Thomson Video Networks has embedded Fraunhofer’s HE-AAC multi-channel audio codec software with full metadata support technology in its flagship ViBE EM4000 encoder.
Thomson will showcase the HE-AAC multi-channel audio codec integrated in the ViBE EM4000 at IBC. Also, on its own stand Fraunhofer will host a complete real-time DVB-T2 live broadcasting chain with the HE-AAC MPEG audio codec for 5.1 surround audio signal transmission using Thomson’s ViBE EM4000 multi-channel HD/SD encoder and NetProcessor 9030/40 multiplexer/DVB-T2 gateway.
“Our ViBE customers are continuously demanding ways to improve their end users’ audio experience, and the Fraunhofer implementation of the MPEG HE-AAC standard gives them a unique combination of high audio quality, very low bit rates, and future-proof flexibility. For that reason, the standard is one of the industry’s most important audio codecs with a growing footprint in TV broadcasting,” said Claude Perron, chief technology officer, Thomson Video Networks. “For Thomson Video Networks, one key factor in our decision to choose the Fraunhofer HE-AAC solution is its full metadata support. We value our partnership with Fraunhofer as a technology provider and an audio expert that has made a major contribution to the AAC standard.”
Thomson Video Networks will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 14.A10. Frauenhofer will be exhibiting on Stand 8.B80
