BVE 2018 Preview
Contributing Editor David Kirk looks ahead to the
upcoming BVR trade show in London...

VE returns to its usual haunt, the
London ExCel, Tuesday February
27 through Thursday March 1. I have
never understood the logic of holding
a broadcast trade show just weeks
ahead of the big one in Las Vegas,
but sufficient products and services
will be on show to justify taking the
shuttle out to Royal Victoria Dock.
The organisers claim 300-plus brands
will be represented either directly or
via exhibiting resellers. This preview,
as ever, concentrates mainly on new
equipment not reported from previous
events.

not in use. It has 12 physical dual-layer
faders for mixing live sources during
broadcast plus extra virtual faders
via its user interface. With 48 input
channels and the same bus count as
the Brio36, the console has capacity
for sub-mixes and VCA slaves. These
capabilities also make it suitable for
automated production.
