“More features are now standard in the,” said Tim Carroll, founder of Linear Acoustic. “When broadcasters need a smart, reliable, cost-effective method for maintaining legal compliance, is the one.”

The is a simple, cost-effective solution designed to manage loudness, upmixing, metadata, signal routing, and audio coding. It is an ideal choice for affiliate stations that need to match local and network content and provide a seamless surround sound experience for their viewers. Also well suited to serve as a processor for the backup transmission path, allows the broadcaster to match the audio quality of the main path in a cost-effective manner. The is available in three versions: dual stereo (2+2), surround sound (5.1), and both (5.1+2). HD/SD-SDI I/O and dual power supplies are now included as standard features.

The company is also majoring on its the upgraded LQ-1000 loudness quality monitor.

“Production is easier and more intuitive with the new LQ-1000,” said Carroll. “It’s vital to get loudness control right from the start. We just made it easier with new standard features.”

The LQ-1000 supports the new ITU-R BS.1770-2 recommendation for measuring loudness and displays the results in a logical, easy-to-understand format. A colorful long-life OLED display groups critical loudness parameters like three adjustable integrated loudness measures, loudness history, current peak level, maximum peak level, and maximum loudness. The new LQ-1000 adds as standard features HD/SD-SDI I/O and a simple manual “gain apply” scaling function.
