Australia's Global Television Installs Wohler Audio And Video Monitoring Equipment

PANORAMAdtv, the video products division of Wohler Technologies, has announced that Australia's Global Television is installing Wohler audio and video monitoring equipment in two new state-of-the-art HD OB trucks.
Wohler's compact HD/SD monitoring solutions will simplify the high-resolution audio and video monitoring of Global Television's programming, which includes many of the country's highest profile reality, entertainment and sports programs.
Terry Manley, Chief Engineer at Global Television, said: "As the first units in Australia to deploy 3Gb/s ready infrastructure, our new HD trucks represent leading-edge broadcast technologies. The Wohler equipment is an optimal fit, enabling robust and flexible monitoring of digital audio and high-resolution video while taking up very little space in our truck. Space, power and weight savings are critical to cost-effective mobile production and Wohler's monitoring solutions meet all these requirements while offering the premium performance our clients demand in HD production.”
The extensive installation of Wohler gear within the Global Television OB trucks includes MON series rackmount LCD HD/SD video monitors, along with Wohler's digital audio monitoring bridges for HD/SD video and digital audio monitoring. The compact yet flexible design of Wohler's MON high-resolution display monitors is ideal for confidence monitoring of multiple video feeds in mobile applications where space is at a premium.
The MON4-2W/HR features four side-by-side 4.3-inch wide-format LCD panels, each with dedicated recessed controls for contrast and brightness, native 16:9 aspect ratio and 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. Each LCD is mounted in a cylinder and thus may be rotated approximately ±30 degrees in the vertical plane for optimum operator viewing angles.
A total of nine MON4-2W/HR HD/SD rackmount LCD video monitors are being installed in each truck, providing 36 individual widescreen displays in just 18 RU. These units will support the bulk of Global Television's video monitoring activity. Seven MON1-T/7W-HR 7-inch high-resolution HD/SD monitors will be mounted adjacent to Tektronix Waveform Monitors in a Tektronix tub to facilitate detailed signal analysis.
Each OB truck will be equipped with 14 of Wohler's AMP1-S8MDA HD/SD embedded audio monitoring bridges and a single E MON-1/M audio bridge with built in Dolby E decoding. The 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 accurate and instantaneous visual level monitoring at a glance.
Sydney-based Quinto Communications supplied the Wohler gear for Global Television. Tom Pavlcic, General Manager of Quinto Communications, said: "This will be the largest deployment of Wohler monitoring equipment in an OB environment within Australia."
The first of the two HD OB units will hit the road by the end of 2008 and the second will be completed in early 2008.
