Publish date:

First to bring adaptive noise reduction hardware to broadcast market NAB Radio Show– Austin, TX, Booth 226 (Sept 17, 2008) – iZotope, Inc., a leading innovator in audio signal processing technology, is now shipping their highly anticipated ANR-B™ Adaptive Real-time Noise Reduction Unit, bringing the company’s renowned audio algorithm for adaptive noise reduction to a dedicated hardware unit for use in real-time broadcast applications. “Broadcasters face real-time noise challenges ranging from cell phone call-ins to noisy air conditioners and bad wiring,� says Mark Ethier, CEO of iZotope, Inc. “ANR-B automates the process of high-quality noise reduction in real-time so noise issues no longer make or break a segment.� ANR-B uses iZotope’s advanced noise reduction technology to intelligently identify and suppress environmental broadband noise, hum, phone line artifacts and more, dramatically increasing the quality of radio and TV call-in programs and on-location broadcasting. Unlike other noise reduction solutions, iZotope’s ANR-B actually detects noise in real-time and adapts to changing noise over time, allowing for automatic operation with little to no input required from the user. WGBH Boston, America’s preeminent public broadcasting producer, has been employing one of the first ANR-B units in its state of the art facility to produce the renowned radio program “The World,� a co-production of Public Radio International and the BBC. “At WGBH Radio our reporters and guests are often interviewed in war zones and some of the most remote locations on Earth," says Ray Fallon, Engineer at WGBH. "These places are only accessible by phone line, ISDN and satellite phone, leading to audio quality that is far below the standard for our award winning news radio programs. iZotope’s ANR-B reliably and quickly removes ambient and path noise automatically, allowing us to focus on getting the interview completed instead of fiddling with controls to get usable audio." Pricing and Availability ANR-B is now available for $4,995 MSRP. For ordering information, visit
