Thomson partners with Jünger for ViBE encoding

Thomson Video Networks has announced a strategic partnership with Jünger Audio that will bring Jünger’s audio loudness technology to Thomson’s ViBE encoding platform.

Jünger Audio’s audio leveling technology delivers broadcast audio that complies with  current loudness regulations. The company’s Level Magic algorithm provides a  series of level controls that address issues broadcasters face, particularly with audio coming from a wide variety of sources.

“We have chosen Jünger from the key players in this arena because the Level Magic algorithm is very highly regarded by broadcast sound engineers for the outstanding results it delivers,” said Claude Perron, chief technology officer of Thomson Video Networks. “Audio quality is a key criterion for our customers and an important part of the viewer experience, and with this collaboration we can combine the leading loudness solution with the leading encoding technology.”

Thomson Video Networks and Jünger will work jointly to integrate Level Magic into the ViBE platform, and the technology will be incorporated into new ViBE products from Q3 2012.
