NUGEN AUDIO AMB
For one file, or thousands，AMB is a modular application for Windows and OSX that enables post production facilities to speed up workflows significantly for a range of different tasks, including upmixing and loudness management.AMB provides unprecedented power and control using threaded algorithm processing and multiple processing threads that are addressable for parallel file and queue handling.
Loudness core module
Rapid, file based loudness profiling and correction to ITU-R BS. 1770 (CALM) and EBU R128 standards. Watched folders, warning indicators, along with detailed post-mortem log files and graphing are all managed from a flexible intuitive interface. Easily meet multiple/complex delivery requirements through detailed auto-correct conditions, typically processing files at up to 100x realtime.
Upmix core module
Core technologies from NUGEN Audio’s acclaimed Halo Upmix plug-in are employed for batch processing, providing high-quality, automatic upmixing to 5.1 and 7.1 from stereo and multi-channel sources, with exact downmix compatibility if required.
NUGEN Audio’s award winning technology for loudness-compliant dynamic adaptation, DynApt allows the reduction of dynamics in the audio while avoiding the introduction of dialog clarity issues common in repurposed content. This extension enables LRA targeting and dynamic content repurposing, identifies and respects transitions whilst preserving dialog clarity, and streamlines feature film adaptation for TV, TV for web, and radio for podcast.
ProRes and MXF extensions
With the ProRes module, PCM audio is natively handled within any ProRes or .mov container, leaving video and metadata untouched.With the MXF module, AMB natively handles PCM audio within multipleMXF formats (PCM audio in OP-1a and OP-Atom operating patterns) leaving other data intact, saving time and avoiding potential file conversion errors.
Dolby E extension
Native decoding and encoding of Dolby E files. The Dolby E module enables AMB to decode Dolby E files to PCM audio and/or encode PCM audio to Dolby E, with full Dolby meta data support
Full automation, scripting and reporting in AMB and straightforward MAM integration. The Enterprise extension maximizes efficiency for larger network workflows.Features include email notifications for queue completion and analysis failure, post-processing script execution and cross-platform command line support (OSX/Windows).
The base configuration of AMB accesses two watch folders/queues as standard. Each queue expansion provides an additional watched folder and/or processing queue, up to a total of 16.As standard, the base AMB configuration also includes two independent processing threads that optimize workflows by allowing two simultaneous processes to run in parallel. For even greater power and efficiency, an AMB thread expansion can be added; each instance will activate an extra processing thread up to a total of 16.
