Real-Time Audio Processing for Television
Telos Alliance's Linear Acoustic line of audio processors have been the industry standard choice for delivering multi-channel digital television audio that assures broadcasters of meeting compliance and regulatory demands while simultaneously providing viewers with the highest quality audio experience possible.
Embraced and relied upon by local affiliate stations, content distributors, cable and satellite networks, and major over-the-air networks, AERO real-time processors sit in the final transmission or distribution path where they effectively control unwanted loudness shifts and ensure compliance with ATSC A/85 and EBU R128 standards while still delivering a pleasing and dynamic audio experience for viewers. Beyond their primary role as loudness managers, AERO products also serve as flexible signal routers offering AES I/O, HD/SD-SDI de-embedding and re-embedding, and in some products, analog I/O.
The task of interfacing AoIP with existing analog, AES, and SDI signals is managed by Telos Alliance xNodes including the Telos Alliance SDI AoIP Node which bringing the power and flexibility of Audio over IP to broadcast television. Audio can then be shared on the network, processed for loudness compliance, and ultimately re-embedded into SDI output streams.
