Wohler AMP2-E8MDA3G overview

  • 1Description

The AMP2-E8-MDA-3G 8-Channel Dolby Audio Monitor from Wohler Technologies is an in-rack audio monitor capable of outputting and displaying encoded, multi-channel (up to 8 channels) audio from Dolby E or Dolby Digital streams, de-embedded from either 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, or SD-SDI. The ability to switch seamlessly between encoded or discretely embedded sources, in addition to providing full, simultaneous demuxed output of the multichannel source, this audio monitor offers enhanced operational capability in a single monitor unit. This monitor features 3 audiophile-quality drivers, 3 power amplifiers, 2 speakers and amplifiers that reproduce midrange and high frequency information in stereo, while a third amplifier / driver combination handles summed LF information below the 500 Hz crossover point.

The sleek design provides optimally focused sound for operators in an ultra near field environment 1 to 3' (0.3 to 0.9m) and offers performance comparable to that of many separate monitor pairs without installation hassles and awkward speaker placements. This enables a higher SPL for the operator while reducing overall ambient sound and adjacent bay crosstalk. Extended HF response reveals potential problems with audio whine or hiss, and electronic, rather than acoustic, cancellation of bass frequencies provides positive audible detection of reversed polarity audio feeds. This audio monitor is designed for high quality, multi-channel, digital, and analog audio monitoring in a compact unit. It is suitable for VTR bays, mobile production vehicles, teleconferencing installations, multimedia systems, satellite links, cable TV facilities, and on-air radio studios.
