Wohler(R) and Linear Acoustic(R) Partnership Yields Turnkey Solution for Fast, Efficient File-Based Audio Processing and Loudness Management
SAN FRANCISCO -- Oct. 24, 2012 -- Wohler Technologies today announced that the Linear Acoustic(R) industry-leading AERO.file(R) audio processor and loudness manager will be offered exclusively by Wohler as a turnkey solution: WohlerLoudness(TM). This proven solution for file-based loudness correction offers users the industry's quickest and most efficient method of solving loudness problems and maintaining compliance with global loudness standards.
"We're building on our acquisition of RadiantGrid Technologies and extending the broad set of RadiantGrid features by creating tightly built appliance and software packages that solve broadcasters' most challenging issues," said Carl Dempsey, Wohler president and CEO. "Enabling new levels of efficiency in file-based loudness and audio control, WohlerLoudness is just another example of this initiative. We're excited to offer this acclaimed loudness management technology, pioneered by the recognized industry leader, Linear Acoustic."
"We are proud to be working with Wohler to help broadcasters achieve loudness compliance while maintaining quality," said Tim Carroll, founder and president of Linear Acoustic. "WohlerLoudness sets a new high standard for file-based audio correction."
AERO.file originally was designed by Linear Acoustic and incorporated by RadiantGrid Technologies to raise the bar for loudness and audio control in file-based workflows. Now part of WohlerLoudness, this solution provides file-based inspection/correction software that enables users to identify and correct loudness issues at ingest, before they become a problem. When processing the audio associated with video, RadiantGrid(TM) transwrapping enables rapid audio processing without the need to decode and re-encode video files and without compromising the quality of the original content.
WohlerLoudness is available as a software-only application or as a complete bundled solution with both hardware and software included.
