Weigel Broadcasting Co. Relies on Cobalt Digital and nbsp;Processing for EAS Insertion, CALM Compliance

Cobalt Digital today announced Chicago-based Weigel Broadcasting Co., which owns and operates stations in nine markets in addition to MeTV and other digital multicast networks, is using Cobalt’s software defined 9922-FS-DSP platform for openGear® frames to provide microservices for Emergency Alert System local insertion and CALM compliance for its terrestrial stations. Most recently, the company purchased five cards in March for KTLN, a Heroes & Icons and MeTV affiliate serving San Francisco (DMA #8).


“It’s one of the few cards of its kind that is flexible,” explained Kyle Walker, vice president of technology for Weigel Broadcasting. “It’s the Swiss Army Knife of cards. This card can literally do it all at the right price point.”

Weigel has deployed dozens of 9922-FS-DSP cards, which offer a combination of rich broadcast connectivity and flexible microservices that make them cost effective options for many applications. The +EAS option allows Weigel to key EAS text crawls into active video and insert station logos. Some stations also add the +TTS option, which provides Text-To-Speech conversion of EAS text.

Linear Acoustic(R) Announces Debut of AERO.lite(TM) Posted: 20/03/2012
Linear Acoustic(R) Announces Debut of AERO.lite(TM)

Linear Acoustic(R), the leader in television audio control from production to transmission, is introducing a new member of the AERO(TM) family -- the AERO.lite(TM).

 
AERO.lite is a two-channel (stereo) loudness controller designed to provide Linear Acoustic-quality audio transmission processing at an affordable price to broadcasters who don't have a need to handle multichannel audio.
 
"With the implementation of the CALM Act, U.S. broadcasters want to make sure they're compliant," said Tim Carroll, President of Linear Acoustic. "They were asking for an essentials-only AERO loudness controller. We also saw a need in the global market -- where multichannel audio isn't as prevalent -- and we knew it had to be both worthy of the Linear Acoustic name and offered at a truly economical price. We are proud to introduce our solution -- the AERO.lite."
 
AERO.lite comes in a compact 1-RU package and offers HD/SD-SDI, AES, and analog inputs and outputs. Audio can be extracted from any HD/SD-SDI pair for processing, and the processed audio can be re-embedded into any or all SDI pairs. GPI/O alarms and control are also included. Options include an integrated ITU-R BS.1770 loudness meter, SNMP, and an external redundant power supply.
