Amongst the top end broadcast equipment showcased by http://Ward-Beck.com at the NAB 2015 booth# C2541, Ward-Beck Systems is connecting with its Legacy user base by showcasing the RTO-214 and RTO-47 Equipment chassis', a WBSps.ca support product.
Fitting inside the racks are:

M490E - stereo line input module from the R series of Radio consoles
M520A Microphone pre-amp from the ST series console
M522C balance stereo EQ from the ST series
M461 Microphone pre-amp from an M1204 console

And the venerable M466/M467 compressor, limiter, de-esser, Gate, Meter set from the 460 and L series;  A dynamics set that was in production, unchanged, between 1977 to 1995.  This rack showcases only a small portion of  popular Ward-Beck Systems Legacy products.  http://WBSps.ca/archiveView the Archive for more products

The RTO series has come about as a way for users of legacy equipment to safely rack mount loose modules in a user customizable package.  The RTO-214 can house (2) 14" WBS legacy modules while the RTO-47 can house (4) 7" modules.   Demand is growing to support the 400 series and 480 series of modules as well!  Though WBS is not manufacturing the modules, support through the WBSps.ca website and its user forum http://WBSps.ca/forum is legendary.

The Chassis' are made by WBS Canada and are available now as a part of  their 200+ product catalog   http://Ward-Beck.com/Products
