Germany-based Cinegy GmbH will include Linear Acoustic loudness processing solutions in its asset management, ingest and playout software products as part of a strategic OEM agreement. The integration provides improved listening experiences for consumers across a range of media formats, while ensuring compliance with international requirements including EBU R128 regarding loudness levels in broadcast television content.

Its adaptive algorithm enhances the listening experience, improves dialog intelligibility, helps prevent listening annoyance and, while retaining the original sound quality and creative intent, provides uncompromised loudness consistency with full regulatory compliance across all platforms. Linear Acoustic APTO includes APTO.file for file-based processing and for real-time processing.
