For professional live event broadcasting - anywhere

The Anycast Station is an integrated, portable and easy to use solution that can be used by customers that require professional results and mobility. The Anycast Station's all-in-one design helps keep set-up time to a minimum, and allows it to be easily moved from location to location. Measuring just 424 x 114 x 354 mm (W x H x D) and weighing around 8kg, the Anycast Station is compact enough to be carried by hand, yet has a number of professional features you would expect for live event content production - including RGB and video inputs and outputs.

The Anycast Station now has two optional interface modules that extend the system's wide capabilities: the BKAW-560 HD Analogue Component I/O Module and the BKAW-590 HD-SDI I/O Module. End users can now migrate from analogue to digital or SDI to HD simply by swapping the modular BKAW interface cards.

Convenient all-in-one solution

As the Anycast Station has many integrated functions in one unit, it can save valuable time and labour when setting up and packing away.


Fewer potential hardware issues as the video switcher, audio mixer and monitor are integrated into one system.
