Wohler’s 3Gbps-Capable AMP2-16-3G Audio Monitor Offers Future-Proof Functionality and Flexibility

HAYWARD, Calif. — April 8, 2009 — Wohler Technologies Inc. today announced the release of the AMP2-16-3G audio monitor, a 3Gbps-capable 16-channel monitor introduced to address broadcasters’ migration to HD and their increasing reliance on higher-capacity 3Gbps video transport infrastructures. The monitor leverages the unique flexibility of the popular WohlerPlus audio processing platform to ensure versatile, future-proof functionality with 3Gbps support.

“The AMP2-16-3G offers functionality critical to monitoring in complex HD broadcast operations, handling numerous audio channels, providing support for advanced infrastructures, and giving operators flexibility in selecting input types according to the changing needs of the business and workflow,” said Kim Templeman-Holmes, vice president of global sales and marketing at Wohler.

Wohler’s AMP2-16-3G provides simultaneous display for up to 16 channels of embedded audio within a single multirate 3Gbps signal. Equipped with five card slots, the audio monitor allows users to “pick and mix” their inputs and adapt the AMP2-16-3G to the evolving needs of the broadcast operation. This same functionality also enables users of Wohler’s AMP2-16MSDI system, available with Audio Engineering Society (AES) and Dolby® E options, to upgrade their systems with the addition of a 3Gbps card.

In addition to providing flexible input support, the AMP2-16-3G audio monitor addresses key issues in DTV audio delivery, providing measurement of program loudness in adherence with ITU-1770/1771, which is displayed prominently on the unit’s LCD status screen.

Built on a fully digital system architecture featuring multiple high-fidelity class-D amplifiers, the AMP2-16-3G provides unsurpassed near-field monitoring for any mix of stereo and mono sources in a compact 2RU design. The monitor includes demuxed outputs of eight AES pairs on BNC connectors and also provides a reclocked loop output of the 3Gbps signal.

The monitor’s high-resolution LCD display boasts colorful 210-segment high-resolution bar graph level meters. Colors and settings for scale and range are user-selectable along with several predefined scales and ballistics including AES, BBC, and Nordic. Each displayed meter set clearly indicates the phase for stereo sources prior to output on the speakers.

The AMP2-16-3G will be available in July 2009. More information about Wohler and the company’s product line is available at www.wohler.com.
