(Burbank, California--July 31, 2012) Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group’s Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, announces a major continued investment in precision audio monitor systems from TSL Professional Products Ltd. (TSL). Bexel will add the new gear to its rental inventory, integrating it heavily into the flypacks the company provides as part of its complete turnkey solutions.
The nearly half-million-dollar investment includes the initial purchase of TSL’s PAM1-3G8, PAM1-3G16 and PAM2-3G16 audio monitoring units. Designed for use throughout entire broadcast facilities, TSL's precision audio monitoring series delivers top performance in a compact and intuitive package. Featuring OLED display technology, optional multi-format Dolby signal decoding and the unique “scroll-to-hear” user interface, the PAM series has become one of the world’s favorite rack-mounted multichannel audio monitoring solutions.
“We are excited about the addition of the TSL precision audio monitoring systems to Bexel’s expanding rental inventory,” says Tom Dickinson, chief technology officer, Bexel. “TSL’s products are a good mix for our product line and a welcomed addition by our major broadcast clients. In addition, we will be integrating the gear into our new flypack systems.”
Bexel plans to rent more than 40 units for an upcoming major summer sporting event in London as well as add an additional 40 units to its rental inventory, for a total of 80 units. “As embedding audio gets more complicated, it requires precision audio speaker solutions to ensure compliance,” adds Dickinson. “TSL’s PAM systems are able to do what we need them to do. In addition, as MADI becomes the industry standard, this investment allows Bexel to provide proper services to its clients.”
“We are pleased with Bexel’s continued commitment to the TSL brand,” says Chris Exelby, managing director of TSL Professional Products’ Ltd. “Bexel will be joining the vast array of users who will be relying on the TSL PAM family of products at this year’s summer games. Our PAM 1 and PAM 2 units will be helping broadcasters to monitor the multiple feeds coming in from the different sporting events taking place, helping them to achieve audio consistency and ensure they are within their country’s respective loudness standards.”
