TSL Products Shows New Features And Functionality

TSL Products has announced new features and functionality for its SAM-Q platform, PAM-IP and MPA1 audio monitoring products that make them more useful for IP-based workflows.

The TSL Products SAM-Q platform provides multiple operational modes and “behaviours,” the company said, that allow customers to select their preferred way of working based on their application, skillset or personal preference. The SAM-Q platform enables user to add new operational modes when required, including a brand-new audio phase metering mode and loudness monitoring modes.

SAM-Q includes three new loudness modes while also providing short-term, momentary and integrated loudness values over an Ethernet network. The SAM-Q-SDI system provides deep audio analysis, with up to eight independent loudness probes and the ability to calculate loudness values from a variety of program configurations from mono through to 9.1+4.

In addition, TSL is releasing the first of two administrative tools to the SAM-Q range. The first, SAM-Q-EDIT, allows SAM-Q-SDI owners to create, modify and edit their SAM-Q-SDI configurations using a standard PC. SAM-Q’s agile approach to audio monitoring, with licensed capabilities, remote monitoring and customer configurable behaviours, deliver solid operational and economical efficiencies throughout a truck or facility.

The SAM-Q-EDIT software allows SAM-Q-SDI owners to create, modify and edit their SAM-Q-SDI configurations using a standard PC.

New and existing SAM-Q-SDI customers can now also purchase MADI monitoring license options at any time, allowing one or both SDI inputs to be switched to and from MADI sources with ease. With up to 128 channels available and eight optional loudness probes, the SAM-Q-SDI becomes a powerful workhorse as well as a rackmount audio monitor.

TSL has also unveiled the MPA1-MIX-V, which features a re-designed user interface in direct response to customer feedback. The new interface specifically addresses the challenges of live production and is available in SDI, DANTE, MADI, AES and Analogue input formats. With the addition of the MIX-V variant, TSL MPA1 customers now have the option to choose the interface that best suits their broadcast production needs.

TSL has also updated its PAM-IP line and its expansive functionalities beyond audio and video monitoring. The PAM-IP is used for IP-based production and has been deployed in installations and POCs worldwide. The PAM-IP interfaces easily with third-party control systems, allowing ST-2110 multicast flow subscriptions to be managed using “In-Band” or “Out of Band” control protocols such as Ember+, NMOS IS-04/05 or TSL’s own RESTful API.

Subscription status can be monitored remotely over a network with the PAM-IP webpage, along with health status information such as IP packet counters, signal format and PTP status. Supporting ST-2110, ST-2022-6 and Dante networks, as well as more traditional SDI, AES and Analogue sources, the PAM-IP provides premium audio monitoring that aids in the transition to IP.
