t IBC2014, DTS demoed the
integration of DTS Headphone:X
technology in castLabs' media
player for Android and iOS.
The new castLabs Headphone:Xenabled player was demonstrated
at
IBC
in
Amsterdam,
September 12-16, 2014.
DTS Headphone:X is an advanced
audio technology that turns an
ordinary pair of headphones
into an impressive, personalised
virtual surround sound system for
mobile devices. The technology
supports stereo, 5.1, 7.1, and
11.1 multi-channel audio, offering
flexibility within the full spectrum
of channel formats.
This new in-app version of DTS
Headphone:X has made it easy
for castLabs to integrate the fully
immersive Headphone:X experience

directly into their mobile media player.
castLabs, a digital video technology
and services company, is the first
to integrate the DTS Headphone:X
technology as a software solution
for mobile media players.
"Our clients are constantly looking
for compelling innovations that
advance the delivery of high-quality
video and audio content. Integrating
DTS Headphone:X technology into
our media player SDK equips our
content delivery partners to deliver
premium surround sound audio
experiences to end users. That's
a win for the entire ecosystem,"
said Michael Stattmann, CEO and
Managing Director of castLabs.
"Our work with DTS ensures that
we remain at the forefront of digital
content creation and distribution
technologies. We're very excited

about our continuing partnership."
In addition to enabling fully
immersive surround sound via
headphones on mobile devices,
the DTS Headphone:X technology
also includes several unique
customisation features:
Personalisation, which allows
users to create unique listening
profiles based on their personal
listening preferences;
DTS Headphone:X Headphone
Tuning program that enables
headphone manufacturers to
enhance their products for use with
content that is encoded using the
DTS Headphone:X technology;
Room modelling which simulates
the acoustic characteristic of the

original mixing studio.
"As the number of consumers
enjoying video and audio content
on mobile devices continues
to rise, their expectations for
premium sound quality are rising
as well," said Geir Skaaden, Sr.
Vice President, Digital Content
and Media Solutions for DTS.
"The castLabs integration ensures
that content creators, distributors
and device manufacturers have
the tools necessary to deliver
entertainment content that offers
customers the best possible
entertainment experience."
The in-app SDK is now available
for both Android and iOS.

Fairlight Launches QUANTUM.Live TT Console
I

BC2014 saw Fairlight launch its
QUANTUM.Live Table-Top (TT),
the newest addition to Fairlight's
live console family that includes
the award winning EVO.Live digital
audio mixing system.

touch of a button, delivering an
exceptional return on investment
as customers are effectively getting
two consoles in one.
Designed
for the most
demanding
on-air and live
productions,
Fairlight's
Live family
is a highly
flexible

The entry level
QUANTUM.Live TT
will join Fairlight's
Live line-up

console
range, available
from 12 to 60 faders,
as standalone chassis, InSurface modules and Table-Top
configurations.
The entry level QUANTUM.Live TT
is the smallest console in Fairlight's
Live line-up.
It comes with faders

Based on Fairlight's leading
edge audio processing and
control surface hardware, their
groundbreaking range of live
consoles can switch between
live and post-production at the

accommodating 144 signal paths
over 12 layers. It delivers fast tactile
access and full command over two
monitor systems. A second TT
frame can be added, increasing
the system to 24 faders.
At the core of all Fairlight's Live
consoles is an incredibly powerful
audio processing engine designed
with FPGA (Field Programmable
Gate Array) technology. The Audio
Processor combines: Fairlight's
renowned Crystal Core engine;
a redundant power supply; all
interfaces for control screens,
GPIOs, storage; local control
room I/O; MADI
connections for
remote I/O; and other
system hardware.
A QUANTUM.Live Table
Top base configuration boasts
12 faders, a centre section, audio
processing engine with 48 channels,
32 buses and a full complement of
local audio I/O.
Also announced during IBC2014
was Fairlight's second generation
Crystal Core (CC-2) technology.
Hailed as the most powerful
post-production audio engine ever
created, CC-2 incorporates 1000
playback channels, 100+ output

buses and 100 live inputs.
In keeping with Fairlight's long
tradition of seamless upgrade
paths, CC-2 is compatible with
the audio hardware currently
operating with the company's
established CC-1 engine.
Fairlight's CC-2 engine features
a processor chip that is five times
more powerful than the chip in its
CC-1 engine. It also has four times
the PCIe bandwidth, new dual
channel memory architecture, an
on-board expansion slot and almost
twice the MADI connectivity.
Fairlight's V5 software has
advanced to a full 64-bit application,
allowing unrestricted access to
the full power of Intel's latest
processors. The associated increase
in memory and speed delivers more
simultaneous plug-ins, more video
formats and larger media files. When
used in combination with CC-2, this
platform delivers faster than realtime, offline mixdown.
Also developed a part of the
new 64-bit architecture is a brand
new video engine, leveraging GPU
acceleration for real-time video
processing, offering support 4K
video resolution and features builtin HEVC decoding.
