Smart Audio for broadcasters10 September 2016
Here at IBC2016 Jünger Audio is demonstrating its Smart Audio concept. Smart Audio is about investing in simple, reliable and predictable equipment that can automatically deliver audio content while maintaining the high quality that consumers expect. The concept has already been adopted by a number of broadcasters, including Input Media in London and the ARD Tagesschau television prime time news service in Germany.
Peter Poers, CEO, Jünger Audio said: “In a world where resources are tight and broadcasters can’t afford to employ an entire team of audio engineers to manage sound quality at every position, Smart Audio is the future.
“The only way to ensure that viewers receive a consistent, clear audio experience is to utilise a chain of intelligent and adaptive real-time processing algorithms working together. This is what Smart Audio means: delivering high-quality sound in a very efficient way, with minimal requirement for manual control or intervention from an operator.”
Alongside intelligent and adaptive processing algorithms, the introduction of Smart Audio also allows broadcasters to choose devices that are fully interoperable with others in the broadcast environment and can seamlessly integrate with both playout automation systems and logging and monitoring processes.
“Auto-Level, Auto-Upmix, Auto-EQ, Auto-MIX, Auto-Loudness, Codec System Metadata Management – the intelligent combination of all these Jünger Audio adaptive algorithms will create the solution that delivers Smart Audio,” Poers added. “Programme loudness will also automatically match, as expected.”
