Broadcast Audio Processor solves Nielsen® Watermarking and Dolby® encoding challenges!
In a nutshell
In today’s distribution systems, you need to be able to adapt to various audio distribution requirements for domestic and international networks. The key elements: audio-shuffling, audio pre-processing, Nielsen® Watermarking and Dolby® encoding must be configurable and able to accommodate any workflow requirement. This includes one to one and one to many relationships between processing components. Careful audio pre-processing to maintain the BS-1770 standard and the creation of metadata describing loudness parameters is also critical for optimum Dolby® encoding in today’s workflows and is mandatory for future encoding workflows. An automatic hardware bypass is another vital component to provide peace of mind in case of a hardware malfunction or a power disaster. The comprehensive user interface is a must for day-to-day operation and initial configuration. Combined with the Dashboard™, the Broadcast Audio Processor simplifies audio workflows and brings ease-of-use to the critical component of the modern broadcasting architecture.
