TSL Professional Products
TSL Professional Products Group manufactures a range of superior products which meet the needs of today's broadcasters. Its range of award-winning audio monitoring, tally signalling and power management units can be found in many facilities worldwide. Products featuring at Broadcast Asia include:
TSL will introduce a new family member to the PAM2 (Precision AudioMonitor) range that adds external screen monitoring capability plus a host of new features including Aux Input Mixer which allows users to mix an auxiliary audio feed such as an Intercom signal into their monitoring output - ideal for use in any environment where headphones are worn during production. Also available is a Split Mono Scroll Mode and a new monitoring setup, which enables operators to access monitoring functions such as Downmix, DRC, LtRt, phase swap and mono mix without the need to access any secondary menus. The new update (excluding the external screen output) is free to new and existing PAM2-3G16 owners.
Also making its Broadcast Asia debut is the PAM1-3G16. The natural evolution of the PAM1-3G8, this new addition to the PAM product family combines the size and convenience of the original 1RU multichannel audio monitoring unit with a full 16 bargraph display and many of the advanced features of the multi-award winning PAM2-3G16, such as Loudness Measurement, Preset Standard Switching and advance monitoring mode selection.
Recognising the power demands of leading edge server products TSL has introduced 32A versions of its popular intelligent power distribution units. Similar in every aspect to other members of the family in terms of alarm and monitoring functions, the units can be deployed where higher power is required.
TSL's Intelligent Power Distribution units are deployed in broadcast facilities world-wide providing alarm monitoring and system control functions. The units can be used with any established monitoring software; however TSL has launched "PsiMon", an SQL server-based system with a unique dashboard display that takes full advantage of the PDU's many features. Following customer requests we have added a new "Blast"function that implements pre-configured power maps with a single button press. With many applications, a likely one will be to manage energy consumption during out-of-hours working when the facility is not operational.
TSL's latest addition to its renowned Tally family of products, the TMC-1, is designed for the most demanding applications in complex broadcasting environments where up time must be guaranteed. The unit features all solid state memory, twin Ethernet connectivity, twin hot swappable power supplies, SNMP capability and three user configurable PCI slots.
Based on the established industry favourite, the TM2, the new TM2-PLUS is aimed at meeting the needs of large OB trucks and other demanding applications that require the security of twin PSUs and built in relay outputs.
