Wohler Releases Optional Output Signal Routing for iAM Mix
Combine and route input signals to various destination outputs
SAN FRANCISCO, MARCH 20, 2019 — Wohler Technologies is pleased to announce a new output routing option for their iAM-Mix products. Available for both the current iAM-Mix-8 and iAM-Mix-16, it offers the user the flexibility to combine and route input signals to various destination outputs. Options for different treatment are the speakers, the headphone, and supported outputs, including Analog, AES and AoIP). Additional options allow volume control or volume pass-through. This new software feature allows complete control over the audio signal for complex environments. When licensed, the Common Output Routing (COR) screen contains a matrix which forms an easy way for customers to setup the wide variety of input to output routing and mixing capabilities.
This optional per unit license is engineered to be easy to use. A matrix is provided that allows up to 16 monitored channels to be routed individually (or not) to speakers/headphone, analog XLRs, AES pairs 1-4 or AoIP Pairs 30- 31 (if AoIP is a purchased option). Trim, volume and mute options can also be applied within the matrix. Finalized settings are saved to a preset.
“We enjoyed the challenges, based on feedback from multiple customers, to engineer this functionality into the iAM Series products” says Amol Natekar, Wohler’s engineering manager. “This feature really shows the powerful architecture of this unit and why so many broadcasters around the world are choosing our iAM Series units for their new or upgraded facilities.”
The iAM series units support multiple signal options: analog, AES3 and MADI inputs, AoIP formats (Dante, Ravenna, AES67), 3G/HD/SD-SDI and options for VoIP formats (SMPTE 2110, SMPTE 2022, MPEG 2/4), as well as a growing range of additional I/O options via its small form-factor pluggable (SFP) interface. All iAM Series products use SFP slots to enable simple adaptation of interfaces and a wide selection of signal I/O.
