The TSL Products MPA1-SOLO-IP, the latest addition to the company’s entry-level MPA1 audio monitor range. is equipped with the same feature set as the MPA1-SOLO-SDI, including “scroll to hear” as well as the ability to view video sources with the benefit of monitoring across redundant SDI and IP networks.
The new MPA1-SOLO-IP can host two Embrionix SFP modules for IP connectivity for redundant ST-2022-6 and ST-2110 audio and video monitoring. Borrowing design concepts from its MPA1-SOLO-SDI, the MPA1-SOLO-IP also supports SDI, AES and analog audio source monitoring via BNC or fiber via SFP+ port connection while the rack-mount enclosure retains a depth of 100 mm for compact deployment.
“With TSL’s expertise in IP-based solutions, we strived to design a compact audio monitor that aid broacasters in their transition towards IP,” says Stephen Brownsill, audio product manager at TSL Products. “In fast-paced production environments, it is essential that broadcasters have reliable, flexible tools that fit seamlessly into their operations, while offering ease of use and familiarity as personnel shift and move between productions. Whether monitoring redundant SDI infrastructures or redundant IP networks, the MPA1-SOLO-IP provides confi¬dence monitoring without compromise.”
The MPA1-SOLO-IP hass SNMP connectivity with additional integration to control systems via Ember+ and NMOS. This allows engineers to set pre-sets and operators to recall MPA1 states as part of a system salvo to help minimize risk and complexity. The range also offers a built-in web server, offering operators the ability to manage channel names and system parameters remotely over an Ethernet network, view audio levels, and signal status and format via a web GUI (graphic user interface).
