Wohler Products at CAPER 2011:

AMP2-16V Series Modular Audio/Video Processing Monitor

Wohler will feature the AMP2-E16V-3G at CAPER 2011, following the introduction of major enhancements to its flagship AMP2-16V audio/video processing monitor. Highlights of the new AMP2-16V version 5 include a new automation configuration menu and hot keys that allow the unit to recall presets automatically based on a predefined set of conditions. These new features greatly simplify operations for a broader range of users by addressing even the most complex applications with a single press of a button. In addition to new automation and channel-cluster configuration options, version 5 now offers support for both Dolby(R) and SMPTE 2020 metadata-based downmixing, more specific status window descriptors, and remote setup and software update options via Ethernet connection.

Pandora Loudness Analyzer

Pandora is a compact and easy-to-read desktop or rack-mountable monitor that can be employed at any point in the broadcast chain that requires simple, accurate loudness monitoring. Through the new Wohler Loudness application, Pandora now allows users to monitor, analyze, and demonstrate audio loudness levels on an iPad(R) or iPod touch(R). When the application is in "Demo" mode, features can be demonstrated on an iPod touch or iPad. Standards covered include ATSC A/85 (ITU BS.1770 and ITU BS.1771), EBU R128, and ARIB TR-B32.

Presto Video Switcher

Also on display at CAPER 2011 will be Presto, Wohler's award-winning new video switcher that makes 16 3G/HD/SD-SDI video channels readily available for monitoring and straightforward switching via integrated OLED pushbuttons. Following on the success of Wohler's Touch-It(TM) Digital multichannel video monitor and controller, Presto is a compact 1-RU solution with 16 OLED screens, each of which serves as a switching button that displays the video stream from any source.

RM-3270W HD/SD-SDI Video Monitor

The RM Series is a highly featured, low-cost range of in-rack HD/SD-SDI and CVBS video monitors ideal for the many feeds in mobile trucks, news and transmission control rooms, duplication, and post production applications. Tilting monitors come standard with in-monitor level metering, selectable video waveform and vector scope, safe and title markers, labeling, tally, timecode, video format, and built-in color bars, as well as familiar CRT-style picture controls and an intuitive on-screen configuration menu. The RM-3270W features two, 7-inch high-resolution screens mounted in a 3-RU enclosure. Input signals are automatically detected and up to 8 of the 16 audio channels embedded in an HD/SD-SDI bitstream may be selected for visual monitoring on 8 on-screen bar graph style level meters on the HD and 2HD models.
