With the industry transition to software-centric, IP-based technology, TSL has updated a number of its control, audio monitoring and power management solutions. TSL's new products aim to simplify SDI/IP workflows and streamline operations supporting customers during the transition to IP. The latest versions, including compliance with the emerging SMPTE 2110 family of standards, are being unveiled here.
TSL Products’ catalogue of audio monitoring solutions provide practical functionality for various broadcast applications, from critical level metering, to integrity monitoring of surround sound for TV channels on transmission. IBC is witnessing updates to its MPA1 Dante confidence monitoring series to include support of AES-67 (and thereby further support for Ravenna and Hydra2 networks). AES-67 defines the IP audio transport layer in SMPTE 2110.
TSL Products’ PAM-IP audio monitoring devices, which feature twin Ethernet ports, can also now be used either in Dante or AES-67, modes, making them ideal for use across the SDI to IP infrastructure transition, as the installation moves towards a unified SMPTE solution.
Both ranges also now feature SNMP monitoring and control, which means they can be managed remotely by TSL Products’ TallyMan or other SNMP management systems for the first time. Existing users of the MPA1 can install the improved functionality as a free download.
Chris Exelby, MD, TSL Products, said, “We are the trusted partner, providing solutions which support our customers, allowing them to concentrate on producing great content while we take care of the complexities of an industry in transition to IP.”
