Jünger Audio to reveal M*AP at IBC 2012

 Dynamics specialist Jünger Audio will unveil M*AP, its latest audio loudness processor, at IBC 2012. The new processor combines an audio monitor controller and a loudness measurement device all in one unit. The unit comes with alarm signals that alert the operator when pre-set loudness thresholds are exceeded, and these signals can be delivered by simple GPOs and/or SNMP traps, which carry actual loudness values. Loudness measurements can be performed over a long run or over a fraction of a program, or both. These measurements can be triggered by automation systems via GPIs or via the network – or even manually by buttons of the X*AP remote panel. Alongside loudness measurements, M*AP also offers functionality for acoustical QA. It has eight speaker outputs that allow for A/B checking of stereo compatibility of a surround downmix through alternative speakers, as well as via L/R front speakers. Peter Pörs, managing director of Jünger Audio, commented: “By incorporating 3G, HD and SD auto detection, M*AP gives users the option of dealing with all 16 channels of SDI embedded audio at the same time. This means that you can listen to one program while permanently logging the loudness of two (5.1 +2 mode) or four (4×2 mode) programs. It is also possible to send further embedded programs to M*AP’s AES outputs to feed a third party instrument for analyzing and/or display.” At IBC 2012, Jünger Audio will also be showing the rest of the processors in its *AP range, including the T*AP TV, the D*AP LM4 four-channel processor and the D*AP LM2 two-channel processor. In related news the company has also introduced an affordable combination card for its modular C8000 audio processing system. The C8491 combines a 3G/HD/SD-SDI interface capable of handling four, eight, or 16 audio channel SDI streams with a Jünger Level Magic 2 processor for managing loudness.
