Product Description

Handling up to 16 channels of baseband or encoded audio via AES (8 channels) or HD/SD-SDI (16 channels) I/O, the Linear Acoustic® AERO.100 offers all-inclusive audio processing, upmixing, encoding, and metering for over the air, over the top, and mobile television broadcasts in a compact 1RU chassis.

Base configuration includes a single processing instance in a 5.1+2+2 channel configuration, with or without Dolby® encoding and Nielsen® Watermark encoding. A second processing instance (5.1+2+2 or 2+2+2) with or without the Dolby and Nielsen options can be enabled at any time by simply entering a factory provided key.

Local audio insertion, SAP/DVS with downmix replacement, full-time downmix, and support for Audio Description (warble tone) is provided.

Failover bypass relays on all I/O maintain signal continuity and dual auto-ranging power supplies enable redundancy and worldwide compatibility.

Designed and built in the USA, the lightweight and rugged 1RU AERO.100 is a solid investment in performance and flexibility.
