AXON to enhance Synapse with Linear Acoustic technology
AXON Digital Design will enhance its modular Synapse infrastructure and communications system with DTV audio loudness management and stereo-to-5.1 upmix algorithms from Linear Acoustic.
Linear Acoustic developed the AEROMAX-5.1 channel loudness and dynamic range control algorithm and the upMAX upmixing algorithm with AutoMAX-II to fix inconsistent DTV audio loudness, or the so-called "loud commercial problem." AXON will incorporate these functions into its Synapse modular system on two different platforms. AXON will show this new module at the 2009 NAB Show.
The new functionality within Synapse will protect viewers from loudness shifts and loss of surround sound. The built-in loudness control, upmixing, and metadata control ensure a high-quality, seamless surround sound experience for viewers.
