Version 1.25 contains ITU BS.1770-2-based loudness adjustment and dedicated new factory presets for stations conforming to either of the EBU R128, ATSC A/85, TR-B32 or OP59 standards. In addition to more processing and new presets, V. 1.25 also introduces one-pass trickle-down processing from these new broadcast standards to help optimize simulcasts for mobile and IPTV.
The software upgrade also features a new Mobile preset bank, which offers high-resolution, on-the-fly conversion of content for mobile broadcast. The DB2’s 48-bit domain one-step process ensures mobile and iPod audio intelligibility at the highest possible quality, regardless of which data-reduction codec is being used. Finally, its true-peak output limiter makes even decade-old data reduction, such as AC3 or MP3, sound remarkably good, and the already low-latency has been decreased further to 0.8 ms.
The new software V. 1.25 is free of charge to all DB2 users, including an update of the remote application, Icon.
