CEDAR adds Phase Corrector Module to its CEDAR for Windows platform

1 October 1997

CEDAR Audio Ltd announces the imminent release of its latest Phase/Time (Azimuth) Corrector module.

Developed from the CEDAR-20 Phase/Time Corrector software, also implemented on the AZ-1 Azimuth Corrector, the WIN5: Azimuth Corrector becomes the fifth CEDAR process to be re-coded to run on the CEDAR for Windows platform. The new module features improved auto-detection algorithms, Lissajous and Balance metering, eighteen output modes, and offers auto-correction to within 0.25 samples. A manual control allows users to slide channels against each other with a precision of 0.01 samples. These facilities allow audio engineers to recover high frequencies, improve bass response, restore mono compatibility, and clarify imaging that can not be corrected by other methods.

The beta-test version will be installed at Digital Sound & Picture (New York) during the AES Convention. Bill Lacey, President, says, `CEDAR's Phase Correctors are indispensable, particularly when summing to mono, and many clients can not believe the audio improvements that they make possible. I have had two of the DOS-based CEDAR-20 Phase/Time Corrector modules installed for more than three years, and have used them to help restore many Elvis, Jefferson Airplane, Harry Nilsson, and Glenn Miller albums. I also used them extensively on Grammy Award-winning Heifitz CDs and the Grammy-nominated Frank Sinatra/Tommy Dorsey box set. I am very excited to be the first to have access to the new algorithms on my CEDAR for Windows systems.'

CEDAR's existing Phase/Time Correctors and AZ-1 modules are widely used in the Music, TV, and Radio industries, as well as in National Archives and Libraries worldwide. They are also to be found in audio forensic laboratories. Current users include: Sony Music Studios (New York), Masterfonics (Nashville), Q-Tec (Tokyo), RAI Radiotelevisione (Rome), the ABC (Sydney), Norwegian Broadcasting (Oslo), Bayerischer Rundfunk (Munich), The Library of Congress (Washington DC), The British Library National Sound Archive (London), and The New Zealand Police (Wellington).
