TSL PAM2-3G16 AUDIO MONITOR EARMARKED FOR NEP VISIONS OB
Maidenhead, UK 26 May 2010: TSL Professional Product Groups PAM2-3G16 audio monitor has been selected as the audio monitor of choice for new OB vehicles for NEP Visions, the largest independent outside broadcast facilities company in the UK.
NEP Visions Head of Sound Paul Fournier said, TSL has made what was a complicated job much, much easier. We are going to view discrete component audio in this truck, which means that we need the ability to look at all 16 channels of audio available in four groups of an SDI signal, which can be stereo, mono, 5.1 or any combination. I can view four groups of embedded audio or eight AES pairs at a glance, and the video confidence display is of a quality synonymous with OLED technology, which is a significant bonus.
Because the PAM2 is British made we also have professional, readily available backup from TSL should we ever need it, and thats vitally important because we rely more and more on backup from manufactures than our own people, who these days are often pushed to the limit. The bottom line is that with the PAM2-3G16 we now have a tool that allows us to focus on and manipulate any facet of a 16 channel signal while ensuring that it maintains its original quality.
The Royal Television Society Technology Innovation Award-winning PAM2-3G16 also includes the ability to monitor ITU-R BS.1770 loudness levels, which are represented as a moving horizontal line superimposed across the bargraph display with an alphanumeric value shown on screen.
In traditional loudspeakers, crossover is responsible for a great deal of quality loss. A crossover produces a pair of signals which should, if added back together, recreate the original input. In most loudspeakers, this doesnt happen, whereas in all of TSLs active audio speakers the lossless recombination of signal is standard.
TSL Sales Manager David Cheng said, The PAM2-3G16 has, again and again, proven itself as the right technology, designed and manufactured by the right people for the right applications. We are thrilled that NEP Visions has chosen the unit and expect that their ongoing experience with PAM2 audio monitoring will further contribute to the units current success and future implementation.
TSL is an international, and truly independent, broadcast systems integrator which also designs, manufactures and sells a unique range of TSL-branded products. For additional information on TSL products and services, please visit www.tsl.co.uk.
