Gentner Electronics Corp., 1826 Research Way, has released Lazer, a completely digital FM limiter/stereo generator, which has been in the research and development stage for two years.
Company officials said Lazer provides FM stations with the most up-to-date processing technology available. Gentner has combined its expertise in digital signal processing with its audio processing knowledge to create the first all digital on-air audio processing system.The new unit creates left and right stereo audio channels for FM broadcasting stations and allows them to broadcast clean and undistorted stereo audio without exceeding modulation limits specified by the Federal Communications Commission.
Since the advent of compact discs, radio stations have been investing heavily in digitally recorded audio to enhance their sound. Lazer helps stations retain the sound quality of CDs and other digital broadcast sources, company officials said.
