    SurCode Dolby Media Meter 2

    The Minnetonka Audio Dolby Media Meter 2 Software is designed to measure loudness in program material for media, broadcast, cinema trailers, games, and VOD. Industry standards require that the audio levels of program material fall within defined ranges, which in turn requires tools that can accurately measure loudness. The software is adapted from the Dolby DP600 Program Optimizer and complies with ITU-R BS.1770 and EBU R-128 loudness measurement specifications.

    The software includes a dialogue intelligence feature which automatically detects speech in audio and measures loudness where dialogue occurs. You can also select different ways of measuring loudness depending upon the application, such as true peak, Leq(A), and Leq(m) for commercials and movie trailers. The software features real-time graphing, level meters, a user-selectable peak limiter, and warning settings for when loudness exceeds a user-defined threshold.

    The software runs as a stand-alone application on both Mac and Windows and as a plug-in with Pro Tools AudioSuite, Pro Tools RTAS, VST, and AU on Mac. All of these versions of the software can generate a log file for the loudness measurements. The stand-alone version can process audio faster than real-time depending upon hardware requirements, which is useful when mastering optical media and in broadcast, production, and postproduction quality control applications. As a plug-in, the software can simultaneously display long-term and short-term loudness levels while mixing. The software supports Dolby E, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and PCM file formats.

    SurCode Dolby Media Emulator for Metadata Authoring

    The Dolby Media Emulator from Minnetonka is an RTAS and VST compatible plug-in that provides real-time emulation of multiple Dolby broadcast formats and metadata authoring. It can emulate Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby E, and HE-AAC. The plug-in also allows you to determine and set dialog normalization. Its loudness meter supports ITU-R BS.1770-1, ITU-R BS.1770-2 as well as EBU R128.

    Please note: This product is an electronic download and requires an iLok for its license.

    Mastering, Metadata Authoring, & Broadcasting

    You can configure and control the monitoring environment and evaluate metadata parameters for postproduction, DVD and DTV facilities that master, author, or broadcast program material with Dolby surround sound audio. Dolby Media Emulator runs as an Avid RTAS plug-in, and as a VST plug-in for popular programs such as Nuendo, Pyramix and Sequoia

    Capabilities

    • Monitor in real time exactly what your customer ultimately hears
    • Evaluate metadata that has been created throughout the production, postproduction, and distribution process
    • Determine the dialogue normalization (dialnorm) value using Loudness algorithm with the included meter
    • Decode using the Dolby Pro Logic II family of matrix surround sound technologies to allow proper monitoring of Lt/Rt sources and downmixes from all other sources
