Description

Taking control to the next level, the ALPS-3 broadcast audio processor features full remote-control via both GPI and Internet (IP). For situations where audio parameters need to be changed on a regular basis, fully-flexible scheduling software is provided. All processing parameters can be remotely altered by automation systems to reflect changes in broadcast content.

Features:

  • Top quality; 48-bit (24 bit i/o), 88.2 or 96kHz native-mode, also accepts 32, 44.1, 48kHz
  • Factory presets deliver exactly the results you need …fast
  • A properly integrated single-box solution with all features needed for broadcast
  • Maintains programme reliability - ‘pass-through’ relays for analogue and digital paths
  • Straightforward, clear and intuitive user interface
  • Security system prevents unauthorised tampering
  • Bright, Always-Visible LED bargraphs for audio confidence checks
  • Low audio latency (2.2 - 4 milliseconds), fast boot-up (<1 second), low power (10W)

BENEFITS:

  • Brings consistency to programme streams without erasing musical dynamics
  • Ends listener annoyance from over-loud segments such as commercials and shouting DJs
  • Improves audibility and clarity of programme
  • Eliminates overload distortion and damage forever
  • Eliminates the inconvenience of unauthorised tampering with controls
  • Maintains programme path reliability

APPLICATIONS:

Control levels where IP remote control and / or scheduling is useful:

  • Level control for Network, Major Market and automated broadcasters
  • Normalisation at Ingest and Master Control – done right!
  • Sound level control for Television
  • FM broadcast: Networks, Relay from satellite, remote sites
