Jünger Audio Improves The Sound for Thailand’s TV Viewers
Audience enjoyment is a key factor for the broadcaster, which is renowned for the quality of its flagship news, sport, documentary and light entertainment programming. Three years ago, it installed a number of Jünger Audio LEVEL MAGIC processors at its facility in Bangkok and these worked so well that it decided to invest in more.
Vichai Sernvongsat, True Visions’ Chief Technical Officer, says: “We wanted to maintain the same audio level across all of our broadcast channels so that viewers would not notice obvious and dramatic differences in audio loudness. The Jünger Audio equipment perfectly meets our requirements. The problem of different audio levels on different channels has now been solved and we are very happy with the results.”
Advance Digital Tech Group, Jünger Audio’s distributor in Thailand, supplied True Visions TV with its LEVEL MAGIC equipment and anticipates further sales to the broadcaster in the future.
LEVEL MAGIC is a sophisticated adaptive level control algorithm that is designed to adjust the level from any source at any time, with no pumping, breathing or distortion. It is based on a simultaneous combination of an AGC, a Transient Processor for fast changes and a “look ahead” Peak Limiter for continuous unattended control of any programme material, regardless of its original source.
Capable of using any kind of I/O (Analog and Digital) sources, as well as SDI, HD/SDI, Dolby 5.1 and all its related metadata, LEVEL MAGIC is available in a variety of configurations to suit different applications.
Sernvongsat adds: “LEVEL MAGIC is the ideal solution for us because it automatically adjusts and maintains audio levels. This normalises our programme content volume across channels without adding the effects of dynamics processing.”
