At this year’s 2017 NAB Show, Wohler Technologies will be showcasing a variety of audio monitoring solutions that are available at an aggressive price point to meet the needs of a wide range of production professionals.

On display at the company’s exhibit booth will be the new Wohler Technologies AMP1-8-M dual input SDI 8-channel audio monitor, AMP1-2SDA 2-channel audio monitor and Audio over IP modules. The new AMP2-16V Series audio monitors will be shown with full support for Dante and Ravenna/AES67 audio networking.

With the AMP1-8-M and AMP1-2SDA, Wohler is providing unprecedented access to its advanced audio monitoring technology at a highly affordable price.  The introduction of AoIP modules for the AMP2-16V Series is part of a continued company initiative to bring high-quality audio monitoring solutions into the IP domain.

The AMP1-8-M offers fast, intuitive operation for monitoring SDI audio in the most demanding production applications at under $2000. Ideal for in-studio or remote productions, the AMP1-8-M provides instantaneous selection and summing of any four SDI audio pairs. It features adjustable volume and balance controls, clear display of levels, and phase indications on bright 2.4-inch, LED-backlit LCD displays, with configurations that can be created, saved and recalled via an intuitive front panel interface. Users can monitor through built-in speakers, headphones or analog outputs.

For those looking for essential monitoring capabilities in environments, including OB truck/vans and network/station facilities, the AMP1-2SDA offers Wohler’s high-quality audio monitoring in a compact 1RU 2-channel version. This simple-to-use design offers the capability to select from any available channel pair to monitor. The AMP1-2SDA features adjustable volume and balance controls, clear display of levels and phase indications on bright displays. The unit can monitor via its built-in speakers or headphones with automatic speaker muting when headphones are connected. The unit offers several input options: 3G/HD/SD-SDI, analog and AES3.

The AoIP modules for the AMP2-16V Series adds audio-over-IP monitoring functionality. It is a 16-channel, 2-RU A/V workstation with a complete suite of tools for analyzing and managing audio quality, level and loudness, metadata and more. By adding this module, thousands of existing users can begin monitoring audio using Dante or Ravenna/AES67 without a significant additional investment and without changing their existing workflows or cable installations.

The AMP2-16V offers 16 channels of simultaneous, mixed-format audio metering and management. Users are able to mix, sum and route program 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.
