Linear Acoustic showed its AERO.air 10-channel transmission loudness manager at the 2009 Broadcast India Convention. The unit features built-in Dolby Pulse (Dolby’s implementation of HE AAC), and Dolby Digital (AC-3) encoding. The third-generation solution is designed to deliver 5.1 channel surround sound from a stereo source while maintaining balanced signal levels between all broadcast programming.
Saving time, money and space, AERO.air allows broadcasters to install one simple, easy-to-use unit to handle complete audio processing and encoding for local, network and EAS broadcasting. Incorporating an HD/SD-SDI input, it also provides air-proven dynamics processing to allow seamless integration of local two-channel audio and network 5.1 audio.
