About Snell

Snell was formed in 2009 through the combination of Pro-Bel and Snell & Wilcox, two market-leading and innovative players in the global film & broadcast market. Both Pro-Bel and Snell & Wilcox have long track records of success in this market, and a number of industry ''firsts'' in both products and technologies.

The combination of Pro-Bel and Snell & Wilcox brings together a strong history of innovation and groundbreaking technical achievements, including a significant portfolio of intellectual property in image processing and content management. This includes routing, switching, conversion, media management, modular infrastructure, control & monitoring, automation and file-based workflows.

Snell's product range encompasses many of the core building blocks of the modern broadcast facility, and offers a seamless migration path to future technologies.

Mission-critical components in television broadcast and professional video operations that provide the core connectivity for all the signals in a facility.

Modular Infrastructure
The digital backbone of a TV facility, providing a wide variety of core video and audio processing operations that enable broadcasters to adapt seamlessly to changing requirements.

Video Format & Standards Conversion
Frame rate standards converters enable the international distribution of TV content, while format converters (e.g. HD up/down/cross converters) enable broadcasters to adapt their operations to the latest service offerings.

Production Switchers
Mission-critical elements of the live TV production environment, production switchers are used to cut and mix video sources in real-time. Primary applications include news, sports, current events, talk shows, etc.

Master Control
Mission critical components of live television and playout facilities that manage feeds going in to and out of the plant. The master control switcher is ordinarily one of the last points in the broadcast plant before a signal goes out live to air, and therefore directly controls what viewers sees at home.

Powerful software system that is used to control the entire television transmission environment. Automation controls all the equipment and systems involved in the playout of TV programming.

Media Management
Comprehensive software suite for managing file-based workflows, supporting many business models including multi-site operations.

Control & Monitoring
Intelligent control and monitoring systems, integrating both stream and file-based workflows, and providing self-healing capabilities.
