GatesAir enhance its software and hardware Intraplex audio solutions with ATC Labs’ technolgy
GatesAir has recently added a software solution on its Intraplex IP Link. The addition performs ten-band audio processing software from ATC Labs within two GatesAir Intraplex single and multi-channel transport solutions. Also, GatesAir will add ATC Labs’ Perceptual SoundMax Audio Technology to its Intraplex IP Link 100c hardware codec and its scalable Intraplex Ascent cloud transport platform.
“Higher-resolution audio processing brings far better control to broadcasters as the technology affects only the specific and targeted audio characteristics,” said Dr. Deepen Sinha, CEO, ATC Labs. “In Perceptual SoundMax, high-resolution audio processing technology is combined with psychoacoustic principles and wide-band perceptual models, which ensures the greatest possible accuracy in tuning the sound quality for each application. Also reduces the perception of artifacts introduced due to digital compression codecs, which are integral to audio transport solutions. Combined with GatesAir’s innovative Intraplex products, we can together provide sophisticated audio transport solutions that also enhance audio quality for FM and digital radio broadcasters.”
The Intraplex IP Link 100c codec provides broadcasters with a single-channel solution for remote contribution, Icecast streaming and standard STL IP connections. Intraplex Ascent’s scalable platform allows migration to a software-based, cloud transport solution that can scale audio processing requirements for multiple channels. Both solutions include standard Intraplex features such as Dynamic Stream Splicing software for stream repair and redundancy, SRT protocol support, and Intraplex SynchroCast simulcasting across multiple transmitters.
“ATC Labs is at the forefront of AI-based audio processing technology, used by leading terrestrial and satellite radio broadcasters worldwide,” said Keyur Parikh, Vice President of Engineering, GatesAir. “Instead of buying two separate hardware products, our customers have the best of both worlds in one professionally integrated solution. Broadcasters can activate the audio processing engine at the source or destination, providing broadcasters with a robust, reliable and flexible Intraplex solution that is competitively priced with a quick ROI.”
