At IBC 2018 in Amsterdam, Nugen Audio will be previewing a significant update to its Loudness Toolkit on stand 8.D56. Loudness Toolkit 2.8 will provide a new loudness parameter, Dialogue LRA as well as new flexibility to simultaneously monitor multiple integrated measurements.
VisLM Now Fully Netflix Compatible
These updates have been designed to help facilitate an efficient workflow when working with the recent loudness guidelines from producers like Netflix as announced in their best practice document. Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, NUGEN Audio told us today…
“We have worked with broadcasters for quite a few years now to help develop new applications for loudness standards. We continue to take into consideration the feedback and needs of our customers to update our solutions accordingly. Loudness Toolkit 2.8 is an ideal product bundle designed to consistently balance music, dialog and special effects, produce broadcast compliant audio, preserve quality of the original sound and manage live broadcast levels rapidly. Additionally, being able to work within the latest workflow requirements set forward by Netflix gives our customers an edge in producing compliant content.”
