Wohler Products at KOBA 2012:
Wohler RadiantGrid New Media Automation Platform
Wohler's RadiantGrid New Media Automation Platform enables a more efficient solution for file-based creation, standards conversion, QC, and distribution of media, while augmenting and integrating with trafficking, rights management, linear automation, and business process management systems. At the heart of the platform is RadiantGrid's TrueGrid(TM) -- an enhanced, robust media transformation and parallel processing engine -- coupled with an underlying content management fabric that leverages intelligent media processing functions to generate outstanding results at unrivaled speeds. Powered by this engine, RadiantGrid manages everything from faster-than-real-time transcoding and audio processing to more complex processing, such as faster-than-real-time standards conversion, mixed cadence correction, video optimization, audio loudness conformance, and more.
RMQ-230 Quad Split Video Monitor
Wohler's new RMQ-230 quad split video monitor allows users to watch video and monitoring data in up to four display windows on a single 23-inch 1920x1080 LED backlight screen. RMQ-230 series monitors accept 3G/HD/SD-SDI, analog composite, and HDMI(R) inputs in varying configurations tailored for different monitoring applications and price points. In addition to allowing broadcasters to mix and match video input formats on a single screen, RMQ-230 monitors can display waveform and vectorscope while also providing audio de-embedding, audio metering of up to eight channels, UMD, timecode, and various markers.
AMP1-16M Dual 3G/HD/SD-SDI Audio Monitor
Wohler's new dual input SDI audio monitor offers high-performance monitoring of embedded audio in 3G/HD or SD-SDI streams at an attractive price point. The 1RU unit de-embeds and provides metering and monitoring of any or all of the 16 audio channels in the selected 3G/HD or SD-SDI stream. The monitor offers intuitive operation and clear display of levels and other critical information using bright 2.4-inch LED-backlit LCD displays, enabling one-touch monitoring and summing of any selected pair(s) via built-in speakers, headphones, or XLR balanced outputs.
