Wohler has launched what it describes as a “budget-friendly” 16 channel audio/video monitor.

Wohler-1 iVAM-1

Wohler: The touchscreen philosophy of the iVAM1-1 is similar to the company’s established iAM series

The all new iVAM1-1 can monitor and meter up to 16 channels of 3G-SDI audio and video, plus two channels of analogue audio in a compact 1u format. Using a single 2.4in touchscreen, operators may toggle between video, meters and menus. A HDMI output allows additional monitoring of the currently monitored video source, while analogue XLR, headphone and selected 3G-SDI outputs are also included as standard. Upgrade options are available for those who want to add flexibility for monitoring AES3, MADI64 (including a fibre option), SMPTE 2110 and 2022. 

The company says the product’s touchscreen front panel uses mature design philosophies from previous iAM series products, while physical front panel controls provide access to main volume, balance, and auxiliary controls to supplement touch controls. Individual audio channels may be summed, soloed or muted by touch or mechanical control, in line with the functionality of previous iAM Series units (iAM MIX, iAM AUDIO, iAM VIDEO, iAM-12G-SDI). 

Mike Kelly, president, Wohler, said: “Wohler consistently strives to provide relevant solutions to keep up with evolving industry standards and customer needs. We are looking forward to the iVAM1-1 meeting incremental needs in the marketplace, especially in the budget space.” 

According to Wohler the product will be ready to ship in June.
