Nugen Audio has unveiled a beta version of its AMB Dolby Module, the latest option for the AMB Audio Management Batch processor modular software.

AMB is designed to improve workflow efficiency for a range of different tasks. Using AMB Loudness, DynApt or Upmix modules with the new AMB Dolby Module, post-production facilities can natively batch process Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus files, reducing delivery times considerably for loudness measurement and correction, dynamics processing and upmixing. The facility to decode these Dolby formats to linear PCM wave files further supports workflow versatility. The AMB Dolby Module also provides support for Dolby Metadata and Dolby E Program configurations.

“We’re pleased that Nugen’s new AMB Dolby Module offers content creators scalable, batch processing of content in Dolby formats,” said J.C. Morizur, senior director of pro products and solutions at Dolby Laboratories. “There is increasing need for our users to process large numbers of files under tight time restrictions. AMB will help our customers meet those demands.”

“We are delighted to offer new options for engineers involved in the rapidly developing world of immersive audio and Dolby Atmos,” said Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, Nugen Audio. “These new developments allow engineers to use our unique algorithms in ever diversifying contexts and workflows. We’re also glad to be working with Dolby in adding a module for its important formats to AMB, giving professionals even greater access to our award-winning technologies.”

AMB offers unprecedented scalability, allowing post-production facilities of all sizes to add the precise processing modules they need and tailor the system to their exact requirements. AMB offers threaded algorithm processing and multiple processing threads that are addressable for simultaneous parallel handling of files and queues.

The Dolby Module will be the latest addition to the growing number of module options for AMB that are enabling customers to carry out a greater range of audio-processing tasks than ever before:

AMB is now available for Windows and OSX. Each functional module (Loudness, Upmix, DynApt, MXF and ProRes) is priced at $999. The new Dolby Module will also be $999 and Dolby and Nugen are currently in discussions with a view to making it available in the fourth quarter of 2017. Several expansion options for increased processing power and speed are also available.
