Lancaster, PA (May 4, 2005)–Linear Acoustic has supplied a total of 16 OctiMax 5.1 digital television audio processors to Liberty Corporation for installation at the company’s TV stations around the country. All systems are currently on-air providing multichannel audio from 2-channel material, or handling 5.1 pass-through from network feeds.
“OctiMax also provides full level control and dialog adjustment for our DTV stations,” confides Steve Smith, VP of engineering/technology for Liberty. “We had analyzed and tested many analog devices including multi-band processors. We have never found any digital audio processing equipment that could perform in both stereo-to-5.1 and original 5.1 HD TV audio applications until we discovered OctiMax. The resultant on-air audio is extremely realistic. The OctiMax even makes poor-sounding incoming 5.1 audio a pleasing experience.”
Linear Acoustic president and founder, Tim Carroll, asserts, “The Linear Acoustic OctiMax 5.1 produces a clean, consistent and appropriately dynamic audio signal that is perfect for Dolby Digital AC-3, MPEG or Windows Media encoding and transmission.”
