Wohler Technologies has collaborated with local partner Audiopole and France Télévisions to provide a rapid solution for the broadcasters’ monitoring needs.
The three companies identified the additional audio monitoring functionality that France Télévisions desired from its existing AMP1-16M monitoring units, and Wohler delivered a software beta version for testing. France Télévisions then approved the software and ordered additional AMP1-16M units.
France Télévisions requested a modification to its existing AMP1-16M units to enable a new monitoring workflow. Wohler delivered what has become part of the latest firmware (version 4.0) for the AMP1-16M. Now France TV, France 24, and EuroNews all take advantage of this new monitoring approach.
Jean-Philippe Blanchard, director of the broadcast division at Audiopole, commented, "Given how quickly the solution was delivered and approved by France Télévisions, I think this is a very good example of perfect cooperation between a manufacturer and a broadcaster and how they can work together to improve a product."
"Wohler monitoring products are designed to be versatile systems that help users work the way they want to work,” said Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler president and CEO. “We use feedback from our customers to refine the design and functionality of all our products so that they yield the performance required, and the modification we made for France Télévisions is just one of many examples of this proactive approach to both product development and customer service."
