Salsa Sound launch MIXaiR 2 as cloud-based automix system
Posted on: Tuesday 23rd of November 2021
Salsa Sound has upgraded its MIXaiR system. The AI-driven automix software for pitch/court-based sporting events, enables you to automatically create an immersive listening experience using standard mic setups without the need for tracking or manual operation.
It does this by analysing the signals of multiple inputs and adjusting accordingly to its sports-specifc ‘trained’ AI. The system can also be set up to automatically manage crowd, commentary and AUX-in feeds outputting as many different mix variants required – in formats such as stereo, 5.1, NGA, B-format – with each mix is normalised to your required loudness standard to ensure compliance with the target platform’s regulations.
This new version of MIXaiR transitions the technology from a 1U hardware-based offering to a pure software solution, supporting all the major operating systems (MacOS, Linux, Windows, etc.) as well as VMs and major cloud platforms. This creates a scalable solution that can be deployed onsite, as part of a remote production workflow, over IP or in the cloud – with an AI that the company says has been “trained” using hundreds of hours of content from English Premier League and Championship games, to create a system that automatically recognises the significant audio moments in the game and can even automatically reduce profanity from pitch-side mics getting into the broadcast.
