NEP Australia Buys Significant Number Of iAM-AUDIO Units

News Image
Wohler Technologies has announced that NEP Australia has purchased a significant number of iAM-AUDIO units.

The audio-monitoring solutions will be included in NEP's new IP-enabled production 'Hubs' in Sydney and Melbourne. Wohler Technologies' partner, AV Group Technologies led by Managing Director Adrian Chespy, is providing local support to NEP for the installation after brokering the purchase.

"Wohler Technologies is a trusted and well-respected company in the signal monitoring industry," said Marc Segar, director of technology, NEP Australia. "It was an easy decision for us to choose Wohler for this innovative and groundbreaking installation. The company's new iAM Series represents a flexible platform for us to easily move our monitoring into the IP domain, while still being able to utilize traditional formats such as MADI and SDI, if required."

Enabling multiple simultaneous outside broadcasts, NEP Hubs will be the world's largest networked broadcast centers. Based on an IP core, the Hubs allow for remote, distributed production - meaning cameras and microphones will be located at the venue, with most of the production team based at offsite Hubs. Designed for large multi-camera sports broadcasts, these new centers will accommodate Australia's most-followed football leagues - National Rugby League (NRL) and Australian Rules Football (AFL) - as well as A-League football (soccer) and other popular sports from 29 venues across the country.

All iAM Series monitors incorporate high-quality hardware with powerful upgradable software components combined with an on-board Web server allowing multiple units on the same network to be monitored, controlled and updated via a browser-based user interface and via API calls from third-party connected control devices. It is an ideal solution for any broadcast application that requires a compact unit for monitoring an increasing range of audio/video parameters from a developing range of signal types.

The iAM Series uses small form-factor pluggable (SFP) slots to enable a wide selection of signal I/O. This, in combination with other software-defined features, creates a smooth upgrade path to new and emerging audio protocols, such as Dante and AES67, as they become relevant to users. The line is designed to ensure that customers have the best available, and most innovative, features through continued updates and licensable options.

The iAM-AUDIO introduces touch-panel interfaces to allow intuitive command and control of the unit and new I/O options, including Dante and Ravenna, combined with rich data displays and Wohler's world-renowned audio monitoring.

NEP's Sydney and Melbourne production Hubs are under construction and will be operational for the start of the AFL and NRL seasons in March 2018.
