TVE increases Jünger Audio presence

Spain’s national broadcaster TVE has made an investment in Jünger Audio’s loudness control technology, which it is using to normalise the audio across a number of its television channels. TVE has been using Jünger Audio technology since 2003, but during 2012 it embraced high definition broadcasting and as a result upgraded its Jünger Audio B40 and B46 processors to incorporate SDI boards, thus making them more compatible with its existing Dolby products. TVE has also invested in nine Jünger Audio frame-based C8000 systems, bringing the total number of C8000 systems in use at its broadcast facilities to 35. The new equipment is primarily being used for playout and for the editors’ rooms at TVE’s Torrespaña broadcast tower in Barcelona. A number of systems have also been installed in TVE’s production centre in San Cugat del Vallés, Barcelona. Alberto Palazón, commercial manager at Jünger Audio’s Spanish distributor ASPA, which supplied and installed the new equipment, said: “TVE initially chose Jünger Audio equipment because it was looking for a transparent processor that could normalise audio across various channels without compressing the signal or distorting the sound. Jünger Audio’s LEVEL MAGIC-based C8000 system proved to be the ideal solution as it didn’t alter the original sound of the audio in any way.” With audio coming in from many different sources, TVE also wanted a system that would make it easy to decode and encode Dolby signals and reposition its audio content into its SDI signal path.  “The Jünger Audio equipment has achieved the results they were looking for and they can now reorder audio, regardless of whether the original source was mono, stereo or 5.1 surround sound,” said Palazón. Paloma Sampedro, head of TVE’s audiovisual production unit, added: “We are very happy with the Jünger Audio C8000 systems and with the upgrades we have made to our B40 and B46
