Jünger Audio, Minnetonka Audio Announce Partnership

Jünger Audio and Minnetonka Audio have announced a technology partnership. The agreement sees Jünger Audio's Level Magic loudness management algorithm supported by Minnetonka Audio Software's AudioTools Server.

It is the first deployment of Level Magic in a file-based domain.

Designed to solve and automate sophisticated audio tasks, Minnetonka Audio Software's AudioTools Server is a customisable enterprise software system for file-based workflows. The server provides a solution for managing and processing linear PCM, Dolby E, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Digital Plus content, as well as the audio essence in MXF and QuickTime clips.

With Level Magic available as an optional module, broadcasters and program makers will no longer be faced with 'surprise' level changes when switching from one audio source to another.

"The broadcast industry continues to be moving towards file based processes and platforms. File based processes allow for more options, including purely scaling of program loudness levels," said Markus Hintz, VP of Global Sales & Business Development for Minnetonka Audio. "Broadcasters have recently experienced that this may not be enough. Level Magic on AudioTools Server allows broadcasters to use the same type of audio processing, already used in their real time playout, in the file based domain. This basically allows to combine the best of both worlds (real time and file based) on the AudioTools Server enterprise platform."

Peter Poers, CEO of Jünger Audio, added: "Integrating Level Magic with the AudioTools Server is a great way to deliver our dynamic loudness control solution to broadcasters who are using a batch folder, file based system. This innovation ensures that files for distribution and broadcast achieve the same audio performance as the thousands of real-time live streams already being processed by Level Magic. The industry has often requested access to Level Magic for file based systems and we are delighted that our technology partnership with Minnetonka satisfies that demand."

Jünger Audio and Minnetonka Audio are both exhibiting at IBC 2016 and can be found at 10.A49 and 7.J40, respectively.
