CEDAR Cambridge v12 – new hardware, software & pricing

Posted on: Thursday 13th of September 2018

CEDAR Cambridge Silent 1, is much smaller, much lighter and much more convenient than previous systems. It contains no moving parts (no rotating drives and no fans) so it makes no mechanical noise whatsoever and can be placed in the quietest studios without creating a distraction. Nonetheless, there’s no loss of processing power. While the architecture of the Series IV remains ideal for larger establishments performing batch processing and supporting multiple seats using the system’s networking capabilities, the Silent 1 is optimised for single users, for whom it is as fast and productive as its larger sibling. CEDAR Cambridge v12 also dispenses with the 1U rackmount Timecode Automation Controller, which is no longer necessary for timecode and automation duties. This simplifies setup and reduces the amount of space needed for the system.

New module – Unwrap
Wrapping is an unusual form of clipping distortion where, instead of being flattened at the maximum and minimum amplitudes of the audio format used, samples are wrapped around and appear with the right shape but at the wrong amplitude. This form of distortion only occurs on digital recorders, but has been encountered on devices ranging from small, handheld units such as interview recorders right through to the large, professional recorders used in the film and broadcast industries. The audible consequence of wrapping is a loud and aggressive form of distortion that can obliterate the wanted signal and seemingly render a recording completely useless.

New module – Declickle 3
Replaces and greatly improves upon the Declickle algorithm supplied on systems up to CEDAR Cambridge v11. It offers improved detection and removal of clicks and crackle in the presence of musical transients, removing the unwanted sounds in a more transparent fashion than ever before. It looks identical with previous versions so there is no learning to be done; it simply offers better results. When upgrading to CEDAR Cambridge v12, Declickle 3 is provided as a free upgrade to owners of Declickle 2.

New process management
Combines all of the features found within the Process Manager and File Processing pages of previous versions. This makes it much quicker and simpler to use, shortening the learning curve and making the system even more productive than before.

Other new features include time slipping of one track against another. This allows operators to line up recordings, which will be of particular interest to users of the cross-channel adaptive filters. There’s also the introduction of file sequences, which allows users to open sequences of files in a chain that can be saved as a single file. Useful for compiling material, this will also be of great interest to forensic users whose original audio may have been saved as a string of short snippets.

More affordable
To complement the new software architecture and new hardware, the CEDAR Cambridge price list has been updated, making many of the options more affordable, and making it possible for customers to get started with a small system for a much lower entry price.
