Tachyon(R) Wormhole(TM) Automated File-Based Retiming Solution
Tachyon(R) Wormhole(TM) is a file-based retiming solution that enables the automated plus-or-minus run-time adjustment of media assets while preserving not only video and audio quality, but also closed caption/subtitle integrity. Based on the Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM) running Cinnafilm's award-winning Tachyon algorithms, Tachyon Wormhole allows content owners and broadcasters to meet specific customers' length requirements cost-effectively and efficiently. In many cases, this solution enables users to replace a great deal of expensive specialized hardware with a single server at a fraction of the cost.

AMP2-E16V Series Modular Audio/Video Processing Monitor
The AMP2-E16V monitor's feature list continues to be the longest in the industry, yet the product is operated with one-touch simplicity. In addition to its top-quality audio system, it features simultaneous multiformat monitoring, quick program selection, instant stereo downmix, loudness monitoring, internal channel mixing including SDI re-embedding, and audio delays. The monitor also includes a wide variety of meter scales and ways to view meters, video, and Dolby or SMPTE 2020 metadata.
The AMP2-E16V offers Dolby Zoom, Dolby E line position, and CRC error monitoring, as well as automatic system configuration based upon signal inputs, 32 system-configuration presets, an internal help system, and software updates via Ethernet. Audio processor card options facilitate easy configuration for multiple SDI, AES I/O, and analog I/O signals with connections to external surround systems.
A new AVB Monitoring Option card allows AVB channels to be mixed, level-adjusted, and monitored alongside AES, SDI, analog, and other input types, and in the same fashion. Further enhancements include new processing modules and newly developed software that expand the feature set and capabilities to include loudness monitoring and extended audio interfacing.

AMP1-S8-MDA Multiformat Audio Monitor
The AMP1-S8-MDA is a complete yet compact multichannel audio monitoring solution capable of monitoring audio from 3G/HD-SDI/SD-SDI, AES/EBU, and analog signal sources. The 1-RU system processes and monitors up to eight channels from an HD-SDI or SD-SDI bit stream, two sets of four AES/EBU signal pairs (balanced and unbalanced), or eight balanced analog channels. Eight high-resolution, 26-segment tricolor LED bar-graph audio-level meters show simultaneous VU and PPM for superior level-metering. A convenient high-contrast LCD display on the front panel shows the user settings and status, type of signal, channel selection, mute status, and phase/polarity relationships.
The monitor's unique design provides optimally focused sound for operators in an ultra-near-field (1 to 3 feet) working environment and offers performance comparable to that of many separate monitor pairs without the installation hassles, awkward speaker placements, and "added-on" look. This design provides for a higher SPL for the operator while reducing overall ambient sound and adjacent bay crosstalk. Extended high-frequency response reveals potential problems with audio whine or hiss, and electronic rather than acoustic cancellation of bass frequencies provides positive audible detection of out-of-phase (reversed polarity) audio feeds.

RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM) Version 9
The award-winning version 9 of the Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM) offers broadcasters a variety of powerful tools that boost the efficiency of file-based workflows for multiplatform media delivery. The platform enables fully compliant OTT offerings for leading formats, including MPEG-DASH, HLS, and Microsoft Smooth Streaming, and aids broadcasters and other content producers in meeting the array of target bit rates, resolutions, and frame rates necessary for today's content delivery ecosystems.
The media processing engine parallelizes complex audio loudness correction alongside the video at unprecedented speeds. Along with optimized video pipeline features such as anamorphic video handling, 2K/4K UHD support, and bit depths of up to 16-bit YUV, the RadiantGrid platform has been enhanced with the RadiantGrid Detect and Correct(TM) video legalization option, which leverages Wohler's unique RightHue(TM) algorithm to ensure comprehensive NTSC and PAL color compliance within the file-based domain.

MPEG DVB-ASI and IPTV Monitors
Providing functionality critical for facilities migrating toward IP-oriented distribution networks, the award-winning MPEG Series monitors decode and provide convenient at-a-glance monitoring of program content from MPEG-2/4 ASI and Ethernet IP streams, as well as 3G/HD-SDI inputs. To meet broadcasters' increasing need for stream-based monitoring, the MPEG video monitors identify, decode, and display in high resolution both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 signals (input via BNC or Ethernet) 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 audio with level meters, GPI, and tally. Convenient monitoring capabilities include Dolby Digital and DigitalPlus decoding, as well as the capacity to decode as many as 12 audio groups. In-picture level metering of up to 16 channels of audio is provided for both average and PPM (peak) levels with selectable meter scales.
