2019 NAB Show: Orban enhances openGear-based platform

The enhanced openGear platform from Orban is now equipped with immersive 11.1 surround audio and streaming to Next Generation Audio (NGA) all within a 2RU rack.

Orban will be displaying its audio processing platform that provides broadcasters the ability to choose a custom-tailored mix of audio processing solutions for their facilities.

Its openGear-based platform, introduced last year, is further enhanced with the inclusion of immersive/3D monitoring and upmixing for multi-channel audio.

The openGear platform brings together hardware and software-defined audio and video solutions not just from Orban, but also from an array of openGear partners. The 19-inch 2RU Orban openGear rack frame has dual redundant power supplies, and a 1GbE port.

It can be equipped with a range of available audio interfaces, including redundant audio-over-IP (AoIP) with compatibility to AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110, USB host and client interfaces as well as MADI, AES/EBU and analogue I/O.

For video interfaces, it can include 8K, 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) and 3G HD/SDI video mix and demux with Dolby AC-3 and Dolby E processing.

David Day, president of Orban, commented: “With the Orban openGear platform, customers can specify a wide range of I/O options and functionality from a significant supplier base, not rely solely on Orban for this capability.

“[We also offer] our customers easy access to Orban’s audio processing technology that 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.”

Orban will be exhibiting at booth N4120.
