At BVE 2017, Nugen Audio will be demonstrating their latest innovations in their family of post-production and broadcast audio tools. On display for the first time at BVE, Nugen Audio will showcase its AMB modular batch processor, a scalable loudness analysis, correction, and upmix solution as well as an update of Halo Upmix, Nugen Audio's award-winning 5.1, 7.1, and 9.1 upmixer.
Halo Upmix Update — Stereo-to-5.1/7.1/9.1 Upmixer
Nugen Audio will demonstrate the latest update to Halo Upmix, the company's solution for upmixing stereo audio to 5.1/7.1/9.1 surround. This update includes algorithmic improvements designed to enhance multichannel-to-multichannel mix and upmix adjustments using the Halo Upmix technologies to further enhance existing surround recordings.
Watch this video when I caught up with Paul Tapper from Nugen Audio at BVE in London last year and got the first preview of the new 9.1 capable version of their Halo Upmix plug-in.
In this video I got an exclusive preview of the Nugen Audio Halo Upmix plug-in before it was released. Does it deliver? Watch and find out.
You can also learn how Nugen Audio's Halo Upmix saved the day for a client of Pro Tools Expert team member Alan Sallabank.
Nugen Audio's Halo Umix plugin has been nominated for a Cinema Audio Society Outstanding Product Awards for Post-Production and we will hear if they are successful on February 18th.
New at BVE 2017 - AMB Processor
Nugen Audio will be showing their brand new AMB Processor at BVE for the first time. AMB is designed to be a powerful new solution which radically expands on the concept of NUGEN Audio's loudness management batch processing technology (LMB) for high-speed audio loudness measurement and correction.
AMB enables post-production facilities to speed workflows significantly and reduce delivery times for a range of different tasks, with separate modules available for upmixing and loudness management. AMB will also offer new features including threaded algorithm processing and multiple processing threads that are addressable for simultaneous parallel handling of files and queues. Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, Nugen Audio told us...
Our loudness processing is the fastest in its class, offering a highly efficient and cost-effective batch-file solution that meets audio professionals' most demanding requirements. AMB significantly increases these capabilities to give customers batch processing options for more of our award-winning, workflow-enhancing technologies.
AMB has been designed to offer complete scalability, allowing post-production facilities of all sizes to add the exact processing modules they need and tailor the system to their specific requirements. Examples include extensions to repurpose content for LRA or to process audio within MXF or .mov files.
AMB comes standard with two watch folders/processing queues. If users need extra power and speed, the AMB Queue Expansion provides additional watch folders/processing queues. A total of up to 16 AMB Queue Expansions can be added.
As standard, the base AMB module will include two independent processing threads that optimize workflows by allowing two simultaneous processes to run in parallel. For even greater speed and efficiency, users can add the AMB Thread Expansion to activate additional processing threads up to a total of 16.
