Eventide BD960 Broadcast Delay Details
The remarkably inexpensive Eventide BD960 is ideal for safe-guarding for your live audio broadcast needs, whether you are a station servicing a smaller market or you are broadcasting a shock jock in the big city. Any station that ever plans a live call-in or even slightly risky in-studio guest will benefit from having a BD960 delay unit in its protective arsenal.

You're on the air, and someone has just opened his or her big mouth a little too wide. Don't Panic!
Just hit the Delete button, and the obscene caller or out-of control studio guest never reaches the air. The Delete function also closes a relay contact. With an easily built relay box, this can automatically start a six (or three or twelve) second cart - a short program promo, a station ID, a funny "zapper," anything you want. When the delay period "plays out," your delay switches you back "almost live" on the air with full delay protection restored. The whole operation takes just one button. What could be simpler?

What could be simpler, indeed!
How about â??no need for an easily built relay box or filler cartâ?ť? With the BD960, you need no relay, no filler cart - because filler playback is built into the unit! The BD960 AutoFillâ"˘ Broadcast Delay has a built- in memory to store material to use to fill those embarrassing silences while the delay period is regained. Since the memory is non-volatile, you donâ??t have to worry about losing it in a power failure; since itâ??s fully electronic, you donâ??t have to worry about loss of quality as it gets played and played and played. And, perhaps best of all, since it doesnâ??t add to the cost of the unit, you donâ??t have to justify paying extra for the feature!

Some choices you donâ??t have to makeâ?¦

Previous BD900-series models required you to specify mono or stereo and the delay length at the time of ordering. But you donâ??t have to make these choices with the BD960. ALL units are stereo, ALL have a maximum delay of eight seconds, adjustable to any value up to the maximum. And with the low cost of the BD960, you donâ??t need to choose whether to run unprotected on incidental programs, remotes, or on other occasions. Sure, if youâ??re a heavy talk station, you will probably want our world-standard BD500 delay with its patented â??catch upâ?ť feature and ability to unobtrusively build up delay with no program interruption. But any station that ever plans a live call- in or even slightly risky instudio guest will benefit from having a BD960 delay unit in its protective arsenal.

You canâ??t say that on the radioâ?¦
But people who know that sometimes slip, and many enjoy testing limits. Recent changes and decisions at the FCC have made it more risky than ever to be risqué, and libel lawsuits and penalties in the U.S. and other countries can be more costly than FCC fines. With its spectacular audio specifications, the BD960 lets you control these risks with maximum convenience for you and transparency for your listeners.
