Jünger Audio Adds More Features To D*AP8 Monitoring Audio Processor

News Image
Jünger Audio has added a variety of new features and functionalities to its D*AP8 Monitoring Audio Processor (MAP) with its latest firmware upgrade.

The new Firmware (v3.0) delivers a much easier to use interface and improved alarm functionality so that broadcast engineers are alerted sooner if measurements fall outside permitted ranges.

Firmware version 3.0 also emphasises the MAP's role as a substitute for DP570 because, when fitted with a Dolby® decoder and encoder, it is the only device on the market capable of covering a full Dolby® workflow. Just one MAP can replace up to seven no longer available Dolby® processors in one easy to operate unit.

Jünger Audio's MAP combines an audio monitor controller and loudness measurement device and is designed for quality checking surround (5.1) and/or stereo programmes. A built-in Dolby® Metadata generator and an optional Dolby® decoder allow users to decode Dolby-E, Dolby-D (AC-3) and Dolby Digital plus (E-AC-3). It can also be used for live monitoring and to ensure compliance with today's standards and regulations (ITU 1770-3, ATSC A/85 or EBU R128).

Aimed at providing comprehensive quality control and loudness monitoring for anyone working in a production or broadcast environment, Jünger Audio's MAP is the only Loudness processor on the market capable of offering real-time metadata emulation as standard. Its new user interface now combines loudness and dialnorm measurement, metadata emulation and setup and monitor control on one web page. It is optimised for mouse or touch operation and can also be used as a day-to-day interface, for example on a tablet computer. This significantly simplifies workflows, especially for those familiar with Dolby® DP570/LM100 environments.

Firmware v3.0 also delivers improvements to MAP's alarm functionality as it now offers an independent alarm for the main measurement and additional alarms for all four log-ports, each of which monitor up to eight channels independently from the actual signal processing in the device. The alarms alert the operator when pre-set loudness thresholds are exceeded, and these signals can be delivered by SNMP and documented in the optional J*AM logging software. Alarms can also be used to trigger changes in signal processing, rerouting of channels or just switching notification lights in the facility.

The D*AP8 MAP Edition is now equipped with the latest drivers for Dolby®'s current codec option board CAT1100 running a Dolby® D/D+ encoder. 

The new functionality is available to all D*AP8 MAP Edition users free of charge. The firmware can be downloaded now from Jünger Audio's website.

The upgrade, along with the associated new features, will be demonstrated at IBC 2018 on booth 10.A49.
