JÃ¼nger Audio and Merging Technologies announced that they have signed a technology partnership that will see JÃ¼nger Audioâ€™s groundbreaking LEVEL MAGICâ„¢ Loudness control solution incorporated into Mergingâ€™s new MXFixâ„¢ batch-processing wrap tool. The combination of industry proven MXF metadata conformity wrapping, Final Check loudness analysis, Surcode Dolby EÂ® decoding and encoding plug-ins and LEVEL MAGICâ„¢ provides a powerful all-in-one media compliance batch processing wrap tool.
JÃ¼nger Audio has achieved notable success with a range of hardware units offering LEVEL MAGICâ„¢ as one of the processes. These incorporate ATSC, ITU and EBU R128 recommendations on Loudness and have already been adopted by broadcasters such as Discovery Channel, MediaCorp, Canal +, Astro and RTL. The addition of LEVEL MAGICâ„¢ to MXFix is the first time it has been offered as part of a suite of software options. MXFix with LEVEL MAGICâ„¢ was
unveiled for the first time at the IBC.
Peter Poers, Managing Director of JÃ¼nger Audio, says: â€œWe are delighted to be in partnership with Merging Technologies because this â€œone-stopâ€? process is popular with some broadcasters and it is important to have LEVEL MAGICâ„¢ as part of the process, integrated into the network and working faster than real-time. Our 20-plus years of expertise in dynamic processing and Mergingâ€™s similar experience in software and server development, is an ideal combination.â€?
â€œWhen we were looking to add control as the next step after our Final Check Loudness analyser, JÃ¼nger Audioâ€™s LEVEL MAGICâ„¢ was really the obvious choice.â€? comments Claude Cellier, Mergingâ€™s CEO. â€œWe are delighted by the cooperation we have received from Peter and the team and we are sure it will be a winning combination.â€?
