Wohler iON Makes NAB Show Debut
Wohler Technologies (Booth N3729) is demonstrating its next-generation iON monitoring solution, designed to meet current and future signal-management and confidence-monitoring needs on a single platform that can be remotely accessed and controlled from Web-enabled devices.
Using the iON platform, broadcasters can access all of Wohler’s confidence-monitoring capabilities from remote PC, Mac, smartphone, and tablet devices, with video and audio content streamed in real time for viewing and monitoring.
iON provides real-time streaming of audio, video, MPEG ASI, and VoIP sources, as well as associated metadata, from locally installed, modular hardware platforms that manage all I/O connections at their source. Audio, video, captioning/subtitling, loudness, MADI, and MPEG monitoring and analysis can be performed from a single user-configurable software interface.
The iON base-model design includes four bidirectional connections that can each be tasked as multichannel input or output. Secure access can be provided to multiple users, working on either Web-enabled devices or local control panels to view and monitor content. The solution’s future-proof modular design supports additional I/Os via additional cards in a compact, 1RU chassis with support for the addition of optional redundant power supplies. Information is provided to the user via a Gigabit Ethernet connection.
