NUGEN Audio joins DPP Compliance Programme9 July 2014
NUGEN Audio has announced its participation in the Digital Production Partnership (DPP). The company joins other broadcast equipment manufacturers who are working with the DPP and the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) on a new compliance and certification programme, AS-11 DPP.
Through its Technical Standards group, the DPP is aiming to standardise technical and metadata requirements within the UK broadcast industry to ensure digital video content can be easily and cost-effectively distributed to audiences via multiple platforms. The AS-11 DPP programme was launched to help further interoperability and create governance around AS-11 DPP compliance in products.
“Our participation in the DPP Compliance Programme is the latest example of our ongoing commitment to supporting our customers in the ever-evolving landscape of loudness compliance,” said Jon Schorah, creative director, NUGEN Audio. “As file delivery day approaches in the UK, NUGEN Audio users can be assured that we will be supporting the AS-11 DPP specification from the outset, with products such as LMB, our Loudness Management Batch processor.”
As a member of the programme, NUGEN Audio is helping to develop quality assurance criteria for the AS-11 DPP specification. Goals of the programme are to reduce interoperability issues when creating and using AS-11 DPP files, provide industry assurance through a consistent expectation of quality and reliability with AS-11 DPP products, and improve file-based testing knowledge and communications between broadcasters and manufacturers.
