Day 3 of RadioWeek explored one of the biggest technological shifts in broadcast radio
TSL Products has expanded its MPA1-MIX family of monitor devices with a ST 2110 and AES67-compliant model.
The MPA1-MIX-NET was designed in collaboration with global production giants NEP, and is lined up for installation in its upcoming roster of ST 2110-compliant trucks and studio installations.
“Operator feedback for our MPA1-MIX MADI and Dante units has always been super positive,” says Joe Signorino, V.P. systems design and integration for NEP’s U.S. Broadcast Services Team. “The control layout is user-friendly with plenty of room to access individual controls, it can be operated without having to look directly at it and basic operations do not require button pushes or menu navigation. We just wanted the same functionality in an ST 2110 environment.”
The MPA1-MIX-NET is a 1U monitor unit provides 64 channels through a 1G AoIP connection, and a further 64 MADI channels with an optional MADI SFP to provide user access to a maximum of 128 inputs. The unit also has native support for NMOS IS-04 and IS-05.
With eight dedicated rotary controls to create a monitor mix of up to eight mono or stereo sources, operators can bank up to 16 independent mixes which can be recalled with a user-friendly “scroll to select” function. TSL says this makes it easy to create a variety of custom mixes.
The MPA1-MIX-NET also features comprehensive web and SNMP support. Its built-in web server and integrated Ethernet connection are designed to enable remote configuration and operation of networked units via a web browser, whilst SNMP integration enables a broadcast control system to automate configuration changes.
The introduction of the MPA1-MIX-NET extends TSL’s MPA1 range to six user-friendly MIX units and six SOLO variants for very simple audio monitoring.
