CEDAR Cambridge v11

CEDAR Cambridge

28 September 2016

CAMBRIDGE, UK: CEDAR Audio is proud to announce the release of CEDAR Cambridge v11, which includes three new forensic audio enhancement, dialogue noise suppression and restoration modules to complement nearly 30 other processes in what is already the world's most powerful noise reduction and audio restoration system.

The accent is on simplicity of operation and speed of use. Each of the new processes requires the minimum of setup and adjustment, where possible offering Learn and Auto functions to determine the optimum processing parameters. Consequently, CEDAR Cambridge v11 is not only the most effective system, it is also the simplest to use to obtain outstanding results for audio forensics, in archives and libraries, for post-production, and for pre-mastering of difficult material.

CEDAR Cambridge Trinity Enhance   CEDAR Cambridge DNS Two   CEDAR Cambridge Declip-2

Derived from the CEDAR Trinity surveillance system supplied to law enforcement and security agencies, Trinity Enhance has been designed specifically for audio forensic use. It provides four related tools that, using just four sliders, allow users to suppress background noise, reveal voices and increase the intelligibility of speech. It also allows you to enhance the background if that contains wanted detail. It's incredibly quick and simple to use, and allows even novice users to clean difficult material to a standard that would have seemed impossible just a few years ago.

 

A huge success within the DNS 2™ hardware unit released earlier in 2016, the newly developed algorithm in DNS Two has already proved to be the quickest, simplest and most effective dialogue noise suppressor ever developed. In almost all cases, using DNS Two is as simple as switching on LEARN (which allows the algorithm to calculate and adapt to the changing noise contained within the signal and determine suitable noise reduction parameters) and then adjusting the attenuation to obtain the desired amount of noise reduction.

 

Declip-2 replaces and greatly improves upon the original Declip algorithm supplied up until CEDAR Cambridge V10. As before, the process identifies and removes most instances of clipping in a single real- time pass but now, with its new, adaptive Auto mode (which identifies the clipping point and even tracks changes in the amplitude at which clipping occurs) eliminating the distortion and restoring the original dynamic range of the signal is as simple as clicking on the Auto button to obtain optimum results. Manual controls are also supplied for tweaking the results if desired.

Host systems

CEDAR Cambridge v11 will be shipped on the latest CEDAR Cambridge Series IV™ host systems running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. It will run successfully on all previous Series IV hosts as well as CEDAR Cambridge Series III™ hardware (with a new video card) running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit or Windows 7 Ultimate Pro. Some earlier systems may support CEDAR Cambridge v11, but performance will be compromised and some features and modules will not be available.

Training

Training courses on all aspects of CEDAR Cambridge v11 (including host systems, real-time processing and rendering modes, batch processing, and the full complement of enhancement, noise reduction and restoration modules) will be offered at CEDAR Audio's premises in the UK. For details of these, please contact clive.osborn@cedaraudio.com or alan.french@cedaraudio.com for details.

Pricing and availability

CEDAR Cambridge v11 will be available following the 141st AES Convention in Los Angeles. Pricing is available upon request. Please contact clive.osborn@cedaraudio.com for details.
