It allows for easier updates, better integration with other software, and does not suffer from hardware obsolescence.
Multiple 5.1 + Downmixes
Engine also excels at creating multiple 5.1 surround sound and downmixes. With its advanced audio processing capabilities, it can efficiently produce a variety of mixes to cater to different playback systems. This ability ensures that audiences can enjoy a consistent and high-quality listening experience, whether they're using a home theatre system, a pair of headphones, or a professional cinema setup.
Support for Dolby E and Dolby Digital
With Engine, support for premium audio formats like Dolby E and Dolby Digital is built-in. These formats are widely used in broadcasting and cinema, so this capability is crucial for professional audio work. The software can encode and decode these formats, allowing users to create audio that meets industry standards and is compatible with a wide range of playback systems.
Loudness Control & Compliance
Engine provides advanced loudness control features, ensuring compliance with international standards. This feature is essential in today's broadcasting world, where adherence to standards like those from the ITU and EBU is critical. Engine's precise control over loudness levels ensures a consistent audio experience across different platforms and formats, eliminating unpleasant volume changes for listeners.
Full Automation of Audio Processing
One of Engine's most significant advantages is its capacity for the full automation of audio processing. By automating repetitive tasks, the software reduces the potential for human error and speeds up the workflow. Engine's robust automation capabilities also free up audio professionals to focus on more creative and complex tasks, making it an invaluable tool in a fast-paced audio post-production environment.
