While it’s not possible to turn back time, Wohler Technologies thinks it’s found a way to retime
it, and is showing off the newest version of its media retiming solution known as Tachyon
Wormhole. A file-based retiming solution that enables run-time adjustment of media assets,
the system preserves video and audio quality, as well as closed-caption/subtitle integrity.
“We’ve seen a lot of pickup, especially in the U.S., where retiming content is very prevalent,”
said Craig Newbury, vice president of sales and marketing for Wohler.
The system works to adjust run-time of filebased assets by analyzing pixel levels and then
rebuilding frames as necessary. The system can resynchronize each audio and video frame to
allow for programming to be retimed, the company said.
The company also announced a range of new products within the company’s new iAM series
—also known as intelligent Adaptable Monitoring. The company will show off the new
iAM-MVAM multifunction confidence monitor, which can handle inputs from multi-rate SDI,
ASI and IP interfaces. It will also show the Wohler AMP2-E16V audio/video processing monitor,
AMP1-16M dual-input SDI audio monitor, and the RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation
Platform, which aids broadcasters in meeting the array of target bit rates, resolutions and frame
