In this week’s Production Expert podcast, brought to you with the support of Nugen Audio, James, Julian and Alan ask whether legacy hardware represents good value for money or is just a way to paint yourself into a corner. They also answer your questions and share their finds of the week.
A Word From Our Sponsor
Our friends at Nugen Audio provide advanced audio solutions for post-production and broadcast, including upmixing, loudness management, metering and correction.
When it comes to loudness measurement, Nugen’s loudness meter, VisLM, has become an industry standard for loudness. With a full set of international and regional presets, VisLM is ready to go out of the box. For legacy, station specific and internal specifications, VisLM can be fully configured to handle any situation.
VisLM has been recently updated to support the Netflix Audio Mix Specifications & Best Practices. Because audio for Netflix is largely hinged on dialog, Nugen introduced a dedicated Netflix preset to help with a more in-depth analysis of dialog loudness.
