Art.nr.: JUN-D-AP8 MAP
This ground-breaking tool combines an audio monitor controller with network-enabled loudness measurement plus optional Dolby® real-time metadata emulation features in one unit. It provides comprehensive quality control and loudness monitoring for anyone working in a broadcast production, post-production or playout environment.
Targeting quality control (QC) of surround (5.1/7.1) or stereo programs, D*AP8 MAP EDITION is designed for live monitoring and compliance measurements according to loudness standards and regulations including ITU BS.1770 standards (revisions 1, 2 and 3) as well as recommended practices ATSC A/85 (2011/2013), ARIB TR-B32, Free TV OP-59, Portaria 354 and EBU R128.
Alongside loudness measurements, D*AP8 MAP EDITION also offers monitoring control features. It supports up to eight speakers to allow for A/B checking of stereo compatibility of a surround downmix through alternative speakers, as well as via L/R front speakers. A Dolby® production toolset allows for real-time Dolby® metadata emulation your audio stream and lets you simulate the listener’s impression at home.
By incorporating up to two auto sensing 3G, HD or SD-SDI interfaces DAP8 MAP EDITION gives users access to 16 channels of SDI embedded audio. It is also possible to send deembedded programs to DAP8 MAP EDITION’s AES outputs to feed a third party equipment. The D*AP8 MAP EDITION’s SDI board can also be used as an embedder, and comes with video and audio delay to compensate any latency between audio and video.
To check compliance of programs with your local loudness regulations the unit analyzes loudness and true peak levels from input signals and transfers the measurement data via Ethernet to an optional measurement and logging software anywhere in your network. These measurements can be triggered by automation systems via GPIs, via network or even manually on the XAP RM1 remote panel. The DAP8 MAP EDITION may also generate SNMP or GPI/O alarms in case pre-determined limits are exceeded.
The optional Loudness Logger software allows for long term program logging and analysis.
All system parameters are remotely accessible allowing the unit to be integrated and remotely operated by broadcast control systems.
A web interface allows easy and intuitive setup and configuration anywhere in your network.
Audio I/Os range from on board AES I/O to optional 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O including video delay and analog I/O. With redundant PSU and SNMP integration the unit ensures maximum operational safety.
