Nugen Halo Downmix 3D Immersive Extension

Posted on: Tuesday 10th of April 2018

NUGEN-Audio_Halo-Downmix_7_1_2_to_Stereo_webNUGEN Audio has introduced a new extension for Halo Downmix, a creative solution for precise downmixing of feature-film and 5.1 mixes to stereo, at NAB 2018. NUGEN Audio is also featuring updates for its Halo line, its recently released Dolby E extension module for the AMB Audio Management Batch Processor.

3D Immersive Extension adds capability for downmixing 7.1.2 Dolby Atmos bed tracks to 7.1, 5.1 and stereo. All versions of Halo Downmix have been updated to introduce greater control over the centre channel energy placement when downmixing to channel counts above stereo. This new center channel divergence control enables precise handling of the amount of centre channel spread into the left and right channels in the downmix. This is a versatile way to either directly translate the centre channel energy or move it into the left and right channels by choosing a degree of phantom centre.

Also new: Dolby E Functionality for the AMB Audio Batch Processor. AMB enables post-production facilities to accelerate workflows significantly and reduce delivery times for a range of different tasks, such as loudness correction, dynamics adaptation and upmixing. AMB offers best-in-class processing speed, and for greater scalability, both Queue Expansion and Thread Expansion modules are available. The new Dolby E Module allows AMB to natively process Dolby E files and is now available in addition to existing modules for processing MXF and ProRes files.
