Last year’s NAB Show saw an unprecedented launching of large-scale broadcast processors from major manufacturers. Inovonics bided its time and at the 2011 NAB Show is showing its latest giant killer, the David IV.
The David IV looks a little different than much of Inovonics’ previous equipment.
It features a five-band “multipressor” (five bands of compressor and graphic EQ each), high-pass filter, gain-riding AGC, stereo enhancer, stereo encoder, bass management controls and Inovonics’ PIPP final limiter. The AGC offers a capture range of ±18 dB and an adjustable correction rate according to a release.
Inputs and outputs include a digital input (AES3 32 kHz–192 kHz), digital output (AES3 32 kHz–96 kHz) and analog I/O (XLR). The program outputs are programmable. There are also composite/MPX outputs, an RDS subcarrier input and RDS sync output.
Not surprisingly, the David IV can be controlled via the Web and a computer. Inovonics says that presets for popular radio formats are included and new ones can be easily downloaded.
