In these days of tightened budgets and reduced resources, Broadcasters are forced to look for ways to trim costs. For those Broadcasters operating News Studios, the BVE02-PV offers an elegant and simple solution for reducing two pairs of hands to one.
The BVE02-PV adds two essential features to standard ESAM control for Yamaha 02R96, DM1000 and DM2000 mixers; audio preview of next-up sources and multiple concurrent sources on the program bus, when connected to an appropriately enabled vision switcher such as the Snell Kahuna.
There is an option for adding a compact fader control unit that can be installed immediately adjacent to the vision switcher allowing both audio and video to be effectively managed from the one operator's position. This facility makes the BVE02-PV ideal for single-operator galleries where one person can be in charge of both vision and audio mixing.
Audio preview presents the faders for the next-up source on the remote panel and dedicated faders of the mixer, where the levels can be adjusted while that source is heard through the monitoring system. These adjusted levels are automatically applied to the source's faders when they are opened to the program bus.
