Orban Highlights New Audio Processing Gear

Orban, a provider of audio processing solutions for AM, FM, TV, and Internet broadcasting released multiple new products at the 2016 NAB Show.

Highlighted new products at NAB included Orban's new Optimod-FM 8700, the innovative Optimod-FM 5501e PCIe card, Optimod-TV 8685 for 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound, and the latest version of the Optimod-PCn 1600 for streaming audio.

The 8700 expands Orban’s existing 8600 platform by adding AES67-compliant audio-over-IP connectivity, dual-redundant hot-swappable power supplies, a 192 kHz AES3 digital composite output, and a program-adaptive sub-harmonic synthesizer that generates punchy bass from bass-deficient program material.

Running natively on Windows computers, the 1600 is now available for surround processing in addition to stereo and mono. Features include parallel compression, more versatile filtering and equalization, and dynamic noise reduction with different settings for speech and music.
