Wohler introduces RM LCD video monitoring series
Wohler has introduced its RM series monitors, which offer an array of features at a competitive price point. Created to enable affordable video and audio confidence monitoring, the compact and comprehensive products in the RM series are ideal for use in mobile trucks, news and transmission control rooms, and duplication and post-production facilities.
Every RM series HD monitor accepts formats up to 1080i60/30p and features an SDI screen capable of displaying eight channels of VU over PPM audio level meters, UMD, safe areas, frame marks, cropping, switchable aspect ratios and built-in color bars. The LCD itself is mounted in a versatile chassis that allows the operator to rotate the display array ±55 degrees in the vertical plane to achieve an optimum viewing angle. All settings are accessible from front-panel controls, and the system's intuitive on-screen menu. As a fully inclusive solution, each model is designed for high-resolution HD imaging with NTSC and PAL autosensing built into the units, which accept two composite video inputs per screen on the same BNC used for HD/SD-SDI.
The first seven models in the RM series include five HD monitoring products: the 2RU RM-2443W-HD, with four 4.3in TFT/LCD widescreen monitors; the 3RU RM-3270W-HD, with dual 7in TFT/LCD widescreen monitors; the 3RU RM-3357W-HD, with three 5.7in TFT/LCD widescreen monitors; the 4RU RM-4290W-HD, with dual 9in TFT/LCD widescreen monitors; and the compact 2RU RM-2435W-HD, with four 3.5in 4:3 TFT/LCD monitors. The series also includes two analog monitoring systems. In just 2RU, the RM-2443W-2C supports two composite inputs for each of its four 4.3in widescreen monitors. The 3RU RM-3270W-A serves as the analog version of the RM-3270W-HD and features three composite inputs per screen.
