HHB NewsWohler Audio Monitoring From HHB Keeps Visions OB In The Picture
Britain’s largest OB facilities company NEP Visions has used the new Wohler AMP1-E16-3G rack-mounting audio monitor on a job for Fox Sports in Afghanistan. Visions supplied a complete mobile production (Fly Pack) and editing facility enabling the US broadcaster to present an edition of its popular NFL Pre Show from the US Air Force base in Kabul. 

“I first saw the new Wohler monitor on the HHB booth at IBC,” reports NEP Visions Head of Sound Paul Fournier. “We enjoy a close working relationship with the guys at HHB and they were happy to let us check out the AMP1-E16-3G on a live job.” 

As Paul goes on to explain, the new Wohler device’s ability to monitor 16 channels of audio from 3G, HD, SD-SDI, Dolby D or E, and AES sources equips it well for current technical trends in outside broadcast. 

“We’re moving back to component for production, encoding the audio to Dolby only at the point of transmission. This single device allows us to monitor in any format through production, and also the Dolby encoded audio for transmission. And our engineers particularly liked the facility to see the picture alongside the audio, right there on the rack ¬ it certainly adds an extra layer of confidence.” 

Commenting on behalf of HHB, the UK’s exclusive distributor of Wohler products, Broadcast Sales Manager Martin O’Donnell says, “The valuable feedback we get from Paul and other broadcast customers helps us understand the issues they face on a day to day basis which enables HHB to offer the best technical solutions. With 3G and 3D gaining traction in Outside Broadcast production, Wohler’s latest rack mount audio and video monitoring tools are a perfect fit.”
