Appear TV's new Audio Levelling system has been named an IABM Design Awards Finalist 2009, ahead of its IBC debut.
The Appear TV Audio Levelling solution has been designed to enable operators to adjust the audio levels of both radio and TV channels from different studios and processed by different encoders. In today's TV environment, in which many operators have hundreds of channels, fixing this problem without such a solution would be incredibly difficult, expensive and time consuming.
The IABM Awards for Design & Innovation recognise innovative products that offer significant solutions or opportunities within the broadcast and media technology industry. There are five awards in total: the highly acclaimed Peter Wayne Award and four further Awards for Excellence. The winners of the IABM Awards for Excellence and the IABM Peter Wayne Award for Design & Innovation will be announced at an IABM reception at IBC on Saturday 12th September.
"We have received a really positive response to our Audio Levelling solution from the industry because it provides fantastic functionality for a common problem that operators are keen to solve," said Carl Walter Holst, CEO, Appear TV. "We're extremely pleased to have been named as an IABM Design Awards Finalist, which is testament to the efforts of the whole team at Appear TV and our philosophy of designing products that can provide real solutions for today's operators. We're looking forward to meeting IBC visitors in Amsterdam to discuss and demonstrate the benefits of our solution."
Appear TV's Audio Levelling solution enables operators to individually, within the MPEG domain, adjust the audio level of each channel. It has a capacity of up to 250 channels and an Appear TV headend can take more than one Audio Levelling module, so that operators can cater for hundreds of channels.
