The OTV-2.0/5.1 card makes Orban’s standalone processing technologies for Radio, TV and Streaming available in the industry-standard openGear format. In addition to the hallmark OPTIMOD processing capabilities (including the exclusive Orban Loudness Controller), the openGear card offers iMix Surround Headphone, a patented Orban technology that creates 3D/Immersive audio in any users’ headphones. Orban Mono2Stereo is also available; this technology produces an artifact-free, wide soundstage with natural, spectrally balanced stereo from mono content. The OTV-2.0/5.1 openGear card also incorporates a 6 generation rendering-based upmixer and downmixer, along with 1770 Loudness measurement and compliance.

The new Orban openGear card joins a suite of advanced audio processing technologies introduced by Orban for this platform last year.
