Telos Alliance company Linear Acoustic’s ARC next-generation television loudness processor is now shipping worldwide.
ARC can simultaneously process two unique two-channel stereo or mono programs and delivers audio that is compliant to any global loudness standard, including EBU R128 and ATSC A/85.
Setup is said to be straightforward using the browser- and platform-agnostic web-based user interface: specify a target output loudness value, choose a processing profile for the desired recommendation, and walk away fully confident that ARC will deliver compliant audio to your viewers. Dual redundant internal auto-sensing power supplies (100-264VAC, 50/60Hz) are standard.
According to Linear Acoustic, the introduction of ARC brings this quality within reach of budget-conscious customers and delivers a feature set that makes it particularly attractive to markets where support for multi-channel and coded audio are not needed.
“Customers on a strict budget no longer have to accept mediocre television audio processing,” says John Schur, president, Telos Alliance TV Solutions Group. “And they don’t need to pay for features like multi-channel support, coding, or audience measurement capabilities in markets or regions where they aren’t needed or supported.”
