Wohler Video and Audio Monitors Enabled Flexible Confidence Monitoring at 37 Venues During Beijing Games

HAYWARD, Calif. — Oct. 20, 2008 — PANORAMAdtv, the video products division of Wohler Technologies Inc., today announced that the host broadcaster for the 2008 Beijing Games purchased and deployed dozens of Wohler audio and video monitoring systems across 37 different venues to support confidence and contribution-feed monitoring. In total, 125 MON4-2W/HR high-resolution display monitors and 17 AMP1-S8MDA audio monitors supported live broadcasts from in and around Beijing.

“The compact yet flexible design of MON series monitors is ideal for confidence monitoring of multiple video feeds, particularly when space is at a premium, and the AMP1-S8MDA provides flexible multiformat monitoring with high-resolution level meters that provide accurate and instantaneous visual level monitoring at a glance,” said Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler’s president and CEO. “Together these systems provide the excellent mix of utility and convenience required for large-scale monitoring during high-profile live broadcasts.”

The MON4-2W/HR is a four-display high-resolution color video monitor capable of monitoring either SD-SDI or HD-SDI signals using an all-digital signal processing (DSP) path in 2RU. The monitor’s 4.3-inch wide-format LCD panels are situated side by side in cylinders that may be rotated approximately ±30 degrees in the vertical plane for optimum operator viewing angles. Dedicated recessed controls enable adjustment of contrast and brightness for each panel. The MON4-2W/HR features a native 16:9 aspect ratio and offers selection between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios for SD-SDI signals, as well as tally indicators and independent power and input termination switches.

Wohler’s AMP1-S8MDA is a complete audio monitoring solution capable of monitoring audio from HD-SDI, SD-SDI, AES/EBU, and analog signal sources. The 1RU system processes and monitors up to eight channels from an HD-SDI or SD-SDI bit stream, two sets of four AES/EBU signal pairs (balanced and unbalanced), or eight balanced analog channels. Eight high-resolution 26-segment tri-color LED bar graph audio-level meters provide instant visual feedback. A convenient high-contrast LCD display on the front panel shows the user settings and status, type of signal, channel selection, mute status, and phase/correlation.

More information about the MON4-2W/HR high-resolution display monitors, AMP1-S8MDA audio monitors, and other Wohler products is available at www.wohler.com.
