Amsterdam (August 13, 2015)—Linear Acoustic will launch its AERO.10 DTV audio processor at IBC 2015.
“The AERO.10 was designed for any cost-sensitive application that requires uncompromising audio processing features like loudness control and logging,” says Chris Shaw, VP of global sales. “Linear Acoustic Intelligent Dynamics with Advanced ITU (AI) Limiter enables a simple loudness target to be set, and the AERO.10 does the rest to assure compliance and quality. This new product delivers the features and audio quality at a price perfect for users and applications that previously may not have been able to consider the AERO family.”
AERO.10 is an audio processor supporting up to 10 channels of PCM audio via AES, SDI or stereo analog I/O. The AERO.10 comes equipped with a processing engine identical to those in the established AERO.100/1000/2000 products and tools such as AEROMAX loudness and dynamics control, UPMAX II automatic upmixing and downmixing algorithms, along with ITU and EBU compliant loudness metering and logging. Downloadable 7.5 day rolling and event-based logs include multiple ITU-R BS.1770-3 loudness measurements as well as True Peak values.
The included TCP/IP remote application provides control and display of all AERO.10 system settings and processing parameters plus metering of loudness from a PC located anywhere with a network connection. The remote also delivers up to 5.1 channels of audio, enabling users to audition signal quality anywhere link bandwidth permits. An HTTP server is included for get/set control of parameters and retrieval of status and logging information.
The AERO.10 has a nLCD front panel GUI for local control, and a headphone output is included for checking audio and adjusting processing. New with AERO.10 are +4dBu balanced stereo analog inputs and outputs, useful for analog plants or bridging between analog and digital paths.
