Let DB6 manage your audio loudness to stay compliant with broadcast standards and legislation at all times, without sacrificing audio quality.
DB6 handles up to three SD/HD/3G streams in a single rack space unit. It measures and adjusts audio formats, loudness and true-peak level automatically, at the same time logging stats for documentation and evaluation.
DB6 is an addition to our highly acclaimed DB family of processors that includes DB2, DB4 and DB8.
DB processors have been used 24/7 at numerous world-leading broadcast stations for more than a decade and you can operate them from one constantly developing user interface.
One-Step Loudness Management
Quite simply, DB6 is a TV and Mobile TV transmission processor that is able to handle everything regarding loudness in one simple process: loudness metering at the input stage, up- and/or down conversion at any stage, loudness processing, on-line lip-sync delay, loudness metering at the output stage and logging of all relevant loudness statistics.
In short, it is an intelligent one-step loudness management solution that even keeps your audio at its finest, regardless of which platform you need to deliver to.
Density is key at many broadcast stations and of course in OB Vans. Therefore, DB6 is housed in a single rack space unit that allows you to process up to three SD/HD/3G streams simultaneously, making it one of the most compact and powerful solutions on the market.
Surely, density does not necessarily equal cost-effectiveness, but in this particular case, the cost per stream is highly competitive. With DB6, you get two 5.1 capable processing engines per SDI stream, each able of delivering to any platform and any codec; be it HDTV, Mobile TV, Digital Radio or Podcast using AAC, Dolby, Ogg Vorbis, Lossless or Linear.
DB6 is compliant with all major broadcast standards, and it comes fully loaded with presets tailored specifically with each of these standards in mind.
However, it is not just a matter of being compliant, it is also imperative to stay compliant.
We have taken part in many aspects of defining and developing these standards and remain dedicated to keeping our broadcast equipment up to date whenever a new revision is released.
