CEDAR Cambridge v2.5 with Auto Dehiss and Declickle 2
9 September 2005
CEDAR Cambridge™ v2.5 is a significant upgrade from previous versions, offering two new restoration modules plus numerous upgrades to the core system and facilities. These include improvements to the pre/post operations, multiple levels of Undo and Redo within each module, and significant improvements to the operation of the Event Manager and Automations system.
In the past, digital dehissers that used no fingerprinting or noise reduction profiling were prone to side-effects known as twittering and glugging. On earlier CEDAR processes, it was often possible to avoid these sounds by careful use of the controls, but it has never been possible - until now - to remove broadband noise correctly with almost no user intervention. Today, Auto Dehiss embodies a more advanced algorithm than any previous dehisser. It offers significantly improved performance, and it has a unique Auto mode that enables the software to determine the broadband noise content, removing this without the introduction of unwanted side-effects or artefacts. (Nevertheless, for users that wish to exercise fine control over the noise reduction, we have retained a manual mode that allows you to control all parameters.)
The original Declickle™ algorithm was superb at removing clicks and crackle, but did not dig as deeply into the signal as some users wanted. So we developed Declickle 2™, which is able to detect and remove the grunge that lies deep within the signal, making it possible to clean audio that would otherwise have retained low-level crackle.
Availability and pricing
- The core of CEDAR Cambridge™ v2.5 is available immediately, and is a free upgrade for all existing users.
- Declickle 2™ is a free upgrade to all owners of the original Declickle™ module.
- The retail price for Auto Dehiss is available on request.
- A preferential upgrade path to Auto Dehiss™ is available for all owners of Dehiss-3. Details are available on request.
Dehiss-3™ remains available on CEDAR Cambridge™ v2.5 at a significantly reduced price. This gives owners two price/performance options when specifying the Dehiss function of their CEDAR Cambridge systems.
