Loudness Toolkit and LMB Processor Update for EBU R128 S1 Compliance
The latest standard update for short-form content such as adverts or promos, EBU R128 S1, will be supported with immediate availability at BVE 2015. NUGEN Audio will launch a series of parameter sets for its highly popular Loudness Toolkit NLE plug-ins and LMB (Loudness Management Batch) Processor software.
Implementing the recommendations illustrated in the new supplement to R128 for short-form content, these downloads simplify and accelerate configuration for those working to the new measures. This update will be available at no charge to the end user.
New Upmixer Technology for Stereo-to-5.1/7.1/9.1 Upmixing
NUGEN Audio will preview a new upmix process specifically designed for film and TV production. Capable of producing a downmix-compatible upmix with optional dialog isolation in the center channel, the new technology is projected to be available in early Q2 2015.
LMB Processor MXF Extension Update for DPP AS-11 Program Compatibility
NUGEN Audio's LMB Processor is an offline, file-based loudness analysis and correction program for high-throughput applications. The MXF Extension for LMB Processor allows automated analysis and loudness correction for the audio essence within MXF files. This MXF Extension has been updated to include DPP AS-11 compatibility with immediate availability. NUGEN Audio is a participant in the DPP compliance program, an initiative founded by U.K. public service broadcasters to help speed the transition to fully digital production and distribution for television. As a member of the AS-11 DPP compliance and certification program, NUGEN Audio is helping to develop quality assurance criteria for the AS-11 DPP specification for digital file formats.
As part of NUGEN Audio's ongoing commitment to maintaining up-to-the-minute standards compliance for its clients, this update will be available at no charge to the customer.
DynApt Extension for LMB Processor (Loudness Management Batch Processor)
Adapting dynamic content such as theatrical releases for TV or TV content for mobile streaming is a challenging task, particularly in relation to dialog. At BVE 2015, NUGEN Audio will present DynApt, Dynamic Adaptation Technology, a groundbreaking solution for intelligent repurposing of audio for TV and streaming at faster-than-real-time speeds. The DynApt algorithm has been designed to adapt the dynamic content of audio appropriately for different listening environments and playout systems while respecting the level of dialog in the original mix and meeting specific loudness criteria. The first implementation of this new technology is now available as a DynApt Extension for NUGEN Audio's LMB Processor, the company's leading offline loudness correction program.
