West Berlin, NJ (December 3, 2007)–Clear Channel Radio in New York City has taken delivery of 10 ATI Digital Audio 10 ADAC-2 Simultaneous A/D, D/A and Sample Rate Converters–for its HD Radio and audio stream distribution.
Engineered by DaySequerra, the ADAC-2 supports two channels at up to 24-bit word length and 192 kHz sampling rate. Three independent audio paths through the unit allow users to convert one stereo program from analog to digital, a second stereo program from digital to analog and a third digital audio program from one sample rate to another, all simultaneously and without interaction. Audio quality exceeds requirements for the most demanding applications with A/D and D/A dynamic range in excess of 100dB, THD+Noise less than 0.001 percent and Sample Rate Converter SNR greater than 128dB.
Josh Hadden, director of engineering and IT of Clear Channel New York, chose the ADAC-2 for its versatility and advanced specifications, together with its ability to synchronize to “video black.” He will use the units for a variety of signal conversion applications, including converting digital to analog for an alternate airchain.
