Linear Acoustic will debut its new range of TV audio processors at NAB 2006. The AEROMAX-TV digital television audio processor is a dynamics unit for 2-channel main and SAP audio with front panel display and controls, plus Ethernet remote control. The 4-channel unit can be configured as 2+2 or 2+1+1 (stereo plus two mono channels). CrowdControl dialog-protection processing is provided for the main program audio.
Located at the point of transmission, MetaMAX is a 5.1-channel DTV audio processor that operates completely in the compressed domain and protects dynamic range while controlling loudness.
Linear Acoustic will also showcase the AEROMAX-HDFM multichannel radio processor, its UpMAX 2251 5.1-channel surround-field synthesizer, and StreamStacker multichannel audio distribution system, which comprises the Model LA-5421 audio bitstream multiplexer and Model LA-5124 de-multiplexer/AC-3 splicer.
