In 1993 Glensound developed a master output unit called the GS-OM5. It was very popular with the BBC, particularly for radio outside broadcasts, and it was referred to by the affectionate name of the Mini Mop. During the last 12 months, BBC Radio OBs has been working closely with Glensound to specify the requirements for the MkII version. Glensound has adopted the BBCs affectionate name and called the new unit the MiniMOP V2, which will be entering service for BBC radio outside broadcasts, and at BBC Coventry and Warwickshire this April.

VectraCom's NOA technology today consists of two NOA record stations, including analog-to-digital converters and re-player communication modules, to enable simultaneous digitization of six parallel stereo ingest streams from analog carriers; NOA WaveButler to provide advanced, near real-time audio transcoding; and the NOA Job Database Workflow System.
