NAB 2011: Linear Acoustic To Unveil Slimmer, Lighter AERO.air
Linear Acoustic will introduce the new slimmer, lighter 2RU AERO.air — Transmission Audio/Loudness Manager — at the 2011 NAB Show.
“More features and less rack space were the primary goals for the new AERO.air,” says Tim Carroll, founder of Linear Acoustic. “Essentially, it’s the same proven technology broadcasters and their viewers continue to rely on for loudness control and legal compliance — only now more efficient and cost-effective.”
The Linear Acoustic signature AERO.air continues to solve the newly regulated “commercial loudness problem” with added features in a smaller, lighter 2RU chassis. Many optional upgrades on last year’s model are now standard features. HD/SD- SDI I/O allows for de-embedding and re-embedding up to 16 channels of audio plus SMPTE 2020 (VANC) metadata. UPMAX-II provides a more spacious and stable 5.1 upmix from a stereo source. CrowdControl ensures dialogue is preserved even in rich stereo mixes.
