Company will also Present its Halo Upmix Solution for Stereo to 5.1, 7.1 and 3D Upmixing
AMSTERDAM – NUGEN Audio’s Netflix compliance is making quite a splash with post-production audio teams across the globe. Among the many solutions for Netflix-ready workflows is its Loudness Toolkit 2.8, which will be presented at IBC 2019 (Pod F.P37). The company will also feature its Halo Upmix solution for stereo to 5.1, 7.1 and 3D upmixing throughout the show. These essential plug-ins are designed for audio content creators of content being delivered to both Netflix and traditional broadcast/film platforms.
“NUGEN prides itself in providing our customers with solutions that make their projects and workflows more efficient, especially across growing platforms such as Netflix,” says Paul Tapper, CEO, NUGEN Audio.
“Tailoring our products to the specific needs of audio professionals, such as Netflix-ready workflows, enables them to accomplish their full creative vision in a time- and results-oriented manner. We look forward to demonstrating these products at IBC and speaking with our European user-base to find out more about the ways in which our software helps them achieve their goals.”
NUGEN’s Loudness Toolkit 2.8 includes support of Netflix’s Audio Mix Specifications and Best Practices document. This allows users to easily create mixes with Netflix-ready workflows; and they are certainly taking notice. A combination of three highly versatile plug-ins, the Loudness Toolkit includes the VisLM loudness meter, ISL limiter and LM-Correct quick-fix. It also supports native 7.1.2 audio processing and loudness parameters for advanced loudness control and dialogue consistency. The toolkit now includes DynApt for immediate LRA and dynamics correction with dialogue intelligibility preservation and intentional dramatic transition identification. It also provides an updated loudness parameter, Dialogue LRA, and an added flexibility to simultaneously monitor multiple integrated measures.
Halo UpMix is Perfect for all types of production from archive restoration and traditional television, through to the full 7.1 feature-film experience. The software features unique center-channel management with switchable dialogue extraction. It also has an optional 3D immersive extension for Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D (7.1.4) compatibility that facilitates production across cinematic, VR and gaming applications. Powerful real-time analysis of original stereo material identifies and extracts locational cues to naturally extend the panorama. This leaves the inherent character of the original source intact. Downmix compatibility comes assured with the ‘exact’ mode function, which maintains the relationship between original, upmixed and downmixed file versions.
