October 18th Meeting: Wheatstone HD Audio Alignment and Other Tricks

Keeping your FM station’s IBOC digital audio time-aligned with your analog audio has been a source of frustration since digital was introduced. At one time, this meant manual adjustments until you could no longer perceive the difference, perhaps using a headphone with one stereo side in digital and the other in analog. Then along came separate boxes to attempt alignment, but that introduced another single point of audio failure into your system.

Wheatstone’s Mike Erickson, one of the country’s most renowned processor experts, comes to Chapter 36 to talk about the AirAura processor and how it addresses HD time alignment and other FM challenges with a correction input from a Belar monitor. He can also answer some of your processor set-up questions.

Join us Wednesday, October 18th at noon at iHeartMedia, 9660 Granite Ridge Drive, San Diego for lunch courtesy of Wheatstone and a presentation. Lunch and learn with us.
