DaySequerra Plans Eclipse

Sneak Peek: Processor takes aim at low-bit-rate digital broadcasts

The DaySequerra Eclipse LBR4 Digital Radio Processor is a four-stream AES stereo digital radio processor designed for improving low-bit rate HD Radio multicasts and the HE-AAC v2 codec used in DAB and DRM digital radio.

According to the company the Eclipse features four independent, low-IMD audio processing chains and a proprietary perceptual loudness model developed by DTS based on its research into human hearing.

Each processing chain contains four codec pre-processing algorithms optimized for 24 kbps, 32 kbps, 48 kbps, 64 kbps and 96 kbps rates, tuned to reduce artifacts from lossy compression schemes and low-bit rate transmission codecs. The company promises that Eclipse’s DSP platform delivers a pristine, powerful sound free of processing artifacts.

DaySequerra President David Day said: “Today’s radio listener expects choices with a push of a button without the distraction of poor quality and performance.” He emphasized the product’s ability to deliver better audio performance no matter what the bit-rate while maintaining a station’s sound signature.
