Eventide is now shipping its BD600W broadcast delay featuring built-in WheatNet-IP connectivity and Extended Remote capability. The BD600W streams 24-bit audio and control data over the WheatNet-IP network for integration with new or existing WheatNet-IP broadcast networks.
The Eventide BD600W in conjunction with the WheatNet-IP network is fully compatible with the AES67 standard for AoIP.
The BD600W builds upon Eventide’s BD600 platform, which features 80 seconds of profanity protection, or, in MicroPrecision Delay mode, features 10 seconds of delay adjustable in microseconds or thousandths of film/video frames for synchronizing analog with digital for HD Radio or synchronizing audio with video.
MicroPrecision Delay can be adjusted on-air, in real time, reportedly without audible artifacts. According to Eventide, the BD600 platform is widely regarded for its audio performance (S/N ratio and dynamic range of >104dB, and <0.003% THD+N @ 1kHz), and reliability.
In addition to the BD600W, an optional factory installed upgrade, or a W-Upgrade field upgrade kit (soldering required) is available from Eventide for BD600s manufactured in 2011 or later.
