Trusted Linear Acoustic AEROMAX® loudness control, UPMAX® upmixing, and ITU-R BS.1770-3 metering plus available Dolby® encoding and decoding guarantees compliance with world-wide audio loudness regulations and the highest audio quality.
Audio over IP connectivity via Livewire+/AES-67 enables distributed I/O via networked devices such as the SDI xNode, AES xNode, or analog xNode.
AERO.soft includes the AEROMAX adaptive wideband and multiband, multistage ITU compliant loudness control algorithm. Upmixing is provided by the Hollywood-approved UPMAX algorithm, which delivers engaging 5.1-channel audio experience for two-channel sources. Loudness, spectral balance, and image shifts are controlled while preserving more of the original content than previously possible. AERO.soft uses the latest Dolby codecs which support Evolution, part of their new Intelligent Media Framework.
Each AERO.soft service is capable of handling up to eight processing instances. Each instance can be either 5.1+2+2 with upmixing and downmixing, or 2+2+2. Both types include Auto Downmix output, support for SAP/DVS, Voiceover, and optional Audio Description (warble tone) functionality. ITU-R BS.1770-3 or EBU R128 meters are present on each output (24 total). Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby E decoding and encoding is optionally available for each instance.
