Minnetonka, MN (March 22, 2013)-Minnetonka Audio Software, Inc. (MASI) has released AudioTools Server (ATS) 2.5, the latest version of its flagship automated audio processing product.
Along with standards-compliant loudness control, the new version adds features including load balancing, workflow failover, and support for additional codecs. According to the company, it is the first system of its kind to include Dialogue Intelligence for dialog-anchored loudness correction, which employs Minnetonka Audio's proprietary purPath algorithms for digital signal processing. ATS 2.5 is also first in offering improved short-term and momentary limiting with purPath loudness control.
ATS 2.5 is an enterprise software system for automated audio processing in file-based workflows. The system conforms to the CALM Act, ATSC A/85, EBU R 128, ITU-R BS.1770, ARIB TR-B32 and OP-59, providing specialized workflows that apply loudness control optimized for different targets and platforms.
ATS 2.5 works in conjunction with the ATS WFC workflow control module to enable nonlinear loudness correction based on the actual percentage of dialog in the material. Also new to version 2.5 is support for MPEG audio and AAC, critical for hybrid and mobile TV, as well as radio applications.
