Astro turns to JAA.S for first Dolby Atmos monitoring system in Malaysia


Having celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, All-Asian Satellite Television and Radio Operator (Astro) has installed its first Dolby Atmos monitoring system into its All-Asia Broadcast Centre in Kuala Lumpur. The satellite television and IPTV provider monopolises sports broadcasting in Malaysia and Brunei, for which most major sports events are transmitted to the main broadcast channels.

The UEFA Euro 2020 football games in 2021 were broadcast in UHD 4K format through a Dolby Atmos immersive sound system for the first time. Following the games, a Dolby Atmos monitoring system was cited for future incoming UHD 4K sport content. As a distributor of Wohler, JAA.S was requested to assist the broadcaster provide a solution. Equipped with a Dolby Atmos decoder option for immersive sound monitoring, JAA.S proposed a Wohler iAM-12G-SDI video and audio monitor. Incorporating two 4K / 12G SDI inputs on BNC, the upgraded version including Dolby D, Dolby D+ and Dolby E enables decoding of Atmos content from either SDI or AES3.

“We provided an iAM-12G-SDI as a demonstration unit prior to UEFA 2020,” commented JAA Systems Sdn Bhd senior sales engineer, Kaartigaiyan. “It was the earliest monitoring system to be equipped with Dolby Atmos. The multi-channel multi-source audio-video monitor is easy to operate, yet it is powerful enough to provide high quality monitoring of 12G, IP-ST 2110, 2022-6 signals. The proof of concept proved to be a success, and the compact monitor ticked all the boxes for Astro’s many requirements.”

In addition to the iAM-12G-SDI, Astro also acquired three iVAM1-3 16 channel monitors with Dolby for their Media Suite studio monitoring. “Wohler is honoured that Astro has become the first broadcaster in Malaysia to adopt and purchase iAM-12G-SDI units with Dolby Atmos monitoring,” added Wohler Technologies’ APAC sales manager, Mohamad Azam. “The powerful and flexible iAM series is future-proofed to support Astro in their development of Dolby Atmos immersive audio.”
