WBPH and WMBC keep CALM with Jünger

Two stations in two neighboring markets that share engineering ideas and resources — WBPH in Philadelphia and WMBC in New Jersey — combined their technical expertise to search out the loudness control system that worked best for them. Both stations have invested in Jünger Audio’s T*AP Television Audio Processors.

WBPH-TV, an independent full power TV station based in Allentown PA, is carried by all local cable as well as DirecTV and Dish Network. WMBC-TV is an independent full-power commercial TV station in Newton, NJ. Its programming is available over-the-air, on cable TV and satellite throughout the New Jersey and New York area.

WMBC has invested in three Jünger Audio T*AP units, all of which have been installed in its Master Control (Cut Studio) in West Caldwell, NJ. WBPH has installed one T*AP in its Master Control in Allentown, PA.

Primarily designed for TV playout facilities, this wide band 8 channel processor (8x1, 4x2, or 5.1+2) provides Loudness control, Upmix and surround sound processing for up to eight channels of audio. The unit, which is fully compliant to the ITU standard and fulfils the requests given by ATSC A/85 and EBU R128 loudness recommendations, focuses on automatic and adaptive loudness control using Jünger Audio’s renowned LEVEL MAGIC II algorithm.

Optional Dolby Decoding and Encoding (AC-3, E-AC-3 or HE-AAC), as well as metadata management, are also provided along with 5.1 Downmix and Jünger Audio’s 5.1 UPMIX circuit. T*AP can handle digital inputs (AES) and, through interface slots, all other usual audio formats including all SDI versions (SD, HD, 3G). It is controllable through front panel and Web based GUI, plus remote control, and GPI.
