Bridge Technologies adds new audio capabilities to VB440 monitoring unit

Bridge Technologies, a provider of end-to-end monitoring solutions in the broadcast field, announce that they will be demonstrating the new audio capabilities which have been added to their VB440 monitoring unit. These additions will allow audio engineers the ability to monitor and work with immersive audio standards anywhere in the world, using only an HTML-5 based browser.

Designed for the monitoring and analysis of ST 2110 and ST 2022-6 defined high-bitrate broadcast media traffic, the VB440 is a crucial component of core broadcasting networks, production studios, master control centres and outside broadcast vehicles and venues. Its ability to monitor both uncompressed and compressed data – including new functionality for monitoring JPEG XS and HDR signals – on an ultra-low latency basis making it particularly ideal for live production, especially on a remote or distributed basis.
The most recent additions focus on delivering a range of audio monitoring abilities which have been developed in collaboration with professional audio engineers - including a Gonio meter, Loudness radar and the ability to measure multichannel audio across 64 channels within one flow. Channel ordering can be signalled as part of AC-3 or E-AC-3 bitstreams or per-stream configured channel order . All are presented using an intuitive, easy-to-use GUI – including a ‘room meter’ visualisation that gives engineers the information they need in an accessible, visually-engaging format.
Most importantly though, these new audio metering capabilities can be applied to a range of surround and immersive audio standards; including 7.1 and 5.1. The new audio tools give the ability to specify customized mapping for these setups and, crucially, grant an ability to listen through a web browser in a stereo downmix – thereby allowing an audio editor to work anywhere, even in spaces that are not equipped with a comprehensive speaker setup.
