BSG moves to Dolby E with Axon
SINGAPORE: Broadcast Solutions Group (BSG) has invested in Axon Synapse Dolby E Encoders and Multiformat Dolby Stream Decoders to upgrade its flyaway systems to Dolby Digital. The systems are used to help capture live events destined for HD broadcast.
‘Within our business, we had a very stringent spec to follow to deliver the best quality production to our clients,’ said CEO of Broadcast Solutions Group, Saaed Izadi. ‘We tested many systems on the market and decided to go with Axon’s Synapse Dolby solution as it perfectly fits our mission-critical needs. Our flyaway kit needs to be moved from one place to another within a very short time frame. Equipment for these must be compact, reliable, robust and capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions. We are pleased with Axon's product quality, and with the technical support provided by its Singapore office.’
‘Axon’s Synapse signal processing product line is ideally suited to BSG's needs,’ commented Felix Ng, Axon sales director for South East Asia. ‘Our DBD28 Dolby multi format decoder, for example, has a quad speed Add-On audio bus and is capable of decoding Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus. The enhanced feature set includes the ability to decode 7.1-channel Dolby Digital Plus or 5.1-channel Dolby Digital 5.1 with audio description, carried in a single bitstream, or as two bitstreams.’
