Global Television adds Wohler audio, video monitoring to two HD OB trucks
Wohler's compact HD/SD monitoring solutions will simplify high-resolution audio and video monitoring of Global Television's programming, which includes many of the country's high-profile reality, entertainment and sports programs.
The extensive installation includes Wohler MON series rackmount LCD HD/SD video monitors along with Wohler's digital audio monitoring bridges for HD/SD video and digital audio monitoring. The high-resolution display monitors can be used for confidence monitoring of multiple video feeds in mobile applications where space is limited.
The MON4-2W/HR features four side-by-side 4.3in wide-format LCD panels, each with dedicated recessed controls for contrast and brightness, native 16:9 aspect ratio and selection between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios for SD-SDI signals, as well as tally indicators and independent power and input termination switches. Each LCD is mounted in a cylinder and can be rotated about +/-30 degrees in the vertical plane for optimum operator viewing angles.
A total of nine MON4-2W/HR HD/SD rackmount LCD video monitors are being installed in each truck, providing 36 individual widescreen displays in 18RU. These units will support the bulk of Global Television's video monitoring activity. Seven MON1-T/7W-HR 7in high-resolution HD/SD monitors will be mounted adjacent to Tektronix waveform monitors in a Tektronix tub to facilitate detailed signal analysis.
