Orban Labs announced a change in how its PCn1600 audio processing software is sold.
“For several years, Modulation Index and StreamS had an exclusive license to sell PCn1600 processing; that exclusivity ended this week,” the company stated.
President David Day said in the announcement, “All Orban dealers worldwide can now add our PCn1600 to their Orban product portfolio. … It is our understanding that Modulation Index and StreamS will continue to support their existing PCn1600 users.”

Orban said the PCn1600 brought the company’s audio processing technology to audio streaming operating natively on Windows PC platforms and that Orban has used variants in its XPN-AM processor and in the Linux-based Ross RSAP.
Modulation Index is headed by Greg Ogonowski; StreamS is its line of streaming encoders and other audio products. It confirmed that “due to a failure to reach a mutually satisfying agreement with Orban Labs,” it will no longer sell the Orban Optimod 1600 PCn on an exclusive basis.
“The Orban Optimod 1600 PCn has been a big part of our product offerings and we will continue to work with clients who purchase the Optimod 1600 from us and are under a support contract,” Modulation Index said in a statement. “We will also expand our support for other audio processors that are available in software form, which we believe is the future of audio processing not just for streaming but for every broadcast venue.”
