Loudness management solution to be demoed at IBC25 August 2011
A new partnership between Cobalt Digital and Linear Acoustic is said to have resulted in the world’s first non-destructive transport stream loudness measurement and management solution. Demonstrations of the new technology will take place on both companies’ stands at IBC next month.
This technology, say Cobalt Digital and Linear Acoustic, will provide the answer to cost-effective, multi-channel loudness management within the openGear frame and via standalone products.
In a joint statement, Tim Carroll, founder of Linear Acoustic, and Kevin Moore (pictured), Cobalt Digital’s vp of engineering, commented: “The technology partnership between Linear Acoustic and Cobalt Digital is resulting in a true end-to-end solution for loudness measurement and control in the transport stream domain (MPEG over IP – MPEG over ASI). Uniquely, the patent-pending technologies enable control of audio loudness to be accomplished in a completely non-destructive and selectively reversible manner.
“Unlike any other system or technology available today, loudness is controlled both within and between programs and interstitials, and the original content is preserved.”
