A Word From Our Podcast Sponsor
NUGEN Audio provides advanced audio solutions for post-production and broadcast, including upmixing, loudness management, metering and correction.
NUGEN’s loudness meter, VisLM, has become the industry standard for loudness. Using an industry standard gives you confidence and peace of mind. With a full set of international and regional presets, VisLM is ready to go immediately. For legacy, station specific and internal specifications, VisLM can be fully configured to handle any situation.
VisLM was recently updated to support the Netflix Audio Mix Specifications & Best Practices. Because audio for Netflix is largely hinged on dialog, NUGEN introduced a Netflix preset for more in-depth analysis of dialog loudness.
