Frontier Post Expands, Buys Six Audio Monitoring Units

U.K.-based post-production house Frontier Post ordered six ATG Broadcast SAM audio monitoring units as part of an expansion project. Four SAM-E and two half-rack width SAM-E-T units will be added.

"The SAM-E units provide versatile audio monitor control in a compact and robust form factor," said Neil Hatton, Frontier Post's managing director.

The SAM-E-2 is a 2 RU rack-mountable audio monitoring unit and incorporates dual meters, loudspeakers and front-panel control. The SAM-E-1 is designed for use with in-vision audio level displays and external loudspeakers.

Operational facilities on the SAM-E range include button-per-channel selection of stereo analog, AES or SDI-embedded digital sources. LED status displays indicate digital audio sampling rate carrier presence and carrier-lock. Other buttons enable phase reversal, audio monitor mute, dim, left/right monitor selection and left/right source cut. Signal level display can be switched from left/right to mid/side mode with 20+ dB gain.
