BELAR ELECTRONICS will use the 2015 NAB SHOW to debut a series of Automatic Delay Correction. The demos will showcase the flexible deployment options of BELAR’s HD Radio™ diversity delay/time alignment solution in partnership with recognized industry brands such as GATESAIR, NAUTEL and WHEATSTONE.
BELAR’s Automatic Delay Correction software provides a simple and cost-effective way to eliminate delay between digital and analog signals in the blending areas of HD Radio coverage. The software consistently measures the FM/HD time alignment, and precisely controls the roughly eight-second delay between HD and analog FM programming to ensure a pleasant listening experience.
“High-end audio processors today from companies like WHEATSTONE, OMNIA and ORBAN typically include a delay line, or can integrate one through software updates,” BELAR CEO MARK GRANT said. “However, those with well-functioning older high-end processors, or other less feature-rich processors, typically do not have or cannot integrate a delay line. In these cases, companies like GATESAIR and NAUTEL offer an especially valuable service via connectivity with their HD exporters.”
