French facilities house CMC Laboratories has recently bought four T*AP Television Audio Processor units from German dynamics processing manufacturer Jünger Audio. Three T*APs, which were supplied by Jünger Audio’s French distributor 44.1, were bought for the CMC video laboratories and one for the audio mixing operation. “Our Jünger Audio T*AP units are being used to create broadcast tapes, which, in France, now need to be compliant with the EBU’s R128 loudness recommendation,” explained Daniel Almeida (pictured right), senior maintenance technician at MonalSystem. “We make a large number of broadcast tapes using VTRs and we needed a realtime and high quality solution for the audio loudness normalisation according to the R128 recommendation.” Jünger Audio’s audio loudness systems support all known loudness standards including ITU, EBU and ATSC. They use the company’s proprietary LEVEL MAGIC technology, which is based on a simultaneous combination of an AGC, a transient processor for fast changes, and a ‘look ahead’ peak limiter for continuous unattended control of any programme material, regardless of its original source. “We also like the ability to configure the unit via a web interface and the remote control,” said Almeida. “The remote control was necessary for the seamless integration of the hardware into our working environment, and we appreciate the realtime display of the R128 measurements. It is very important for us to have a physical interface for our technicians; they can set-up the hardware with hotkeys and check the result of the loudness normalisation at the end of a job.” www.junger-audio.com
