iZotope announced at IBC 2010 the licensing of their 64-bit Sample Rate Conversion Engine (SRC) to Soundminer for integration into their new HD Plus Asset Management System and is also scheduled to be added to an upcoming release of their noted V4/V4pro product.

The partnership will provide Soundminer customers with world-class quality sample rate conversion and improved file transfer speeds with efficient operation for low demand on processing (CPU) power.

“By partnering with iZotope to enhance our batch processing, we were able to more than double our transfer speeds,” said Steve Pecile, President of Soundminer.  “iZotope’s technology allowed us to achieve these results without compromising the level of quality our customers expect.”

Soundminer is an advanced search engine, a highly advanced conversion engine, an integrated metadata management tool, an advanced sound design tool, a DSP processing host, a scalable product line that includes server, enterprise and web portal options, and it is designed to work directly with the most popular production tools in the industry.

Soundminer users include sound editors, music editors, content creators, music publishers, composers, broadcasters, audio studios, gamers, radio stations, and film and TV studios.

“Soundminer provides an excellent platform to showcase what iZotope’s technology can do for broadcast, post-production and sound design professionals worldwide,” said Alex Westner, Business Development Manager at iZotope.

iZotope’s 64-bit Sample Rate Conversion Engine features continuous control over pre-ringing and post ringing and a steep low-pass filter for alias-free operation and maximum frequency retention.

It operates with 64-bit, double precision internal processing for minimal noise and is known for its highly efficient real-time operation, which means less CPU usage for end-users.

iZotope 64-bit SRC supports unlimited sample rates and is intended for professional audio production, broadcast production, sound card drivers, audio encoders, codecs, and decoders, A/D and D/A converters as well as scientific applications.
