Digital audio specialist Jünger Audio will be attending this year’s CABSAT with a range of loudness control and audio processing products for the broadcast and pro audio industries.
The line-up includes Jünger Audio’s ground-breaking D*AP4 (four channel) and D*AP8 (eight channel) processors featuring the company’s proprietary Level Magic algorithm, which offers audibly transparent loudness processing without colouration, pumping, breathing or distortion. Aimed at radio and television companies, these processors allows broadcaster to take full control of loudness and level in stereo and surround, thus ensuring that they always deliver exceptional audio quality while staying within the boundaries of all specified loudness regulations.
Jünger Audio will also be showing the D*AP 8 MAP EDITION, an eight channel surround monitoring audio processor that delivers truly comprehensive surround audio and Dolby programme monitoring. With D*AP 8 MAP EDITION on board, broadcasters can audition their stereo or surround mixes, check compliance with relevant loudness standards and verify critical Dolby Digital metadata parameters (similar to the discontinued DP570) to ensure that their audio always reaches its maximum potential.
Decoding, encoding and transcoding audio from or to any Dolby format is another key requirement of today’s broadcast market. Jünger Audio’s D*AP8 CODEC EDITION, the newest addition to the company’s D*AP family, is ideally suited to these applications and can also manage, generate or emulate all metadata parameters. Given that Dolby® recently discontinued its DP series of products, Jünger Audio’s D*AP8 CODEC EDITION perfectly fills the gap, providing a viable replacement for any of the legacy Dolby hardware processors.
For voice processing applications Jünger Audio has the D*AP4 VAP EDITION, a two channel voice audio processor that balances the need for EQ correction and compression with the requirement for natural sound.
What makes this processor so special, particularly for people working in TV voice over and feature film ADR, is the inclusion of Jünger Audios proprietary Spectral Signature dynamic EQ. This clever creative tool offers automatic and dynamic EQ control to balance spectral differences. By analysing incoming audio and comparing its spectrum with individually predetermined voice fingerprints, the unit can automatically apply dynamic EQ corrections to give a consistent sound.
The D*AP4 VAP EDITION is equally interesting to radio broadcasters who want to create an aural identity for their radio stations. The same spectral sound management principles all ow the unit to measure specific voice recordings and use these sound fingerprints as a reference. The Spectral Signature algorithm matches all subsequent live recordings to these fingerprints, thus creating a dedicated station sound.
Jünger Audio processors can be customised by broadcasters to precisely suite their requirements and this option will be highlighted at CABSAT. By choosing either a 4 or 8 channel D*AP FLX base unit with true peak limiting, customers can then select from a range of optional processes and licences including loudness, dynamics, EQ, upmix/downmix, failover, voiceover and FM transmission conditioning.
Also available are loudness management software plugins for both Mac and PC and modular hardware products with new, more efficient and powerful card options, allowing for better performance whilst requiring fewer cards. For many typical applications, this means less rack space is needed and costs are reduced.
