Arkona Amps Up BLADE//runner’s Audio Capabilities at NAB 2024

Arkona Technologies GmbH, provider of IP core infrastructure solutions for top-tier broadcast productions, has announced plans to expand its BLADE//runner platform with solutions aimed at audio workflows, specifically mixing and signal processing. Arkona will be demonstrating both an audio mixer available as an option, and a dedicated audio mixer and DSP instance powered by the company’s AT300 FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card (PAC) at NAB in booth SU 6037.

Designed around a highly flexible and modular software framework, BLADE//runner comprises a suite of live broadcast production software and hardware tools for professional productions including audio/video routing, compression, and processing. The platform, designed for facilities where flexibility and scalability are essential, operates on Arkona’s AT300 FPGA PAC. It allows for the creation, control, and deletion of all processing functions on the fly through the Company’s web-based UI, open APIs, as well as through NMOS IS-04/-05.

New AMIX Audio Mixer – New Option for IP Gateway and Router (IPGR)

Arkona is introducing AMIX, an audio mixer available as an option on the Company’s IP Gateway and Router (IPGR) software application. AMIX provides up to 64 mono and 64 stereo mix instances as well as the ability to easily create mix-minus (N-1) feeds. AMIX easily replaces sub-mixers for any size production while simultaneously performing IP and SDI video processing including routing, colour correction, HDR-SDR colour-space conversion, etc.

New IP Audio Engine (IPA) – Taking It Further

Arkona is cranking up BLADE//runner’s audio capabilities by making a new IP Audio Engine (IPA) application comprised of a dedicated audio mixer and DSP available on the AT300 PAC. With a total capacity of up to 16,384 mono audio inputs and 12,288 outputs the IPA offers compression and multi-band equalisers with true peak monitoring and loudness metering in addition to mono, stereo, and multi-channel mixes. Capable of handling up to 8192 faders it’s powerful enough to support mixing for the most demanding live broadcast events.
