Jünger Audio has announced the Flexible Audio Infrastructure flexAI, and audio processing platform designed give broadcasters freedom and flexibility in the audio processing products used for facilities and projects.

Jünger Audio AIXpressorUnlike previous Jünger Audio processors, the AIXpressor hardware unit is not a single product, but acts as a base for software-defined products. Through additional software licences, broadcasters and postproduction facilities can customise the system to suite their requirements for processing capabilities and channel count. The necessary hardware, scales by the actual demand in processing power and will no longer be the defining factor. The system can cascade additional AIXpressors or servers, whenever more processing power or media interfaces become necessary.

All software products created using flexAI will be licenced flexibly, enabling users to readily incorporate additional functionality and increase channel count, and even shift licences between devices. Users who buy a software product license are free to decide exactly how many audio programmes they want to process and what type of processing they want to be installed.

The 19-inch 1U-hjgh device is based on x86 processors and equipped with a comprehensive range of built-in interfaces, including redundant Audio-over-IP with full compatibility to AES67 and SMPTE ST2110, USB host and client interfaces as well as Madi, AES/EBU and analogue I/O. The unit also has four slots for optional interfaces, all of which are compatible with Junger Audio’s existing D*AP series of audio processors. These include 3G/HD/SD SDI, Madi, Audinate Dante and many more. Additional interfaces will become available.

In conjunction with the AIXpressor hardware, the tieLight optical connection is able to transmit up to 1152 audio channels in each direction. TieLight has very low delay and compensated latency, and is used for cascading multiple devices and for setting up larger systems that require several processors. It is an inherent part of the AIXpressor and will be available as a PCIexpress interface card to be used in the forthcoming line of servers.

‘With flexAI, we can create new products independently from our hardware base and give our customers easy access to Jünger Audio’s renowned audio processing technology, which is already the mainstay of many of the world’s top radio and TV broadcasters, IPTV providers, music recording studios and audio post production facilities,’ says Jünger Audio Senior Product Manager, Friedemann Kootz.
