Wohler Expands MPEG Video Monitor Lineup
Wohler Technologies is expanding the company’s DVM line with three new MPEG video monitors that will be shown for the first time at the NAB show in two weeks.
Following the recent release of the DVM-2443 MPEG/ASI monitor with four 4.3-inch screens, Wohler will now also offer the new DVM-5210, a 5-RU system with two 10-inch screens; the DVM-4290, a 4-RU unit with two, 9-inch screens; and the DVM-3270, a 3-RU system with two, 7-inch screens. All of the DVM MPEG monitors provide advanced test and measurement features for convenient at-a-glance monitoring of program content from 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs and MPEG-2/4 ASI streams.
“Our growing DVM line offers best-in-class performance and functionality that previously were available to broadcasters only in more expensive solutions,” says Don Bird, chief marketing officer at Wohler. “As we continue to roll out additional DVM monitors in a variety of sizes and configurations, we’re providing broadcasters with expanded capabilities in confidence monitoring to keep pace with the broadening content distribution landscape.”
DVM series broadcast-quality video monitors decode and display MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 signals via BNC input while giving users the ability to browse the PAT, PMT, and PID tables for each selected stream. In addition to MPEG ASI and dual-input 3G/HD/SD-SDI with loop-thru, the DVM monitors also accommodate DVI, component, and composite video with audio level meters, GPI, and tally. Each monitor is capable of displaying in-picture audio level metering, video waveform, and vectorscope with classic CRT-style image calibration controls. Using precision scaling and gamma correction to produce the best image possible, each DVM monitor scales all video formats to fit on screen at the highest quality.
