Linear Acoustic shows DVB-ASI input option for LAMBDA monitor

Linear Acoustic demonstrated its LAMBDA professional digital audio and metadata monitor with a new DVB-ASI input option at IBC2009.

The LAMBDA audio monitor can decode Dolby Digital (AC-3) directly from an applied DVB-ASI transport stream, analyze the results via ITU-R BS.1770 loudness measurement, and display metadata information.

LAMBDA displays both audio and metadata and allows simulation of metadata effects to provide accurate monitoring. The base model includes standard features such as AES and HD/SD-SDI inputs, ITU-R BS.1770 loudness measurement, and an acoustically tuned speaker system with digital crossovers and biamplification. The product also offers full-time, two-channel LtRt or LoRo downmix via AES and balanced analog outputs, AES outputs of decoded and/or de-embedded audio channels, and a front-panel headphone output.
