Wohler Technologies has announced the release of two new products in its award-winning iAM Series of intelligent, adaptable, rack-mounted monitoring equipment: iAM-Mix and iAM-Audio.
These new signal- and data-monitoring devices provide broadcasters, OB operators, and studio facilities a range of network-enabled features that can adapt to continually evolving requirements and can be controlled by third-party software via an API. Additional features such as browser-based remote monitoring are already planned.
In a first for the industry, the iAM platform offers a browser-based GUI to complement Wohler's traditional front-panel monitoring interfaces for remote control, and future options for remote monitoring, and logging. The use of SFPs enables simple, in situ adaptation of interfaces and a wide selection of signal I/O, which in combination with other software-defined features create a smooth upgrade path to new and emerging technologies, such as Dante and AES67.
iAM-Mix has a straightforward front-panel control surface for individual master and per-channel mixing and muting, ideal for operators that require bulletproof auditory monitoring from a range of sources. A simple yet full-featured platform for eight- or 16-level control out-of-the-box, audio-only monitoring, iAM-Mix integrates with popular A/V router solutions to push and pull channel-name data.
iAM-Audio introduces touch-panel interfaces to allow intuitive command and control of the unit and new I/O options including Dante and Ravenna combined with rich data displays and Wohler's world-renowned audio monitoring.
iAM-MIX and iAM-AUDIO are available for order now. Wohler will demonstrate both new products at the 2016 NAB Show in booth N6809.
