Jünger Audio adding to Level Magic processor range3 August 2011
Audio loudness and dynamics specialist Jünger Audio will use IBC as a platform to launch two powerful new additions to its range of Level Magic processors.
These new units form part of an expanding family of products that began with the launch of the T*AP TV Audio Processor at NAB 2010.
The first unit, the D*AP LM2, is a two-channel digital audio processor incorporating version II of Jünger Audio’s Level Magic algorithm, which is compliant with all current broadcast audio loudness recommendations including ITU, EBU R128 and ATSC A/85.
Designed as a successor to Jünger Audio’s D06 unit, the D*AP LM2 offers a powerful combination of dynamics and loudness control, making it suitable for a wide range of applications including television, radio, music production and PA.
The D*AP LM2 is capable of handling both analogue and digital (AES/EBU) audio and features an automatic input switchover with parallel output formats. Jünger Audio’s Adaptive Dynamics comes as standard, allowing customers to incorporate additional processing blocks such as filters, compressors, expanders and the proprietary Spectral Signature processor.
Jünger Audio’s second new product for IBC – and the third in the new *AP family – is the D*AP LM4, a four-channel digital audio processor that also incorporates Level Magic II. D*AP LM4 is aimed at television broadcasters and video production and post-production companies that need to control audio loudness while creating and editing broadcast content.
Similar in concept to the Jünger Audio B46 processor, which it will ultimately replace, the D*AP LM4 also features onboard AES/EBU digital I/O, along with optional 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O or analogue I/O. This combination of formats is likely to open up many new markets for the unit, particularly among customers who are only working in the analogue domain.
Jünger Audio will also be showing the founder member of the *AP family, the T*AP TV Audio Processor. Primarily designed for TV playout facilities, this processor made its operational debut at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
