AERO.100™ combines proven Linear Acoustic® AEROMAX® processing, UPMAX® II upmixing/downmixing, Dolby® encoding/decoding, BS.1770 loudness metering, and convenient TCP/IP remote control in an affordable, 1RU package, making it the ideal all-in-one solution for over the air, over the top, or mobile broadcasting.
In its base configuration, AERO.100 handles up to 10 channels of baseband, AES, or SDI audio in a 5.1+2+Local configuration and includes standard decoding for Dolby Digital (AC-3) and Dolby E signals, Dolby Digital (AC-3) encoding, and Nielsen® Watermarking for audience measurement.
Optionally, AERO.100 can be configured to include an additional second instance in either a 5.1+2+Local configuration with the same Dolby and Nielsen features as the first instance, with a 2+2+Local instance with Dolby coding and Nielsen Watermarking, or with a 2+2+Local instance without Dolby or Nielsen. It is also available in a 5.1+2+Local configuration with no Dolby or Nielen coding whatsoever.
A new Advanced ITU (AI) Limiter enables a loudness target to be set, leaving AERO.100 to do the rest to assure compliance and quality.
AERO.100 also includes Linear Acoustic Intelligent Dynamics™ (ID), a patented hybrid of single-ended and metadata control, offering an infinitely and automatically adjustable balance between permanent and reversible processing and the overall amount of control - all driven by the content itself. Compliant, high-quality content is preserved while unknown content is adjusted for compliance. The result: Consistently pleasing audio delivered to consumers.
A comprehensive TCP/IP remote control is included, providing control over all system settings, processing and coding activity, and audio loudness measurements, plus status reports for physical I/O and system, power supply, and environmental health. The remote application also delivers remote audio to audition signal quality anywhere link bandwidth permits.
An http server is included for simple get/set control and retrieval of metering logs.
