Lancaster, PA (February 2, 2010)--Univision Television Group (UTG) has selected the Linear Acoustic AERO.air 5.1 for its audio processing solution.
The Linear Acoustic AERO.air 5.1 can handle embedded HD/SDI audio, mobile handheld, Dolby AC-3 and E decoding/encoding technologies, and provide built-in Dolby AC-3 encode, as well as Nielsen encoding to address code recovery issues.
Ira Goldstone, vice president of engineering, UTG, commented, "We like the USB upgradeability of the AERO.air. Future features are easily integrated, and Univision can adapt on the fly to coming technologies as required. We needed a processor that would be the right choice today and in two years."
"Some of the biggest networks across the country have chosen Linear Acoustic products to solve their audio issues, and we are pleased that Univision has selected our AERO.air for its stations," says Christina Carroll, Linear Acoustic senior vice president of global sales. "Bad audio hurts ratings--it's as simple as that. Our AERO.air with built-in Dolby Digital AC-3 encoding is designed to help networks just like Univision ensure that they provide their audiences with the best listening experience to complement their wide variety of programming."
