Quincy, IL (September 6, 2005)–Broadcast Electronics (BE) announced a new audio capture and archiving module for its AudioVAULT digital audio system, a leading studio system with an installed base of thousands of radio stations worldwide.
“This new introduction is a continuation of our support of the AudioVAULT platform now at thousands of stations across the globe. AVLogger will increase workflow efficiencies for these stations, and also provide a much easier and more reliable method of archiving and reviewing audio,” said Neil Glassman, BE vice president strategic marketing.
AVLogger is one of several modules integrated into BE’s AudioVAULT, now at version 9.0 with enhanced network scalability for single-workstation applications or wide area networks (WANs). AudioVAULT is being used for live-assist, full automation and satellite operation and comes with a complete scheduling and production software suite for multi-track editing, music rotation and ad insertion.
Adding audio capture and archiving functions to the system will enhance studio workflow for long-term program storage and short-term airchecks. AVLogger is capable of recording multiple audio feeds from a wide range of sources at a variety of bitrates, and provides file markers for logging events such as the opening or closing of a microphone.
AVLogger can be configured to record multiple sources at once, or record audio inputs independently in order to capture left and right channels separately at differing bitrates.
A simple timeline interface and bookmark and event toggle offer broadcasters easy navigation to archived audio, which can be played back over a network or Internet connection. The reasonably priced AVLogger module can be integrated with any AudioVAULT system in the field, or can be purchased as a standalone application.
