Jünger Audio Expands *AP Family Of Audio Processors For IBC 2011

Audio loudness and dynamics specialist Jünger Audio is using the IBC platform to launch two powerful new additions to its range of LEVEL MAGIC processors.
These new units form part of an expanding family of products that began with the launch of the award-winning T*AP Audio Processor at NAB 2010.
The first unit, the D*AP LM2 is a two-channel Digital Audio Processor incorporating Version II of Jünger Audio's renowned LEVEL MAGIC algorithm, which is compliant with all current broadcast audio loudness recommendations including ITU, EBU R128 and ATSC A/85.
Designed as a successor to Jünger Audio's groundbreaking D06 unit, the D*AP LM2 offers a powerful combination of dynamics and loudness control, making it suitable for a wide range of applications including television, radio, music production and PA.
The D*AP LM2 is capable of handling both analogue and digital (AES/EBU) audio and features an automatic input switchover with parallel output formats. Jünger Audio's Adaptive Dynamics come as standard, allowing customers to incorporate additional processing blocks such as filters, compressors, expanders and the recently introduced proprietary Spectral Signature processor. This remarkable proprietary technology gives TV and radio broadcasters the ability to create a signature mask as a template so that they can recreate the same atmosphere and dynamics on subsequent audio content.
In keeping with the T*AP TV Audio Processor, the 19" D*AP LM2 fits neatly into a rack and is controllable through a newly designed front panel or via a web-based interface. It comes with a power fail bypass as standard for additional operation security.
Jünger Audio's second new product for IBC - and the third in the *AP family - is the D*AP LM4, a four-channel Digital Audio Processor that also incorporates LEVEL MAGIC II.
D*AP LM4 is aimed at television broadcasters and video production and post production companies that need to control audio loudness while creating and editing broadcast content.
Similar in concept to the hugely popular Jünger Audio B46 processor, which it will ultimately replace, the D*AP LM4 also features onboard AES/EBU digital I/O, along with optional 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O or analogue I/O. This combination of formats is likely to open up so many new markets for the unit, particularly amongst customers who are only working in the analogue domain. Whatever format the customer chooses, all I/Os come with power fail bypass to ensure operational security. Once again, control of this 19" rack-mountable unit is via a smart new front panel or via a Web interface for those who wish to operate it remotely.
At IBC 2011, Jünger Audio will also be showing the founder member of the *AP family, the T*AP TV Audio Processor, which made its operational debut earlier this year at the Eurovision Song Contest. Primarily designed for TV playout facilities, the device fulfils the quality requirements set by major broadcasters around the world by providing Loudness control, Upmix and surround sound processing for up to eight channels of audio (8x1, 4x2 or 6+2).
T*AP focuses on automatic and adaptive loudness control using Jünger Audio's LEVEL MAGIC II algorithm and also offers Spectral Signature as standard, enabling broadcasters to dynamically equalise and 'colour' their sound in a much easier manner than can be achieved with a traditional multi-band sound processor. Optional Dolby Decoding and Encoding (D, D+ or Pulse), as well as metadata management, are also provided along with 5.1 Downmix and Jünger Audio's 5.1 UPMIX circuit, which has been upgraded to deliver greatly improved performance and a range of new settings.
Jünger Audio will be exhibiting in Hall 2 at the RAI Convention Centre, Stand C49.
