Wohler enhances Touch-it Digital for NAB

Wohler hits NAB with the new three-RU Touch-it Digital, offering multichannel video monitoring
functionality via dual seven-inch high-resolution color LCD displays.
The left monitor is a touch screen that displays from four to 16
thumbnail images. When one of these images is touched, that video
source appears on the right monitor at full size and its HD/SD-SDI
source signal is sent to an unbalanced output and to a VGA output for
monitoring on an external display. Another version, Touch-it Hear-it,
allows operators to interface visually with an IP-based intercom system.

The company will also introduce Wohler Plus, a radical new approach to processing and monitoring, providing a variety of DSP options so that each unit can be configured for the specific functions required by a facility.

The modular system features flexible inputs (16 channels or 8 AES pairs) and outputs, alarms, monitoring, and metering, along with multiple channel synchronizing and shuffling of channels for 5.1 or 7.1 signal confidence. Optional inputs include AES and multirate serial digital embedded audio with Dolby encoding. The two-RU Wohler Plus features a high-resolution TFT screen and on-board menu system for control, as well as Ethernet, RS-232, and GPIO interfaces.

Also look for the modular openGear line that uses a standard card and a choice of IP core applications including an HD format dual-channel logo keyer, and an HDVANC data inserter/extractor, as well as the HDCC-200A HD/SD-SDI dual-channel closed-caption encoder/decoder bridge.
