Automates almost any (non-creative) audio process.

Renowned for providing a high-performance solution to loudness compliance without affecting the master video file, Engine also automates a range of other repetitive audio processing tasks for content preparation, distribution, and delivery. The wide range of modules can be bought and used individually or combined to create automated workflows.

Some of Engine’s audio automation modules include:

  • engine temp icon s


  • engine temp icon s

    Upmix and Downmix

  • engine temp icon s

    Dolby E encoding & decoding

  • engine temp icon s

    Channel mapping

  • engine temp icon s

    Audio Description

Full library of modules

Scales dynamically

It’s easy for anyone in your organisation to access Engine. Broadcasters that need to process high volumes of content quickly can expand the Engine system to support multiple processors and modules running concurrently, while post houses can use our Eclient to share one Engine between multiple operators that need to process smaller jobs, and each user retains control of their own files at all times.

Manages multiple workflows easily

From simple processes to complex automations that cover different applications, multiple processing stages and a number of inputs and outputs, Engine makes it easy to create and execute audio processing workflows.


Design automated workflows without the need for customised scripts.


Execute using watch folders, Engine’s API, or our Eclient.


Maintain the creative integrity of your master file with Engine’s Signal Processor application which unwraps the audio from media files, applies your chosen processes and then rewraps the audio, preserving the original video and metadata content.


Manage your project with Engine’s job management system, Eflow, which registers jobs, assigns resources to complete the workflows and provides status updates throughout the process.

Our workflow

From Loudness, to Dolby Encode, to Channel Mapping, we provide a fully streamlined workflow. Through this, we can develop an efficient audio automation solution for your processes, tailored to your requirements.

    Instant automation efficiency.

    In addition to easily integrating with MAM systems, Engine can also run automated workflows independently using watch folders. With 4 watch folders as standard and the ability to upgrade to 64 watch folders per Engine, even large organisations can get up and running quickly.

    Access across your local network.

    Engine can process media located anywhere on your network without having to bring the content to the station in a separate process. If your computer can see the content, Engine can process it.

    Manage jobs and monitor progress.

    The unique combination of Eflow, Eclient and watch folders allows a large number of users to share Engine to post new jobs for processing, monitor watch folders and processing queues, reassign job priorities and view reports for completed projects.

On-prem or in the cloud

Engine was originally developed as an on-prem solution that takes audio processing out of the edit suite and into the control room. While this on-prem solution is still extremely popular, Engine is now also available in the cloud as a microservice integrated into leading media supply chain platforms.
