Berlin, Germany (June 23, 2010)–Philippines-based television network Associated Broadcasting Company (TV5) has installed Jünger Audio’s Level Magic technology.
Currently owned by MediaQuest Holdings Inc., a subsidiary of Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company, TV5 has recently undergone a complete re-branding, which has resulted in a substantially increased audience share. It now has more than 11 percent of the market, making it the third largest station in the Philippines.
Although most of TV5’s output goes through terrestrial transmission, the broadcaster also transmits through different cable operators in the country, with several relay stations in different major cities in the archipelago.
In order to level out these audio transmissions, TV5’s engineers specified a Jünger Audio C8000 Level Magic system, which was supplied by Conversance Systems Network Solutions Inc., via Jünger Audio Asia.
Ed Castillo, director of engineering, says, “We have installed it in our Technical Operations Centre, after the playout server and before distribution. It has made a dramatic change to our audio output and its dynamic processing has really impressed our engineers because it gives such a quick response.”
Castillo adds that TV5 is so impressed with the results it has achieved with Jünger Audio’s Level Magic technology that it plans to invest in more units in the future. “Level Magic has made a noticeable difference to our audio quality and we are looking forward to making this equipment part of the ongoing expansion and improvement of our system,” he says.
TV5’s main facilities and transmitter are located in Quezon City, from where it delivers locally produced news, public affairs and entertainment programs throughout the country. The network is aiming to expand dramatically over the next year to cover more Filipino viewers, not only in the country but also the Filipino communities in the Middle East, United States and Europe.
