AERO.mobile - Audio Loudness Manager for Mobile DTV
Traditional audio processing alone cannot enable diverse audio content to be reproduced effectively on mobile and handheld devices, including content from Mobile DTV and live internet streaming.
Mobile viewing must overcome physical constraints including small speakers and environmental issues such as background noise. Additionally, program audio can range from mono to 5.1 channels and from whispery soft to screaming loud. These factors combine to impair intelligibility, making viewing tedious and frustrating.
AERO.mobile™ solves these issues by employing specialized processing algorithms to ensure the audio comes through with exceptional clarity in these challenging environments.
The rugged 1RU AERO.mobile is intended to be installed directly before the mobile audio encoder in either the AES or SDI paths.
Failover bypass relays are provided to ensure continuous service in the unlikely event of failure, while a bright LED display, rotary encoder, and four control keys provide straightforward menu navigation and adjustment.
Linear Acoustic AEROMAX® loudness and dynamics control with Mobilizer™ technology for up to two programs
Input downmixer supports 5.1 and stereo sources
5.1+2 (downmix plus alternate channel), 5.1+2 (downmix with Mobilizer plus alternate channel), or 2+2 (dual stereo with dual Mobilizer) channel configurations.
Six factory presets for standard programming and sports
Automatic, metadata, or GPI control
AES and HD/SDI-SDI I/O
Linear Acoustic Mobilizer technology was developed based on extensive research into normal and impaired hearing in both quiet and noisy environments. By using technology from the renowned CrowdControl™ algorithm to isolate dialog elements and combining new multiband techniques designed to preserve critical audio cues, program intelligibility is enhanced without the need for heavy handed processing. Mobilizer also provides pre-conditioning for the low bit rate HE AAC Mobile DTV audio encoder to maximize its performance at even the lowest rates.
