Axon Introduces Jünger Audio’s Loudness Control For Its Synapse Control Modules at NAB 2013

Leading modular AV signal processing and control specialist Axon Digital Design is incorporating Jünger Audio’s LEVEL MAGIC™ loudness control technology into its Synapse audio and video signal processing and control modules. The result of this collaboration will be on show for the first time at NAB 2013 at the Axon booth, N.6006.

Under the terms of the new partnership, four new audio processing modules will be incorporated into Axon Synapse, thus creating a new standard in a range of modular products covering applications such as audio up-mixing and loudness control. With Jünger Audio processing on board, Axon customers can now eliminate annoying loudness variations between program segments and between programs and commercial breaks.

Axon’s Synapse is a modular system comprising multiple 19-inch frames, active hot swappable cards and (mostly) passive connector panels. It is designed to support demanding mission critical broadcast applications, especially the conversion of composite analogue video signals into HD.

Jünger Audio has developed a custom digital signal processing (DSP) board that integrates seamlessly within a standard Axon Synapse module. Building on this seamless interoperability, the two companies have jointly developed four new Synapse modules, which provide a combination of sophisticated up-mixing and loudness control capabilities within both stereo and 5.1 multi-channel audio environments.

Further extending their application versatility, these modules are available as either 3Gb/s or HD capable. The HD version offers a 3Gb/s upgrade pathway for future migration to the greater demands of 3Gb/s operations.

“Jünger Audio is well known as a pioneer in audio technology and we are delighted to have developed a close partnership with the team there,” commented Peter Schut, Chief Technology Officer at Axon. “Together, we have created a range of audio processing solutions which offer significantly new feature-sets and functionality. These innovative products will open new markets to Axon.”

Peter Pörs, Managing Director of Junger Audio, says: “Loudness control is a hot topic and there is increasing demand from broadcasters for an effective solution that can eliminate jumps in audio levels. More and more customers are demanding our LEVEL MAGIC™ process in individual hardware and software solutions because it delivers high quality audio and supports all known loudness standards including ITU, EBU and ATSC. With AXON, we have found the perfect partner to enable us to address this demand.”

Jünger Audio’s LEVEL MAGIC™ technology uses Wideband processing to control loudness and peak level, and avoid defects like breathing, pumping, and spectral changes. The processing relies on a highly sophisticated, adaptive level con¬trol algorithm.

By incorporating LEVEL MAGIC™ into its Synapse modules, Axon customers can set their desired Loudness Target, or Operating Level, and Peak Level. Once set, processing takes place automatically providing continuous loudness control, regard-less of the source of the audio.

Prism Sound Shows The New Lyra Audio Interface At Prolight + Sound 2013

European studio producers, musicians and DJs will have their first opportunity to see Prism Sound’s new Lyra family of Audio Interfaces at this year’s Prolight + Sound exhibition in Frankfurt (Hall 5.1, stand B50A).

With Lyra, Prism Sound is bringing its high performance audio technology to an even wider audience. This brand new family of interfaces is aimed at musicians, composers, project studio owners, DJs, re-mixers and other audio content producers such as radio and podcasting. It is also anticipated that high-end home audio enthusiasts will find the USB interface and stereo configuration with digital volume control an attractive package.

Based on the award-winning and critically acclaimed Orpheus interface, Lyra allows music recording professionals to access the power and sophistication of the Orpheus audio path and clock circuitry, but in a smaller package and at a much improved price point.

“Lyra connects seamlessly with both Macs and PCs via a simple USB interface,” says Graham Boswell, Sales and Marketing Director for Prism Sound. “For recording professionals who don’t need eight channels of analogue I/O, Lyra is the perfect interface because it allows them to access Prism Sound quality in a convenient package and at an affordable price.”

Prism Sound plans to launch a number of different variants of Lyra and has started the ball rolling with Lyra 1 and Lyra 2. Both incorporate new ARM Cortex-based ‘Xcore’ processor design offering class-compliant USB interfacing, plus DSP and a low latency ‘console-quality’ digital mixer for foldback monitoring. Both products also have optical SPDIF capability and Lyra 2 also supports ADAT.

Lyra 1, which retails at £1,349 plus VAT, will be of particular interest to the musician and project studio market. This unit offers two analogue input channels – one for instrument/line and one for mic/line – plus two DA output channels and optical-only digital I/O. With Lyra 1, musicians can connect a guitar and a microphone through the input channels, plug into their software mixer via a simple USB connection and start laying down basic tracks in a matter of minutes.

Lyra 2, which retails at £1,849 plus VAT, takes the concept a little further by offering two AD input channels with switchable microphone, instrument or line input modes and four DA output channels. Both optical-only digital I/O and copper S/PDIF are available on this version of Lyra, which also offers wordclock In/Out enabling synchronization with other digital devices.

Both products are ergonomically designed to look as good as they sound. The front panel has a master volume control assignable to selected output channels, while the unit’s small size – just 11 inches wide – makes it very easy to transport for musicians, producers and DJs on the road. For studio use, Prism Sound can supply dedicated rack mounts as an extra.

“We know there is a market for Lyra because our customers have been demanding this product ever since we launched Orpheus,” Graham Boswell adds. “However, we are very protective of our reputation for delivering the highest possible audio quality so we were not going to bring any product to market until we were 100% convinced that it could live up to our exacting specifications. Lyra does just that, and we are very proud to introduce it.”

Lyra will start shipping in April 2013 and will be fully supported by Prism Sound’s acclaimed technical and after-sales service staff.
