The Wohler Audio Metadata Analysis System monitors metadata and passes it to an included PC software package via TCP/IP, as well as providing alerts operators to metadata parameters that are outside the set parameters.
Wohler Technologies has introduced a monitor, analyzer and alarm system designed to detect problems with audio metadata.
The Wohler Audio Metadata Analysis System provides a clear indication of metadata parameters and allows unattended checking of entire programs through logging. It monitors metadata and passes it to an included PC software package via TCP/IP, as well as providing alerts operators to metadata parameters that are outside the set parameters.
Audio metadata contains more than 30 parameters for each program that is carried, many of which can directly affect audio playback. Used incorrectly, parameters such as dialog level, audio coding mode, dynamic range control and downmixing can combine to create unacceptable audio loudness shifts, loss of dialog, or inappropriate dynamic range.
The Wohler device combines many of the features of the company's AMP2-E8MDA, 8-channel Dolby E Audio Monitor and Decoder & Converter with Discrete AES Outputs. It adds TCP/IP connection streaming metadata to a PC that provides extensive display of metadata, Dolby E guard band, video reference and linear time code (LTC) parameters, including comparisons of incoming Dolby E frame position to the video reference input.
