BEL AUDIO MONITORS - 16 channel

Bel in-rack, broadcast audio monitors are designed for use in master control rooms, transmission suites, OB vehicles or as part of fly-away systems, to provide accurate assessment of signal quality. These models offer monitoring, with loudspeakers and meters, of sixteen audio channels selected from discrete, auto-sensing SD/HD/3G-SDI streams, AES3id digital audio inputs, or balanced analogue audio inputs.

Dolby D, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby E decoding is either standard or an option, as is loudness measurement. Audio metering is via high-resolution tri-colour LED bargraphs with peak-hold and user-selectable scales, ballistics and colour transition points. Meter scales and ballistics include AES, DIN, VU, and BBC. A 2x16 character display provides input status information. A configuration menu enables user-selection for the analogue line and monitor outputs to be fixed level, variable (following front panel volume/mute control) or permanently muted. Internal speakers are magnetically shielded.

BM-A2-E16SHD

This unit accepts two, auto-sensing SD/HD/3G-SDI video inputs, eight 110ohm unbalanced AES3id input pairs plus ten balanced analogue audio inputs. In addition to the sixteen 53-segment, tri-colour, audio meters and associated selection switches, the front panel provides controls for audio source selection, PCM/Dolby selection - including Dolby downmix, Dolby channel-pair selection when decoding from an embedded SDI or AES channel pair, volume/mute control, balance control and menu navigation encoder. LEDs indicate AES and SDI lock and left/right speaker indication. A 2x16 character LCD functions as an input status, Dolby metadata, Loudness and configuration menu display. There is also a 6.35mm stereo headphone socket, which mutes the loudspeakers when used.

The rear panel provides two BNC connectors for SDI inputs and one re-clocked SDI loop-through output following the selected input. Eight BNC connectors are assigned for the AES3id inputs. Eight channels of analogue audio inputs are available with eight channels via a D-sub type connector and inputs one and two duplicated on 25k ohm, balanced, 3-pin XLR. Eight BNC connectors provide AES3id outputs which follow the sixteen audio channels active on the front panel. Eight balanced analogue outputs (D-sub connector) follow the first eight audio channels to enable connection to an external surround speaker system. Two XLRs provide line-level analogue audio outputs, which follow the sources selected to the left and right loudspeakers. Audio output frequency range is 20Hz to 20kHz (+/-1dB). One D-sub connector provides an RS-485 Dolby metadata interface. The IEC power inlet with integral fuse has an adjacent power switch.

Power source: 90-260V AC, 50/60Hz. Consumption: 25W. Dimensions (WxDxH): 483 x 256 x 89mm, 2U. Weight: 5.8kg.

Included accessories: User manual, IEC power cable (UK), adhesive meter-scale graticules.

BM-A2-16SHD

This model has the same functionality as the BM-A2-E16SHD, but with the Dolby decode facility and loudness measurement facilities removed.

Power source: 90-260V AC, 50/60Hz. Consumption: 25W. Dimensions (WxDxH): 483 x 256 x 89mm, 2U. Weight: 5.8kg.

BM-A1-E16SHD

This unit accepts two auto-sensing, SD/HD/3G-SDI video inputs, four unbalanced, AES3id, input pairs plus eight balanced, analogue, audio inputs. In addition to the eight 26-segment, tri-colour audio meters and associated selection switches, the front panel provides controls for toggling the audio meters between channels 1-8 and 9-16, audio source selection, PCM/Dolby selection - including Dolby downmix, Dolby channel-pair selection when decoding from an embedded SDI or AES channel pair, volume/mute control, balance control and menu navigation encoder. LEDs indicate left/right speaker indication. A 2x16 character LCD functions as an input status, AES lock, Dolby metadata, Loudness and configuration menu display. There is also a 6.35mm stereo jack headphone socket, which mutes the loudspeakers when used.

The rear panel provides two BNC connectors for SDI inputs and one re-clocked, SDI, loop-through output following the selected input. Four 110 ohm balanced BNC connectors are assigned to the AES3id inputs. One D-sub connector is provided for the eight 25k ohm, balanced, analogue, audio inputs. Four AES3id outputs (BNC) and eight balanced analogue outputs (D-sub connector) follow the first eight audio channels active on the front panel. Two electronically balanced, 3-pin, XLRs provide line-level, analogue, audio outputs which follow the sources selected to the left and right loudspeakers. Audio output frequency response is 20Hz to 20kHz. One D-sub provides an RS-485 Dolby metadata interface. The IEC power inlet with integral fuse has an adjacent power switch.

Power source: 90-260V AC, 50/60Hz. Consumption: 25W. Dimensions (WxDxH): 483 x 256 x 44mm, 1U. Weight: 3.4kg.

Included accessories: User manual, IEC power cable (UK), adhesive meter-scale graticules.

BM-A1-16SHD

Power source: 90-260V AC, 50/60Hz. Consumption: 25W. Dimensions (WxDxH): 483 x 256 x 44mm, 1U. Weight: 3.4kg.

BM-A1-16OB

This unit accepts two auto-sensing, SD/HD/3G-SDI, video inputs, four unbalanced, AES3id, input pairs, plus two balanced, 3-pin, XLR, analogue audio inputs. In addition to the eight 26-segment, tri-colour, audio meters and associated selection switches, the front panel provides controls for toggling the audio meters between channels 1-8 and 9-16, audio source selection, volume/mute control, balance control and menu navigation encoder. LEDs indicate left/right speaker indication. A 2x16 character LCD functions as an input status, AES lock and configuration menu display.

The rear panel provides two BNC connectors for SDI inputs and one re-clocked, SDI, loop-through output following the selected input. Four BNC connectors are assigned to the AES3id inputs. Two balanced, 3-pin, XLR connectors are provided for the two analogue audio inputs. Four AES3id outputs (BNC) follow the first eight audio channels active on the front panel. Two electronically balanced, 3-pin, XLR connections provide line-level analogue audio outputs, which follow the sources selected to the left and right loudspeakers. Output frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz (+/-1kHz). Distortion and noise: -98dB below clipping. The IEC power inlet with integral fuse has an adjacent power switch.
