TSL Expands SAM-Q Audio Monitor Capabilities with SAM-Q-NET and SAM-Q-EDIT Tools
TSL expanded its SAM-Q Audio Monitor offerings with the new SAM-Q-NET and SAM-Q-EDIT
The SAM-Q audio monitor from TSL is unique in its ability to allow users to tailor their operation to different environments. Supporting several operational modes (which can be enabled and disabled as required), the SAM-Q is equally at home in operational positions in studio facilities, OB trucks, master control positions and playout facilities. With the range of modes available, it can be configured to meet the usage requirements and skill level of its location before menu access is locked down to ensure that the configuration isn’t unintentionally changed.
TSL equipped SAM-Q-NET with both in-band and out-of-band control options, including NMOS support and a TSL RESTful API, with more planned for the future. By maximizing the number of control systems that the unit can be integrated with, TSL says it is providing users choice and flexibility when it comes to planning their installation, allowing them to choose the right equipment for the task in hand.
TSL’s new SAM-Q-EDIT is an offline editing tool that allows systems designers and engineers to build configurations, apply modes, map sources and loudness probes, enter source names and control front panel interface settings while on the move. It streamlines operations as configurations are ready to load upon arrival at an event, reducing setup time and removing the need to build configurations through the front panel menus. Also, with a visual display of all unit parameters, users can easily view and edit configuration files created on a SAM-Q audio monitor, as well as view a readout of SAM-Q unit information for imported files.
