The Cedar Cambridge is a 64-bit, high-resolution processing platform that offers a wide range of tools for speech enhancement and audio restoration. Applications include powerful speech enhancement for audio forensics and security, high-volume restoration and enhancement for libraries and archives, and simple, rapid noise control and audio processing for broadcast and mastering.
Completely modular, fully automated when desired, and capable of integration with today's asset management systems, it can process up to 100 times faster than real-time (or more, depending upon hardware), can support multiple users, and can process huge bodies of material quickly and efficiently. The system will also integrate with MAM systems and can generate reports for every track that it processes so that the audio and its associated metadata can be added efficiently to users' databases.
The Cedar Cambridge Silent 1 is the host system of choice for individual users. It's a compact, light and convenient solution that contains no moving parts so that, as the name says, it's truly silent. Its architecture is optimized for single-user configurations and, when used this way, it can be faster than the larger Series IV host.
With Version 13 of the Cambridge, Cedar introduced INR, a real-time Impulse Noise Reduction module that was developed as a more powerful alternative to Declickle. It digs deeper into the signal to remove clicks and noise bursts that Declickle cannot. While its primary use is in the forensic arena, it can also be used for badly degraded commercial audio such as optical sound tracks with noisy clicks and bursts.
Also introduced in Version 13 are two features for the Retouch spectral editor: Match and Repair. Unlike conventional restoration tools, where unwanted sounds have to be manually and individually identified before processing, Match allows the user to find an unwanted sound somewhere in the spectrum, and use machine learning algorithms to identify future instances of that sound automatically.
Repair uses a clever bit of artificial intelligence to achieve precisely the edit you need. Just mark the sound and some of the surrounding signal and then use the single knob to suppress it or even completely eliminate it. Only the significant signal within the region is identified and processed; all low level signals as well as the ambience are left unaffected. Alternatively, you may have a clip in which there's something - for example, a quiet word or some other understated sound - that you might like to bring to the foreground. Repair allows you to do this too. Just amplify the event while leaving the rest of the signal unaffected.
PDF reporting allows users to output reports as standard PDF files as well as the HTML files and XML files that can be used to generate bespoke databases and reports. This is particularly useful if you're using multi-region processing with the reporting system as a transcription system. You can also generate individual reports for every track processed by the Batch Processor and send these to the destinations of your choice.
