The Glensound Beatrice B4+

The Glensound Beatrice B4+ is Glensound’s first Broadway design unit, with 4 x FW & 4 x IFB’s to the Dante/AES67 Network. The B4+ can receive audio from 4 completely separate network locations.

The design of the B4 Plus is ultra-compact to make the unit as unobtrusive to the operator as possible.

The microphone input is on a 3 pin XLR and features gain adjust and 48V phantom power. The XLR connector can be specified with 4 or 5 pins for headset connections.

Four separate talk buttons route the microphone input to either of the 4 network outputs. The button operation can be configured as momentary, latching or intelligent. A double tap on any of the talk buttons will produce a ‘call’ signal alert that will be received by another Beatrice unit. An LED indicates an incoming call alert, which will also produce an audio indication on the headphones.

Each input has a separate level control adjust and a signal present indicator.

The Beatrice B4+ has remote control functions via GlenController.  Monitoring, setup and control are all available via remote control.

Ultra Compact Box The B4+ has been designed to be as small and compact as possible. A rugged aluminium case with tough pillar supports means that although it is very small, it is also very strong, to cope with the life of a portable unit. High Specification Microphone Amplifier (with connector option) The microphone input is on a 3 pin XLR with gain adjust and selectable 48v phantom power. The XLR connection can also be specified as a 4 pin or 5 pin headset connection if required. A separate 6.35 mm headphone output is always available. Listen To Four Separate Network Locations As the Beatrice B4+ is an Audinate Broadway design, it is possible to talk to four separate locations on the network. It also means that you could operate over 100 Beatrice B4+ devices on the same network. Four Direct Talkback Buttons Four separate talk buttons route the microphone input to either of the 4 network outputs. The button operation can be configured as momentary (PTT), latching or the Glensound intelligent mode. Built-In Call Function A double tap of any talk button will produce a ‘call’ signal alert that will be received by another Beatrice unit. This can be disabled. An LED indicates an incoming call alert, which will also produce an audio indication on the headphones. Separate Level Adjust For The Four Inputs Each input has a separate control to adjust the headphone level, so each of the four inputs can be quickly set at a different level. The pots are sprung recessed so when not in use they can be pushed into the unit to further reduce the unit dimensions and reduce the chance of any unwanted knocks. Each input can be panned left/right. There is a signal present LED on each input to identify the incoming audio source. Remote Control The Beatrice B4+ can be controlled across the network using Glensound’’s Windows 10 remote app GlenController.  The unit can be monitored with a real time PPM meter, have settings changed, and remotely control the button operation and input gain control.  Channel labels can be taken from the Dante network or set separately.
