Minnetonka Audio breaks loudness control sales projections

Minnetonka Audio Software’s installed base for the AudioTools Server automated audio processor line has outstripped all projections for FY 2011. A complete, turnkey solution for managing and processing linear PCM, Dolby E, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Digital Plus content, as well as the audio essence in MXF and QuickTime(r) files, AudioTools Server extracts audio essence, processes the data in a wide variety of ways, and reconfigures channel assignments as required prior to repackaging. "Over 25 years of award winning OEM and retail audio development, combined with our close collaborations with system integrators and broadcasters, has given us a deep understanding of file-based workflows," said John Schur, president of Minnetonka Audio. "This has resulted in our ATS platform, the ultimate vehicle for file-based audio post processing. AudioTools Server represents decades of expertise encapsulated in a flexible, focused package of audio specialisation with a low cost of entry. Some of the largest broadcasters worldwide have acknowledged that leadership." ARTE, Canal +, Ericsson, France Télévisions, RTL Group, SBS Broadcasting, SKY, Visual Data and WDR Westdeutscher Rundfunk have all purchased AudioTools Server configurations to maximise throughput while maintaining quality and compliance. Markus Hintz, director of Global Sales and Business Development, said: "In the European Union, where governmental efforts to control subjective loudness have been underway for several years, we provide a welcome problem solver that’s scalable and easily integrated into existing production environments."
