Dynamics processing specialist Jünger Audio (N4937)is showing LEVEL MAGIC in a complete set-up that offers a fully-integrated workflow solution for managing surround sound and Dolby coded 5.1 audio signals in production, ingest and playout.
Peter Pörs, managing director of Jünger Audio, said: “Our aim is to offer an outstanding integrated workflow solution that incorporates signal acquisition, monitoring, processing and smart 5.1/2.0 fail over switching, including program metadata management. These new additions to the C8000 LEVEL MAGIC system will provide our customers with a solution for managing 5.1 audio and Dolby coded streaming that is far more effective than anything else on the market.”
Jünger Audio’s LEVEL MAGIC is a sophisticated adaptive level control algorithm that is designed to adjust the level from any source at any time, with no pumping, breathing or distortion. It is based on a simultaneous combination of an AGC, a Transient Processor for fast changes and a “look ahead” Peak Limiter for continuous unattended control of any program material, regardless of its original source.
Capable of using any kind of I/O (Analog and Digital) sources, as well as SDI, HD/SDI, Dolby 5.1 and all its related metadata, LEVEL MAGIC is available in a variety of configurations to suit different applications. It can also be configured and remotely controlled via a web interface – and it now complies with the ITU’s BS.R1770 loudness control specifications as level detection can easily be switched to ITU mode.
The LEVEL MAGIC Surround Sound Suite
The latest addition to the range is the C8086-8, an 8 channel DSP card that incorporates a new Dolby Metadata Generator option. This is designed for use with the modular frame C8000 system, which provides audio processing for a wide variety of application including audio production, broadcasting, distribution, re-broadcasting and audio for video.
The new DSP card allows users to verify, modify or generate metadata, including Dialnorm, according to Dolby specifications for both Dolby E and Dolby Digital. The card also incorporates Dolby Metadata display and editing and eight Metadata presets. The Metadata Generator with LEVEL Magic offers a unique processing combination that guarantees proper adjustment of audio and metadata.
