SK Technology has been heavily involved with the HD broadcast revolution in Korea for the national networks as well as an educational network and government- and corporate-owned channels carried by the major networks. The distribution arrangement will enhance the market penetration of TSL Products’ solutions into the Korean broadcasting and program producers market, taking these facilities to the next level of compliance monitoring and surround production.

We’re delighted to have them as a partner and we’re confident that, with their support, the industry will respond well to our production workflow solutions.

“TSL Products has always created equipment that streamlines audio production for the broadcaster,” comments Byung Kug Kwak, President of SK Technology Co. Ltd. “With the advent of loudness compliance, a growing demand for surround production and delivery and multichannel audio monitoring throughout the broadcast production chain, we believe the industry will embrace the solutions offered by TSL. We have a very proactive sales team that offers excellent customer care from pre-sales to support to ensure customer satisfaction. This work ethic, coupled with TSL’s excellent reputation for reliability and ease of use, is a winning combination for the Korean market.

Equipment featured at BIRTV 2013 includes the new TouchMix Combo multi-channel monitoring system that can functionally take over audio chores should a main console fail. The TouchMix Combo, a powerful integration of TSL’s popular TouchMix (AVM-T-Mix) and TouchMix Pilot systems, can serve as a high-level backup structure for main console failure in a larger facility, or as a standalone audio mixer in a smaller production situation. Five Touchmix Combo Systems are already in place in Shanghai Media Group (SMG) production facilities. The dual Touchmix Combo systems are installed in five television production studios as backup solutions for each studio’s main audio consoles.
Surround production and monitoring are also important factors in the Asian market. TSL Products will showcase the PAM PiCo Five, the latest version of the popular, handheld audio/loudness compliance meter, now with loudness logging capability. For those looking to expand their surround production capabilities, the company will also be demonstrating the new SoundField X-1 Upmix/Downmix Processor. The X-1 accurately handles ingest of surround material into a stereo workflow, while providing a phase-coherent reconstruction of the original surround signal for HD broadcast.
The new TallyMan TMCP Control Panel gives push button ease of operation with any third-party router through the TallyMan controller.

Providing a real-time unprecedented whole view of your broadcast system, TallyMan is available in four different form factors with a variety of connectivity using opto-isolated GPI inputs, relay or open connector GPI outputs, RS422 serial ports and high speed Ethernet connectivity.
