At IBC2010, NOA Audio Solutions will introduce NOA Record 4, part of its IngestLine family of systems for fast, cost-effective, accurate migration of audio from analog to digital storage. Developed in response to the needs of enterprises with a great deal of audio stored on long-playing magnetic tape, vinyl, or both, the NOA Record 4 extends the speed and capacity of the system by one-third -- from three to four parallel stereo streams.
"Our customers asked, and we are responding," said Jean-Christophe Kummer, NOA managing partner. "NOA's MediaLector and CD Lector products already meet the mass migration needs of customers with large archives stored on DAT and CD. Now, we add higher throughput to the Record system to suit customers whose analog audio archive material is currently carried on cassette, vinyl, open reel tape, and 78s."
NOA Record integrates seamlessly with both NOA mediARC(TM) and JobDatabase workflow systems to form a unified solution for digitization and archive management. Working within the mediARC or JobDatabase environment, NOA Record 4 can increase throughput from the current 2.7 hours of sound digitized per hour to 3.6 hours of sound digitized per hour -- an impressive 33 percent increase in capacity.
The NOA Record ingest system comprises NOA Record software, the N6071 Workstation, and N6000A hardware and replayer communication modules. The NOA Record features tightly integrated software-controlled A/D converters that pack an excess of 125 dB dynamic range. With an easy-to-read user interface for multiple simultaneous sources, NOA Record displays relevant recording and playback parameters of all stations on a single screen divided into section panels, thereby affording the user an at-a-glance view of the most important functions. More features include Traces Aided Spot listening (TAS), remote control of hardware, and the world's top Azimuth monitoring tool.
NOA will demonstrate its upgraded NOA Record system at stand 8.D91 at IBC2010 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Sept. 9-14. NOA Record 4 will be released Sept. 30, 2010.
