Digital audio signal processing software maker iZotope announced today a new metering suite for postproduction and broadcast applications. The new software, Insight, gives audio engineers a customizable and scalable solution for monitoring information, with a user interface aimed at allowing users to take a deep look into their audio and analyze it with intelligent tools in real-time. The software is structured to conform to current broadcast standards, and features meters for immediate loudness calculation and True Peak detection.
Time Warner Cable on Monday confirmed its plans to buy Insight Communications. The $3 billion deal gives it control of TV, Internet access, and more across 750,000 homes in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio. CEO Glenn Britt claimed the deal, which took Insight out of the hands primarily of private investors like the Carlyle Group, would give it a "well-run, technologically advanced" cable network.
Time Warner is about to try and consolidate the cable industry further by buying Insight, a last-minute leak brought out Sunday night. The deal would buy Insight out from the Carlyle Groupe for $3 billion and absorb the cable provider's debts. Final bidding had wrapped up at the start of the July, WSJ said, and the new deal was just Insight reaching a promised target of picking a winning buyer within a month's time.
