Axon to celebrate 20th presence at IBC; launch Cerebrum software
This year at IBC, Axon will celebrate its 20th presence and mark the European launch of Axon’s monitoring and control software, Cerebrum. The launch coincides with Cerebrum wins at CTV and ESPN Mexico.
Where software normally is either specialised for use for control or for monitoring of broadcast devices Cerebrum combines both applications. Flexibility is essential in today’s broadcast environment. Cerebrum delivers the customisable control and monitoring interface for a wide range of devices from different manufacturers – including routers, production switchers, servers, receiver decoders, multiviewers and waveform monitors – using either SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) or third party protocols.
At IBC Axon will launch the loudness monitoring and logging option for the compliance recording/video air check product line TRACS. Driven by Emsytech Hummingbird Loudness Meters, all audio (up to 8 stereo pairs) is measured for Momentary Loudness (400ms), Short-term Loudness (3s) and Integrated Loudness (loudness measured over the last hour continuously). During live play or playback of the recorded content, the Momentary, Short term and integrated measurements are shown in audio bars, in sync with the video. The course of the loudness levels during a user defined period of time can be shown in a loudness history graph which can be exported to pdf or csv files.
Axon will also introduce a foldable flight pack for mobile live production applications with AXON’s Synapse infrastructure, SynCross routing, SynView multiview, SynLive live production mixer, SFR Mobile Portable frame and room for third party OCPs, intercom systems, audio mixer and two screens.
Meanwhile, Axon’s signal processing product line Synapse has been enhanced with a high-quality up/down/cross converter (GXG400), which is also available in a dual-channel version (2XG400). This high-end up/down/cross converter ensures the absolute best quality video conversion from any standard to any standard within the same frame rate. The card allows simulcasting any output standard in any format from any source standard.
