Sky Deutschland Adopts Jünger Audio's Smart Audio Concept

News Image
Sky Deutschland has become the latest broadcaster to adopt Jünger Audio’s Smart Audio concept after specifying the company's D*AP audio processing units for its new sports programming broadcast centre in Unterföhring.

Known as the Cube, Sky Deutschland's new centre is scheduled to open in 2017 and will comprise two studios of 600 m² and 250 m², and an additional new surface of 250 m² for Bundesliga coverage. There will also be rooms for direction, editing and production, as well as for continuity suites and the broadcast IT installation. When it is completed, the Cube will be one of the largest and most modern broadcast IT infrastructures for live sports production in Europe and will create more than 40 full time jobs.

Jünger Audio’s D*AP products were chosen for the installation because every device incorporates a collection of sophisticated adaptive processing algorithms that enable them to deliver a Smart Audio experience. With D*AP, broadcasters can dispense high quality sound in a very efficient manner, with minimal requirement for manual control or intervention from an operator. The processors employ the industry standard Ember+ remote protocol that allows seamless integration with an increasingly wide range of compatible equipment. They also support Audinate’s Dante digital media networking technology, which enables them to interface with Audio Over IP networks just by plugging in a single cable.

Working in conjunction with Qvest Media, which is responsible for the turnkey, technological construction of Sky Deutschland's new centre, Jünger Audio has supplied two D*AP CODEC Edition 8-channel surround processors and two D*AP FLX 8-channel surround processors, all of which have SDI and Dante interfaces. These will be used to decode Dolby® from incoming feeds so that channel shuffling and mix preconditioning can be applied to individual national feeds. In addition, Jünger Audio has supplied four D*AP TAP Edition 8-channel surround television audio processors, which will be used for loudness management and final Dolby® E encoding. The entire audio processing system is controlled by eight XAP RMI universal remote control panels.

Daniel Url, Managing Director of Qvest Media, said: "We have designed the system around Jünger Audio devices to meet Sky’s high demands on flexibility and audio quality, so Jünger Audio’s Smart Audio concept really was the system of choice for both Sky and Qvest Media. During the installation, we received excellent support from Jünger, as the system was installed in a record breaking time."
