NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR MONITORING Wohler Technologies has announced that its new iAM-Video-2 multichannel audio and video monitoring and metering device will be shipping in the fourth quarter of 2016. The iAM- Video-2 displays video on a front panel touchscreen and can be equipped to monitor MPEG-IP, MPEG-ASI and SMPTE 2022 3G/HD/SD-SDI, among other things. It also supports a variety of audio and metering options including analogue, AES3 and MADI inputs, with additional options for AoIP formats including Dante, Ravenna and AES67 and a range of additional I/O options via an SFP interface. The company has also announced that its iAM-Audio-1 is already shipping. Craig Newbury, vice president of sales for Wohler, said: “Both the iAM-Video-2 and iAM-Audio-1 bring an important evolution to the audio and video monitoring currently available on the market as well as furthering the development of our iAM Series.” Additionally, Wohler has appointed Makarand Karanjkar as its director of engineering. Most recently chief technology officer at Prima Cinema, he has also worked for MobiTV and Dolby Laboratories. T&M Leader Electronics has added high dynamic range (HDR) support to its LV7390 rasteriser. The new LV7390-OP20 4k upgrade includes HDR measurement capabilities for the Hybrid Log Gamma, Dolby PQ and Sony SLOG-3 protocols. Kevin Salvidge, Leader’s European regional development manager, said: “This capability plus a compact 1U form-factor makes the LV7390 ideal for production environments that cannot accommodate a full size waveform monitor.” Also included with the 4k HDR upgrade is Leader’s CINEZONE HDR. This uses false colour to display areas of the image extending into HDR so that it can be used on non-HDR monitors. The LV7390 is a 3G/HD/ SD-SDI rasterizer that can be deployed on a desktop or rack-mounted in order to measure up to four source channels at the same time. At the same time Leader has appointed Wokingham-based Broadcast Service Centre (BSC) as its Accredited Service Partner for Europe. 22 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 119 NOVEMBER 2016 STORAGE Quantum has unveiled a tape storage platform called Scalar and three associated library products. The Scalar intelligent tape libraries, called Scalar i3, Scalar i6 and StorNext AEL6 appliance, are designed to help media facilities manage and store both legacy content and new content from different sources in data-intensive formats including UHD (Ultra High Definition), HDR (High Dynamic Range) and HFR (High Frame Rates). They are said to be very dense, reducing the overall storage footprint and, in turn, lessening a facilities’ power and cooling requirements. Dave Frederick, the senior director of media and entertainment at Quantum, said: “The industry-leading density and advanced features of our new Scalar and StorNext AEL tape archives make it easier and more cost-effective for media companies to hold onto more content - content they might once have thrown away but that could have future value - and to manage the much larger files generated by the shift toward UHD, HDR and HFR.” Watch now!
