Nugen To Introduce Loudness Toolkit For Netflix At IBC

At IBC, Nugen Audio will introduce Loudness Toolkit 2.8, which will feature its Halo Upmix solution for stereo to 5.1, 7.1 and 3D upmixing for content creators working on audio being delivered to Netflix.

Nugen's Loudness Toolkit includes support of Netflix’s Audio Mix Specifications and Best Practices document, allowing users to create Netflix-ready mixes. Three plug-ins include the VisLM loudness meter, ISL limiter and LM-Correct quick-fix tool. They support native 7.1.2 audio processing and loudness parameters for advanced loudness control and dialog consistency.

The toolkit also now includes the DynApt extension, which offers immediate correction of LRA and dynamics while preserving dialog intelligibility and correctly identifying and respecting intentional dramatic transitions. It also provides an updated loudness parameter, Dialogue LRA as well as an added flexibility to simultaneously monitor multiple integrated measures.

The Halo Upmix is for all types of production from archive restoration and traditional television, through to the full 7.1 feature-film experience. The software features center-channel management with switchable dialog extraction, as well as an optional 3D immersive extension for Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D (7.1.4) compatibility that facilitates production across cinematic, VR and gaming applications.

Real-time analysis of original stereo material identifies and extracts locational cues to naturally extend the panorama, leaving the inherent character of the original source intact. Downmix compatibility comes assured with the “exact" mode function, which maintains the relationship between original, upmixed and downmixed file versions.
