Uniquely Customizable and Scalable Monitoring Platform Enables Flexible, Convenient Remote Monitoring of Virtually Any Signal Type

SAN FRANCISCO -- Sept. 3, 2014 -- Wohler Technologies today announced that at IBC2014 the company will highlight its modular iON(TM) monitoring platform, which enables broadcasters to perform signal monitoring of baseband and stream-based signals anytime, in any way, from anywhere. Empowering users to access, view, control, and manage a virtually unlimited range of signals and associated data remotely from any Web-enabled PC, Mac(R), smartphone, or tablet device, with video and audio content streamed in real time, the highly customizable platform offers unprecedented scalability. 

"As a future-proof solution with a customizable interface that accommodates ongoing advances in media technology, iON bridges the gap between dedicated hardware for baseband monitoring and the new monitoring models of today and tomorrow," said Craig Newbury, vice president sales at Wohler. "While current monitoring solutions are limited to one box, one location, and one person, iON lets users move into a world in which they can work with any input in a range of applications while deploying an intuitive monitoring user interface on multiple devices used anywhere."

Supporting a growing range of monitoring interfaces, including baseband, ASI, IP, and RF, the iON platform addresses the demands of past, present, and future signal monitoring models and formats. The modular platform evolves alongside users' business and engineering needs, enabling practical, highly efficient monitoring of both baseband and stream-based signals and presenting monitored content in a browser for convenient review anywhere and anytime.

Built on a base chassis capable of high bitrate processing, iON can handle large numbers of channels within a very small 1-RU footprint. Designed from the start to be remotely operated, the platform brings video, data, and up to 64 audio channels onto smartphones, tablets, and laptops via a device-independent Web-based GUI. Thus, rather than rely on monitors scattered throughout a plant, engineers can leverage this powerful platform to view and hear any stream at any point from anywhere within their facilities.

Because engineers no longer need to be inside an equipment room to have a good understanding of what is going on with the broadcast network, it becomes possible for them to centralize global network operations and reduce their operating expenditures. Multiple iON chassis can be located globally yet form a single monitoring system. By monitoring the alarm output, either with the iON GUI or taking XML alarms out into a third-party NMS, users can address alarms by streaming a live proxy of the broadcast signal and examining the real-time impact of any issues on broadcast content.
