Telestream recently unveiled the latest version of software for the PRISM family of waveform monitors. The new software adds significant audio support to an already broad range of IP and SDI audio tools.
Designed to be used in video engineering, operations, live acquisition and event production and post production, PRISM now supports 4K and 8K compliant 32-channel audio monitoring. For IP systems standardising on ST-2110 or SDI workflows looking to expand into UHD, the new capabilities can be easily added to any PRISM model with no hardware modifications. A simple software license key is all that is required. Unlike competing products, PRISM is a unique software-defined monitoring instrument which can be easily updated and advanced via software.
New PRISM feature highlights include comprehensive audio support for IP environments including 2110-30 and 2110-31 with support for compressed Dolby audio. Also, it features local headphone and speaker output via IP-to-SDI conversion with 5.1/7.1 downmix; as well as Dolby D/D+ and Dolby E decode with Dolby status support and an integrated RTW surround display.
This software upgrade enables support for international loudness standards for worldwide regulatory compliance It has adjustable loudness monitoring threshold alarms/alerts and simultaneous metering and Lissajous display.
“We’ve been a leading provider for the largest ST-2110 deployments and have worked closely with industry experts to meet expectations for multichannel audio monitoring and regulatory compliance. We are proud that customers view our relationship as one where their success and the success of PRISM’s audio monitoring tools are so closely aligned. Thanks to these partnerships, our capabilities are wide-ranging and both 4K and 8K compliant,” said Charlie Dunn, SVP of Tek Video Business Unit at Telestream.
