iAM-MVAM Multifunction Confidence Monitor
Wohler's new iAM-MVAM multifunction confidence monitor is available with either four 4.3-inch displays or two 7-inch displays. Unique in that it can handle inputs from multirate SDI, ASI, and IP interfaces, the iAM-MVAM monitor is an ideal solution for cost-effective, real-time MPEG TS, SDI, and HDMI monitoring. Offering unprecedented flexibility in handling diverse inputs, the iAM-MVAM enables operators to monitor incoming signals, internal transport signals, and outbound distribution signals with one easy-to-use system.
Free from codec limitations, iAM-MVAM offers robust capabilities without the costly upgrades typically associated with MPEG monitoring equipment. The iAM-MVAM decodes and monitors MPEG transport streams carrying MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264 encoded video, along with all associated data tables, for complete confidence. With this remarkable capability, the iAM-MVAM opens the door to monitoring in environments in which monitoring has previously been impractical or cost-prohibitive.
