PC-Based Interface Enables Quick Configuration of Channel Naming and Preset Assignments
SAN FRANCISCO — Nov. 15, 2011 — Wohler Technologies today announced a new software interface for the  company's MADI-8 in-rack audio monitor that allows for control and quick reconfiguration of channel presets  from any PC. With the new software, operators now have the ability to  name any or all of the 64 available channels and then assign them up to  eight available presets. Configurations can be saved as files on the set-up application, so operators can instantly  recall channel names and presets from previous events and assign them to  other MADI-8 units.
"MADI-8  was the world's first in-rack MADI monitor to offer simultaneous  monitoring of up to eight channels," said Jeff McNall, product manager  at Wohler. "Now, with this new channel-naming and preset configuration application, the unit provides even more  convenience in high-volume monitoring applications."
Giving  users the option of creating presets via a PC and keyboard rather than  on the MADI-8 unit itself, the firmware upgrade and software application  download significantly reduces the time required to configure a MADI-8. For installations with numerous  MADI-8 units, using a simple device server adaptor for each of the  serial ports can enable all of the MADI-8 units to be controlled via an  Ethernet network. This capability allows users to switch MADI-8 units between sport- or event-specific presets over the  network, taking very little time to shift channel names and presets  from one broadcast to the next.
"We  designed the MADI-8 to be a flexible, powerful, and easy-to-use  solution for cost-effective audio confidence monitoring, and this new  software interface makes the unit an even better match for demanding broadcast and production environments," added  McNall. "Wohler is evolving to incorporate the use of Ethernet networks  in configuration of our products. We've done it on our AMP2-16V-3G  monitor, as well, and we continue to look for additional ways that our customers can take advantage of having Wohler  products networked."
The  new software application and firmware upgrade are free to existing  MADI-8 users. More information about the MADI-8 and access to updates is  available at www.wohler.com
