Wohlers eight-track AMP2-E8MDA multi-format audio monitor
Wohler has introduced its AMP2-E8MDA multi-format audio monitor, designed to process and monitor up to eight channels from a Dolby E or AC-3 (Dolby Digital) bit stream, an HD-SDI or SD-SDI bit stream, two sets of four AES/EBU signal pairs (balanced and unbalanced), or eight balanced analogue channels.
According to the manufacturer, the ‘unique’ acoustic design of the AMP2-E8MDA provides optimally focused sound in a near-field environment of approximately 30cm to 90cm. This is said to allow for higher SPL for the operator while reducing overall ambient sound and adjacent bay crosstalk.
Eight high-resolution 53-segment tricolour LED bar graph audio-level metres provide instant and accurate level monitoring. Meanwhile, a high-contrast LCD display on the front panel shows the user settings such as status, type of signal, channel selection, mute status, and phase/correlation.
