HHB Announces New Wohler 3G 16-Channel Audio Monitors With OLED Screen Technology
Friday 11th September 2009
The new AMP1-16-3G and the Dolby® E-capable and Dolby Digital Plus ready AMP1-E16-3G are 16-channel multirate audio monitors featuring a straightforward control interface to simplify the most complex multichannel and surround applications. With superior screen performance and 3G support, AMP1-16-3G and AMP1-E16-3G are smart, forward-looking additions to any fixed or mobile broadcast facility.
Equipped with dual selectable 3G/HD/SD inputs, the AMP1-16-3G and AMP1-E16-3G provide monitoring for up to 16 channels of embedded audio within a single multirate SDI signal. Central to the superior performance of the new 1U rack-mounting monitors are three OLED Screens, two of which can display up to 16 channels of audio simultaneously (8 per screen) as well as one line of user-chosen Dolby metadata (E option only) with speeds up to and including 3G. The third screen can either display video or up to 8 lines of user selectable Dolby metadata (E option only).
Loudness metering conforms to EIA 1770/1771 and comprehensive help screens guide the user through set-up and operation.
“With intuitive interfaces, flexible metering parameters, the latest in display technology, and support for the newest surround format, our new AMP1 audio monitors offer the robust performance required for today’s DTV signal chain,” says Kim Templeman-Holmes, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Wohler. “We’re pleased to show the new AMP1-16-3G and AMP1-E16-3G for the first time in Europe with HHB, and feel confident that Europe's HD broadcasters will find them a convenient solution for their multichannel monitoring needs.”
Also new from Wohler is the RMT-170-HD, a 17" high-definition desktop/ rackmount LCD monitor featuring dual HD-SD/SDI inputs with loop through, and the RM-2443W-2HD, a quad 4.3" HD/SD-SDI tilting video monitor with dual inputs and embedded audio metering and monitoring.
Speaking on behalf of HHB, Broadcast Sales Manager Martin O’Donnell says, “These innovative new products reaffirm Wohler’s position as the number one manufacturer of broadcast audio and video confidence monitoring.”
