THE HORUS Networked Audio Converter heads the pack with its first NAB appearance. The same is true of the MXFix Loudness Compliance Server, which deals with new loudness regulations being introduced. Also on show will be the Pyramix Virtual Studio, Ovation Media Server and Sequencer and VCube Hi Def Video System.
The Horus digital audio input connections are MADI and AES/EBU with optional analogue mic and line inputs. For outputs there are MADI, AES/EBU and optional analogue line. Additionally there are connections for LTC, MIDI, RS-422 and GPIO. The final socket is the RJ- 45 that connects the RAVENNA IP Audio stream. Once Horus becomes part of a network, the options for control of the audio and routing of channels are increased. Connected to other RAVENNA enabled devices, a complete system can be connected with a cable between any of the units, which then become nodes on the network.
The MXFix batch-processing
wrap tool performs fully EBU R-128 and ITU1770/ATSC compliant loudness measurement, loudness report generation, loudness level correction, True Peak limiting, Dolby E decoding & encoding, Dolby E line position correction, audio wrapping and MXF metadata conformity wrapping in one watch-folder- based offline processor. MXFix also has a web-based status- monitoring interface that shows the status of all tasks on any networked device or allows an operator to change task priority orders. C3239
