KSL-TV Adds Linear Acoustic Processor

Salt Lake City’s KSL-TV is now using Linear Acoustic’s AERO.air 10-channel audio processor for controlling levels and creating surround sound from stereo audio components of the station’s broadcasts.

"Like many broadcasters, we experienced a lot of problems with varying audio levels for network and local programming, particularly during playout of news and sports," said Brent Robinson, KSL-TV’s chief engineer. "We needed a way to address this discrepancy in loudness levels and even out audio volume, and the Linear Acoustic AERO.air has proven to be a wonderful solution. We noticed a significant difference immediately upon implementing the processor, and we haven't received any comments about disparities in audio loudness since that day."

The AERO.air is a third-generation product and is the first such processor to incorporate built-in Dolby Digital (AC-3) encoding. The unit is available in three different configurations to match user requirements ranging from simple stereo up to 10 channels of audio.

KSL-TV is an NBC affiliate owned by Bonneville International and serves viewing audiences in Utah and parts of four adjoining states.
