VIETNAM TELEVISION (VTV) INSTALLS EIGHT SYMETRIX SYMNET EDGE DANTE AUDIO DSPs

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON: Vietnam Television, or VTV, is the largest broadcaster in Vietnam and has been in operation for over forty years. With six nationwide broadcast channels currently in operation and two more under development, VTV is building a state-of-the-art infrastructure. Recently, HD Vietnam, the Symetrix distributor located in Hanoi, supplied VTV with eight SymNet Edge DSPs. HD Vietnam designed and installed this new audio backbone, and their customer, VTV, programmed the system without additional assistance – a testament to SymNet’s ease of use.

Each of the eight SymNet Edge frames has four slots to accommodate different input or output formats. VTV loaded them up with an even split of four-channel digital input and four-channel digital output cards. They accept and return digital audio to and from a server and studios via AES. The Dante network connects all of the frames together, effectively pooling all of the inputs, outputs, and DSP resources into one massive audio processing hub. “A big part of what VTV was looking for in the new system was the ability to route any input to any output,” explained Nguyen Huyen Dieu, owner of HD Vietnam. “They wanted full matrixing and audio processing on all channels.” In conjunction with the SymNet Edge system, Ross Video audio de-embeders and audio embeders strip and re-associate audio with its respective video stream.

“The SymNet Edge is a unique processing system,” said Dieu. “It is very powerful and flexible, yet easy to program. Symetrix has proven its reliability in the Vietnamese broadcast industry through its long line of broadcast processors.” Because VTV’s programs are currently broadcasting in multi-channel audio to serve different dialect regions and because program material frequently possesses only two-channel information, VTV uses the SymNet Edge processing to enable a smooth transition. Whenever program material on channels three and four is absent, the SymNet Edge processor duplicates channels one and two on channels three and four.

“VTV is very happy with the capabilities of the SymNet Edge system, and the VTV engineers are also very happy with its ease of use,” said Dieu. The national broadcaster is already planning new HD channels that will employ SymNet Edge processing. If VTV grows beyond its current I/O count or DSP resources, it will be a simple matter to add input/output or more Edge frames and to connect them seamlessly to the existing system via the Dante network.

SYMETRIX EXPANDS LIBRARY OF APPS FOR JUPITER TURN-KEY DSP

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON: Symetrix announces the addition of seventeen new apps for its family of Jupiter app-based turn-key DSPs. The three different hardware units in the series – Jupiter 4, Jupiter 8, and Jupiter 12 – differ only in their input/output counts and are user-controllable from Symetrix ARC wall panel remotes, third-party systems, and Symetrix ARC-WEB browser-based software for smartphones. The addition brings the total number of available Jupiter apps close to one hundred and expands the already impressive range of situations for which the Symetrix Jupiter provides reliable processing at an extremely competitive price point.

“We’ve been listening to our customers,” said Trent Wagner, senior product manager at Symetrix, “and we’ve carefully chosen the new apps to release to ensure they offer functionality that addresses the breadth of requests we’ve received. Additionally, we’ve enhanced nearly all of the existing apps with multi-channel gain and mute controls to simplify user control.”

Everyone loves a free app that has more functionality, saves time and makes the user look smarter than the next guy (or gal). So, go to our website and download the apps that will make your next Jupiter installation a virtual breeze.”

Six core apps form the heart of the addition and are elaborated according to the input/output counts of the three Jupiter hardware devices. “BGM Zone Mixer 1” provides background music routing to multiple zones with two levels of priority. “Dual Matrix Mixer 1” provides flexible mixing and routing and allows integrators to assign any input to a mix, assign those mixes to submixes, and route submixes to outputs. “Gain-Sharing Automixer 3” provides a gain-sharing automixer with feedback processing on the outputs together with matrixed outputs. Similarly, “Gating Automixer 3” provides a gating automixer with feedback processing on the outputs together with matrixed outputs. “Priority Zone Mixer 2” provides a multi-zone priority mixer with paging and SPL computing. Finally, “Sound Reinforcement 12” provides heavy input processing and full-range outputs with feedback processing.

The growing library of Jupiter apps are optimized for specific applications and venues including houses of worship, auditoriums, retail and hospitality establishments, sports facilities, and transportation terminals. The time needed to learn the software is zip. With Jupiter turn-key DSP sound contractors end up doing what they do best, which is to dial in really great sound.

Jünger Audio Redefines Audio Processing at IBC 2013

Dynamics specialist Jünger Audio will use the IBC 2013 platform (Hall 10, Stand A49) to announce a new direction of creating solution based packages for its entire product range – one that is designed to make it much easier for customers to identify the exact processing solution they are looking for.

“As there is now a trend among some of our customers to use products like the T*AP (Television Audio Processor) for applications such as radio or PA, we decided to separate processing hardware from the feature set,” says Jünger Audio’s Managing Director Peter Pörs. “This change acknowledges the way in which many of our customers are working and allows Jünger Audio’s highly recognized functionality packages previously known as T*AP and M*AP to live on in common hardware.”

The new strategy will see Jünger Audio’s key hardware products marketed as universal processing platforms, with each one capable of handling transcoding and routing, as well as audio processing, and offering various ways of control including through automation or third party equipment. Instead of specific product names such as T*AP, M*AP and V*AP, Jünger Audio will now use these names to identify application packages. Once customers have chosen a processor with the right channel count and specified the application area they want to address (radio, TV, production, post production etc.), Jünger Audio will deliver the relevant software package with the audio processor box of choice to create a solution that exactly matches the customer’s needs.

“By using a universal processing platform, the new modularity of our product range will get as close as possible to each customer’s workflow,” Peter Pörs says. “Managing audio loudness with our renowned non-destructive Level Magic™ algorithm will be one of many features, along with 3G, HD and SD SDI embedded audio handling and high quality limiters, compressors, delays and equalisers. This modularity concept will also allow for specific coding hardware to decode, encode or transcode Dolby®-E, Dolby®-D (AC-3) and Dolby® Digital plus (E-AC-3), as well as HE-AAC formats.”

Pörs adds that the proliferation of distribution formats has made audio quality control during production more important than ever.

“In the past it might have been sufficient to monitor only the main mix, ignoring all transport coding and metadata implications,” he says. “But with all the simulcast formats in use today, the production team needs to simulate the home listening experience by real time metadata emulation. Adding this functionality to a hardware based monitoring controller, combined with loudness measurement and logging features, is the feature set of our QC and production monitoring solution M*AP.

“We are clearly refocusing on production and the fantastic first feedback we have received for our new voice processor V*AP evidently signals that we’re on the right track with our range of products. The V*AP offers all the processing arsenal you need for highest quality voice processing including mic preamps, compressors, expanders, limiters, and voice optimized equalizers. The V*AP also includes a voice optimized version of Spectral Signature, a process using individual spectral reference footprints as a real-time comparison reference for incoming audio, adding filtering only if it is necessary to generate spectral consistency.”

Pörs adds that the company’s extensive product range will now include a plug-in version of Level Magic™ in native plugin formats (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX, Audiosuite, etc.) for MAC and PC, 32- and 64-bit systems. This will be launched at IBC 2013.

“For the first time ever it will be possible for production staff using equipment such as Pro Tools to control audio loudness using our Level Magic™ algorithm,” he says. The addition of a plug-in to our range means that, from production right though to transmission, broadcasters can use Level Magic™ processing throughout their entire production and broadcasting chain.”

Jünger Audio Unveils the V*AP Voice Processor To Asian Broadcasters

Dynamics specialist Jünger Audio will be showing its new V*AP two channel voice processor at Broadcast Asia 2013 (Booth 5E6-01). This will give broadcasters in the region their first opportunity to view a product that is specifically designed to make life easier for engineers working in radio stations and TV production voice-over studios.

V*AP, the latest addition to Jünger Audio’s award-winning *AP family of products, draws on the company’s extensive experience with previous Voice Processing devices such as its v-series, but adds new tools and algorithms to create a new, easier and more efficient approach to voice processing with no compromise in sound quality.

V*AP’s main task is to offer perfect control of microphone recordings. Jünger Audio has also included processing such as HP/LP filtering, dynamic section, full parametric EQ and de-essing. All of the V*AP functions can be easily set up by the audio engineer, making it hassle free for any journalist or reporter to use it. Jünger Audio has also provided a dedicated leveler combined with a voice over circuit to help auto-mix voice programs into loudness-based broadcasting on the fly. Using the optional SDI I/O card automated voice over for embedded audio becomes an attractive feature of the V*AP.

Available as either an insert into a mixing desk or as a stand-alone unit, V*AP offers interfaces that allow integration in existing environments via an AES insert. The unit can also be used with an optional analogue board that adds two high quality mic-preamps.

Another key feature of V*AP is the inclusion of Spectral Signature™, Jünger Audio’s automatic spectral sound management algorithm that dynamically controls spectral balance to create consistent voice recordings meeting a dedicated station sound. Spectral Signature™ can automatically analyze the recording of the voice to create a sound fingerprints that become the reference the algorithm matches to on all subsequent live recordings.

At Broadcast Asia 2013, Jünger Audio will also show its ground-breaking M*AP audio loudness processor, which combines an audio monitor controller and a loudness measurement device in one unit, thus providing comprehensive quality control and loudness monitoring for anyone working in a production or broadcast environment.

Designed for quality checking surround (5.1) and/or stereo programs, M*AP can be used for live monitoring and also to ensure compliance with today’s standards and regulations (ITU 1770-3, ATSC A/85 or EBU R128).

The unit comes with alarm signals that alert the operator when pre-set loudness thresholds are exceeded, and these signals can be delivered by simple GPOs and/or SNMP traps, which carry actual loudness values. Loudness measurements can be performed over a long run or over a fraction of a program, or both. These measurements can be triggered by automation systems via GPIs or via the network – or even manually by buttons of the X*AP remote panel.

Alongside loudness measurements, M*AP also offers functionality for acoustical QA. It has eight speaker outputs that allow for A/B checking of stereo compatibility of a surround downmix through alternative speakers, as well as via L/R front speakers.

Peter Pörs, Managing Director of Jünger Audio, says: “By incorporating 3G, HD and SD auto detection, M*AP gives users the option of dealing with all 16 channels of SDI embedded audio at the same time. This means that you can listen to one program while permanently logging the loudness of two (5.1 +2 mode) or four (4×2 mode) programs. It is also possible to send further embedded programs to M*AP’s AES outputs to feed a third party instrument for analyzing and/or display.”

For no extra cost, the M*AP’s SDI board acts as an embedder as well and comes with video delay to compensate for any kind of audio delay. This feature is ideal for those looking to maintain lip sync in QA suites or control rooms. M*AP also features a built-in Dolby® Metadata generator and an optional Dolby® decoder that allows users to decode Dolby-E, Dolby-D (AC-3) and Dolby Digital plus (E-AC-3).

Jünger Audio will complete its Broadcast Asia line-up with the Award-winning T*AP TV Audio Processor and Loudness Logger, a powerful tool that offers customers of all Jünger Audio levelling processors an easy way to monitor the development of the loudness over time. Using this new software, broadcasters can monitor in real time or by analyzing previously stored loudness log files. This innovation is critical as all broadcasters now need to show precisely how their audio levels are performing in order to comply with new legislation on Loudness.

MAGIX Becomes The First DAW Manufacturer To Embrace The Music Producers Guild’s ISRC Initiative

The Music Producers Guild’s efforts to establish an industry standard for embedding ISRC data within digital music files has received a significant boost with the announcement by MAGIX Software GmbH that it will incorporate EBU (European Broadcasting Union) Broadcast WAV files in the latest software upstate for its popular Sequoia Digital Audio Workstation.

André Standke, Product Manager Sequoia, MAGIX Software GmbH, says: “For years, Sequoia has been an integral part of leading broadcast and mastering studios worldwide. We focus our attention on delivering the best sound and tools by working closely with engineers and music producers including Sterling Sound in New York, Air Studios, Alchemy Mastering in London and many more.

“As optical media is gradually replaced by file and server based audio content, we will continue to support the changes to the mastering process with innovative developments such as EBU tech3352 and we are happy to announce this feature is now incorporated into Sequoia, our number one product on the market.”

From the MPG’s point of view, the importance of ISRC cannot be understated. ISRC, which stands for International Standard Recording Code, is uniquely allocated to every song recorded. These codes are then registered with royalty payment agencies, thus ensuring that recording artists and copyright holders are properly remunerated for their work when it is played on radio or TV.

In the past the ISRC information was included within sub data streams of a CD, but in today’s digital age, where music is often stored on digital WAV files, the ability to securely associate ISRC data with specific tracks has been lost. This is because the only common way to incorporate ISRC into a WAV file is via the file name – and if someone changes the file name or it is truncated or amended by a software program, the vital ISRC information can easily go missing.

To resolve this problem, the MPG’s Mastering Group has been working closely with the EBU to develop an industry-approved method for embedding ISRC data within a WAV file. Following discussions, it was agreed that the best solution was to use was the EBU’s existing Broadcast WAV File (BWF), a variant of the traditional WAV file that was developed for use by broadcasters. The EBU has now agreed to adopt the BWF as standard so that all-important ISRC data can be securely associated with specific tracks.

MPG Mastering Group board member and Alchemy Mastering Engineer Barry Grint, who is leading the BWF initiative, adds: “MAGIX’ decision to incorporate BWF into Sequoia is a significant step forward for the MPG’s initiative and we are delighted that the company has embraced BWF as the standard specification for file exchange. The new system is simple to implement and, once adopted, it will allow ISRC to flow through the whole production chain. We now hope that other DAW manufacturers will follow suit.”

Grint adds that ISRC is set to become the cornerstone of every aspect of digital asset management, from tracking and reporting through to royalty reporting and song identification.

“The entire music industry needs a robust and secure system for identifying tracks, and who had input into their creation, so that we can safeguard the incomes of all artists and copyright owners,” he says. “Ultimately, the adoption of BWF as standard will provide a cornerstone for the MPG’s Credit Where Credit is Due campaign, which aims to highlight the woeful lack of credit information within the digital domain. Our overall goal is to ensure that all music creators receive proper credit and proper payment for their work, and having an industry-standard technical solution that allows credit information to be included in the metadata is a major step forward in achieving this ambition.”

Harris Demonstrates New PR&E Studio Enhancements for Networked Audio Environments at The Radio Show

DALLAS, September 19, 2012 (The Radio Show, Hilton Anatole, Booth 604)Harris Broadcast Communications today introduces a series of user-friendly features for analog and digital studio environments at The Radio Show, giving broadcasters more tools to empower on-air, production and networking capabilities in distributed and consolidated studio architectures.

Harris introduces programmable button panels that enhance routing capabilities and protect signal destinations, as well as standard metering designs across all Harris® PR&E® studio consoles to improve ease of use. New quad-meter enhancements for its largest console line also increase confidence metering for operators monitoring several on- and off-air sources at once.

Programmable Button Panels
The new “smart,” dynamic LCD button panels give operators and producers five programmable buttons to initiate audio routes or commands to and from any location. Foremost, the panels shield the air chain and other destinations from accepting undesired audio, maximizing protection in networked studio environments. This means that an on-air operator would need to approve a “request” from another studio to introduce that audio to the program. The buttons similarly protect for remote signal contributions, allowing operators to cleanly initiate mix-minus feeds on-air.

Operators benefit further from clarity on the actual “owner” of the audio source, with rich text and unique color screens offering clear visual information about where each signal originates. This is a key differentiator from competing systems that don’t identify the origination point.

Harris now offers its new programmable button panels on PR&E® RMXdigital® consoles, the VMReact™ logic processing engine and other PR&E® VistaMax™ audio networking systems. VMReact, introduced last year at The Radio Show, is a virtual toolbox that allows studio operators and engineers to customize and automate multiple processes in networked studio environments. This includes everything from switching audio routes to creating contact closures for various events.

Uniformity and Ease of Use
Harris enhances the look and feel of its metering applications at The Radio Show, introducing a standard design for meters, clocks and timers across its RMXdigital, NetWave® and Oasis™ on-air/production consoles. Harris also introduces quad-meters for most RMXdigital consoles, allowing operators to monitor additional sources. This improves metering confidence by ensuring signal integrity for program and off-air sources, such as web streaming and network routing.

Harris is also demonstrating its recently-introduced RMXengine™, offering an on-demand mix-minus and IFB for every RMXdigital fader. The auxiliary device also enables advanced dual-console operation for sophisticated dual-anchor studio operations — bridging two consoles together in a single studio. The aforementioned new programmable button panels also bring benefits to these applications, allowing for negotiated and protected air chain control between two consoles.

FORK Xchange Suite is the Web portal into the FORK environment, fully integrating with FORK Production Server and giving broadcasters and media enterprises instant access to content when and where it’s needed — from any Internet-enabled Windows(R), Mac(R), or iOS device.

FORK Xchange Suite allows producers and editors to browse and view clips, edit and add metadata and markers, sort content, trigger FORK action scripts, and transfer media from and to multiple remote production servers. FORK Xchange Suite provides frame-accurate markers, real-time metadata synchronization, and full support — whether users are working from a desktop or an iPad(R).

Enhanced Adobe(R) Premiere(R) Pro Integration
Also at IBC2012, Primestream(R) will demonstrate the enhanced level of integration of FORK(TM) with both Adobe(R) Premiere(R) Pro and the new Adobe Creative Suite(R) 6 Production Premium on Windows(R) and Mac OS(R) X. Using a newly developed panel, Premiere Pro users are able to search and browse the FORK media asset database with speed; select clips, bins, or timelines created in the FORK Editor; and simply drag those items into a Premiere Pro project. When an edited sequence is complete, users can send the project — ready for air — to FORK or into a newsroom system placeholder.
