Still Undecided About Going Fully IP?
With major technology changes facing the broadcast industry, Jünger Audio
overcomes the challenges and restores your peace of mind,
reveals Friedemann Kootz, Senior Product Manager...
t is no secret that production and
broadcast technology is undergoing
a major overhaul with media over
IP becoming the big player, while
dedicated interfaces see a slow but
This transition phase may bring
opportunity for all, but it also brings
uncertainty for many.
Seeing the need for large scale
processing systems with cloud
capabilities and load balancing
on demand on one hand, and the
necessity to deliver a future proof
solution that still covers the current
situation on the other, Jünger
Audio has developed flexAI - a
groundbreaking way of approaching
product design. The acronym unravels
to 'Flexible Audio Infrastructure',
underlying idea. flexAI is Jünger
Audio's infrastructure for softwaredefined products enabling us to create
new products on customer demand.
scale and grow with the user's need
for channel count and processing
To expand its scalability even
further and shift it up to hardware
level, flexAI-based products can run
on Jünger Audio's new line of servers
and the AIXpressor, on view for the
first time at this NAB show. AIXpressor
is a powerful 1RU processor with
comprehensive built-in interfaces,
including redundant Audio over IP
and standard IP network ports, MADI,
AES3 and analog inputs and outputs.
Additionally, AIXpressor has four
expansion slots to hold interface cards.
With these capabilities AIXpressor
can easily bridge the gap where
no final decision for a prospective
infrastructure has been reached yet.
Setting up a traditional system with
SDI interfaces for currently installed
systems while preserving all options
to immediately change over to IP is
AIXpressor's biggest strength - and it
goes even further.
If the transition becomes imminent
in your facility, just expand your flexAIbased software product with Jünger
Audio's server processing power and
leave traditional audio interfaces
behind while keeping all settings and
the system setup.
With our software defined products
based on flexAI, it does not matter
what 'electrical means' you choose to
bring in the data.
The new concept of hardwareindependent applications enables
Jünger Audio's R&D team to react
extremely fast to the transforming
demands of the market. With this
strategy we can remain your reliable
partner for traditional broadcast
processors as well as bringing our
previously undiscovered applications.
At NAB, the first software product to
be released based on flexAI will be
Streamtools TS, the most flexible
and powerful transport stream audio
processor you have ever seen.
