Spanish satellite relay and outside broadcast truck operator Gloway has purchased multiple units of Bel Digital Audio's latest 1U 3G audio and video confidence monitors, for use in its fleet of vehicles. Eleven of Bel's BM-AV1-E16SHD 16 channel audio and video monitors have been installed in the trucks of leading Spanish broadcast transmission services company Gloway, who are part of the Telefonica group. The sales were conducted through Bel’s long-standing Spanish distributor AEQ and five of the units went into new build DSNG trucks with the remaining six going into existing vehicles. Eduardo Guerrero, AEQ’s international sales manager, commented: “We were delighted to work with a company as highly regarded as Gloway to help supply the equipment to outfit their trucks. When we showed them the versatility offered from a single 1U device they were immediately convinced. As trucks and DSNG units get smaller, compact units like these become ever more desirable”. The BM-AV1-E16SHD provides 16 channels of 3G HD audio and video monitoring and comprehensive connectivity, including a pair of SDI inputs, eight AES-3id pairs and 8 balanced analogue inputs. The SDI inputs auto-detect between 3G/HD/SD SDI signals and configure themselves accordingly. A Dolby decoder is included in the BM-AV1-E16SHD as standard. When enabled, it can decode Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus material from any of the AES inputs, or from embedded audio data within the SDI bitstreams. All 11 vehicles with the Bel BM-AV1-E16SHD units are now in service. Gloway provides services to major Spanish broadcasters such as TVE, Canal +, Mediaset España, Sogecable, Cuatro, Antena 3 TV and many others. The trucks are being used for a wide variety of productions including major sporting events including live football and tennis. www.beldigital.com
