The Telos Alliance’s Minnetonka AudioTools Server Creates Solutions for Loudness Correction, Audio Conversion, Upmixing
The Telos Alliance announced that Minnetonka’s AudioTools Server is a recommended solution by Dolby for loudness correction, audio conversion, and upmixing. AudioTools Server supports integrations, file formats, and Dolby processing options previously available in the VM600 Program Optimizer, while also adding an abundance of other benefits and unique features.
“AudioTools Server simplifies and automates audio workflows and goes beyond basic coding and loudness correction,” says John Schur, President, Telos Alliance TV Solutions Group. “AudioTools Server is an entire automated, scalable, file-based ecosystem with modules available from Minnetonka, as well as industry partners including Dolby. The ability to add additional processing tasks to the automated workflow process affords customers the opportunity to free up operators and creative staff for tasks which benefit from individual attention, which in turn has a positive effect on the bottom line.”
Additional AudioTools Server capabilities include load balancing, flexible licensing options, access to QuickTime ProRes containers, support for 32-bit PCM audio, more flexible scalability, conditional processing of complex files, time compression and expansion after standards conversion, auto-mix and auto-duck, automated top and tails silence detection, trimming, and logo file stitching. It also offers a host of additional QC features such as channel detection automation, phase correction, program correlation, and watermark detection.
Customers moving to AudioTools Server will also gain access to the expertise and guidance of Minnetonka Audio’s support team to ensure a seamless transition with minimal impact on productivity.
