DNS1000 dynamic noise suppressor
Specifically designed for film production, dubbing, OB, and studio noise suppression, the DNS1000 dynamic noise suppressor is the world's most successful digital noise suppression system
Now discontinued. For the current version, see CEDAR DNS1500
Developed for audio engineers working in post and dubbing, the DNS1000 is specifically designed to remove background noise from recorded and live dialogue. It can be an essential tool for dubbing, post, noisy studios and outside broadcast.
If you work with dialogue, the speed, flexibility, and ease of use of the DNS1000 provides solutions to audio problems that you could not previously solve. Furthermore, the DNS1000's near-zero latency means that you do not need to slip the audio against time-code, making it possible to use the DNS1000 in real-time on the dubbing stage. For location sound engineers (who do not have the luxury of random access to the material) the near-zero latency means that the DNS1000 is simple to use with video, and removes the need for a video frame store.
Furthermore, the combination of low latency and 24-bit fidelity means that you can leave the DNS1000 permanently in the signal chain without fear of signal degradation. And in the audio forensic laboratory, the DNS1000 can remove motor noise from small covert recorders, eliminate electrical interference, and help to clean up recordings suffering from unfavourable acoustics and poor microphone locations.
In February 2005, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences® honoured CEDAR's Senior Engineer, Dr Christopher Hicks, and CEDAR's Engineering Director, Mr Dave Betts, with a Academy Award for the design and implementation of the CEDAR DNS1000. Already a studio standard for eliminating background noises such as traffic and air conditioning, the CEDAR DNS1000 hardware unit also won SSAIRA and PAR Awards in 2000 and 2001, and was nominated for a TEC Award in 2001.
