25-Seven Systems plans to demo its Audio Time Manager in Charlotte.
The time compressor allows stations to pause a network feed, insert content, then return to where the program left off and catch up to real time.
Time compression rates can be adjusted on the fly, or the unit can be used to time shift programs up to an hour. The company says advanced algorithms leave speech and music sounding natural. The front offers two-button operation. Remote control is available through an 8 x 8 GPIO, RS-232 or over a LAN or WAN using a Web server.
Additional highlights include stereo analog and digital (AES) I/O breakout on XLR connectors, and linear audio processing at 44.1 or 48 kHz. Axia Livewire compatibility also is available.
