Wohler Releases New Software

Wohler Technologies has announced a new software release for the company's award-winning MPEG Series of broadcast-quality MPEG video monitors, the industry's first universal digital broadcast confidence monitor line.
Now boasting an even broader library of accepted formats, an improved interface and menu structure, and greater visibility into transport streams, the MPEG Series enables side-by-side monitoring of inputs ranging from SD-SDI to MPEG-4/H.264 in a single system.
"The MPEG Series gives users the ability to bring MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264 streams into the mainstream workflow, with a single operator monitoring all video streams regardless of target distribution platform or viewing device," said Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler president and CEO. "As video service providers face ongoing pressure to deliver high volumes of content across a variety of platforms with the utmost efficiency, the MPEG Series offers a valuable solution for flexible, cost-effective, multiformat monitoring."
Wohler MPEG Series monitors decode and provide convenient at-a-glance monitoring of program content from MPEG-2/4 ASI and Ethernet IP streams, as well as multi-rate SD, HD, and 3G-SDI inputs. Equipped with as many as four individual screens, the MPEG video monitors decode and display MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 signals via BNC or Ethernet inputs while giving users the ability to browse the PAT, PMT, and PID data for each selected stream. In addition to MPEG ASI and dual-input 3G/HD-SDI with loop-through, the MPEG monitors also accommodate HDMI video and audio with level meters, GPI, and tally.
Artel Video Systems, a leading provider of media transport solutions, is among the Wohler customers using MPEG Series monitors to reduce the cost and complexity of handling the various streams processed and distributed by today's broadcast and production facilities. Artel sales teams take advantage of the robust and still-expanding functionality and format support of the MPEG Series to demonstrate the remarkable flexibility of their own products.
"Given their ability to monitor video in the full variety of formats and provide useful information about it, MPEG Series video monitors serve an ideal extension to our multiformat media transport solutions," said Richard Dellacanonica, president, Artel. "Easily accommodating numerous formats, these Wohler monitors are a valuable solution for media routing centers and other facilities working with a wide array of video signals and formats."
In addition to enabling broader format support, more intuitive operation, and richer transport stream analysis, the new MPEG Series software release introduces SD-SDI support, enhanced menu structure, simplified input selection, and a status indicator for tables and sync, plus a detailed bandwidth display including overall TS rate and all of the sub-components.
