B&B Systems M216
The industry is changing. Enter the new era of broadcasting, enter HD. At B&B Systems, we strive to maintain the level of excellence and quality that has come to be our trademark in this highly competitive market. Long ago we realized the publics need for an affordable, reliable and customizable HD system, to that end, we offer our M216 package.
HD Production in a Box
With the rising demand for location shoots, logistics are becoming an increasing concern for production companies. At times, renting a full-scale production truck is not cost effective for the project. Our systems have been designed to pack into custom built Flight Pack cases, which allow for maximum portability, ease of storage and lowered setup times. The integration of the system into these cases also offers more protection for the delicate electronics within, so you can transport your entire setup to any location in the world with minimum hassle.
The M216 comes standard with 6 studio configured JVC GY-HD250 cameras and KH-250 Studio adaptor sleds to allow the cameras to run HD/SDI for 330 ft. It also allows you to shoot in both High and Standard definition. Optional Camplex fiber application expands the capability to 1500-2500 ft.
The M216 package makes full production capabilities available to you with onsite HD-Graphics, full audio configurations, a full communications suite and basic editing capabilities.
Studio level switcher, on-site portability
The M216 allows you to have an 8 input switcher at your immediate, on-site disposal. The For-A HVS-500 is an HD/SDI switcher, boasting multi-format and auto-sensing functionality. Multiple outputs combined with its compact size and single frame construction translates into unprecedented capability and ease of transportation.
Multiple camera setups have unique needs when it comes to signal monitoring. We use HD/SDI monitors for your main program and preview station, while we employ rack mounted dual HD/SDI monitors to enable you to keep an eye on your sources and HD signal. We provide multiple format recording decks for your various needs, enabling you to record in MPEG-2, DV-Cam and HD MPEG-2 quality in the Sony format.
(Optional Sony HDW2000 / F500 )
(We recommend a Sony HDW-500 for recordings @ 60i)
RTS intercoms are widely recognized as the most advanced, reliable and user friendly intercom systems in the world. When you are in charge of keeping a production crew in constant communication, why settle for anything less? The RTS solution included in the M216 allows for instantaneous communication between the Director, Producer TD and all of the camera operators. For ease of deployment, we have designed this to run parallel to the Camplex HD/SDI fiber system, and the JVC Multicore.
Recording in DAT, CD or HDD format has never been easier. The M216 comes standard with a 24 track recorder and an 8 wireless microphone setup. Also included are audio limiters, speakers, monitors and amplifiers. Microphone setup can be expanded to suit your company’s needs as necessary.
On site HD graphics are a reality with the M216. The Cayman Graphics Power CG Live, a resolution independent CG program that runs on a G5 tower, or a laptop. Utilizing a Blackmagic video card, simply output the signal in HD/SDI, and send it to your Downstream Queue on your HVS-500. Using a laptop for CG? Transfer the signal to your Convergent LE design box via Firewire, and connect it to the HVS-500.
