New York, NY (September 20, 2016)—Nugen Audio launched its AMB Audio Management Batch processor, a suite of modular software that will expedite a range of audio management tasks, at IBC 2016.
According to the company, AMB expands on its loudness management batch processing technology, enabling post-production facilities to speed workflows significantly and reduce delivery times for a range of different tasks. AMB also offers new features including threaded algorithm processing and multiple processing threads that are addressable for simultaneous parallel handling of files and queues.
AMB allows facilities to add the processing modules they need and tailor the system to their requirements. AMB comes standard with two watch folders/processing queues. If users need extra power and speed, the AMB Queue Expansion provides additional watch folders/processing queues. A total of up to 16 AMB Queue Expansions can be added.
As standard, the base AMB module also includes two independent processing threads that allow two simultaneous processes to run in parallel. Users can add the AMB Thread Expansion to activate additional processing threads up to a total of 16.
A range of module options, along with new customization features in the AMB processor, enable customers to carry out a greater range of audio processing tasks than previously. Options include the AMB Upmix Module, AMB Loudness Module, AMB DynApt Module and AMB MXF and ProRes Modules. These extensions enable users to carry out native processing of the audio essence within MXF wrappers or ProRes files.
AMB is now available for Windows and OSX. Included with all modules, the base configuration of AMB accesses two watch folders/processing queues and two processing threads as standard.
Current Nugen customers may cross-grade any of their existing LMB extensions for DynApt, ProRes, and MXF to corresponding AMB modules free of charge.
