Hayward, CA (April 10, 2008)–Wohler Technologies Inc. announced its new WohlerPlus line of modular audio processors, which are intended to address the entire audio signal chain within digital broadcast operations. The configurable WohlerPlus units are designed to counter the “all-or-nothing” functionality of dedicated processing systems.
“WohlerPlus products offer a radical approach to audio processing and monitoring, providing a variety of DSP options that can be configured to deliver just the right functionality for a given facility or application,” said Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler president and CEO. “This flexibility extends the life of the product, which can be reconfigured by users as their operational needs evolve. For broadcasters working with WohlerPlus systems, a change in processing requirements no longer requires investment in an entirely new system.”
The modular system features five processor slots with flexible I/O benefiting from 16 channels or eight AES pairs per card–five cards per system–and includes both monitoring and metering. Other options will include alarms, multiple-channel synchronization and shuffling of channels for 5.1 or 7.1 signal confidence.
Optional inputs will include multi-rate serial digital embedded audio with Dolby decoding. The 2-RU WohlerPlus features a high-resolution TFT screen and on-board menu system for control, as well as Ethernet and RS-232. WohlerPlus units can be operated through an integrated menu interface or, in the near future, via Ethernet and RS-232.
