Jünger launches a new Codec Edition of its D*AP8 digital audio processo

This unique device has a vital role to play in today’s broadcast environment because it is the only combination of broadcast audio codec and processor on the market that can carry out real-time metadata emulation.

The D*AP8 Codec Edition incorporates a Dolby decoder as standard and with a choice of optional encoders means that broadcast engineers in post-production, DVD and DTV facilities can check the quality of Dolby Digital AC3/E-AC3 encoded audio prior to transmission. Said Peter Poers, CEO of Jünger Audio, “Without this product, it is fair to say that broadcast engineers would not be able to carry out precise real-time metadata emulation in recent build production environments and would therefore have no way of checking exactly what television audiences hear at home."

Peter Poers, CEO of Jünger Audio, says: "Following Dolby's decision in 2013 to discontinue its DP570 Multichannel Audio Tool, we are now the sole company in the world making and supplying a product that fills that gap.

Mike Babbitt, Senior Manager, Professional Support Dolby Laboratories, Inc.,says: "Dolby is happy to partner with Jünger Audio in bringing critical and innovative broadcast-enablement products to the worldwide broadcast community.Through our technical partnerships with valued partners like Jünger Audio, Dolby is continuing to enable current and next-generation broadcast and OTT workflows to provide consumers with the 'In Dolby' experience."
