Radio/Tele FFH Invests
In Orban Audio Processors
I

n total, Radio/Tele
FFH operates eight
OPTIMOD 8600 Audio
Processors; six are used
for
the
regionalised
transmission paths of Hit
Radio FFH for the areas
Kassel, Fulda, Gie├čen,
Wiesbaden,
Darmstadt
and Bad Vilbel; one is used
for the transmission feed
of planet radio; and one for harmony.
fm.
"We decided to buy the OPTIMOD
8600 amongst other reasons because
of the MX Limiter technology. This
feature is only available in the 8600
and the newer 8700i OPTIMOD
processors," said Harald Caplier,
who is responsible for audio/
system engineering at Radio/Tele
FFH. "Besides that, we can use the
OPTIMODs for our FM transmission
signals and simultaneously for audio
processing of the internet streaming
channels."

The Planet Radio studio

In addition to the OPTIMOD 8600s,
Radio/Tele FFH uses three OPTIMOD
5500i's for monitoring the respective
on-air signal of the programmes with
very low latency. If necessary, these
units can also be used as backup
for the FM audio processing simply
by switching a preset. For the DAB+
transmission paths and the satellite
transmission paths, six OPTIMOD
6300s, which are especially designed
for processing digital formats such as
DAB+, were purchased. The four web
radios; FFH+ 80er, FFH+ 90er, FFH+

CHARTS and FFH+ ROCK are
processed with the OPTIMODPC 1101e, a Windows PC audio
card with sound processing.
"Besides the high reliability
of
the
Orban
products
we really appreciate the
excellent cooperation with
the manufacturer. Peter van
Beusekom from Orban supports
us at any time when we have
questions and you can feel his passion
for the products and sound processing
in general," said Caplier. "Once a year
my colleague Kai Miska, myself, and
Peter van Beusekom meet in Bad Vilbel
to do some software updates, check
the sound of our programmes and, if
possible, even improve the sound a bit
further."
In addition to the manufacturer, the
team of Radio/Tele FFH is supported by
the company AUDIO PRO HEILBRONN
Elektroakustik, who is also distributing
the OPTIMOD Audio Processors in
Germany.

Avid Boosts Pro Tools Video Support
A

vid recently unveiled the newest
version of Pro Tools at AES 2019
in New York.
Pro Tools 2019 will support higher
video resolutions and frame rates,
giving users the highest precision when
editing and mixing sound to picture,
smoother
collaboration
between
editorial and sound mixing, and
streamlined end-to-end audio postcreative workflows.
"The latest Pro Tools 2019 update
allows audio professionals to work on
the same high-resolution video used
in Media Composer (video editing
software) within Pro Tools, eliminating
the need for transcoding and file
format or resolution conversion,"
said Rob D'Amico, Director of Product
Marketing for Audio & Video Solutions,
Avid. "This dramatically streamlines
end-to-end audio post-production
workflows, saving time and costly
storage."
With the demand for more highresolution video content to be captured
in 4K, the newest version of Pro Tools
increases the efficiency of sound
editing and engineering teams by

Users can also deliver multiple
mixes in a single WAV file for easier
delivery of localised mixes to streaming
services. With the addition of Pro
Tools into the Netflix Post Technology
Alliance, Avid is now working closely
with Netflix to ensure its solutions
support technical and workflow
requirements today and in the future.
Pro Tools is widely used in music, film
and TV to compose, record, edit, and
mix audio in the studio or in the cloud.
Pro Tools empowers artists, whether
creating and mixing stereo soundtracks
in sync with images, editing audio
timeclips with timecode precision, or
sculpting and shaping audio quickly
when building scenes from scratch.

Pro Tools 2019 supports
higher frame rates

enabling playback and display of 4K
resolution files and higher frame rates.
The flexibility to select frame rates
and resolutions independently, and
work with non-standard video sizes, is
critical to support a range of projects
such as web-based video, gaming, or
new formats that become popular in
the future.
Pro Tools 2019 also improves Dolby
Atmos 'in the box' mixing workflows

and delivery of multiple
mixes in a single file. With
full Core Audio support of the
Dolby Audio Bridge, users
can now send 130 channels
from Pro Tools (up from 32)
to the Dolby Atmos Renderer,
simplifying Dolby Atmos 'in
the box' mixing and playback
workflows with Pro Tools | HDX
and other Core Audio devices.

Greater precision when editing audio to video
