Standard Definition configuration of the Anycast Station - a unique portable solution incorporating video switching and audio mixing with high quality LCD display for producing live broadcast events.

Overview

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.
