AMB aims to broaden access to Nugen Audio's processing technologies, particularly for large-enterprise post facilities that require features like multiple processing queues and multiple queue submissions per file

Nugen Audio will preview its Audio Management Batch (AMB) processor at NAB 2016, a new solution built on the company's Loudness Management Batch (LMB) processing tools. The company will also show off its live new Adobe Premiere Pro CC integration for the LM-Correct 2 loudness quick-fix tool (pictured above).

Nugen Audio's LMB Processor offers automated loudness measurement and correction for .wav, MXF, and ProRes files. The new AMB Processor will increase these capabilities by offering greater scalability, through features such as threaded algorithm processing and multiple processing threads that are addressable for simultaneous parallel handling of files and queues. Nugen aims to expand AMB's loudness processing capabilities in the future with additional functions such as batch upmixing and downmixing. 

"We developed AMB in response to customer demand for increased flexibility, more processing power, and scalable access to expanded capabilities," said Jon Schorah, Nugen's founder and creative director. "AMB will broaden access to Nugen Audio's award-winning processing technologies, particularly for large-enterprise post facilities that require features like multiple processing queues and multiple queue submissions per file. These features will radically speed up workflows for processing source content to be delivered, for example, to several different international regions. We encourage NAB Show attendees to visit our booth and hear how NUGEN Audio plans to become a key provider of batch file processing solutions that meet demand for increased flexibility and processing power."

Nugen Audio's AMB Processor is scheduled for release during the third quarter of 2016, with pricing to be announced. Also later this year, the company will make the new capabilities of AMB available to current LMB owners via several upgrade or cross-grade options and will release the additional options for batch upmixing and downmixing.

The latest release of LM-Correct 2, Loudness Toolkit's quick-fix tool, will be the first time Adobe Premiere users can access LM-Correct 2 as a Common Extensibility Platform (CEP) panel within the editing environment, allowing LRA targeting through LM-Correct 2's DynApt extension. The update is now available for all existing LM-Correct 2 users.

"Our proprietary DynApt technology received a commendation at the IBC2015 Innovation Awards because it creates a groundbreaking loudness-normalized workflow for film soundtrack adaptation for broadcast," Schorah said. "Now Adobe Premiere users will have access to this unique technology within their familiar NLE for many forms of content production, compliance, and repurposing." 

Also at the 2016 NAB Show, Nugen Audio will feature Site, a new floating license system designed to simplify license management for enterprise users of the company's audio upmixing and loudness tools. Designed for customers with 10 or more seats, Site uses server-based licensing technology to streamline and centralise license management across a network. 

In addition to the Site licensing system, Nugen Audio will introduce a new lease licensing option for the company's Post Pack and Producer Pack plug-in bundles.
