Cooperation announced between DSPECIALISTS and Minnetonka

DSPECIALISTS Digitale Audio- und Messsysteme GmbH announced a new processing module for AudioTools Server – a file-based audio automation platform for broadcasters.

DSPECIALISTS have developed a new dynamic control solution that achieves a reduction in the LRA criterion without producing audible artefacts. The algorithm combines multiple measurement layers from various time windows, and applies numerous infinitesimal gain corrections. In this way the LRA can be reduced without affecting the quality of the signal. 

“AudioTools Server is widely regarded as the most advanced platform in use today by broadcasters for enterprise level loudness control.  To meet the challenge of controlling dynamic content through the play-out chain, our processing fits directly into a carefully designed workflow as an ATS module.  Our processing module will be easily integrated into current workflows,” says Jochen Cronemeyer, Managing Director of DSPECIALISTS.

The plugin for Audio Tools Server will be available at NAB 2015 and sold through Minnetonka Audio Software authorized, international ATS sales channel.
