Ross Video Manages Audio Loudness


Last Updated: April 6, 2011 5:29 pm GMT
(Iroquois, Ontario Canada--April 6, 2011) Ross Video is announcing Audio Loudness processing at NAB 2011 using Linear Acoustic® AEROMAX® technology.

The LDP-8242 Loudness processor actively and automatically manages and corrects loudness level changes in the audio content. The Linear Acoustic AEROMAX algorithms apply adaptive loudness correction across mutliple frequency bands to remove abrupt loudness changes while best preserving the original audio content.

“Managing audio loudness, while preserving the original audio, and maintaining audio/video timing is an ongoing challenge for many facilities,” said Eric Goodmurphy, Marketing Product Manager, openGear. ” With the introduction of the LDP-8242, using Linear Acoustic AEROMAX, loudness control just got a lot simpler.”

Loudness processing can be configured for a full 5.1 surround sound environment or set to process stereo pairs. Video processing through the LDP-8242 is fully compensated to match the audio processing delay in order to maintain proper audio to video timing.
