The Linear Acoustic® ARC (Automatic Realtime Control) television loudness processor was created for customers who want Linear Acoustic quality but don’t need the ability to handle 5.1-channel or coded audio, including sub-channels in the U.S. and many global markets.
Right Features, Right Price
ARC features Linear Acoustic’s APTO® loudness adaptation algorithm for viewer-pleasing audio that remains compliant to all global loudness standards, including ATSC A/85 and EBU R-128, with user-defined target and true-peak levels. In addition to HD/SD-SDI and AES-3 I/O, ARC offers AES67 to provide native support for SMPTE ST 2110-30 workflows. The v1.2 update adds SNMP plus three types of logging:
- Rolling 6-hour loudness logs for each program
- Loudness Event Log to identify any loudness issues
- System Event Log for logging overall system health
