ROUTER CARDS Cobalt Digital has launched the 9941 Series, a range of compact routers for the openGear platform. The cards increase the density and flexibility available to system designers who are using openGear-based products. The 3G/HD/SD-SDI/ASI/MADI versions of thee modular router cards range in size from 12 x 12 or 24 x 24 square to a 12 x 4 asymmetrical I/O configuration. A 12 x 4 12G-SDI version is also available.

The improved dashboard simplifies archive procedures by providing tools for archive and restore functionality, system health, monitoring, analysis and reporting. It will be incrementally rolled out over the next 12 months. SGL’s FlashNet content management system works with MAM or automation control systems to provide improvements to workflow efficiency without intruding on the user’s familiar desktop. Features include: automated workflows to offload or backup media content from online storage to low-cost storage and deep archive; support for inline partial file restore; and archive analytics to help improve operational planning and efficiency. LOUDNESS RTW introduced several software updates at Broadcast Asia including improvements to the Continuous Loudness Control (CLC) software that was jointly developed with the German Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT). The CLC application features a real-time visualisation and patented processing algorithm that allows users to constantly control and regulate a given programme loudness value and provides a definable loudness range with minimal obstacles for unknown, live content. The CLC algorithm ‘learns’ about the dynamic structure and intention of the sound signal during processing, and uses that learned information to predict what comes next. Also on show was version 4.0 of its Loudness Tools and Mastering Tools software applications. The update supports Mac OS X 10.11 and a selectable 12th octave RTA and cinema loudness (TASA and SAWA).
