NAB Sneak Peek: AEQ Debuts Sonata
AEQ is giving NAB Show attendees a new angle on the company, processing.
The Sonata is a four-band digital audio processor (shown). The company says it comes with an intuitive user interface for controlling the processing parameters (e.g. AGC input, dynamic enhancer, five-band limiter with rounded clippers, smart final clipper with IMD masking) as well as the generation of user presets.
It offers 20 factory presets to select a station’s sonic signature and another 20 user presets allowing for the modification and saving of custom settings. Sonata can be configured and controlled locally or via the Internet. The GUI displays the processor’s pathway block diagram to provide an overall view of how the audio signal has been treated. It also includes VU meters for measuring processor results at each stage.
AEQ is also highlighting the NetBOX AoIP audio interfaces at the show. The interfaces, says the firm, allow for audio input and output system connectivity with the NetBOX 32/8 AD featuring 32/8 input and 32/8 output channels, mono or stereo, analog or digital. The unit also incorporates GPIO.
In addition the company is also exhibiting the ConeXia intercom system. Based on a Kroma intercom master controller combined with an AEQ audio matrix, ConeXia provides capacity of up to 1024 x 1024 crosspoints with a variety of audio I/O cards.
ConeXia also offers the possibility for users to integrate intercom and broadcast audio sources into the same matrix. A wide range of intercom panels and audio interface options are available.
