Italy’s Cinevideo Equips New OB Van With Jünger Audio Loudness Control

Cinevideo, an Italian broadcast service provider, has invested in two Jünger Audio D*AP 8 MAP Edition audio processors for its new Dolphin 7.0 flagship 4K OB vehicle, which was officially launched at IBC 2017.

Dolphin 7.0 is a 24-camera, fully 4K-capable vehicle with the ability to support full 12G workflows. Designed as a showcase for cutting edge OB technologies, it will be used for major live sports events.

Supplied by Jünger Audio’s Italian distributor Video Progetti, Jünger’s audio processors combine an audio monitor controller and a loudness measurement device in one unit, thus providing comprehensive quality control and loudness monitoring for anyone working in a production or broadcast environment.

Designed for quality checking surround (5.1) and/or stereo programs, D*AP 8 MAP processors can be used for live monitoring and to ensure compliance with all government regulations on loudness. Their eight speaker outputs allow for A/B checking of stereo compatibility of a surround downmix through alternative speakers, as well as via L/R front speakers.

Jünger’s MAP processors feature a built-in Dolby Metadata generator and an optional Dolby decoder that allows users to decode Dolby-E, Dolby-D (AC-3) and Dolby Digital plus (E-AC-3).

Jünger Audio’s MAP also features a built-in Dolby Metadata generator and an optional Dolby decoder that allows users to decode Dolby-E, Dolby-D (AC-3) and Dolby Digital plus (E-AC-3).

Roberto Buonomo, Technical Manager, Cinevideo, said they chose Jünger Audio D*AP 8 MAP units because they provide numerous features, such as HD-SDI input and metadata creation, as well as supporting optional boards such as MADI and DANTE.

“Alongside loudness monitoring and HD-SDI de-embedding, their main advantage is that, when we produce Dolby encoded material, we can listen to our audio and hear exactly what we are delivering to our customers,” said Buonomo.

Cinvevideo has installed one D*AP 8 MAP unit in each of Dolphin 7.0’s audio control rooms. The flexibility of MAP means that Cinevideo engineers can perform loudness measurements over a long run or over a fraction of a program, or both, thus ensuring that its broadcasts comply with loudness regulations. Measurements can either be triggered by automation systems or, as in the case remote panel, which is located near the truck’s Calrec live audio mixing console.
