Jünger Audio Shows The D*AP4 VAP Voice Processor At NAB 2014

At NAB 2014 (Booth C2134), dynamics processing specialist Jünger Audio will be showing its recently introduced D*AP4 VAP Voice Processor – a unique unit that is designed to make life easier for engineers working in radio stations, TV production voice-over studios and feature film ADR facilities.

What makes this processor so special is the inclusion of Jünger Audio’s proprietary Spectral Signature™ dynamic EQ – a totally new creative tool that offers automatic and dynamic EQ control to balance spectral differences. By analyzing incoming audio and comparing its spectrum with individually predetermined voice ‘fingerprints’, this clever unit can automatically apply dynamic EQ corrections to give a consistent sound.

For people working in TV voice over and feature film ADR, this facility is a Godsend. Imagine, for example, that you have booked an expensive and well-known actress to voice the cute little rabbit in your new children’s TV series. Over the course of the recording sessions you notice that her voice sounds different at different times of the day – maybe because she is tired, or has developed a sore throat, or has had a heavy night and smoked a lot of cigarettes. If you want your rabbit to sound exactly the same every time, how do you overcome this?

Jünger Audio’s D*AP4 VAP Voice Processor is the answer. On day one you record the actress’ best rabbit voice, and then measure it using Spectral Signature. The voice’s tonal characteristics are analyzed and recorded as a curve on a graph, which is used as a template for all future recordings. The next time your actress does her rabbit voice, the unit compares the new recording to the saved version and automatically adjusts the frequency until both voices match. Voilà! A perfect rabbit voice every time, thus saving a fortune in repeated ADR and voice over sessions, not to mention a lot of frustration on all sides.

Jünger Audio’s D*AP4 VAP Voice Processor is equally interesting to radio broadcasters who want to create an aural identity for their radio stations. By using exactly the same spectral sound management principles, the unit measures specific voice recordings and then uses these sound fingerprints as a reference. The Spectral Signature algorithm matches all subsequent live recordings to these fingerprints, thus creating a dedicated ‘station sound’.

“The D*AP4 VAP draws on our extensive experience with previous Voice Processing devices such as our popular VO2, but adds new tools and algorithms to create an easier and more efficient approach to voice processing with no compromise in sound quality,” says Peter Pörs, CEO of Jünger Audio. “We have also included processing such as HP/LP filtering, versatile dynamics section, full parametric EQ and de-essing, and made the unit really easy to use – even for non-technical radio staff such as producers and journalists.”

Jünger Audio has also provided a dedicated voice leveler combined with an auto-mixer circuit to help mixed voice programs into loudness-based broadcasting on the fly. Using the optional SDI I/O card automated voice over for SDI embedded audio becomes an attractive feature of the D*AP4 VAP.

Available as either an insert into a mixing desk or as a stand-alone unit, D*AP4 VAP offers interfaces that allow integration in existing environments via an AES insert. The unit can also be used with an optional analogue board that adds two high quality mic-preamps.

The Music Producers Guild Introduces Mastering Engineers To Broadcast WAV

As the music industry prepares to adopt the Broadcast WAV file format as the best means of embedding ISRC data into future recordings, the Music Producers Guild is hosting an event to highlight the importance of this initiative and give recording professionals the information they need to make it a success.

The event, which is primarily aimed at Mastering engineers, will take place at the Hospital Club in London on the evening of April 9th, 2014. It is sponsored by digital audio workstation manufacturers Magix/Sequioa, Merging/Pyramix and Prism Sound/SADiE, all of whom have recently announced their support for the initiative by backing file exchange between their systems.

Headed by Alchemy Mastering’s Barry Grint, the MPG has led a strident campaign to get Broadcast WAV accepted by the music industry in place of ordinary WAV files, which don’t contain a method for embedding ISRC information. Their efforts have been successful as the boards of both the BPI and AIM have now recommended to their members that this new format be adopted.

“Our event on April 9th is the only opportunity Mastering engineers will have to understand and prepare for this format change,” Barry Grint explains. “Each of our DAW sponsors will demonstrate how the ISRC embedding process fits within their workflow, and how they are working together to ensure seamless exchange of the data between all of the workstations. This is a massive step forward for the industry and we really hope that Mastering engineers and other recording professionals who are interested in ISRC will take the opportunity to come along and learn more.”

Grint adds that the importance of ISRC cannot be understated. ISRC, which stands for International Standard Recording Code, is uniquely allocated to every song recorded. These codes are then registered with royalty payment agencies, thus ensuring that recording artists and copyright holders are properly remunerated for their work when it is played on radio or TV.

Broadcast WAV, the professional WAV format created by the European Broadcasting Union, can carry ISRC information and this is why MPG is so keen to see is adopted by as the de-facto standard for music interchange in the production process.

“The inclusion of ISRC information will remove the need for it to be re-entered and reduce the opportunity for error,” Grint says. “The new system is simple to implement and, once adopted, it will allow ISRC to flow through the whole production chain.”

The MPG’s aim is to establish ISRC as the cornerstone of every aspect of digital asset management, from tracking and reporting through to royalty reporting and song identification. This will give the entire music industry a robust and secure system for identifying tracks, and who had input into their creation, so that it can safeguard the incomes of all artists and copyright owners.

Ultimately, the adoption of BWF as standard will provide a cornerstone for the MPG’s Credit Where Credit is Due campaign, which aims to highlight the woeful lack of credit information within the digital domain.

“Our overall goal is to ensure that all music creators receive proper credit and proper payment for their work, and having an industry-standard technical solution that allows credit information to be included in the metadata is a major step forward in achieving this ambition,” Barry Grint says.

DK-Technologies Shows its New DK T7 Audio Meter at NAB 2014

Danish manufacturer DK-Technologies is using the NAB 2014 platform to highlight its new DK T7 Audio and Loudness meter, which will be on show for the first time in the USA (Booth N1201, in conjunction with Ward-Beck).

Launched to enormous critical acclaim at IBC 2013, the ‘everything included’ DK T7 is now shipping with the first units already installed into two Calrec consoles destined for Al Jazeera London.

Designed as a cost-effective, one-box solution for broadcast and post production engineers, the DK T7 incorporates as standard every Audio and Loudness meter function currently offered by the award winning DK Meter range. These functions include Bargraphs, Moving Coil Emulation, DK-technologies’ proprietary StarFish™ and JellyFish™ display technology, FFT spectrum analysis and, of course, industry compliant Loudness and Logging.

The new DK T7 also includes 3G SDI Picture Preview, as well as the ability to read and log against SMPTE time-code – a feature that has only recently been added to the DK Meter range. At just 20 x 135 x 180 mm (depth, height and width), its compact design also allows it to be highly portable and easy to position, while its intuitive multi touch interface makes it very straightforward to use.

“The DK T7 allows end-users to adapt to virtually any format including 3G SDI I/O,” says Uffe Kjems Hansen, Product Marketing Director at DK-Technologies. “The unit also offers 8 AES/EBU input/output channels, 2ch Analogue input channels, headphone output and HDMI monitor output. At just €3,495 and USD 6,390 MSRP, there is simply nothing else on the market in this price range that gives users access to so much functionality.”
At NAB 2014, DK-Technologies will show a new Theatrical Mixing 7.1 Surround display feature for the DK T7, which will have particular relevance to engineers working on big motion picture productions. Also on show is a new pause/resume function for Loudness Logging that will save engineers time when they are adjusting Loudness to hit targets on larger time spans.

“Essentially, this function allows engineers to work step-wise through the entire audio clip, rather than having to go back and measure loudness from the top for every tweak,” Kjems Hansen adds. “The DK T7 was already the most comprehensive audio meter on the market but with these new features it can deliver functionality that no other audio meter can offer.”

DK-Technologies will also be using the NAB 2014 platform to launch its new Matrix PC application, which allows complete audio routing, preset handling, backup and overall management of an audio meter from the end user’s computer. Designed to work with all DK meters including the new DK T7, the Matrix PC application gives users a much better graphical overview of their meters – and significantly easier setup and handling.

Also on show for the first time will be the new DK T7 Stereo – an entry level version of the DK T& meter that is designed for engineers working in stereo.

Junger Audio Helps Polish Broadcasters Get To Grips With Audio Loudness

The issues surrounding audio loudness control were highlighted recently as a training seminar and workshop organised by Polish broadcaster TVP.

Dynamics processing specialist, Jünger Audio, in conjunction with its local distributor, Profi Audio, helped TVP organise and deliver the content for the seminar, which took place at TVP’s headquarters in Warsaw. 60 delegates attended the day-long session, including many from TVP, Polish Radio and private Polish television stations. As well as seminars, there was also lively debate between the delegates and panellists.

“Loudness is obviously a topic that Polish broadcasters are very interested in and we were thrilled by the response to the seminar,” said Jünger Audio’s International Sales Manager Christoph Harm who chaired the event.

Speakers at the seminar included Barbara Turowska, Director of the Department of Monitoring KRRiTV (Poland’s National Broadcasting Countil), who explained the impact on Polish broadcasters of EBU R128-based Loudness regulations that were introduced in 2011. Turowska also stated that KRRiTV is keeping a close eye on the loudness situation in order to satisfy local viewers who complain if commercials are louder than programme material. She added that more restrictive loudness regulations are due to be implemented later in 2014 to combat this issue.

Also on the podium was Peter Pörs, CEO of Jünger Audio, who defined audio loudness and discussed applicable standards including EBU R128, and all versions of ITU 1770. Pörs also highlighted the practical solutions broadcasters can take to control, measure and record audio loudness so that they are prepared for any future legislation that might be introduced.

The seminar ended with a presentation by Christoph Harm who introduced specific Jünger Audio products that are relevant to this topic, including the Voice Processor D*AP4 VAP edition, a unique unit that includes Spectral Signature™ dynamic EQ. He also highlighted the D*AP 8 MAP Monitoring Processor – the only loudness processor that can act as a successor to the Dolby® DP570 tool, which was discontinued in 2013.

Litepanels Unveils Powerful Sola 9 and Inca 9 at NAB 2014

New 9″ LED Fresnels Combine High Powered Illumination Output with Energy Efficiencies and Cost Savings

Litepanels NAB Booth #C6025

CHATSWORTH, Calif. – Litepanels(r), a Vitec Group brand and premier provider of LED lighting for the broadcast and production industries, will debut the Sola 9 (daylight balanced) and Inca 9 (tungsten balanced) LED Fresnels at NAB 2014. Following last year’s breakthrough launch of the Sola 12 and Inca 12, the new 9″ fixtures fill a market demand for medium-sized LED Fresnels. Litepanels’ industry leading collection of LED Fresnels now covers the complete range needed to deliver a full LED solution for broadcast studios, episodic television, and feature film production.

Ideal for studio and remote applications, the Sola 9 and Inca 9 are stronger and brighter than a traditional 1K Fresnel while offering a host of cost effective features. These energy efficient fixtures draw a mere 189 watts of electricity, and generate only a small amount of heat through Litepanels’ patented Cool to the Touch(tm) LED technology that allow for greatly reduced HVAC costs. They also offer years of color accurate service without the need for traditional lamp replacements. Additionally, an integrated DMX module offers unprecedented control by allowing both remote dimming and focusing. This eliminates the need for expensive dimmers and a dedicated, climate controlled dimmer room, and makes the use of ladders to adjust focus obsolete. The proprietary DMX module works with readily available and affordable RJ45 Ethernet connections via any standard DMX512 protocol device. With these energy, facility and labor savings, Litepanels’ LED fixtures have been proven to generate a return on investment (ROI), typically in 3 years or less.

Producing high quality, visually accurate, full spectrum light, the Sola 9 and Inca 9 feature Litepanels’ smooth dimming, from 100 percent to zero with no noticeable color shift, and are flicker-free at any frame rate or shutter angle. The custom 9″ Fresnel lens, with a beam angle from 54° to 15°, emits an even, collimated light source that can be focused and controlled for maximum flexibility.

While the high CRI (Color Rendering Index) LEDs in the versatile Sola 9 and Inca 9 are optimized for lighting talent, they offer a host of applications. The high output allows the Sola 9 to balance natural light in full daylight exterior or interior situations, and it can serve as an artificial sunlight source through a window or other opening on a stage or location setting. The color temperature of the tungsten balanced LED in the Inca 9 is designed to match existing incandescent Fresnel fixtures, so that it can be easily installed for side-by-side use. With no external ballast and only a short restrike period required, the Sola 9 and Inca 9 are as perfect for the rapid pace of episodic television and motion picture productions as they are for the broadcast studio.

“With the introduction of the Sola 9 and Inca 9, Litepanels now offers a complete LED solution for broadcast and production applications,” commented Chris Marchitelli, Vice President of global marketing for Litepanels. “This has been our goal for customers since we first set out to reimagine the traditional Fresnel fixture. We understood the inherent differences between tungsten bulbs and LED emitters, and knew that it demanded a fresh perspective on fixture design. Litepanels’ revolutionary LED Fresnel fixtures were designed from the ground up, and we took great care to ensure that familiar form factor and function were not lost in the process. Now our complete collection can be used to complement existing lighting plots or to create a whole new system, offering color consistency, energy conservation, and cost efficiencies across the board.”

The user-friendly Sola 9 and Inca 9 both include 8-way barndoors, a Standard Yoke with Junior Pin to enable easy mounting and positioning, and an AC power supply. Optional accessories include the 5-piece CTO or CTB Gel Set with Gel Bag and the RJ45 to 5-pin XLR Conversion Cable.

    ARC-Productions First Belgian Company To Back MLA Platform

    Photo caption (Left to Right): Steven Kemland, Andy Davies (Martin Audio), Marc De Baets, Andreas Weingärtner (Martin Audio) at the PL+S booth in Frankfurt

    Belgian pro audio and lighting specialists ARC-Productions have confirmed the purchase of 16-enclosure Martin Audio MLA Compact and Mini PA rigs, the first company in that country to do so.

    Based near Ghent in Flanders, Marc De Baets’ sales and rental company has a long history with Martin Audio dating back to the purchase of a W8 Compact in 2001. He has subsequently invested in WT2, LE1200 and 1500s, WS 218X subs and W8LC.

    “His complete speaker inventory has been made up of Martin Audio for many years,” confirms Steven Kemland of FACE, the manufacturer’s Belgian distributor, who serviced the recent order.

    Marc De Baets had been operating under his own name before setting up ARC-Productions at the end of 2008 and had been in conversation with Kemland about the MLA from its inception. “The first time I heard the MLA was on the Summerfestival in Antwerp three ago,” he remembers. “I was particularly impressed with the MLX subs, not only the output but also the weight.

    “The biggest advance of the MLA system is the even coverage, making it a great tool to counter undesired noise pollution, a very hot topic in Belgium. The compact size and weight, requiring less truck space, were other advantages.” Marc was also present at the MLA Compact European launch in London last year.

    Steven Kemland takes up the story. “Marc first heard the MLA Mini in our demo room. The full MLA system is too big for a mid-range company but with MLA Compact and MLA Mini—supplemented by some DD6 and XD12 or DD12 cabinets—it is possible to manage any job between 100 and 10,000 capacity.”

    De Baets had initially planned to buy only the MLA Mini version to run alongside his existing W8LC, but after considering the importance of the sound pollution problem in Belgium, he opted for a complete change and purchased 16 x MLA Mini and 16 x MLA Compact, with four MSX subs planned for next year. Meanwhile the system will be run with ARC-Productions’ WS218X subs.

    Delivery is planned for the beginning of April, with system training in Belgium and the system will make its major debut at Leiepop Festival in early May before going on to do other festival work (as well as servicing ARC-Productions’ other busy work program).

    Adds Steven Kemland, “Having conducted a lot of MLA demos, which have really got the market talking, it is important to have followed this up with our first system sale in Belgium. This investment is a big step up for ARC-Productions and gives them the opportunity for growth.”

    In summary Marc De Baets promises this is just the start of his adventure into the world of MLA. “I really believe in this new technology,” he concludes.
