Video, audio and data monitoring solutions specialist Wohler Technologies has released a Dante module for its AMP2-16V Series Audio Monitors. The introduction is part of a company initiative to bring Wohler audio monitoring solutions into the AoIP domain.
The Dante-capable module adds audio-over-IP monitoring functionality to the AMP2-16V platform – a 16-channel, 2Uhigh A/V unit with a suite of tools for analysing and managing audio quality, level and loudness and metadata. A Ravenna-capable module will also be released shortly, adding additional audio-over-IP protocol options for users.
‘Wohler is broadening its capabilities to meet the growing demand for monitoring solutions that support the latest trends in the broadcast and production industry, such as audio-over-IP,’ says, Wohler VP of Sales, Craig Newbury. ‘For example, we continue to invest in the popular AMP2-16V platform by adding new modules that are most useful to our customers. Ultimately, this is all about providing greater value by enhancing product features available to our existing users and by simplifying the transition towards new signal types.’
The AMP2-16V offers 16 channels of simultaneous, mixed-format audio metering and management. Users are able to mix, sum and route programme audio live without the need for a separate audio console. The monitor features two large, customizable high-resolution LCD screens to display application-specific audio/video data such as meters/clusters, phase indication, loudness, Dolby presence and hotkey assignments.
