The host broadcaster for the 2008 Beijing Games purchased and deployed dozens of Wohler audio and video monitoring systems across 37 different venues to support confidence and contribution-feed monitoring. In total, 125 MON4-2W/HR high-resolution display monitors and 17 AMP1-S8MDA audio monitors supported live broadcasts from in and around Beijing.

The MON4-2W/HR is a four-display, high-resolution color video monitor capable of monitoring either SD-SDI or HD-SDI signals using an all-digital signal processing (DSP) path in 2RU. The monitor's 4.3in wide-format LCD panels are situated side by side in cylinders that may be rotated approximately ±30 degrees in the vertical plane for optimum operator viewing angles. Dedicated recessed controls enable adjustment of contrast and brightness for each panel. The MON4-2W/HR features a native 16:9 aspect ratio and offers 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.

Wohler's AMP1-S8MDA is a complete audio monitoring solution capable of monitoring audio from HD-SDI, SD-SDI, AES/EBU and analog signal sources. The 1RU system processes and monitors up to eight channels from an HD-SDI or SD-SDI bit stream, two sets of four AES/EBU signal pairs (balanced and unbalanced) or eight balanced analog channels. Eight high-resolution, 26-segment tricolor LED bar graph audio-level meters provide instant visual feedback. A convenient high-contrast LCD display on the front panel shows the user settings and status, type of signal, channel selection, mute status and phase/correlation.
