Integration of Loudness Algorithms Makes AMP2-16V a Complete Audio Management System, Uniting Loudness Control and Monitoring and Mixing in One Box
LAS VEGAS — April 12, 2010 — Wohler Technologies Inc. today announced that its new AMP2-16V modular audio/video processing monitor can be delivered with a choice of Linear Acoustic or Jünger loudness control technology. The integration of loudness control into Wohler's AMP2-16V unit allows users to employ the system for convenient monitoring and reliable, high-performing loudness control at critical points within the broadcast chain.
This new feature for Wohler's AMP2-16V allows it to perform continuous control of any program material, regardless of its original source. The unit's preset loudness metering and control functions meet the needs of most applications, but operators can easily custom-tune settings via the AMP2-16V interface. In either case, the operator can "set and forget," allowing the system to perform adaptive level control without manual intervention.
"Wohler products are designed and enhanced through our relationship with broadcast engineers around the world, and in some respects we serve as an extension of their engineering teams, delivering the solutions they want with interfaces tailored to the way they work," said Kim Templeman-Holmes, VP of global sales and marketing at Wohler. "With versatility akin to a Swiss Army® Knife, the AMP2-16V is a perfect example of how Wohler solutions enable flexible, cost-effective configuration of powerful monitoring and control capabilities. The addition of best-of-breed loudness control technology makes the AMP2-16V a formidable all-in-one solution that reduces the cost, complexity, and space requirements of monitoring and control in all variety of fixed and mobile broadcast facilities."
Wohler's AMP2-16V features dual 4.3-inch OLED displays that support dedicated video monitoring, loudness metering and control, audio routing and mix controls, and Dolby® Zoom functions. Combined with robust metering and monitoring features, as well as modular I/O options including SDI, AES, and analog, these capabilities make the AMP2-16V not just an audio monitor with video, but a complete audio management system.
