Nugen Audio Updates Halo Software With Netflix Preset

Nugen Audio will highlight new updates to its Halo Downmix software which includes a new LFE enable control and LFE filter cutoff control.

Nugen Audio's Halo Downmix software enables precise downmixing of feature-film and 5.1 mixes to stereo projects, delivering accurate downmixes that are no longer limited to typical in-the-box processes. It allows for unprecedented adjustment and provides visual controls for relative levels, timing and direct vs. ambient sound balance. NUGEN Audio also offers an optional 3D Immersive Extension, which adds capability for downmixing 7.1.2 Dolby Atmos bed tracks to 7.1, 5.1 and stereo.

The booth will also highlight a new Audio Management Batch processor extension (AMB) and Loudness Toolkit 2.8. The AMB Enterprise extension expands the features required for larger businesses with automated networked systems, and helps customers integrate the solution more deeply into automated production workflows. AMB is an audio management batch-processing technology with numerous options for high-speed audio loudness measurement and correction, upmixing, dynamics control, decoding and file handling.

The Loudness Toolkit 2.8 provides an updated loudness parameter, Dialogue LRA as well as an added flexibility to simultaneously monitor multiple integrated measures. The Loudness Toolkitworks within the recent loudness guidelines, such as the Netflix best practice document. It includes the VisLM loudness meter, ISL limiter and LM-Correct quick fix tool, supports native 7.1.2 audio processing and loudness parameters for advanced loudness control and dialog consistency. The enhanced toolkit also now includes the DynApt extension.
