What’s New?
In the latest software release, we added support for the 16-channel AVB
listener card. Chapter 6, table 6-7 has ordering information for the
option kit to add this card to your AMP2-16V.
In the previous software release, we added a new Loudness
Measurement Screen, as well as a new Loudness Measurement
Menu and hot key to support the new functions. The new capabilities
add no cost to the product and they are available for download as a
software upgrade to existing AMP2-16V Series monitors from the
Wohler web site www.Wohler.com.
Dedicated Enhanced Loudness Screen
The new Loudness Screen offers either manual Start/Stop
monitoring or Continuous monitoring according to ITU BS.1770-3 or
EBU R128 standards. This screen is accessible from the Main Screen
with a simple press of the new Loudness hot key.
The new Loudness Screen accurately displays additional loudness
data:
• Maximum True Peak loudness of the program
• Maximum loudness of the program
• Program Average loudness
• LRA (Loudness RAnge)
• Loudness measured within the loudness window, including Over
and/or Under visual alarms
• Reference Level
• Graphical Displays of both Loudness measured within the
loudness window and the levels of the individual channels
contributing to the loudness measurement

• Speakers: Two Class D amplifiers drive two (left/right) full range
speakers.
• Headphone Jack: 1/4” stereo jack for optional headphones.
• Balance and Volume Knobs: The top knob controls the Volume.
Pressing this control sequences through a 20 dB speaker dip, mute,
and then back to the current volume. The bottom knob adjusts the
Balance between the speakers. Pressing the knob returns the audio
balance to center. Rotating either knob displays the change
graphically in the screen header when the Main Screen is
displayed. The Balance knob can be changed to a Volume knob
for the SuperPair. Refer to How Do I Set Up a SuperPair Volume
Control? on page 48.
• Navigation Buttons: The three buttons below the right screen
typically provide Help (left), Save/Exit (center), and Cancel
(right) functions for the configuration menus. Some menus will
have other functions for these buttons, but they are always clearly
labeled at the bottom of the screen.
• Left Screen: You can configure this screen to display video, meters,
or metadata.
• Right Screen: You can configure this screen to display meters,
metadata, or the configuration menus and context-sensitive help.

To select the inputs that will source each of the displayed and
monitored pairs, rotate the Mixer Channel Select knob to the
channel pair and then use the Source Pair Select to pick a
channel pair from the available inputs.
4.
Then use the Channel Function to assign a function such as Left
Front, Center, Left Surround, or whatever function you want
this channel to have. This assignment affects how this signal is
treated in other parts of the AMP2-16V, and is essential for correct
monitoring operation, especially in terms of the speaker mix,the
loudness measurement, and external surround positioning.

After you have completed this process for all the channels you want to
monitor, you are ready to move on to the Cluster Configuration
Menu.
II. Create Channel Clusters
In the Cluster Configuration Screen, you will group, or cluster the
channels together which you consider to be related. For example, if you
have set up a discrete 5.1 set of channels (L Front, R Front, Center,
LFE, L Sur, and R Sur), then you will want to cluster them together.

Important Safety Instructions
WARNING:
IMPORTANT:
821116:
18
Do not use this equipment near water, rain or moisture.
1.
Read, keep, and follow all of these instructions; heed all warnings.
Use only a dry cloth to clean the equipment.
2.
Do not block any ventilation openings. Install only in accordance
with the instructions in the section entitled, Installation
Recommendations on page 19.
3.
Do not install near any heat source such as a radiator, heat register,
amplifier, or stove.
4.
Do not attempt to plug the unit into a two-blade outlet (with only
two prongs of equal width).
By design, these monitors will only plug into a three-prong outlet for
your safety. If the plug does not fit into your outlet, contact an
electrician to replace the obsolete outlet.
5.
Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched,
particularly at plug’s source on the equipment and at the socket.
6.
Use only the attachments/accessories specified by the
manufacturer.
7.
Unplug the equipment during lightning storms or when unused
for long periods of time.
8.
Use of a cart is neither recommended nor approved by Wohler.
9.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing will be
required under all of the following conditions:
•
The equipment has been damaged in any way, such as when
the power-supply cord or plug is damaged.
•
Objects have fallen onto the equipment; or the equipment has
been exposed to rain or moisture, or liquid has been spilled
onto the equipment.
•
The equipment does not operate normally.
•
The equipment has been dropped.

Safety Symbols
WARNING:
The symbol to the left warns of electric shock hazard inside the unit.
Disconnect the power cord before removing access panels when
installing upgrades. Only qualified service personnel are to operate the
equipment with covers removed, and are to exercise caution to avoid
personal injury.
Installation Recommendations
Mounting
The unit is designed to install into a standard 19" rack mounted at ear
level for best high frequency response and visual observation of the
monitor screen. Please adhere to the following clearances:
Clearance
Surface
24”
3”
2”
1.75”
0”
Front
Rear
Sides
Top and Bottom (if either radiates heat)
Top and Bottom (if no heat)
Heat Dissipation
The ambient temperature inside the mounting enclosure should not
exceed 40° Celsius (104° Fahrenheit). Adjacent devices can be rack
mounted (or stacked) in proximity to the unit if this temperature is not
exceeded. Otherwise, allow a 1RU (1.75”/44.45mm) space above and
below the unit for air circulation.
Important:
To reduce noise, the monitor does not have any fans. As a result, the
heat generated by the class D power amplifiers, power supplies, and
other components is vented by slots in the side of the unit. Therefore,
as a safety precaution, you must allow proper ventilation on both sides
of the unit.

Ch a p te r 2 I n s ta l l at i on
I ns ta l l a ti o n Re co m m en d a ti on s
Sympathetic Vibration
Sympathetic vibration from other equipment (cables, etc.,) in the rack
may be serious enough to interfere with the unit’s sound quality. The
use of thin card stock and/or felt or foam weather-stripping type
materials between adjacent vibrating surfaces, or tying up loose cables,
etc., may be required to stop vibrations external to the unit.
Mechanical Bracing
Even though the 2U models are fairly heavy, the chassis is securely
attached to the front panel. In addition, the chassis has mounting tabs
through which you attach it to the rack rail. This feature will reduce or
eliminate rear bracing requirements in many mobile/portable
applications. The weight of internal components is distributed fairly
evenly around the unit.
Connections and Cable Recommendations
We recommend that you limit the length of the cables that you use for
feeding HD-SDI signals sources to the HD-SDI inputs of the AMPx-E8
Series units and that you use a Belden 1694A cable (or equivalent). The
HD-SDI inputs (In 1 and In 2) can be up to 150 meters (492 feet) in
length when used with HD signals and 75 meters (246 feet) in length
when using 3G signals.
Note:
The connections of all DB-25 connectors are compatible with
Tascam DB-25 to XLR cable assemblies. Consult the factory
for availability. All rear panel connectors are female.
Electrical Interference
Be careful to apply proper input termination settings and avoid
mismatched cable types and other similar causes of undesired
reflections in digital signal systems. If severe enough, such reflections
can result in corruption of the digital data stream. As with any audio
equipment, maximum immunity from electrical interference requires
the use of shielded cable. The internal circuitry ground is connected to
the chassis.

Co m p l ia n ce
Power
The unit comes with one 100 - 240 VAC +/- 10%, 150W, 50/60Hz
power supply module. A second identical module is an optional
accessory for use when redundancy is necessary. These modules plug
in to the back panel and are secured with thumbscrews. The power to
each supply connects an A/C mains power source through the IEC
connector provided on the back panel of each power supply.
When the mains plug or appliance coupler is used as the disconnect
device, the disconnect device should remain operable.
Compliance
FCC
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for
a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These

How Do I Synchronize External Surround Sound
Audio with Video?
Audio from the 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs can be delayed so that all of its
destinations, including outputs will receive the delay. The SDI input
channels can be delayed up to 160 ms, adjustable in 1 ms increments.
Note that if you are using both the SDI input delay and the monitor
mixer delay, the effect to the internal speakers is additive for a total of
up to 330 ms.
Note:
The Audio Delay you set also applies to the AES outputs on
the 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O card and to the re-embedded
output if this option is selected and the same AES channels
are re-embedded.
SDI input Audio Delay is enabled and adjusted in the 3G SDI I/O
Card Configuration Menu. Before proceeding to this menu, adjust
the Main Screen controls so that you are viewing the video and
hearing the associated audio on your surround sound system. Then

How Do I Monitor Dolby Bitstreams?
Only one bitstream may be decoded at any given time, but that
bitstream may produce up to 10 channels of audio. All 10 resultant
channels can be monitored at the same time if desired. Cluster Select
hot keys associated with those bitstreams will automatically change
into Dolby Zoom hot keys. Then you will be able to press these Dolby
Zoom hot keys to listen to the encoded audio and view the Dolby
metadata from that bitstream.
Note:
The AMP2-16V must contain the optional Dolby decoder
card in order to decode Dolby bitstreams.
To set up a Dolby Zoom hot key (that is not also a Cluster Select hot
key) use the Configure Hot Key menu:

How Do I Decode and Monitor a Single Dolby
Bitstream?
A single Dolby bitstream from the SDI or AES inputs may be monitored
continuously. The bitstream itself doesn't have to be displayed on the
Main Screen meters. You may also monitor the Dolby metadata
continuously.
Note:
The AMP2-16V must contain the optional Dolby decoder
card in order to decode a Dolby bitstream.
Setting up continuous Dolby bitstream monitoring is a two-step
process, first setting up the Decoder card and then setting up the
monitoring channels. The first step involves configuring the Dolby
decoder card:

As part of the Status Data screen, the AMP2-16V will display the line
position of each Dolby E bitstream contained in a 3G/HD/SD-SDI
signal, for guard band checking. This may be shown for any or all
Dolby E bitstreams simultaneously on the same screen. As with other
Status Data, Dolby E the line position can be shown in a color and size

F re qu e nt ly A s k ed Q u es ti o ns
How Do I Use Presets to Change Inputs?
The AMP2-16V can be outfitted with far more inputs than can be
monitored on a 16-channel screen. While it is possible to delve into the
various menus to reconfigure which channels are monitored each time
a change is needed, this would be a time-consuming task. Fortunately
the AMP2-16 has the ability to store 32 entire system configurations as
presets, including the inputs that are being monitored. These presets can
be instantly recalled from the Main Screen as needed.
For example, suppose you need to monitor an SDI stream sometimes,
but other times you need to monitor just some of those SDI channels
along with some AES or analog inputs. You could set up one
configuration to monitor purely the SDI stream channels, and another
to monitor the mix of channels you need. If there were other inputs you
sometimes need to monitor, you could set up system configurations for
each scenario, up to a total of 32 configurations.
Since a preset is a complete system configuration, first set up all of the
parameters to be part of the preset. Then use the Preset

How Do I Set Up a SuperPair to Monitor Intercom or
Other Sources?
A SuperPair is a 9th audio input pair that you can monitor along with
the normally monitored audio channels. It can be any input pair. This
special pair can be heard in the speakers or outputs, but is not metered
on the Main Screen. It is useful if you need to hear production
intercom audio (or any other audio) along with the monitored audio.
If you need a front panel volume control to adjust the SuperPair, please

will work independently of the main front panel Volume control. Like
the main Volume control, the SuperPair Volume control can be

If you have not done so already, you first need to set up a free mix in
the output card. Please refer to How Do I Mix Any Input(s) to Any
Output(s)? on page 50 and set up the needed output mix.
To show mixer output levels, certain configurations must be avoided so
that potential internal feedback loops will not exist within the digital
mixer. Output levels cannot be displayed if:

want to adjust (Figure 3–24 above). You may also configure the
optional Dolby decoder card.
2.
Depending upon the type of card, there will be more or fewer
options that can be adjusted.
How Do I Set the Clock Source?
All inputs to the AMP2-16V must be synchronized to the same clock.
By default, the system will automatically select a logical clock source,
such as the 3G/HD/SD-SDI card in the lowest numbered slot.
821116:

are different, this means the current source does not have a signal
applied.
Note:
Channels not locked to the current sync source will
mute automatically, or may periodically mute and
unmute if the sampling frequencies are closely related
but are drifting in and out of sync. You should choose a
source of sync that is stable, always present, and not
connected to an external switcher. A source of
composite black burst video connected to the genlock
input is the best choice.
In the unlikely event that only analog sources are
connected to the AMP2-16V, the Clock Source should
be set to Internal.
How Do I Terminate/Unterminate AES Inputs?
AES signals should have one and only one termination. This
termination should physically be at the last destination of an AES coax
cable. If the AMP2-16V is the last connection in a series of AES
connection, then its terminations should be turned on. By default, the
AES inputs of the AMP2-16V are all terminated.
A symptom of too many terminations (or no termination) is that no
signal appears to be present on the AES input.
The termination setup is done in the AES Input Configuration

Main Screen
The AMP2-16V includes two high resolution LCD screens. This makes
it easy to view video, metadata, and meters from a greater range of
positions. The content of each screen is fully configurable. (See Main
Screen Arrangements on page 64 for details.) Audio monitoring and
control functions center around the Main Screen. It contains metering
for up to 16 audio channels (8 channel pairs) and labeling for the hot
keys, which allow the operator to quickly control system behavior. The
usage of each channel is displayed as left, right, or bidirectional arrows
above each channel meter to indicate left, right, or center audio
monitoring. As a channel cluster is selected for listening, its arrow
indicators brighten. Refer to How Do I Select the Inputs I Want to Hear
in the Speakers? on page 28.
The header at the top of the screen shows Volume/Balance control
positions, Dim, Cut, presence of Dolby decoding, and various other
informative message to the operator. The footer at the bottom of the
screen indicates the calculated the Loudness as measured over the
selected Loudness Window on the selected audio channel cluster as
set up in the Loudness Measurement Menu. It also labels the function
of the three control buttons below the screen.

On the Hot Key Configuration Menu, you can assign the hot keys to
allow you to perform a variety of one-touch functions.
Simultaneous Multi-Format Monitoring
The AMP2-16V can monitor 16 channels of 3G/HD/SD-SDI, AES,
analog, or optical inputs in any combination on the same level meter
screen. It does not need to switch between different input port types to
display them simultaneously on the meters, or to monitor them
audibly. Using the 32 presets, you can monitor many different
arrangements of channels at the press of a button.
Monitoring Cluster Selection
Generally speaking, you probably won’t want to listen to more than
one audio program cluster at a time. So the Cluster Select hot keys
allow quick selection of the audio program you want to hear. The
system will automatically set up the Cluster Select hot keys when
you arrange the level meters into clusters. Refer to How Do I Cluster
Meters Pairs Together for Easy Readability? on page 29 for details.
Simply press the Cluster Select hot key corresponding to the meter
cluster you want to monitor. The selected cluster is indicated on the
meter screen by means of a highlighted cluster label and highlighted
channel indicators. The loudness for the selected cluster is also

calculated and displayed both numerically and graphically depending
on the settings in the Loudness Clusters Menu.
When the chosen Select Cluster hot key is rotated right or left,
individual channels or channel pairs within the cluster are then soloed
or muted. This can be very useful for troubleshooting audio problems
on channels.
Note that Cluster Select hot keys will automatically change to Dolby
Zoom hot keys when a Dolby bitstream is detected in the cluster. This
allows you to easily analyze the Dolby bitstream if needed.
When an optional AES or analog output card is used to connect the
AMP2-16V audio to an external surround sound system, selecting a
cluster automatically routes the appropriate channels to the correct
speakers according to their function as set in the Monitor Mixer
Configuration Menu.
Main Screen Arrangements
To accommodate your specific needs, you can select from six Main
Screen arrangements, including ones that allow you to quickly toggle
between video and metering or video and data screens. The screen
arrangement is chosen in the Main Screen Configuration Menu.
Refer to the III. Arrange the Main Screens on page 9 for more details.

Loudness Monitoring
Loudness can be measured on any cluster. When a Cluster Select hot
key is pressed to listen to a certain audio program, Loudness is
measured and displayed automatically for that program on the Main
Screen.

Internal Router and Mixer
The wide variety of input and output possibilities offered by the
AMP2-16V is a product of the flexible internal digital audio routing
system depicted in the diagram in Figure 4–9 on page 72.
As a factory default, the AMP2-16V will be configured to produce
audio in the self-contained speakers from the card in the monitor's
lowest numbered occupied slot (typically Slot 1). However, you can
configure the monitor to produce audio in the front speakers from any
available input sources. Refer to I. Configure the Monitor Mixer on
page 5 for details.
Note that you can set up multiple audio paths. For example, while
monitoring de-embedded SDI audio channels through the speakers,
you may independently decode Dolby channels from an AES stream,
convert them to analog, and output them. Setups like this can be stored
as presets and called up at will.
Any monitored input can be routed to any AES or analog output pairs.
These powerful features will allow de-embedded, Dolby decoded, or
other digital or analog audio to be used by other products. The audio
that is output doesn't necessarily need to be monitored by the meters or
speakers.

Input channels can be metered, rearranged, monitored, and output in
any order, or even mixed, panned, and trimmed. The resulting mixed
output channels may also be metered. Refer to the How do I Show
Mixer Output Levels on the Level Meters? on page 52 for details.
Because an optional redundant internal power supply is available,
power integrity is assured and the output of the internal mixer can be
used for live events and broadcast chain use. Refer to the How Do I Mix
Any Input(s) to Any Output(s)? on page 50 and How Do I Adjust Mixer
Levels from the Main Screen? on page 51 for more information.
Audio Processor Cards
While the AMP2-16V comes standard with a dual input 3G/HD/SDSDI card, it can be outfitted with up to five optional cards of various
types so that it can be customized for your particular installation.
• Dual Input 3G/HD/SD-SDI Card: This card has two selectable 3G/
HD/SD-SDI inputs, one reclocked or re-embedded 3G/HD/SD-SDI
output of the selected input, and eight de-embedded AES outputs
on two HD-15 connectors from the selected input. The deembedded AES output signals can be delayed 3 to 160 ms in 1 ms
increments. If these delayed AES signals are then re-embedded, the
delay also applies then to audio in the re-embedded 3G/HD/SDSDI output. Up to three of these cards can be installed in an AMP216V. The video from the selected input can be displayed on the left
screen of the front panel.
• AES Input Card: This card provides BNC inputs for eight AES
channel pairs. These inputs can be metered, monitored, or output to
optional output cards, according to preset and menu settings.
• AES Output Card: This card provides BNC outputs for eight AES
channel pairs. These outputs can be derived from other inputs,
decoded Dolby channels, or the flexible internal audio mixer,
according to preset and menu settings.
• AVB Listener Card: This card provides a 100 Mbit/s AVB Ethernet
interface specifically for AVB audio. When you connect this card to
your AVB network, you can listen to two streams of up to eight
channels each, for a total of 16 channels. You must use your AVB
1722.1 network controller to connect one or two talkers to the AVB

card. If two talkers are connected, they must share a common
sample clock.
• Analog I/O and SPDIF (TOSLINK) Card: This card provides four
channel pairs of balanced analog inputs and four channel pairs of
balanced analog outputs on two DB-25 connectors. It also provides
an optical input for another channel pair. The outputs can be
derived from other inputs, decoded Dolby channels, or the flexible
internal audio mixer, according to preset and menu settings.
Refer to Chapter 6: Input/Output Modules and Options on page 137
for a complete description and pin-out of each of the preceding cards.
Genlock Input
To ensure the best performance, the AMP2-16V includes a Genlock
input to keep all of the inputs synchronized. Note that if the Genlock
input is not used, by default the AMP2-16V will automatically locate a
clock source from the input cards starting with the lowest-numbered
card slot.
This unit requires all inputs that are being mixed or monitored to be
synchronous (i.e., have the same sample rate based on a common
clock). Inputs that are not synchronous with the selected clock source
will be automatically muted. Refer to the How Do I Set the Clock
Source? on page 54 for details.
Audio Monitoring Delay
Add monitored audio delay to the internal speakers in 1 ms increments
up to 170 ms to provide lip sync. The effect of the delay can be audibly
monitored continuously as it is changed. Refer to How Do I
Synchronize Internal Speaker Audio with an External Video Source? on
page 35 for details.

SDI Input Audio Monitoring Delay
Add audio delay to the SDI input signals in 1 ms increments up to 160
ms to provide lip sync. You can then output these delayed signals as
needed through the de-embedded AES output ports or the optional
AES and analog output ports. The effect of the delay can be audibly
monitored continuously as it is changed. Refer to How Do I
Synchronize External Surround Sound Audio with Video? on page 36
for details.
When using this delay in conjunction with the audio monitoring delay,
you can create a total delay of up to 330 ms before routing the audio to
the internal speakers. When multiple SDI input cards are installed in an
AMP2-16V, the SDI input delay of each card is separately adjustable.
SDI Output Re-Embedding
The 3G SDI I/O cards can be used to re-embed the selected SDI source.
Audio from other AMP2-16V inputs that are clocked by a 48kHz clock
locked to the SDI input can be re-embedded into the reclocked 3G SDI
I/O Output stream. This means that audio channels within the SDI
stream can be rearranged and/or delayed, or even replaced by audio
from other 3G SDI cards, or from other inputs. Refer to 3G SDI I/O
Configuration Menu on page 86 for more information.
Toslink (SPDIF) Optical Input
One or more optical channel pair inputs are now available as part of
optional Analog I/O Cards. This would typically be used for auxiliary
monitoring purposes. This optical input is equipped with a sample rate
converter so that its clocking may be independent from the clocking of
all of the other inputs.Refer to the How Do I Select the Inputs I Want to
Hear in the Speakers? on page 28 for details.

Dolby E Line Position Display
As part of the Status Data Screen, the AMP2-16V will display the
line position of each Dolby E bitstream contained in a 3G/HD/SD-SDI
signal, relative to the guard band. This may be shown for any or all
Dolby E bitstreams simultaneously on the same screen. As with other
status data, Dolby E the line position can be shown in a color and size
that is appropriate to its importance to you.
The Guard Band in an SDI signal is an interval in which video edits and
switching can occur without disrupting the signal. The Line Position
is the number of video lines from the start of the video raster (line 0) to
the start of the Dolby E data burst.
Dolby CRC Error Counter Display
The AMP2-16V can flag and count Dolby errors as they occur. This
important information is shown on the Main Screen of the AMP216V. Error counts may be allowed to accumulate or may be reset as
desired.
A CRC Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check Error) is a momentary flaw in
the Dolby bitstream. There can be a variety of reasons that this could
occur, including errors in transmission or a momentary interruption of
the bitstream. The occasional CRC error may be nothing to worry
about, but multiple errors are an indication of a signal problem, and
this display will allow you to make that judgment.
Dolby Zoom Screen
I m po r ta nt :
The Dolby Zoom Screen is only available when the Dolby D/E/
DD+ Card is installed.
Dolby Zoom is a very powerful analysis tool. With the addition of the
Dolby D/E/Dolby Digital Plus Option Card, you can quickly “zoom
in” on your choice of encoded Dolby streams to listen to and meter the
contained audio channels. The Dolby Zoom Screen is shown in
Figure 4–10 on page 79. In this screen, you may solo or mute the

individual channels for troubleshooting purposes. The Dolby Zoom
Screen also lets you scroll through multiple lines of metadata, that
appear on the screen adjacent to the metered channels. Then, with the
press of a button, you can quickly return to your normal monitoring
screen.
Cluster Select hot keys will automatically change to Dolby Zoom
hot keys when a Dolby bitstream is detected in the cluster.
Alternatively, you may set up permanent Dolby Zoom hot keys. For
details on how to monitor a Dolby bitstream all the time without using
Dolby Zoom, refer to the How Do I Decode and Monitor a Single
Dolby Bitstream? on page 39 for details. Refer to the How Do I Monitor
Dolby Bitstreams? on page 38 for details on how to set up a Dolby
Zoom hot key that is not combined with a Cluster Select hot key.
A Dolby bitstream may also be decoded and output through an
optional AES Output Card or an Analog I/O Card completely
independently of other monitoring. Refer to the How Do I Mix Any
Input(s) to Any Output(s)? on page 50 for details.
The Dolby Zoom feature allows you to view the Dolby metadata and
the level meters simultaneously while also monitoring the Dolby audio
pairs in the front panel speakers.
If a cluster contains a Dolby bitstream, then the Select Cluster hot key
associated with it (if there is one) will automatically change to a Dolby
Zoom. If the bitstream should disappear or change to PCM, then the
hot key will change back to a Cluster Select.
Note:
This automatic operation is subject to the following
restrictions:
1.
This feature only applies to the AMP2-E16V (e.g., the
monitor must contain a Dolby decoder).
2.
You have selected Dolby Zoom as the Dolby decoder
source in the Dolby Configuration Menu.
3.
You selected Auto for the Decode type in the Dolby
Configuration Menu.
To display the Dolby Zoom screen from the Main Screen, press a
Dolby Zoom hot key. For detailed instructions for creating a Dolby
Zoom hot key, refer to How Do I Monitor Dolby Bitstreams? on page
38.

Refer to the How Do I Set Up a SuperPair to Monitor Intercom or Other
Sources? on page 47 for details.
Standard and Custom Meter Scales
The AMP2-16V Series monitors are capable of displaying 16 high
resolution, 310-segment bar graph level meters with a variety of
selectable scales and phase indicators simultaneously with a loudness
indication. The available options include AES, VU, Ext VU, BBC, EBU,
Nordic, DIN, and Custom.
A variety of adjustments are available, depending upon the meter scale
you select. The widest variety is available on the Custom scale. This
scale allows you to adjust the ballistics, the reference level, segment
division points and colors, upper and lower limits, and the amount of
scale compression on the lower part of the scale. Refer to the How Do I
View the Loudness Screen? on page 30 for details.
You can set the signals to be monitored by the level meters and internal
speakers in the Monitor Mixer Configuration Menu,. These signals can
be de-embedded SDI audio, AES audio, decoded Dolby, a mix of any
inputs or outputs, or a combination depending on the optional I/O
modules installed in the unit.
Phase Monitoring
Not only can the phase relationship of any pair be monitored, but the
phase between any arbitrary non-adjacent channels or pairs can also be
monitored. Phase monitoring between adjacent pairs is controlled in
the Monitor Mixer Configuration Menu. Arbitrary phase monitoring
between any non-adjacent channels can also be set up in the Arbitrary

3G SDI I/O Configuration Menu
This menu allows you to configure the audio from the 3G SDI I/O
Card. Note that the bulk of the functionality of this menu is identical to
those of the AES/Analog Output Configuration Menus, so this
section will only discuss those functions that are unique to this menu.
For details on the Mixer Channel Select, Channel Trim, Mix Input
Select, Pan, and Output Assign functions, refer to Free Mix Mode
Controls on page 93.

• SDI Audio Delay: Pressing this knob turns the SDI input delay On
or Off. Rotating this knob selects the amount do delay. The SDI
audio delay may be set to either Off or from 3 ms to 160 ms in 1
ms increments. The system will save the set delay value even when
the system is turned off.

Note:
The SDI Audio Delay you set also applies to the AES
outputs on the 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O card and these AES
signals when used in the re-embedded output.
• Re-Embed: Pressing this encoder toggles between Pass Thru and
Select.
•
Pass Thru will cause the 3G SDI card to pass its input
channels directly through to its reclocked output without any
changes and without any SDI Audio Delay.
•
Select will let you select any input card sources, and any
Dolby decoder sources (if equipped) to be re-embedded in the
reclocked output. De-embedded pairs that are used as Input
Mix Select sources will be delayed by the SDI Audio
Delay. This may be useful when synchronizing an external
video monitor with the audio signals.
I m po r ta nt :
Each selected source must be clocked by a 48kHz clock that is locked to
the SDI input signal.
I m po r ta nt :
A Dolby bitstream should be treated with special care. No attempt
should be made to adjust the Channel Trim or Pan controls.
Likewise, it should not be mixed with any other signal. But it can be
routed to any channel pair.
The configuration set in Re-Embed: Select mode is remembered
when you select Re-Embed: Pass Thru mode. When you select
Re-Embed: Pass Thru mode, the control labels that cannot be
adjusted are disabled and turn gray as shown in 5–3 on page 88.

• When one or more 3G SDI I/O cards are installed, this menu is
accessible. This menu allows the customer to select the SDI Audio
Delay.
821116:

•
The SDI Audio Delay will be applied to all 16 de-embedded
channels of the 3G/HD/SD-SDI input and therefore will
affect all outputs of these de-embedded audio signals,
including the output to a surround sound system.
•
The AES de-embedded outputs are delayed by the SDI audio
delay. When Re-Embed: Pass Thru is selected, the
reclocked outputs are not delayed by the SDI audio delay.
•
The SDI audio delay may be set to either OFF or from 3ms to
160 ms in 1 ms increments.
•
The actual audio delay changes will occur dynamically as the
knob is turned so that the audio delay may be audibly and
visually matched to the video monitor, without actually
knowing beforehand what the exact delay must be.
•
The audio delay will be saved in the presets, allowing
different presets to exhibit different SDI audio delays as
necessary. This can allow one touch control from the Main
Screen.
•
Additional 3G/HD/SD-SDI cards added to the AMP2-16V
will have their own separately adjustable delay.
•
The adjustable delay for the internal monitor speakers, as set
in the Monitor Mixer Configuration Menu, if used, will be in
addition to the SDI Audio Delay.

• The same channel selection that is audible on the speakers (Follow
Monitor mode), or
• Any other selection (Free Mix mode).
Follow Monitor/Free Mix: Pressing this knob toggles between the

Free Mix Mode Controls
In Free Mix mode you can mix and output any combination of channel
pairs into any combination of output channels, or you can turn the
output pair Off altogether. Adding a Dolby D/E Card adds the five
decoded Dolby output pairs, so you can select one of many inputs (up
to four other processor cards at eight channel pairs each, plus five
Dolby output pairs). You will see the choices displayed as Slot x

Adding an Auto Mode Hot Key
By setting up an Auto Mode hot key, you can quickly and easily turn
the Automation Menu on or off. Refer to the Hot Key Configuration
Menu 1 Through 8 section of this chapter to do this.
When one of the knobs is assigned as an Auto Mode hot key, the
background color of the knob label will be gold if Auto Mode is on and
gray if Auto Mode is off. Since it works in parallel with the Auto
Mode on/off control in the Automation Menu, each one will be
affected by toggling the other one. It determines whether the
Condition/Response settings in the Automation Menu (if any) will be
active or not.
Note:
This hot key has no settings: simply setting it as an
Automation Menu (on/off) hot key is enough. Moreover,
it is normally not necessary to set up more than one
Automation Menu hot key.

include:
• Selecting the source of the Dolby bitstream
• Commands are provided to control the action of the Dolby decoder

• Decoder Source: Rotating this knob selects the Dolby bitstream
source to be decoded
•
Any AES pair,
•
Any de-embedded AES pair from an SDI input,
•
Any TOSLINK/SPDIF input
When you select any one of these sources, the Dolby D/E/DD+
Card is locked to that source and cannot be used on other sources.
However, you can select the Dolby Zoom Select source instead.
This frees the Dolby decoder card to be used by any Dolby Zoom
hot key. The system will dynamically assign it to any source that
must be decoded, depending on which Dolby Zoom hot key you
press.
• Pro-16 Mode Channel: In the early days of Dolby, Pro-16 Mode
allowed you to encode two different programs simultaneously, one
Dolby D bitstream on the AES left channel, and one on the right
channel. This mode has largely fallen out of use; but the AMP2-16V
is still capable of monitoring it, should the need arise.
The Pro-16 Mode channel control simply selects one of the two AES
channels to decode. More recently, however, the incoming stream
will be Dolby Digital 32-bit where both channels are used for one
stream and the Pro-16 Mode channel parameter is ignored.
• Dolby E Program: A Dolby E bitstream can contain up to eight
separate audio programs with metadata. This control selects the
program to monitor, both audio and metadata. It also selects the

program that appears on the AUX (pair 5) output of the Dolby
decoder. Rotating this control shows you which programs are
contained in the bitstream. If you select a program that does not
exist, it defaults to Program 1. Usually, however, the stream
contains only one or two programs, so the setting should be either
Program 1 or Program 2.
• CRC Error Reporting: A CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) error is
a momentary flaw in the Dolby bitstream. This can occur for a
variety of reasons, including transmission errors or a brief
interruption of the bitstream. If this happens, the Dolby decoder
will mute the audio for a very short period (perhaps 32 ms) and
then will continue normally.
The occasional CRC error may be nothing to worry about, but
multiple errors indicate of a signal problem. CRC errors are flagged
and counted on the Main Screen of the AMP2-16V. When a CRC
error is detected, a red flag appears at the top of the screen as shown
in Figure 5–14 below.

channels are combined. The resulting signal can be used to
play a representation of the surround sound signal in stereo
headphones or stereo speakers. You can also downmix this
signal again to mono.
•
LtRt Downmix: This is a downmix of the selected surround
program that sums the surround channels and adds them
with a +90° phase shift to the left channel and a -90° phase
shift to the right channel. A Dolby Surround Pro Logic
decoder can then be used on this signal to reconstruct the
surround channel. However, while the result of this downmix
can be used, it will not produce a mono mix of the surround
program because the phase-shifted channels will cancel.
•
Mono Downmix: The selected surround program is
downmixed to mono.
•
Mute:
The AUX output is muted.
The AUX output of the Dolby D/E/DD+ card is available for
monitoring in the Monitor Mixer Configuration Menu, along
with the other four output channels.
• DRC Mode: Either rotating or pressing this knob selects the DRC
(Dynamic Range Compression) Mode. The available options
include: Bypass, RF, Line, or Dialnorm.
•
None: This selection removes the compression for the main
decoded channel outputs, but provides a line compression
profile for the AUX output. This provides the least amount of
compression, which allows audible monitoring in as close a

representation to the actual program as possible. The
characteristics of line compression are:
·
Boost compression scaling for low-level signals is
performed.
·
Cut compression scaling for high-level signals is
performed.
The term line is derived from the use of this profile with line
outputs of set-top decoders and other A/V equipment.
•
Dialnorm Only: This selection sets the Dolby decoder to
operate in exactly the same way as in the None setting, except
that on Dolby E bitstreams, the Dialnorm is adjusted to
reproduce at the level indicated by the Dialnorm metadata
value.
•
Line Mode: This selection sets the Dolby decoder to operate
in the same way as the Dialnorm Only setting above, except
that the Line profile is applied to the main outputs as well as
to the AUX output.
•
RF Mode: This selection sets the Dolby decoder to operate
with an RF compression profile. This mode provides the most
aggressive amount of compression resulting in the least
dynamic range in the output signal. The term RF is derived
from the use of this profile as a suitable one for use with the
RF output of set top decoders, which have a limited audio
dynamic range.
• Metadata Scroll: Rotating this knob scrolls the list of available
Dolby metadata up or down, actively updating the metadata list.
The arrows at the right of the list indicate whether you can scroll to
view more data above or below.
The metadata from the selected Dolby program is shown in the
window at the center of the screen. This metadata is updated live.
the Metadata Scroll control allows you to simply scroll up and

• Limits: Rotating this knob sets the upper limit of the display.
Pressing and then rotating sets the lower limit. Top and bottom
limits are adjustable in 1 dB increments. This function is available
on the custom meter scale only.
• Lower Scale: (This function is available on the custom meter scale
only.) This knob controls the size of the lower part of the scale in
relation to the overall scale. You can reduce the size of the lower
part of the scale to allow more accuracy in viewing the upper part.
Rotating this button sets the division point between the upper and
lower parts of the scale in 1 dBr increments and it moves the arrow
in the meter display up or down. As you adjust the division, the
percent of full scale (%FS) in the Size section of this function, is
continuously recalculated. Likewise, if the Limits control is
adjusted, the %FS is also recalculated.

Pressing the knob and then rotating it adjusts the %FS. This value
cannot be adjusted to a number in excess of the calculated %FS.
Rotating the knob counter-clockwise reduces the %FS in 1%
increments. It may not be adjusted to less than 5%.
• Reference: Rotating this knob adjusts the display reference level.
This function is available on all scales except the AES scale.
• Upper Segment Color: Rotating this knob cycles the upper color of
the displayed sample level meter color through a wide variety of
colors. Pressing this knob allows you to adjust the division between
the upper and middle segments. Color boundaries are adjustable in
1 dB increments, and have the same range as the bottom and top
limits of the meter.
• Middle Segment Color: Rotating this knob cycles the middle color
of the displayed sample level meter color through a wide variety of
colors. Pressing this knob allows adjusting the division between the
middle and lower segments. Color boundaries are adjustable in 1
dB increments, and have the same range as the bottom and top
limits of the meter.
• Lower Display Color: Rotating this knob cycles the lower color of
the displayed sample level meter color through a wide variety of
colors.
Monitor Mixer Configuration Menu

With the combination of the Volume control, channel clustering, and
speaker setting, you has a very powerful, intuitive tool to arrange the
metering and monitoring options on the Main Screen so users can tell
at a glance what is happening with the monitored sources.
• Set Cluster: Pressing this knob continues on to the Cluster
Configuration Screen, where you can configure and label the
meter clusters, and how they will display on the Main Screen.
• Mixer Channel Select: Rotating this knob moves the red selection
boxes from side to side, selecting the monitor mixer channel and
pair to configure.
• Channel Func: Rotating this knob selects either L Front, R Front,
Center, LFE, L Sur., R Sur., L Rear Sur., R Rear Sur., M Sur.,
or None.
I m po r ta nt :
It is necessary to accurately set the Channel Function for each
channel because many other system functions depend upon it. This
includes Channel Clustering, Loudness Measurement, output to a
surround sound system, and output to the internal speaker system.
• Channel Trim: Rotating this knob changes the gain. This knob has
a range of -60 dB to +12 dB (inclusive) in 1 dB steps. Pressing and
holding this knob for over 1 second returns the setting to 0 dB. You
can mute the channel by turning this knob counterclockwise beyond
-60 dB.
• Audio Delay: Rotating this knob allows you to add an audio delay
of up to 170 ms in 1 ms increments to the speaker audio. As you turn
the knob, the audio delay varies dynamically so that, while
watching the associated video, you can visually and audibly

determine the correct delay. Pressing the knob toggles between no
delay (Off) and the current delay setting.
Note:
While adjusting the delay, the monitor may temporarily
produce a small clicking noise.
• Source Pair Select: Rotating this knob steps you through all the
possible source pairs for this particular monitoring pair, or Off.
Pressing this knob has no effect.
You can choose any one of the eight channel pairs of any active
input or output card, or Off. In Dolby-capable units, the five Dolby
output pairs will be added. This will select between one of many
inputs (five processor cards at 16 channel pairs each plus five Dolby
output pairs). The choices are presented to you as Slot x (<card
name>) Pair y or Dolby Decoder Pair z.
Setting the channel to Off disables the other knobs for that channel
pair.
Turning a channel Off removes its meter, its associated text, and its
phase LED from the Main screen. The remaining meters will
automatically scale and rearrange themselves to fill the void.
• Speaker Mute On/Off: Rotating or pressing this knob turns the
knob label on or off. When the Speaker Mute is On, no sound will
emit from the speakers, although the metering will work normally.
This mute is designed to be engaged when an external surround
sound system is in use instead of the internal speakers.
• Phase LED On/Off: Rotating or pressing this knob turns the
selected pair-wise phase indicator on or off. The effect is to either
enable or disable a phase indicator on the Main Screen.
The phase indicators in this menu can be enabled for adjacent
channels that are part of the same cluster only. A phase indicator
can not be enabled for any channel that is off. The box is disabled for
any phase indicator that cannot be enabled. Refer to Arbitrary Phase
Measurement Menu on page 94 to set up phase comparisons
between non-adjacent channels.

Menu Modifications for Input I/O Modules
The menus automatically adjust themselves to accommodate any I/O
modules that are added to the system. This means that the channels of
any new input cards and the mixed outputs of any output cards
automatically appear as sources in the available monitoring or output
menus. The output cards automatically cause output menus to appear
so that you can assign sources to them.
I m po r ta nt :
If a card is removed, the unit will return to the factory default settings
when it is turned on again.
Do NOT add or remove processor cards with system power applied.

Adding a Redundant Power Supply
The AMP2-16V Series monitors come with a single 150W power supply
that is sufficient to drive a fully-loaded monitor. However, an
additional power supply (also 150W) is available as an option to
provide for system redundancy. Power supply modules are to be
installed into their specialized slots on the far left and far right of the
back panel. When adding an optional redundant power supply,
remove the blank cover to gain access to the power supply slot.
Precautions
Before unpacking your new power supply, make sure you have a staticfree surface on which to work.
Requirements
• A small Phillips screwdriver
• The redundant power supply option kit (See Option Kits on page
164 for more information.)
Adding the AC Power Supply
To install an additional power supply, follow the instructions below.
Note:
I m po r ta nt :

It may prove helpful to place the monitor with the rear panel
facing you for this procedure.
1.
Remove the power cord.
2.
Using a small Phillips screwdriver, remove the blank cover plate
on the rear panel on the far right-hand side.
Keep the blank cover plate for future use. We recommend taping it to
the side of the monitor; but do not cover the air vent.
3.
Slide the power supply into the slot from the rear panel, making
sure that the power supply’s connector seats securely into the
connector inside the monitor.
4.
Replace the screws that hold the power supply in place.

The DC power supply can be used with a redundant AC or DC power
supply.
To install the DC power supply, follow the instructions below.
Note:

Adding/Removing Modules
Wohler’s standard models typically do not populate all five slots,
allowing for the addition of other modules. This section describes the
procedures for adding new cards and removing existing cards.
I m po r ta nt :
After adding or removing a card from the monitor, the software will
automatically recognize the new card configuration, and automatically
implement all appropriate changes to the menu system. No software
upgrades or further modifications are necessary. However, it may take
two minutes for the unit to boot the first time after a card swap. A
message will briefly be displayed, and the user will have to press
Initialize to proceed.
Precautions
Before unpacking your new module, make sure you have a static-free
surface on which to work.
CAUTION!
Static discharge can cause serious damage to sensitive semiconductor
devices. Avoid handling the circuit boards in high static environments
such as carpeted areas, and when synthetic or wool fiber clothing is
worn. Touch the frame to dissipate static charge before removing
boards from a frame, and always exercise proper grounding
precautions when handling circuit boards.
Do NOT add or remove processor cards with system power applied.
Requirements
• A small Phillips screwdriver
• A wrench, preferably an adjustable one
• If you are adding hardware, the components of the option kit you
want to add
• If you are removing hardware, a static-free bag or container

Adding an I/O Module
Decision Point:
If you would like to add a 3G Card, then continue on to Adding a 3G
Option Card immediately below.
Otherwise, if you would like to add a different type of I/O module,
continue on to Adding a Non-3G Card I/O Module on page 162.
Adding a 3G Option Card
To add a new 3G card, follow the instructions below.
Note:
I m po r ta nt :
It may prove helpful to place the monitor with the rear panel
facing you for this procedure.
1.
Place the monitor on a solid, static-free surface and remove the
power cord(s).
2.
Using a small Phillips screwdriver, remove the top cover.
3.
Remove the blank cover plate from the rear panel for the new I/O
module’s slot. Remember to save the four screws for the new rear
panel cover plate.
Keep the blank cover plate for future use. We recommend taping it to
the side of the monitor; but do not cover the air vent.
4.
Remove the 3G Option Card from its shipping container being
careful to remain grounded.
5.
When you receive your 3G Option Card, it will arrive partially
assembled. Verify that the external nuts and washers on the gold
BNC connectors are loose.
6.
Insert the 3G Option card into the rear panel opening being careful
not to snag the ribbon cables. Keep them folded against the circuit
board to keep them out of the way.
7.
Insert the card into the slot and press firmly until it plugs in
securely.
8.
Insert the rear panel cover screws and tighten.
