one’s business, in the build up to this international (European) trade show.
500 Euro a night ‘last minute’ hotel rooms are common place when IBC comes to town, so don’t leave it too late or you’ll find a bed for the night, harder to come by than an outside table in one of Rembrantplein’s many popular ‘people watching’ cafés! Worst case, you can rent a bed for 30 minutes at a time in the De Wallen area – just east of the main DAM Square.
BW Broadcast has been exhibiting at IBC for a decade now and we are always excited to meet many of our European customers face to face. This year is monumental because we get to show off the future of BW Broadcast with the European debut of our ‘Encore platform’ and products. On show will be multiple new Encore products, including transmitters, translators, processors and receivers. Several of these products won ‘Best of Show Awards’ at NAB in Las Vegas.
A first for IBC, is the news of MPX over AES on all Encore products. MPX over AES eliminates degradation of the composite FM signal by keeping it digital all the way through the chain. The MPX over AES feature will be available on all FM transmitters, Receivers, RDS encoders, Stereo Generators, audio over IP and audio processors.
Another 1st in our industry… All Encore products will come with a ‘no strings’ 10 year warranty. Yes, you read that right – 10 years.
Unlike other manufacturers, this 10 year warranty is not linked to an expensive yearly service plan, you won’t need to have the product connected to the internet or have the product installed by a engineer who has visited our factory and left with a clip art certificate to hang on their wall. It really is what it is – a 10 year warranty.
Of course, ‘acts of god’ and ‘beer spills’ are not covered, but this is as close to a ‘peace of mind’ free lunch as you are ever going to get!
CEO Scott Incz had this to say on it: “Although the accountants are not happy, and eyebrows are raised in the office – this huge step of offering a 10 year no strings warranty underpins our strategy of putting the customer first. With our renowned customer service, customers already know that buying BW Broadcast is a safe bet, but with other manufacturers starting to offer three and five year warranties, the time is right with the release of Encore to raise the bar and put our money where our mouth is.”
Of course, we will be demonstrating our ‘Award Winning’ V2 transmitters and DSPX audio processors. On display will also be a new product, a re-broadcast version of our popular TX300 V2. With an internal re-broadcast tuner, the TX300 V2 is a single box translator and re-broadcast solution that is a fraction of the cost of the traditional 2-box system.
So make sure you don’t miss this opportunity to drop by and see what’s new at BW Broadcast, Hall 8, stand E74 (the usual spot!)
