Oregon Public Broadcasting deploys Linear Acoustic multichannel audio processor

Linear Acoustic has supplied an OCTiMAX 5.1 digital television audio processor to Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland for installation at KOPB-HD within its rebuilt master control facilities.

The station will use the OCTiMAX 5.1 system to transmit surround sound audio along with its HD programming, even when sending out two-channel material. In addition to providing multichannel audio processing for the station's SD and HD audio paths, the OCTiMAX 5.1 automatically detects a stereo source and up-mixes it to full 5.1-channel surround.

The OCTiMAX 5.1 digital television audio processor combines multichannel, multiband dynamic processing with audio metadata functionality and local audio insertion capability. An auto voiceover feature allows insertion of voiceover audio, while an integral UpMax 5.1 channel surround-field synthesizer produces 5.1-channel audio from a standard two-channel mix, with full control of center width and surround depth. The resulting signal is also fully mono, stereo and matrix surround downmix compatible.
