Smart Audio Solutions at IBC 2017

Jünger Audio aims at highlighting effectiveness within broadcast environment

Smart Audio means investing in complementing, reliable and future proofed equipment that can deliver audio content, in automated as well as non-automated workflows, while still maintaining high quality. The concept has been adopted by broadcasters such as Sky Sports, Input Media in London and ARD Tagesschau, the German prime time television news service.

“Today everybody expects and requires a constant flow of high quality digital media,” says Peter Poers, Head of Business Development at Jünger Audio. “However, broadcasters are reluctant to invest resources on simply improving audio quality. The Smart Audio concept not only guarantees a predictable, high quality performance, but also offers a remarkable increase in efficiency for the production and post-production processes.”

By using Jünger Audio’s Smart Audio adaptive algorithm solutions, customers can achieve high quality sound in a efficient way and with minimal requirement for manual control or intervention from an operator. This is of interest not only for broadcast applications, but also for new services like remote production and live streaming.

Alongside intelligent and adaptive processing algorithms, the introduction of Smart Audio allows broadcasters to choose devices that are fully interoperable with others in the broadcast environment and can seamlessly integrate with both playout automation systems and logging and monitoring processes.

Jünger Audio will be showing its full range of D*AP products, all of which incorporate a collection of adaptive processing algorithms. They also employ the industry standard Ember+ remote protocol that allows seamless integration with an increasingly wide range of compatible equipment. The range includes natural sounding products for loudness control, audio monitoring, audio conditioning & metadata management and Dolby® decoding, encoding and transcoding. Among them are the D*AP8 MAP EDITION surround monitoring audio processor; the D*AP8 CODEC EDITION processor that provides a viable replacement for any discontinued legacy Dolby® hardware processors; the D*AP4 VAP EDITION two channel voice audio processor and the flagship D*AP8 TAP EDITION television audio processor, which ensures consistency of loudness and sonic “character” across multiple programme sources.
