Hayward, CA (October 24, 2008)–The host broadcaster for the 2008 Beijing Games purchased and deployed dozens of Wohler audio and video monitoring systems across 37 different venues to support confidence and contribution-feed monitoring, according to PANORAMAdtv, the video products division of Wohler Technologies Inc.
In total, 125 MON4-2W/HR high-resolution display monitors and 17 AMP1-S8MDA audio monitors supported live broadcasts from in and around Beijing.
“The compact yet flexible design of MON series monitors is ideal for confidence monitoring of multiple video feeds, particularly when space is at a premium, and the AMP1-S8MDA provides flexible multiformat monitoring with high-resolution level meters that provide accurate and instantaneous visual level monitoring at a glance,” said Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler’s president and CEO. “Together these systems provide the excellent mix of utility and convenience required for large-scale monitoring during high-profile live broadcasts.”
The MON4-2W/HR is a four-display high-resolution color video monitor capable of monitoring either SD-SDI or HD-SDI signals using an all-digital signal processing (DSP) path in 2RU. The monitor’s 4.3-inch wide-format LCD panels are situated side-by-side in cylinders that may be rotated approximately ±30 degrees in the vertical plane for optimum operator viewing angles. Dedicated recessed controls enable adjustment of contrast and brightness for each panel. The MON4-2W/HR features a native 16:9 aspect ratio and offers 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.
