Cedar Audio DNS 8 Live


Television Film Services is pleased to offer the latest Cedar Audio DNS 8Live

CEDAR’s Dynamic Noise Suppression technology is the standard for removing background noise from dialogue. With near-zero latency, 40-bit processing, and a fast, intuitive user interface, it eliminates traffic noise, air conditioning, wind, rain, babble and general background noise from audio signals. It will also help to compensate for unfavourable acoustic conditions and poor microphone placement, and will even suppress excessive reverberation.

Seamless integration

The DNS 8 Live is the first DNS designed specifically for live use. With eight simultaneous channels of dialogue noise suppression (formatted as AES3 on XLR sockets plus DB25 using the AES59 pin-out) it hosts a new DNS algorithm boasting a simplified ’2-knob’ approach as well as a detailed editing mode that offers more control than any previous dialogue noise suppressor. Nonetheless, it retains the near-zero latency of all its predecessors, making it suitable for use in all live situations – not just live-to-air broadcasting, but also live sound in venues such as theatres, concert halls, conferences venues, and places of worship.

But that’s not the limit of the features offered by the DNS 8 Live. Recognising that many people will want to use it where there’s no ready access to mains power, we have added a standard 4-pin 12VDC input.
