HHB Supplies NEP Visions With Audio Monitors For London 2012 Olympics

HHB Communications has supplied OB provider NEP Visions with 26 Wohler AMP1-16-M audio monitoring units (AMU) for high-profile sporting events, including the London 2012 Olympics, the Wimbledon Tennis Championships and Premier League football.
After their first deployment in flyaway systems at Wimbledon to broadcast matches for ESPN in America, the AMP1-16-M AMUs were installed into two triple expander HD OB vehicles to cover the London 2012 Olympics for US broadcaster NBC before moving on to Sky’s coverage of the next season’s Premier League football.
The AMP1-16-M AMUs enable NEP Visions engineers to select, monitor and meter up to 16 channels of embedded audio from either of two 3G/HD/SD-SDI streams. With a stereo analogue output on XLRs, adjustable volume and balance controls, the AMP1-16-M also features level metering and phase on two bright 2.4-inch LED backlit displays. Configurations can be created, saved and recalled via Ethernet and copied between units via USB.
NEP Visions Head of Sound Paul Fournier explains that he chose the AMP1-16-M monitors for these critical applications because they are simple to read and a compact, lightweight unit that can fit in small working spaces: “Operationally, the AMP1-16-M is very easy to use and the SDI inputs help us reduce the cabling that we would normally need for monitoring 16 channels of audio. We have always found Wohler to make very reliable products and we plan on ordering many more of these units for new trucks that we will build in the future. HHB supplied the monitors quickly and efficiently and were very accommodating along the way. They are my go-to supplier for professional audio products.”
HHB Manager, Broadcast & SI Sales Nikki Kalsi says: “The new Wohler AMP1-16-M is a versatile product with a multitude of features at a very competitive price. It is perfect for OB environments where embedded multi-channel audio is becoming more common place. We have developed a strong and enjoyable working relationship with Paul and the NEP team over many years and look forward to continuing that in the future.”
