India-based Times Now has adopted Wohler Technologies’ AMP1-8-M audio monitors in its studio.
Already a user of Wohler’s solutions, the India-based English-language news channel is deploying the AMP1-8-M as part of its HD equipment upgrade
Times Now, a 24-hour English-language news channel in India, has installed Wohler Technologies’ AMP1-8-M audio monitors as part of its equipment upgrade to HD.
Kalyan Chakravarthi, head of broadcast engineering for Times Network, explained that the channel is required to upgrade its existing audio monitoring units to keep up with the evolving inputs used in the industry.
He continued: “The AMP1-8-M is a 3G-SDI unit that monitors two groups of eight channels of audio, with good quality speakers, and within our budget. Times Network has used Wohler monitors (Wohler’s AMP2-16V units) in the past, and we have continued to be satisfied with its solutions.”
Designed for in-studio and remote productions, the AMP1-8-M provides selection and summing of up to eight SDI audio channels. Equipped with an intuitive operation for monitoring SDI audio signals, the AMP1-8-M also features adjustable volume and balance controls, clear display of levels and phase indications on 2.4-inch, LED-backlit LCD displays, with configurations that can be created, saved and recalled via an intuitive front panel interface.
Users are able to monitor the audio through built-in speakers, headphones or analogue speakers.
