Wohlers AMP2-S8MDA Experiences Record SuccessDual format HD-SDI/SD-SDI audio monitor welcomed in emerging HD environment (September 10, 2004)
Wohlers new 8 channel dual-format HD & SD SDI audio monitor, first introduced at NAB 2004, has become one of their most outstanding success stories to date, thanks to its adaptability in an emerging HD environment. The 2RU AMP2-S8MDA crowns the range of AMP-S8 series of Audio monitors and converters, offering 8 channel audio monitoring from AES/EBU embedded in SDI or HD-SDI, AES/EBU and Analogue inputs.
A Speaker System Plus Much More
What really makes this unit stand out is that its not just a speaker system, but it also offers 8 high resolution LED level meters with VU and/or PPM ballistics, it acts as a D to A converter, shows phase correlation between any selected channel pair, and functions as an SDI demuxer for 8 channels simultaneously. This compact unit is among the hardest working in the industry, combining a wide range of functions into just 2RU of rack space.
Dual-Mode HD & SD
With many organizations now making the transition to HD, or at least examining its feasibility, this unit can be the vital missing link, just ask ESPN who rely on this unit as a critical component of their monitoring in a new HD facility just opened. Both HD-SDI and SD-SDI may be input on the same connector, with the unit autodetecting the format, and demuxing any two selected audio groups as well as providing a reclocked SDI output - so for those who have monitoring equipment which wont take SDI embedded audio, or cant switch between HD & SD on the fly, this unit will make it happen.
