Wohler Adds New Dual-Interface Units to Video Monitoring Series

Wohler Technologies has extended its RM LCD video monitoring series with three new dual-interface units that provide flexible confidence monitoring of HD/SD-SDI and composite video with embedded audio in the production environment.

Measuring just 2RU in height, the RM-2443W-2HD incorporates four 4.3-inch widescreen LCDs, each of which features 480×270 resolution with 16.7 million colors. The 3RU RM-3270W-2HD features two 7-inch widescreen LCDs, each with 800×480 resolution and 16.7 million colors, and the 4RU RM-4290W-2HD incorporates two 9-inch widescreen LCDs with 800×480 resolution and 16.2 million colors.

“The slim design and rich functionality of our dual-interface RM series products make them a smart choice for space-constrained production environments, and their light weight and low power requirements add to cost savings, particularly in mobile applications,” said Kim Templeman-Holmes, vice president of global sales and marketing at Wohler. “Equipped with high-resolution displays, integrated speakers, and flexible inputs capable of handling analog and HD/SD-SDI inputs, the RM-2443W-2HD, RM-3270W-2HD, and RM-4290W-2HD offer robust feature sets critical to effective monitoring.”

Ideal for use in mobile trucks, news and transmission control rooms, and duplication and post-production facilities, each new RM series dual-interface LCD rack includes two auto-sensing HD/SD-SDI and analog composite inputs with support for embedded audio, complemented by eight-channel audio meters (VU and PPM). Operators have access to the correct tools for shot composition in any environment with safe area markers, underscan, and aspect ratio and blue-only support. Additional display features include ANC time code, in-monitor UMD, tri-color tally, and H/V delay.

In addition to providing two-channel analog audio support, these new additions to Wohler’s RM series support one-channel-pair audio monitoring via a headphone jack for all three models and built-in speakers for the RM-3270W-2HD and RM-4290W-2HD. All three of the new dual-interface monitors will come standard with an on-screen waveform display.
