BVE 2016: Nugen to introduce audio tool updates

Nugen Audio will demonstrate the latest updates to its family of post-production and broadcast audio tools at this year’s BVE Show, taking place at London’s ExCel Centre later this month.

Nugen will unveil several updates for its Loudness Management Batch (LMB) Processor’s extensions, including improved LRA correction speed for the DynApt Extension and wider file format support for the ProRes Extension, which now supports .MOV files using Version 2 descriptors and those with the LPCM format flag. Channel support for the LMB Processor has been increased from 16 to 32 channels when advanced routing is used for both the MXF Extension and ProRes Extension. These updates will be available at no charge to current owners.

Nugen will also demonstrate a new Adobe Premiere integration for its LM-Correct 2 loudness quick-fix tool. For the first time, Premiere Pro users will have LM-Correct at their fingertips to help them adhere to any worldwide loudness standard at up to 100 times faster than real time. Using Adobe’s Common Extensibility Platform (CEP), Nugen has created a fully integrated CEP panel for LM-Correct 2. This means Nugen’s loudness analysis and correction can now be run from a simple panel within Adobe Premiere, without requiring users to leave the editing environment.

Finally, Nugen will be showing Halo Upmix, the company’s solution for upmixing stereo audio to 5.1/7.1 surround, at BVE 2016. The first product based on Nugen’s proprietary new upmixing processes, Halo Upmix has received much critical acclaim since its launch last September at IBC 2015 in Amsterdam, where it won the Audio Media Best of Show award. In addition, Nugen will be demonstrating a forthcoming 9.1 extension to Halo Upmix, which will provide compatibility with Dolby Atmos bed tracks and is projected for release Q2 2016.
