TSl Products’ professional audio monitoring product range now allows the monitoring of the video, audio and associated metadata
TSL Products’ new PAM-IP is the world’s first uncompressed video over IP (S2022-6) range of audio monitors. It is designed to smooth the transition to an IP based workflow and is ideally suited to meet the needs of any facility involved in the production and transmission of live productions (such as sports, news, and live events).
The PAM-IP range can monitor video, audio and its associated metadata from either a traditional 3G-SDI connection or a S2022-6 IP stream. It is designed to work seamlessly in a hybrid environment where an SDI, AES and analogue based infrastructure can be monitored alongside an IP-based infrastructure. With this array of connectivity options, the PAM-IP range offers more format flexibility than any monitoring device currently available.
TSL Products recognizes that the transition to an all IP environment will not be immediate. For the foreseeable future at least, infrastructures will be hybrids where existing standards and technologies co-exist and interoperate with the new. When developing the PAM-IP TSL was very aware the IP format wars are far from over and as a result the company has developed a highly flexible platform that will allow the implementation of any Video over IP protocol or standard that may be of interest to customers.
Thanks to the new PAM-IP range, customers will be able to utilize their existing equipment alongside their IP infrastructure safe in the knowledge that the PAM-IP is capable of evolving with new Video and Audio over IP standards and protocols as they mature.
Until now, it was impossible to monitor audio directly from an IP stream without going through some cumbersome format conversion first.
With TSL Products’ new PAM-IP range of audio monitors, customers can now painlessly monitor uncompressed video and audio over IP without superfluous format conversion hardware, thereby smoothing their transition to an all IP workflow.
The IP variant of TSL Products’ flagship PAM1 and PAM2 audio monitors will become available in the summer of 2016. The PAM-IP range will be available with several options including: Video over IP (S2022-6 with other formats following), Audio over IP (Dante/AES 67) and 4k (12G and Quad 3G-SDI).
MPA (Monitor Plus Audio) range offers greater ease of use and excellent sound quality
NAB 2016 will mark the North American launch of the MPA (Monitor Plus Audio) product range. Highly configurable yet simple to use, the MPA range provides users with an intuitive yet flexible audio monitoring tool that is perfect for checking incoming feeds on an Outside Broadcast or creating a custom monitoring mix for production staff.
The MPA family offers greater ease of use and excellent sound quality. It is ideal for established I/O – such as MADI, SDI, AES-3 and analogue – while also embracing the industry’s rapid move to Audio over IP workflows with support for Dante and Ravenna.
The new products are available in two models: Solo offers the ability to listen to any channel, while Mix enables the user to create a simple monitoring mix. The shallow unit depth of 100mm makes them both ideal for the broadcast OB environment. The built-in web server enables all units to be configured, monitored and controlled remotely via an intuitive web interface.
One of the MPA’s key advantages is its ability to work across the multiple formats that are used in today’s production environment, as the industry moves away from baseband to an IP based infrastructure. This new generation of hybrid products allows our customers to embrace new technologies from multiple manufacturers without having to make compromises.
