TV Technology writes about our NAB09 product introductions

Ensemble Designs will show many products at the 2009 NAB Show, including its new LevelTrack Audio AGC, 4500 MPEG Transport Stream Processor, and The Avenue 5360 and 5365.

LevelTrack corrects mismatched audio levels between different program sources or segments within a program. Based upon the history in each channel, gradual changes are applied to prevent the audio level from dropping below or exceeding user programmable thresholds. By adjusting the overall level of the signal, rather than masking the errors with compression, LevelTrack will not upset the internal dynamics of the program material.

The new 4500 MPEG Transport Stream Processor translates DVB-ASI and SMPTE 310M or 310M to ASI. Stream content analysis verifies signal health by evaluating signal presence, program packets, PMT, PAT and PIDs. The reference input is used to synchronize the output bitstream.

The Avenue 5360 and 5365 offer a way to convert four channels of analog video and audio to four streams of SD SDI with embedded audio. This is a solution for satellite installations that need to feed a large number of analog signals from IRDs into a monitor wall. Use these modules with routers, switchers, remote trucks or any application that requires many channels of high quality video and conversion. The optional TBC allows for ingest of noisy or unstable sources.

The company will also be displaying the 9400 3G Signal Generator and Test Signal Generator at NAB, as well as a new HD Bypass Protection Switch—Avenue 7160. The 9400 offers every analog and digital signal needed for a complete house reference system. New closed caption test signals help broadcasters trouble shoot closed caption data carriage through a signal chain.

Avenue 7160 protects critical transmission broadcast and transmission feeds. This smart switch checks for closed caption data, TRS, audio, black and frozen video.

Ensemble Designs will be at booth N4023.
