Wohler’s New RM LCD Video Monitoring Series Earns “STAR” Award From Editors of TV Technology Europe

HAYWARD, Calif. — Oct. 7, 2008 — PANORAMAdtv, the video products division of Wohler Technologies Inc., today announced that its new RM LCD video monitoring series has received a 2008 STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award from the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine at IBC2008. The STAR Award is designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. TV Technology Europe editors and writers reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then chose 25 winners.

“STAR awards are given to interesting new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way,” said Mark Hallinger, editor of TV Technology Europe. “The products selected help advance the industry. Some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and some because they were just cool products.”

Wohler’s RM series monitor packs offers an unmatched array of features at an extremely competitive price point. Created to enable affordable video and audio confidence monitoring, the compact yet comprehensive products in the RM series are ideal for use in mobile trucks, news and transmission control rooms, and duplication and post-production facilities.

“Our RM series products enable implementation of cost-effective monitoring systems without the tradeoffs typically required by solutions offered at this price point,” said Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler president and CEO. “Our goal in developing the RM series was to provide exactly the benefits outlined by the STAR Award criteria, and we’re pleased that the staff of TV Technology Europe has recognized the series’ value in bringing greater convenience to monitoring operations.”

Every RM series HD monitor accepts formats up to 1080i60/30p and features an SDI screen capable of displaying eight channels of VU over PPM audio level meters, UMD, safe areas, frame marks, cropping, switchable aspect ratios, as well as built-in color bars. The LCD itself is mounted in a versatile chassis that allows the operator to rotate the display array ±55° in the vertical plane to achieve an optimum viewing angle. All settings are accessible from front-panel controls and the system’s intuitive on-screen menu. As a fully inclusive solution, each model is designed for high-resolution HD imaging with NTSC and PAL autosensing built into the units, which accept two composite video inputs per screen on the same BNC used for HD/SD-SDI.

The first seven models in the RM series include five HD monitoring products: the 2RU RM-2443W-HD, with four 4.3-inch TFT/LCD widescreen monitors; the 3RU RM-3270W-HD, with dual 7-inch TFT/LCD widescreen monitors; the 3RU RM-3357W-HD, with three 5.7-inch TFT/LCD widescreen monitors; the 4RU RM-4290W-HD, with dual 9-inch TFT/LCD widescreen monitors; and the very compact 2RU RM-2435W-HD, with four 3.5-inch 4:3 TFT/LCD monitors. The series also includes two analog monitoring systems. In just 2RU, the RM-2443W-2C supports two composite inputs for each of four 4.3-inch widescreen monitors. The 3RU RM-3270W-A serves as the analog version of the RM-3270W-HD and features three composite inputs per screen.
