Mountlake Terrace, WA (April 15, 2004)–Symetrix is showcasing the 6100 Broadcast Audio Profanity Delay at NAB 2004 in Las Vegas next week. The entire Symetrix AirTools product line addresses the new and demanding requirements of broadcast and streaming media.
“We at Symetrix realize that broadcasters in the 21st century must cope with neoteric technology and an evolving audience,” noted Jim Latimer, director of sales for Symetrix and Lucid Audio. “We specifically engineered our AirTools products to serve both the traditional needs of ‘terrestrial’ radio and TV broadcasters and the unique needs of Internet and satellite broadcasters. Our quarter-century of experience and cutting-edge research and development dovetail to put AirTools years ahead of the curve.”
The 6100 Broadcast Audio Delay is the first product offered in the AirTools family. Building on the legacy and success of its predecessor, the Symetrix 610 Broadcast Audio Delay, the 6100 offers the same ease of use and simple user controls coupled with major enhancements and new features.
The 6100 is a 24-bit digital delay unit designed for live broadcast that prevents profanity or unwanted comments from reaching the airwaves. As the program begins, the 6100 gradually and unobtrusively delays, or “stretches out”, the program until up to 20 seconds of full-bandwidth stereo audio is stored in memory. Users prevent offensive material from being broadcast by pressing the Dump Profanity button, clearing the memory. The 6100 then automatically begins to stretch (time expand) the program audio until the full delay is once again attained.
