dB Broadcast Reports Successful Year So Far

News Image
dB Broadcast has reported a very successful first half to its financial year, with a record order intake and some high profile projects signed up.

Most of the new work involves large IP-based broadcast projects for live production, providing clients with the ability to support remote and local production using full IP to SMPTE 2110, resulting in greater flexibility and scalability.

Current projects include: new headquarters for BBC Wales in Cardiff; new production and playout facilities across multiple European countries (details of the client and project are under NDA and have not been disclosed); UK-wide projects at more than 80 sites for three different clients also under NDA.

A recently completed project saw a major sports club gain full control of the match day content for event attendees thanks to a new gallery, and conversion of material to many screens around the stadium with different and non-standard aspect ratios.

The company will be exhibiting at IBC2019 where visitors can discuss their broadcast challenges and system requirements, and see the latest incarnations of dB Broadcast’s successful intelligent mains distribution units (iMDUs). The new Cardinal units include key features such as power monitoring and local download of software updates. dB has been shipping the new Cardinal iMDU12B for the last two months, and has already sold several hundred units.

Cardinal products now include remote power monitoring for maximising operational efficiency, and early detection of faults within a rack. This includes monitoring of power, input voltage, energy (kWh), input current and power factor. The local download feature means that new software versions can be uploaded in the field, without needing to remove the unit physically.

Other useful features include the ability to ‘power cycle’ remote equipment - a specific piece of kit can be powered down and up again - and monitor temperature to observe patterns and detect trends.

Tom Swan, Sales and Marketing Director of dB Broadcast said: "The latest Cardinal products feature enhancements based on our considerable experience with clients on major broadcast projects, and we are confident that they address real needs in the market. The reliability of the range has been verified by its use at TV and DAB transmitter sites throughout the UK."
