35 Years of Quality Patching Products
2017 marks 35 years of designing and manufacturing broadcast patching products under the BES brand.
“The industry has changed significantly since BES began trading, facilitated by technological developments, the internet and social media,” comments Darren Fuller, Product Manager at BES. “There was not the amount of choice and accessibility that there is today and the market is extremely fragmented, urging broadcasters to adapt to new consumer habits and invest in the latest technology to flourish in the sector.
“Behind the scenes, equipment is now running continuously, production has become automated and broadcasters require reliable equipment with higher power capabilities to handle the everyday tasks with ease and efficiency in this fast-paced era.
“In the coming years, I believe broadcasters will need to focus on additional offerings with customised and seamless UHD content across devices. In turn, this means broadcasters will require production and distribution equipment that allows for innovation, responsive systems and high quality content creation.”
BES’ most popular innovative product currently on the market is its 4K video patching panel with re-engineered MudigSA style connectors which enable the panel to achieve beyond 12GHz, as the industry prepares for the UHD upgrade.
Another popular range are the Mains Distribution Units with a variety of operation modes for use with a range of systems and ease of use. This includes two filtered units to prevent RFI from reaching sensitive equipment.
BES will continue to adapt to the evolving industry and support broadcasters as they too adjust to emerging trends.
