[SatNews] Wohler Technologies will showcase its MPEG Series DVB-ASI and IPTV monitors, the industry's first universal monitoring solutions, at the 2014 NAB Show.
The MPEG Series enables a single operator to monitor all video streams, even those destined for delivery via Web portals and mobile services, from a single system and interface. This consolidation of MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264 streams into the mainstream workflow significantly reduces the cost and complexity of handling the various streams processed and distributed by today's broadcast and production facilities.
Wohler MPEG monitors decode and provide at-a-glance monitoring of program content from MPEG-2/4 ASI and Ethernet IP streams, as well as SD/HD/3G-SDI inputs. The MPEG video monitors identify, decode, and display both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 signals (input via BNC or Ethernet) in high resolution while giving users the ability to browse the PAT, PMT, PID, EIT, and NIT data (both ATSC and DVB tables) for each selected stream. In addition to MPEG ASI and dual-input 3G/HD-SDI with loop-through, the MPEG monitors accommodate HDMI video and audio with level meters, GPI, and tally.
Convenient monitoring capabilities include Dolby Digital and Digital+ decoding, as well as the capacity to decode as many as 12 audio groups. In-picture level metering of up to 16 audio channels is provided for both average and PPM (peak) levels with selectable meter scales. Throughout the 2014 NAB Show, Wohler will feature the MPEG-4290, a 4-RU system with two 9-inch screens; the MPEG-3270, a 3-RU system with two 7-inch screens; and the 2-RU MPEG-2443 with four individual 4.3-inch screens.
