German manufacturer Junger Audio has appointed Aspen Media as its exclusive UK distributor, with responsibility for its range of digital audio dynamics processors including Level Magic.

Buckinghamshire-based Aspen Media is an independent professional audio supplier with a customer base that includes the BBC, The London Studios, Lime Pictures and Tandberg TV.

The company specialises in supplying niche audio products.

Junger Audio international sales and marketing manager Marc Judor said: “Aspen Media’s expertise in the pro audio and broadcast industries makes them an exceptionally good fit for our product base. As a company, Jünger Audio places strong emphasis on customer service and after sales support and we are delighted that Aspen Media shares this philosophy.”

Among the products that Aspen Media will represent is the Level Magic Loudness control technology used by Discovery Channel, MediaCorp, Canal +, Astro and RTL.

The adaptive level control algorithm is based on a combination of an automatic gain control, a transient processor for fast changes and a “look ahead” Peak Limiter for continuous unattended control of programme material.

It is capable of dealing with any in or out digital or analogue source as well as SDI, HD/SDI and 5.1.
