CEDAR Trinity Enhance
We live in a world where an increasing amount of evidential material is recorded every day, much of it captured on smart phones, CCTV systems and similar devices. These recordings tend to have one thing in common: background and environmental noise, making wanted speech difficult to understand, or at worst, unintelligible. To improve this, CEDAR has released Trinity Enhance, the advanced filtering developed for the CEDAR Trinity surveillance system, now available as an AAX, AU, VST2 and VST3 plug-in.
Trinity Enhance is simple to use but nonetheless an effective audio forensic toolkit comprising four related processes that suppress noise and enhance speech to increase intelligibility.
- Motor removes steady noises such as engine rumble, mains hum, air conditioners and fans.
- Noise reduces broadband noise.
- Background makes background sounds appear louder relative to the foreground.
- Speech enhances speech signals relative to other types of sound.
Trinity Enhance allows even novice users to clean difficult material to a standard that would have seemed impossible a few years ago, and although designed primarily for speech enhancement in the forensic laboratory, it can also be used to clean audio such as interviews and reports intended for broadcast.
Trinity Enhance is available from authorised forensic and surveillance dealer channel or, in other territories, direct from CEDAR Audio, and is authorised using the iLok and CEDAR HSP dongles.
Mac users require an iLok, whereas PC users require a CEDAR HSP dongle.
Existing dongles for CEDAR Studio and the CEDAR Trinity surveillance system may be used.
