The M6205A-3G is a sophisticated audio processing platform card designed for broadcast use. It can extract and process up to 16 channels of audio embedded in a digital video stream. The M6205-3G accepts 3G, HD-SDI and SD-SDI signals. In addition two AES inputs are provided to enable substitution of the embedded audio signals. The card may also be used as a one group embedder. Functions of the card include channel shuffling, channel replacement or substitution, and mixing.
NLC5.1 is a optional processor which is added to Ward-Becks' M6205A-3G.
DTS Neural Surround DownMix technology reduces 5.1 surround sound to a stereo mix that accurately represents the 5.1 original. The stereo signal is also backward compatible with other matrix style decoders.The DTS Neural Surround DownMix uses an analysis and correction process before the six individual surround streams are combined. By analyzing intensity, time, coherence, polarity and phase characteristics, the signals are transformed into pure intensity and coherence before they are encoded into the stereo mix. This process eliminates problems that traditionally occur in matrix surround encoded systems, such as comb filtering, spatial distortion and signal loss. DTS Neural Surround DownMix creates a natural sounding stereo mix that is spatially true to the original 5.1 mix.
DTS Neural Surround DownMix Key Features Include:
Near-perfect mapping of 5.1 surround elements into the stereo field.
Active correction to fix issues such as comb filtering, spatial location and distortion
The convenience of a matrix surround encode/decode system with the performance of modern day perceptual audio codec’s
Backward compatibility with matrix decoders
The M6205A-3G extracts, processes, and re-embeds the audio providing two SDI outputs with the embedded processed audio. In addition the card provides AES copies of the processed audio. The M6205A-3G complies with SMPTE 272M, SMPTE 299M, and SMPTE 424M standards. Cable equalization and reclocking techniques enable the M6205-3G to recover the incoming 3G, SD-SDI or HD-SDI signal reliably. The M6205A-3G is housed in the openGear DFR-8300 series frames.
