TSL Products announces a multitude of updates for audio monitoring devices
TSL Products has updated its audio monitoring offerings including its Sam-Q platform, MPA1 and Pam-IP lines.
The Sam-Q platform is claimed to be the only audio monitoring platform able to adapt to the needs of its users, regardless of their skill set or task at hand. Equipped with multiple operational modes and behaviours, as well as the capacity to allow customers to add or restrict new modes and behaviours over time, the Sam-Q-SDI now includes new features such as audio phase metering and loudness monitoring.
New and existing Sam-Q-SDI customers can now also purchase an optional MADI monitoring license at any time, allowing one or both SDI inputs to be switched to and from MADI sources with ease. Additionally, TSL is releasing Sam-Q-Edit, a free of charge configuration tool that allows Sam-Q-SDI owners to create, modify and edit their Sam-Q-SDI configurations using a PC.
TSL Products has also expanded its MPA1 range with the addition of the MPA1-Solo-IP, as well as an updated MPA1-MIX-V range. The company has said the new MPA1-Solo-IP offers cost-effective ST-2022-6 and ST-2110 audio and video monitoring, complete with redundant network connectivity. Built on TSL’s MPA1-Solo-SDI, the MPA1-Solo-IP offers two SFP+ ports for IP connectivity in addition to SDI, AES and analogue audio source monitoring, while retaining the depth of 100mm for compact and lightweight deployment found on all MPA1 audio monitors.
The MPA1-Mix-V range of audio monitors features a re-designed user interface to specifically address the challenges of live production. With its wide range of input formats, customers can select the interface that best fits their production needs. Coupled with the SNMP control capabilities found on all MPA1 audio monitors, the MPA1-Mix-V range of audio monitors creates clear opportunities for integration with broadcast control systems, serving to maximise both operational and engineering efficiency.
The company has also updated its Pam-IP line and its expansive functionalities beyond audio and video monitoring. The Pam-IP allows ST-2110 multicast flow subscriptions to be managed using ‘In-Band’ or ‘Out of Band’ network connections and control protocols such as Ember+, NMOS IS-04/05 or TSL’s own Restful API. Subscription status can be monitored remotely over a network with the Pam-IP webpage, along with health status information such as IP packet counters, signal format and PTP status.
Alongside these updates, TSL announced support for Audinate’s Dante Domain Manager across its entire range of Dante audio monitors including its Pam1-IP, Pam2-IP, MPA1-Solo-Dante, MPA1-Mix-Dante and MPA1-Mix-Dante-V.
Stephen Brownsill, audio product manager at TSL Products, said: “With so many changes occurring in the industry, there is a responsibility on technology providers to ensure that systems integrators, broadcasters, and media owners are armed with the latest knowledge and tools to make their jobs easier. TSL continues to focus on developing audio monitoring solutions that provide integration opportunities with third party control solutions, as well as incorporating new platforms that take audio monitoring to the next level. We pride ourselves on building solutions that simplify operator workflow and allow customers to choose exactly how they want to work.”
