Linear Acoustic And Cobalt Digital Form Technology Partnership To Provide Loudness Processing Over IP
3G/HD/SD conversion gear maker Cobalt Digital, and television audio control systems maker Linear Acoustic have partnered to deliver the world’s first non-destructive transport stream loudness measurement and management solution. Demonstrations of the technology will be conducted at IBC on the Cobalt stand (8.A94) and the Linear Acoustic stand (8.D29). This technology will provide cost-effective, multichannel loudness management within the openGear frame and via stand-alone products.
“The technology partnership between Linear Acoustic and Cobalt Digital is resulting in a true end-to-end solution for loudness measurement and control in the transport stream domain (MPEG over IP – MPEG over ASI). Uniquely, the patent-pending technologies enable control of audio loudness to be accomplished in a completely non-destructive and selectively reversible manner,” said Tim Carroll, founder of Linear Acoustic. “Unlike any other system or technology available today, loudness is controlled both within and between programs and interstitials, and the original content is preserved.”
