AERO.2000 Audio/Loudness Manager
Built upon the highly successful AERO.air™, AERO.2000™ combines air-proven loudness control, AEROMAX® audio processing, Dolby® encoding/decoding, unmatched upmixing via UPMAX® II, and extensive I/O features.
The base program configuration is 5.1+2+Local for a total of 10 audio channels (via baseband, AES, or embedded SDI), plus standard Dolby Digital (AC-3) and Dolby E decoding, Dolby Digital (AC-3) encoding, and Nielsen® Watermarking for audience measurement. A full-time LtRt or LoRo downmix of the main 5.1 channel program is also available.
Optionally, AERO.2000 can be configured to include an additional second instance in either a 5.1+2+Local configuration with the same Dolby and Nielsen features as the first instance, or with a 2+2+Local instance without Dolby or Nielsen. It is also availble in a 5.1+2+Local configuration with no Dolby or Nielsen coding whatsoever.
Professional audio metadata can be applied to AERO.2000 to minimize processing and control functions, or, traditional AEROMAX processing and industry-standard UPMAX-II upmixing can be employed.
A comprehensive TCP/IP remote control is included, providing full adjustment, ITU-R BS.1770-3 meters for all programs, return audio for remote monitoring, and an HTTP server for get/set control. Compensating video delay and dual redundant power supplies are standard.
