Bexel Launches Sideline Audio/Video Cart

Bexel has announced its new Sideline Audio/Video Cart, a plug-and-play solution for streamlining the acquisition of field audio and video feeds in all types of stadium sports productions.

Bexel said with the cart’s pneumatic tires and lightweight aluminum shell, it can be deployed on the sideline or end zone of a sports field, or anywhere requiring quick connections for video and audio feeds.

The Sideline Audio/Video Cart can be equipped to each customer's specifications. Since equipment can be pre-assembled in the cart, setup and strike times are greatly reduced. Staff costs are lowered because fewer technicians are required on-site, and they can arrive later to the venue.

The cart provides connections for single-mode fiber, SMPTE hybrid and copper cables and hydra cable assemblies. It enables MADI audio as well as wireless audio and video transmissions. A built-in patch bay allows users to monitor, troubleshoot and manage signal routing.

The cart can be moved into place and deployed in minutes by a single person. It comes complete with integrated antenna poles, customized drawers for stowing gear and a flat tabletop surface that can serve as an on-site workspace.

The standard cart measures 72 by 47 by 36 inches — providing ample rack space for shows of any size. Its rugged, weather-resistant housing protects gear in all types of conditions. The cart is powered via a 110-volt outlet and provides an extended period of UPS backup power.
