      The ultimate message generator for cable systems, distributed video systems, corporate, institution, nursing homes, school systems, government channels, retirement communities, shipboard video systems, digital signage networks and more - at a price any station or distribution network can afford!

      Positively the easiest way yet to put a message on the air Access it with your web browser, no additional software to load on your computer. The BB101 is designed to be installed at an NTSC video head end and allows you to superimpose a text crawl over video for community information, emergency warnings, or other types of messages without interruption of the program. Ideal for cable stations and video distribution networks, the BB101 is a complete messaging solution.

      Dual Crawl Line
      Ideal for bilingual communications, each line can be at a different speed. Multiple message files can be pre loaded and programmed to play back at preset intervals or triggered to play immediately. Crawls can include warning sounds or voice together with text. A "Force to all Caps" feature is included. You can also cut and paste crawl line text from other files.

      Fly your station logo in the crawl line in 24 bit color. You can insert your logo in the crawl line and the crawl line can have a transparent background for a professional look.

      Use it as a Logo Generator
      Your bitmap logo, in 24 bit color, can be located anywhere on the screen. Overall logo transparency is fully adjustable down to a barely visible watermark. Logo's can be triggered from a Web page, the GPI, at preset intervals, or to display only when crawl lines are playing.

      Embedded Web Server
      The BB101 can be connecter to your existing computer network and is password protected. In multiple unit systems, only one Ethernet connection is needed. Firmware is upgradeable through the Ethernet connection as well.

      A/B Switch with Fade
      Built in A/B switching with break away audio, can be triggered via computer or GPI contact closure. The auxiliary input has a looping output jack so that multiple units can be connected to the same auxiliary video source. You can program the GPI to trigger any important announcement with the touch of a button (i.e. a severe storm warning stored in a text buffer). A fade function can fade to black or fade from the program input to the auxiliary input. The BB101 can detect loss of sync and can be programmed, on sync loss, to switch to the auxiliary input, the pre-stored bitmap, or close an output contact to activate another device.

      Audio Warning Tones or Voice Overs
      Audio capacity allows you to accompany the video with a sound file of a warning tone or recorded voice. The system lowers the program sound level when the inserted sound is playing. The audio monitor function, with headphone jack, allows you to balance the sound file level with the program audio before going live.
