3G/HD/SD-SDI Loudness Processors

Cobalt offers loudness processing for SDI/baseband digital audio as well as transport stream-based MVPD content. Using Linear Acoustic® AEROMAX® technology, audio is free from abrupt loudness or image shifts while preserving more of the original content than available using less refined approaches.

LMNTS (Loudness Management for n-Transport Streams) is a first in comprehensive transport-based loudness processing. LMNTS represents a new level in multi-stream loudness processing integration ease, economy, confidence, and consistency. Operating at the MPEG transport layer, LMNTS provides a practical loudness management solution for MVPD operators without the need or complexity of external codecs transferring between baseband and MPEG interfaces.

In addition to loudness processing-only products, processing is available in conjunction with other powerful audio proc functions such as embed/de-embed, loudness processing, and full-function scaler/framesync products. You can choose form factors from openGear card-based or standalone desktop/1RU mountable BBG-1000 series units.Baseband loudness processing is available as a software field upgrade for many Cobalt products as option LP51 (surround 5.1) and LP20 (stereo).
