Orban will introduce the Optimod 6300-DAB to digital broadcast and professional audio markets.
The 6300 is a multipurpose stereo audio processor for digital radio, digital television, netcasts, STL protection, audio production and digital mastering.
The unit offers 20 kHz audio bandwidth and 48 kHz internal sample rate, and succeeds Orban’s Optimod-DAB 6200 audio processor while promising improved processing algorithms and more flexibility. The 6300 contains a stereo enhancer, AGC, equalizer, phase-linear multiband compressor/limiter with either two or five bands, and two independent stereo look-ahead peak limiters. Peak limiting can be “flat” or preemphasis-aware at 50 or 75 microseconds, allowing the 6300 to protect preemphasized analog STLs. For video applications, broadcasters can activate the included CBS Loudness Controller to prevent audience irritation and tune-outs caused by loud commercials.
