LQ-1000

Lq1000_Front_Carousel

Accepting up to 8 channels of baseband or Dolby® Digital (AC-3) encoded audio via AES or HD/SD-SDI I/O, LQ-1000 provides simultaneous LKFS loudness measurement for two independent programs (5.1+2) per ITU-R BS.1770-3 and EBU R128 standards. Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby E decoding is optionally available.

The vibrant front-panel display features a large, color-coded numeric loudness value for the primary 5.1-channel program or secondary 2-channel program. The secondary meter can also be used to display loudness values for an internally created Lo/Ro or Lt/Rt downmix.

Additional bar graph meters with adjustable integration times, a loudness histogram to track loudness trends, True Peak readings, and dialnorm and coding information is also displayed.

Additionally, LQ-1000 provides comprehensive logging to a USB or network drive allowing stations to keep records of their loudness measurements.

A rear-panel VGA output allows information to be viewed on an external monitor or multi-viewer.

Handling up to 10 channels of PCM audio via AES, SDI, or analog stereo I/O, the Linear Acoustic AERO.10 offers all-inclusive audio processing for over the air, over the top, and mobile television broadcast. The Linear Acoustic Advanced ITU (AI) Limiter enables a simple loudness target to be set, and the AERO.10 does the rest to assure compliance and quality.

AERO.100™

Aero100_Front_Carousel

Handling up to 16 channels of baseband or encoded audio via AES (10 channels) or HD/SD-SDI (16 channels) I/O, the Linear Acoustic AERO.100 offers all-inclusive AEROMAX® audio processing, upmixing, encoding, and metering for over the air, over the top, and mobile television broadcasts in a compact 1RU chassis.

Base configuration includes a single processing instance in a 5.1+2+2 channel configuration, with or without Dolby® encoding and Nielsen® Watermark encoding. A second processing instance (5.1+2+2 or 2+2+2) with or without the Dolby and Nielsen options can be enabled at any time by simply entering a factory provided key.

Local audio insertion, SAP/DVS with downmix replacement, full-time downmix, and support for Audio Description (warble tone) is provided.

Failover bypass relays on all I/O maintain signal continuity and dual auto-ranging power supplies enable redundancy and worldwide compatibility.

Designed and built in the USA, the lightweight and rugged 1RU AERO.100 is a solid investment in performance and flexibility.

AERO.2000™

 

Aero2000_Front_Carousel

The Linear Acoustic AERO.2000™ provides all of the features and functionality of the AERO.100, but takes things a step further. Handling up to 16 channels of baseband or encoded audio via both AES or HD/SDSDI I/O, it offers AEROMAX® audio processing, upmixing, encoding, and metering for over the air, over the top, and mobile television broadcasts in a 2RU chassis with a front panel that includes a full-color screen, controls, and headphone output.

Base configuration includes a single processing instance in a 5.1+2+2 channel configuration, with or without Dolby® encoding and Nielsen® Watermark encoding. A second processing instance (5.1+2+2 or 2+2+2) with or without the Dolby and Nielsen options can be enabled at any time by simply entering a factory provided key.

Local audio insertion, SAP/DVS with downmix replacement, full-time downmix, and support for Audio Description (warble tone) is provided.

Failover bypass relays on all I/O maintain signal continuity and dual auto-ranging power supplies enable redundancy and worldwide compatibility.

Designed and built in the USA, the 2RU AERO.2000 combines performance, flexibility and convenience.

A full color front panel screen with rotary navigation cluster and headphone output allow for local set-up and adjustment.

SDI xNode

SDIxNode_Front_Carousel

The SDI xNode builds upon the success of the popular Axia xNode series of interfaces by bridging HD/SD-SDI audio channels into the Livewire+ and AES-67 Audio over IP domain. Audio from dual HD/SD-SDI inputs is available to the AoIP network, or can be shuffled and re-embedded into the SDI outputs. Compensating video delay for each SDI input maintains audio/video sync.

For the first time, facilities can now take advantage of fully distributed I/O and Audio over IP for HD/SD-SDI signals to allow incredibly flexible audio routing and distribution. Combine with AERO.soft and other types of xNodes as necessary (AES, analog) for a completely distributed, scalable, high-density, and future-resistant audio processing solution.

UPMAX v4

 

UpMaxV4_Front_Carousel

Drawing upon the success of its predecessors in the UPMAX® line, this compact, lightweight, and rugged unit produces stunning 5.1 channel audio from two-channel sources and is perfectly suited for OB trucks and post-production facilities.

Offering AES and auto-sensing HD/SD-SDI I/O, the UPMAX v4 combines the renowned UPMAX® upmixing/downmixing algorithm with AutoMAX-II™ auto-detection for seamless transitions between stereo and native surround input sources, producing an upmix that is completely downmix compatible.

The UPMAX v4 comes standard with a built-in ITU loudness meter, dual power supplies, internal relay bypass, SNMP monitoring, and a monitor section with calibration tones and pink noise, eight +4dBu balanced analog outputs, and volume, mute, and return to reference control.

A remote volume and GPI I/O control is optional.

MT2000™

MT2000_Front_Carousel

 

Next Generation PCM and Dolby® Encoded Audio Generation and Analysis. The Linear Acoustic MT2000 Multichannel Bitstream Analyzer is an efficient tool for end-to-end system testing and is the ideal next generation replacement for the original Dolby® DM100.

The Linear Acoustic MT2000 Bitstream Analyzer is a portable, handheld diagnostic tool that can monitor and generate Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby E, and PCM bitstreams. With its built-in test-signal generator, the MT2000 allows audio system integrators and service engineers to quickly monitor and check the integrity and composition of Dolby encoded and PCM signals routed through production, broadcast, cable, and satellite facilities, or even a home theater system.

The Linear Acoustic MT2000 accepts signals via AES, TOSLINK™ Optical, HD/SD-SDI, DVB-ASI, and MADI I/O plus HDMI in. The unit identifies the format of the selected input signal and activates the appropriate built-in decoder. Monitoring capabilities include error detection at the AES3 layer and within the coded audio layers, including SMPTE 337 formatting information and Dolby E guard band position.
