Berlin, Germany (March 18, 2013)—TVN, Chile’s main broadcaster, has installed Jünger Audio’s T*AP processor on its international channel to comply with global loudness regulations.
Although Chile has no loudness legislation, TVN has an international channel, TV Chile, that is broadcast around the world via satellite and therefore needs to comply with the regulations in place in various countries, including the USA.
Mauricio Rojo, TVN’s deputy manager of engineering, was charged with the task of finding a loudness control solution. “We already had a loudness processor from another manufacture but we wanted something that was more flexible in the final audio chain and has a sophisticated algorithm that could deliver very high quality audio,” Rojo explains. “Our international channel is available in Europe, all the Americas and Oceania so it was important that our broadcasts complied with the legislation in place in those territories,” Rojo says. “T*AP’s compliance with all international standards and regulations [ITU 1770/1/2/3, ATSC A85 or EBU R128] was a key point in our final decision making.”
TVN has installed one T*AP processor on TV Chile’s transmission chain and will be installing its second T*AP on TVN’s main transmission chain soon. Intervideo IngenierÌa y Telecomunicaciones Ltda., Jünger Audio’s distributor in Chile, supplied the units.
