Miami's WPBT monitors digital audio using Linear Acoustic LAMBDA
WPBT, a PBS public TV station in Miami, is using four Linear Acoustic LAMBDA professional digital audio and metadata monitors with its new digital master control system for quality control monitoring. For WPBT, the system displays and reproduces up to 16 audio channels from AES or embedded HD-SDI inputs and includes loudness monitoring.
The station made the transition to a new digital master control system last year, which required QC monitoring of 5.1 surround sound and its data. To address this need, integrator Broadcast Systems Consultants installed four Linear Acoustic LAMBDA units at the station to provide QC monitoring for the new system over three digital channels, one HD and two SD, in addition to out-of-house submissions to PBS.
