NUGEN Audio will present its latest innovations in audio and loudness management for film and television post-production at IBC2015 in Amsterdam.
Featured products will include new upmixing technology for surround production, new standards-based loudness measurement capabilities for theatrical trailer production and a new program of floating licensing for mid-sized to large-enterprise customers.
Stereo-to-5.1/7.1 Upmixing Technology
NUGEN Audio has developed a range of proprietary new processes for upmixing stereo audio to 5.1/7.1 surround in TV and film productions.
Combining several technologies including frequency and time domain energy distribution and neural network artificial intelligence, this highly versatile, innovative new process enables producers to target various upmix goals including full stable surrounds, exact downmix matching, and/or full dialog isolation.
The first NUGEN Audio product to include this new technology will be the highly anticipated Halo Upmix tool, which will be announced at IBC2015. Halo Upmix is designed for creating a stereo-to-5.1/7.1 downmix-compatible upmix with optional dialog isolation in the center channel. Halo Upmix will be available in Avid AAX, VST, and AU formats.
Leq(m) Loudness Standard Support
Serving an ever-broader array of professional loudness management applications, NUGEN Audio will introduce Leq(m) measurement into a range of its existing solutions.
Support of Leq(m) provides mission-critical capabilities for audio professionals who work on theatrical trailer production and will complement the extensive ITU loudness measurement capabilities already available in NUGEN Audio loudness products.
With expected availability by IBC2015, Leq(m) functionality will be offered as a free update for NUGEN’s recently announced VisLM-H2 loudness meter, LM-Correct 2 loudness quick fix tool, and LMB processor for batch loudness analysis and correction on multiple files.
New Server-Based Seat Licensing for Mid-Sized to Large Enterprises
Through its service to large broadcast and production organizations over many years, NUGEN Audio has become very familiar with the challenges large operations face when administering multiseat licensing.
In response to this important requirement, NUGEN Audio will deliver cutting-edge server-based seat licensing technology designed to streamline and centralize the license management process for mid- to large-sized clients. This efficiency enhancement will initially be available for all of the company’s loudness products and the new Halo Upmix stereo-to-5.1/7.1 surround upmixer.
