TSL ensures Guangdong TV is World Cup compliant
CHINA: Guangdong TV Centre is to use TSL Products’ audio monitoring equipment to help deliver this year’s FIFA World Cup coverage to more than 117 million viewers in China. The manufacturer has supplied SAM1-3GM studio audio monitoring units, a Pam PiCo Master 5.1 Surround/Loudness Compliance Meter and an entry-level MPA1-3G unit to the organisation’s new purpose-built HD production suite. The equipment will be used to ensure compliance with national loudness standards and was installed by Suntec Broadcast Technology Ltd.
‘With live action feeds coming in from the 12 venues in Brazil covering the World Cup, mixed with on-site and local commentary, having reliable audio confidence monitoring through the MPA and SAM units and loudness compliance logging through the Pam PiCo is a must for this massive live event,’ said Howard Hong, principle engineer for Suntec. ‘We chose TSL Products equipment because they offer rock solid performance, straightforward functionality and an abundance of features critical to the quality assurance and loudness mission.’
The TSL units are installed in key positions in the control room and rack room for confidence monitoring of multiple audio streams. The SAM1-3GM will allow the station’s operators to define individual channels as stereo, mono or 5.1 with instantaneous downmixing of surround sources for stereo compatibility monitoring of tournament matches.
