Digital automation platform
Audiovault V-Flex: This platform addresses the operational challenges of multicasting, voice tracking and Web streaming with personalized setup, advanced segue editor, sophisticated asset management, multi-thread interactive collaboration and more. Personalized studio mashups combine studio tools and applications from more than one source into a single workspace. Announcers and producers can profile workspaces unique to each show, workstyle or for operational continuity throughout the studio environment. V-Flex lets users choose and define task icons from a large pallet of operating functions. Advanced segue editor offers seamless voice-tracking and localizing multiple stations from a centralized studio. V-Flex handles complex segues; it can even do double donuts. Plus, talent can manipulate fades, audio levels and other characteristics of segues. V-Flex has a better, faster search engine and more tools to categorize and manage audio assets for personalizing and repurposing music libraries for new channels on the air and on the Web. A multi-thread engine enables talent in separate studios to work collectively off the same log, in real-time.
Composite low pass filter
LPF-100: This stereo baseband low-pass filter is a 10th order, linear phase electronic filter designed to reduce baseband noise levels while not materially affecting stereo performance or modulation depth. The LPF-100 can be used when noise from studio to transmitter links, processing equipment or stereo generator anomalies interfere with SCA performance or where noise levels are high enough to induce multi-path-like effects in received signals. Poor phase response results in poor stereo separation due to pilot phase error. Poor amplitude balance causes cross talk between main and sub channels resulting in poor stereo separation. The LPF-100 offers minimal group delay error and good pass band amplitude response. Phase and amplitude errors are within the correction range of most modern stereo generators. Minimizing noise in the stereo base band has another important benefit in today's digital broadcasting environment. Less transmitted noise from your analog transmitter means better mask performance when adding in band on channel digital broadcast carriers to an existing system. Less interaction between analog and digital signals is a plus for better digital performance.
Audio level controller
ALPS-3: Taking control to the next level, the ALPS-3 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. Perceived loudness, dynamic range and peak level are suitable for all situations where some combination of these three must be powerfully yet unobtrusively controlled. Every processing parameter, including all thresholds and time constants, can be accessed and modified under PC control via: RS-232 serial, Ethernet/Internet or USB (front panel). GPI port allows automatic control and change-over from hard-disk play-out and automation systems.

Online form creation
Eform-Connect: Eform-Connect is an application that provides a way to seamlessly fill out forms, capture form data, and electronically sign forms. Both forms and data can be distributed electronically throughout the entire enterprise via secured network connections. Lima will work closely with your form creators to ensure form data is captured to your precise specifications. As part of the Lima Database Hosting and Application Service, valuable form processing functions include: Balloon help, field validation, auto-fill of specified data, powerful report tools, analytics and real-time alerts. After your customized Eform-Connect package has been created, it is available for download to your desktop or online, from Lima's online distribution center. Once the system is enabled, your forms are available for fillout, signing and printing.
32-amp Powercon: Neutrik's enhanced 32 amp Powercon is a locking three-conductor ac connector system with contacts for line, neutral and pre-mating ground contact. The system is ideal for high power distribution systems and supplies for professional audio and lighting equipment and installations; it replaces appliance couplers wherever a very rugged solution, in combination with a locking device, is required in order to guarantee a safe power connection. The system consists of two connectors: a chassis receptacle and an inline cable connector with locking mechanism. Powercon can be used as a power supply interface for industrial applications and has the advantage of a secure locking system, not available with standard ac power connectors. The connectors fulfill all current UL safety standards and is UL recognized. The Powercon is a connector without breaking capacity, and should not be connected or disconnected under load or live situations.
Upgrades and Updates
Audio-Technica has released a straight-cable option for its flagship ATH-M50 headphones. The ATH-M50s is identical to the original except for the cable. (www.audio-technica.com)...The Neutrik MR-Pro will include extended mass storage RAM capacity of 512MB to store 16 times as many test signals. All earlier MR-Pro units can be factory upgraded with the new memory. (www.nti-audio.com)...Orban has released version 3 of its 1010 Opticodec-PC streaming encoder, which now supports the Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP), the protocol that Adobe Flash Media Server 3 uses to stream data, audio and video via the Internet, as well as Icy Shoutcast, Icecast 2, and standards-based RTSP/RTP MPEG-4/3GPP protocols. (www.orban.com)...Izotope is now shipping its ANR-B Adaptive Real-time Noise Reduction Unit. (www.izotope.com)
