AERO.soft - Bringing audio monitoring and processing into AoIP
Martin Dyster In the past, audio processing and monitoring required the purchasing of multiple, specialized hardware to support each function in the air chain. But now, thanks to the increase in the speed of Ethernet connectivity, and IT-based processing power, many of these same processes can be condensed and supported over IP. Audio in particular is making a move to the IP realm with the recent AES67 standard bringing interoperability between manufacturers. Even with this standardization, Audio over IP (AoIP) is still not being used to its maximum potential in the broadcast space.

Singularity - QA and compliance monitoring in one box
Martin Dyster The task of maintaining loudness-compliant, high-quality delivery for broadcast audio is no longer a question of simply using ones ears. Audio channels produced for todays fast-paced productions come in embedded SDI workflow with streaming signals containing a mix of mono, stereo, surround, Dolby encoded and descriptive audio, as well as alternative mixes and multiple language tracks. Maintaining a quality audio track using this disparate mix of audio elements is one part of the QA equation facing broadcasters.

TSL Professional Products has created the PAM2 MK2 and PAM PiCo compact audio and loudness meter to create a balance between meeting these different international standards.

Innovation, harmonisation, simplification
N/A You could reasonably argue that innovation, harmonisation and simplification is a good motto for designers of any product to bear in mind. It is certainly true for mission critical monitoring, and it is what TSL has tried to do with its range of rack-mounted professional digital audio monitors.

Challenging Loudness
N/A We all watch TV with the remote control close at hand; not just to change channel but more often than not, to ride the volume control because programme and commercial loudness varies from show to show, channel to channel.
