Jünger Spotlights “Smart Audio” Solutions

At the 2107 NAB Show Jünger Audio will exhibit a number of products that facilitate effective, high quality and automated audio production in live broadcast and production environments.

The company’s “Smart Audio” theme at NAB is tailored to video professionals looking for complementary, reliable and future-proofed equipment that can be used to deliver audio content, in automated as well as non-automated workflows, while continuously maintaining the high quality that viewers have come to expect.

Alongside intelligent and adaptive processing algorithms, the introduction of Smart Audio also allows broadcasters to choose devices that are fully interoperable with others in the broadcast environment and can seamlessly integrate with both playout automation systems and logging and monitoring processes.

“Today everybody expects and requires high quality digital media at all times,” said Peter Poers, CEO of Jünger Audio. “However, broadcasters are reluctant to invest resources on simply improving audio quality. The Smart Audio concept not only guarantees a predictable, high-quality performance, but also offers a remarkable increase in efficiency for the production and post-production processes.

He said that customers using Jünger Audio’s Smart Audio adaptive algorithms can deliver high quality sound in a very efficient way with minimal requirement for manual control or intervention from an operator.

This, Poers, said, “is of interest not only for broadcast applications, but also for new services like remote production and live streaming. These, too, will benefit from Smart Production Technologies in general and from Jünger Audio Smart Audio as dedicated part of this trend.” 

Jünger Audio’s Universal Remote Control Panel X*AP RM1 provides users with hands-on control instead of web-based interfaces.

Also in its NAB Exhibit booth, Jünger Audio will show its full range of loudness control and audio processing solutions and demonstrate each processor’s capabilities via web server technologies and specific user interfaces on a standard computer.

The company will also highlight its full range of D*AP products, all of which incorporate a collection of adaptive processing algorithms. They also employ the industry standard Ember+ remote protocol that allows seamless integration with an increasingly wide range of compatible equipment. The range includes natural sounding products for loudness control, audio monitoring, audio conditioning & metadata management and Dolby decoding, encoding and transcoding.

Among them are the D*AP8 MAP Edition surround monitoring audio processor; the D*AP8 Codec Edition processor that provides a viable replacement for any discontinued legacy Dolby hardware processors; the D*AP4 VAP Edition two channel voice audio processor and the flagship D*AP8 TAP Edition television audio processor, which ensures consistency of loudness and sonic “character” across multiple programme sources.

In addition to its own booth in the North Hall, Jünger Audio products will be exhibited on the booth of its U.S. distributor Independent Audio, in the Central Hall (C3036), where the focus will be on audio processor hardware.

Fraser Jones, president of Independent Audio, said Jünger’s renowned audio processors are “a perfect fit for our existing product mix, which includes many high end professional audio product lines such as Cedar, Sonifex, Merging Technologies, Thermionic Culture and Audio Developments.”
