TSL is showcasing its new MPA1-MIX-NET-V-R for the first time at IBC2023. The monitoring solution is a fully redundant 1U audio confidence monitor and mixer with 16 instantly recallable independent mixes that eases the transition to IP. TSL engineered the MPA1-MIX-NET-V-R per the SMPTE ST 2022-7 industry standard, ensuring fully optimized network topologies that reduce customer risk and network complexity without limiting operational agility.
TSL says the MPA1-MIX-NET innovation safeguards against disruptions and system failures, empowering broadcasters to deliver top-tier, uninterrupted broadcasting experiences whether it’s a high-stakes sporting event, live concert, or once-in-a-lifetime global event.
“It is increasingly clear that IP is the future, and to get there, we have to build products that provide a bridge to the new IP paradigm with familiar workflows and monitoring tools, but which will also be completely at home in an all-IP world,” states Ian Godfrey, president of TSL Inc. “Combined with TSL’s cutting-edge redundancy capabilities, customers can meet specific challenges head-on cost-effectively. It’s a customer-centric approach that caters to unique scenarios by providing an unmatched IP solution that ensures continuous audio monitoring with absolute peace of mind.”
About the new MPA1-MIX-Net-V-R
TSL says it designed the MPA1-MIX-NET-V-R to ease the transition towards IP media transport and is ideal for ST 2110 trucks and installations. Two 1G AoIP connections provide 64 input channels, with a further 64 available via an optional MADI SFP. Support for in-band NMOS is built-in for integration with TSL control and leading third-party systems.
User interfaces are critical in high-pressure production environments, so the MPA1-MIX-NET’s design is informed by users like global production experts NEP. One example is the “V”-shaped layout of the controls for accurate fingertip navigation in low-light environments. Additionally, SNMP integration allows remote configuration changes.
Key features and the MPA1-MIX-NET-V-R include the following:
- 64 channels and an optional MADI input, providing a further 64 channels with an intuitive interface and easy-to-use controls.
- A simple and intuitive way to monitor multiple audio sources by using its eight dedicated rotary controls to configure and create the required monitoring mix quickly.
- It provides full integration with modern Broadcast IP networks, allowing operators to access any audio sources for monitoring easily.
- It has a comprehensive webpage and SNMP support, allowing remote configuration and control.
