At the 2017 NAB Show, NUGEN Audio will demonstrate new downmixing technology for creating the best possible stereo mixes from original surround audio sources. The company will also showcase its industry-leading post-production and broadcast audio tools for loudness, upmixing, and batch processing, and a range of products for creative sound design, enhancement, and sound-stage correction.
Introducing: Halo Downmix
NUGEN Audio will unveil Halo Downmix, an all-new product in the company’s award-winning Halo line. Halo Downmix is a highly creative solution for precise downmixing of feature-film or 5.1 mixes to stereo. Until Halo Downmix, the options available to audio engineers for downmixing were less than ideal. Pre-existing tools can generate excess ambient sound as the rear channels collapse to stereo, and they can cause indistinct dialog or disproportionate levels of low-frequency energy. Original archive material, when upmixed using legacy methods such as rear-channel delay and phase shifting, can end up with audible timing errors when summed to the phantom centre.
