Bizaki Entertainment Bureau Broadcast Lithocaster is a device with a tuner that turns signals broadcast exclusively by the Bizaki Entertainment Bureau, into content, then displays the content on residential-media screens or 3-dimensional display monitors. Natively called a ‘BEBBLE‘ or a ‘BEB,’ one unit is given freely to Bizaki at the end of her vocational apprenticeship. Other castes wishing to own a BEB must procure it retail, from Ukel Systems.
In 2181, Ninth-Gen construct-engineer for Ukel Systems, Tee Banto, created the Caster Board, a networking device that connected broadcast content directly to Intragux. The Caster Board within ushered in the age of pure digital transmission, negating the need for signal-tower hardware. In 2182, fellow construct-engineer Eppis Ukel, created the first broadcast lithocaster. Finding the device too large for residential use in the citizenry-market, Ukel Systems enlisted concept designer Vix Acari to streamline the hardware. Banto, Ukel, and Acari presented it to the Prime Chair of the Bureau, in 2183. The product debuted with success in 2184; paving the way for Tee Banto to become Prime Chair of the Bizaki Entertainment Bureau, later that year.
Controversy surrounded her promotion, as many believe that Eppis Ukel and Vix Acari were the primary designers of the unit, while Banto, who designed only the caster board inside of it, may have been presented to the BEB Counsel as its sole creator.
