Oriole Park at Camden Yards chooses Wohler monitoring solutions

Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home of MLB’s Baltimore Orioles, is using a variety of monitoring gear from Wohler Technologies within a completely upgraded HD digital production system. Newington, VA-based Communications Engineering supplied and installed the gear.

The ballpark’s facilities originate HD programming for new HD LED video displays and generate two HD channels for the in-house cable system. Installed in the scoreboard control room, Wohler audio and video monitoring systems enable convenient monitoring and QC of signals, including the PA feed to the seating bowl, as well as program and effects audio to the home TV truck and home radio broadcast booth.

At three operator stations, Wohler’s 1RU ARS-22B source selectors provide 10 stereo inputs, allowing each user to build a custom mix of sound for monitoring of multiple sources at once. Five AMP1A-LP stereo audio monitors, occupying 1RU, are used around the plant for quick confidence monitoring. At the master QC station, the 2RU AMP2-V2DA enables the user to listen to two channels and monitor up to four simultaneously. The unit conveniently supports switching between the room's analog and digital sources as well as building of custom mixes for monitoring. By supporting analog and digital monitoring from the same place, the Wohler audio monitors give operators the flexibility to multitask and run the control room with efficiency.

Wohler systems also provide high-quality video monitoring within the ballpark’s control room. A 9in HDMON-90WS production-grade HD color video monitor is employed at a secondary QC position, meeting the operator's need for rapid switching between dual inputs. The compact monitor fits neatly on the desktop and can be positioned differently depending on the demands of the workflow.
