Bel Digital Group launches new AMUs

Bel Digital has announced the launch of two new four-channel AMUs (audio monitoring units), which are the beginning of a new range that brings Bel’s cost-effective four-channel monitoring units right up to date.
The products feature a variety of connections for all broadcast applications. These include:

    • Two auto sensing SDI inputs SD/HD/3G, with a dedicated switchable SDI output to provide a feed to an external video monitor. Thus negating the need for using external SDI switches.
    • Two AES3-id pair inputs (four channels)
    • Four XLR balanced analogue inputs
    • XLR L-R analogue monitor outputs, following speaker selection
    • Two AES3-id pair outputs (four channels follow the source selected on the bargraph meters allowing, for example, an SDI group to be de-embedded)

Both units feature Bel’s intuitive front panel designs and come in a space-saving 200 mm depth chassis, enabling the monitors to be easily mounted in OB vehicles. Housed in a 1U 19” rack mount unit, the BM-A1-4SHD features a three-speaker system providing audible reproduction of impressive clarity. The BM-AV2-4SHD is housed in a 2U 19″ rack mount unit and comes with a five inch video monitor and 52 segment LED bargraph meters.

Motama adds ad-replacement, HEVC, Dolby Digital Plus, subtitling and geo-blocking to its server suite.

At this year’s IBC, Motama will introduce its new product AdCaster. AdCaster enables regional and targeted adverts for live TV services, either as full replacement or for augmenting the original content. AdCaster supports IPTV multicast as well as Internet / Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming.

This allows for converting high-quality live streams with Dolby Digital or Dolby Digital Plus audio to AAC format, which is a major requirement for reducing the bandwidth requirements and for adaptive streaming protocols.

Motama will also showcase support for subtitles for Internet/OTT streaming, which allows service providers to fulfill the legal requirements for subtitling. Motama’s approach for adding subtitles to the actual content directly offers 100% compatibility for all existing devices.

Motama’s product line for Internet/OTT streaming, PolyCaster, now supports many new features. IP filtering and geo-blocking enables access control for providers of live streams. User authentication allows for protecting and monetizing content.
