Minnetonka, MN (April 21, 2016)—Minnetonka Audio featured its latest software solutions at NAB 2016, including the latest version of AudioTools Server, AudioTools CLOUD, SurCode Dolby Digital Plus for Avid and SurCode Dolby E for Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
Version 4.1 AudioTools Server provides users with many new features including the addition of Linear Acoustic APTO adaptive loudness processing. Linear Acoustic APTO (sold separately) is the next generation loudness processing solution designed for compliance in a real-time environment. Linear Acoustic APTO is available as an OEM module for direct integration, or can be used in AudioTools Server in a file-based mode. Available as a free upgrade to existing AudioCare subscribers, 4.1 now includes an operator application for simple workflow configuration, design and submission.
AudioTools CLOUD brings Minnetonka audio processing to the cloud, allowing on-demand, case-by-case use. Businesses only pay for the infrastructure they need, when they need it, using Amazon AWS.
SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus Encoder and Decoder plug-ins, the first solution to bring Dolby Digital Plus to the Avid platform, support up to eight channels of audio and ranges from 5.1 plus stereo to four independent stereo channels. SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus Decoder enables the auditioning and decoding/confidence monitoring of Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital encoded audio files and has the capability to decode back to multichannel PCM audio directly into the timeline.
SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus Encoder allows users to create fully compliant Dolby Digital Plus E-AC-3 files from multichannel WAV or AIFF sources. When working with legacy content, SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus also provides encoding and decoding of Dolby Digital AC-3 files.
SurCode Dolby E Encoder and Decoder, which works with Adobe Premiere Pro CC, allows for files to be encoded and decoded directly within Premiere Pro CC. The iLok-protected VST decoder can be instantiated as a real-time confidence monitor, and used for faster than real-time export.
