West Chester, PA, February 24, 2015 — Belar Electronics is enhancing its WizWin software for its AM, FM and HD Radio modulation monitors heading into the 2015 NAB Show. The new advanced features capture modulation activity associated with analog and digital radio broadcasts over a specific time period, enabling broadcasters to leverage historical data to more effectively identify and solve air chain problems.
Using the IP connectivity of WizWin software, users can remotely tap into Belar’s flagship FMHD-1 and FMCS-1 units—as well as other leading Belar modulation monitors—and study trends through a series of graphics and displays that offer more detail than simple meters. Users can quickly confirm if their signals are overmodulated, and more effectively adjust their processors to maintain top quality over-the-air sound.
“Broadcasters are always seeking to maximize their signal performance and audio quality,” said Mark Grant, CEO, Belar Electronics. “By providing a history of richly detailed and graphical information instead of instantaneous snapshots, broadcasters have more visual clarity and information as they tailor their processing. And by feeding this information to any networked location, users can make these adjustments in the field instead of being forced to drive to the main studio or transmitter site. We’re empowering more timely adjustments to concerning air chain problems.”
Belar Electronics has long focused on building new software features and enhancements into its modulation monitors, coupled with powerful remote access software. This keeps long-term costs and complexity low for the end user, enriching the customer’s overall investment in Belar technology. The company will demonstrate its new software-defined remote connectivity and signal monitoring/management features at the 2015 NAB Show (April 13-16, Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth C2452).
