Product Details

Built upon the highly successful AERO.air™, AERO.2000™ combines air-proven loudness control, AEROMAX® audio processing, Dolby® encoding/decoding, unmatched upmixing via UPMAX® II, and extensive I/O features.

Program configurations include 5.1+2+Local plus 2+2+Local, providing support for 16 audio channels. A full-time LtRt or LoRo downmix of the main 5.1 channel program is also made available.

Professional audio metadata can be applied to AERO.2000 to minimize processing and control functions, or, traditional AEROMAX processing and industry-standard UPMAX-II upmixing can be employed.

A comprehensive TCP/IP remote control is included, providing full adjustment, ITU-R BS.1770-3 meters for all programs, return audio for remote monitoring, and an HTTP server for get/set control. Compensating video delay and dual redundant power supplies are standard.

Field-enabled options via software key include:

Dolby Digital (AC-3) and/or Dolby Digital Plus encoding for each instance, reference quality Dolby Digital (AC-3) and Dolby E decoding from any AES or SDI input signal, and Nielsen® Watermarking for audience measurement.
