As standard, the base AMB configuration includes two independent processing threads that optimize workflows by allowing two simultaneous processes to run in parallel. For even greater power and efficiency, an AMB thread expansion can be added; each instance will activate an extra processing thread up to a total of 16.
What is AMB?
AMB is a modular application for Windows and OSX that enables post production facilities to speed up workflows significantly for a range of different tasks, including upmixing and loudness management.
AMB provides unprecedented power and control using threaded algorithm processing and multiple processing threads that are addressable for parallel file and queue handling.
AMB System Features:
- Typically over 100x real-time
- Multiple file formats supported
- Scalable modular architecture
- Loudness and upmix options
- Automated log generation
Save time and increase accuracy of compliance checking and correction. With AMB automatically watching output folders, errors can be caught and corrected, or warning indicators given ensuring that quality standards and compliance criteria are met at all times.
Multiple queues and folders enable automated re-versioning of original assets for different regions and network standards. Using the optional DynApt extension automates re-purposing from feature film to TV to web ready assets, preserving dialog clarity and enabling specific LRA targeting if required.
Condensed and extensive text logs, and graphical logs are available, enabling detailed post-mortem analysis and proof of compliance records.
With the option to expand capacity with up to 16 watch folders and queues and 16 processor threads, AMB is a future proof solution for any busy post production environment.
For Ingest and Broadcast
Automate assessment of incoming 3rd party assets with ease. Optional error reporting and/or correction ensures acceptance standards are met without error.
Fully expandable with up to 16 processor threads and 16 folders capable of maintaining individual compliance criteria, AMB can be scaled to handle high throughput environments.
With the ability to automatically submit the same file to multiple queues, AMB is perfect for re-porposing for multiple regions and play-out environments including film, TV and internet streams from a single original asset.
Dolby E, MXF and ProRes extension options allow for native handling of the audio within the container. Full meta data support, including over-rides ensures smooth transition of files through larger MAM systems.
