AXON: European Debut Cerebrum - Monitoring and Control

AXON'S Cerebrum @ NAB2014

IBC2014, where Axon celebrates its 20th presence, will mark the European launch of Axon's monitoring and control software Cerebrum. This launch coincides with Cerebrum wins at CTV and ESPN Mexico.

Where software normally is either specialized for use for control or for monitoring of broadcast devices Cerebrum combines both applications. Flexibility is essential in today’s broadcast environment. Cerebrum delivers the customizable control and monitoring interface for a wide range of devices from different manufacturers - including routers, production switchers, servers, receiver decoders, multiviewers and waveform monitors - using either SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) or third party protocols.

Compliance Recording & Loudness Monitoring
At IBC Axon will launch the loudness monitoring and logging option for the compliance recording / video air check product line TRACS. Driven by Emsytech Hummingbird Loudness Meters®, all audio (up to 8 stereo pairs) is measured for Momentary Loudness (400ms), Short-term Loudness (3s) and Integrated Loudness (Loudness measured over the last hour continuously). During live play or playback of the recorded content, the Momentary, Short term and integrated measurements are shown in audio bars, in sync with the video. The course of the loudness levels during a user defined period of time can be shown in a loudness history graph which can be exported to pdf or csv files.

Foldable flight pack for mobile applications
Axon introduces a foldable flight pack for mobile live production applications with AXON's Synapse infrastructure,  SynCross routing, SynView multiview,  SynLive  live production mixer, SFR Mobile Portable frame and room for third party OCP's, intercom systems, audio mixer and 2 screens.
