Some educational institutions, particularly universities and colleges, prefer the predictable, recurring expense of a renewable payment instead of the uncertainty of purchasing a license for one version of the software, then needing to make a separate purchase in the future for updates, and so on.
The Nuendo Educator 365 EE SKU has been introduced for these institutions. Each seat consists of a timelimited license, valid for one year from the point of activation. This license is valid not only for the current version of the software, but also for any major version updates that are released during that year (subject to an update to the eLicenser Control Center database, which is required to extend the license for the new version).
At the end of the year-long licensing period, the software becomes inoperable, and the institution must purchase a renewal at the same per-seat price for the following year.

Using artificial intelligence powered unique algorithms developed by the Oldenburg branch of the Fraunhofer IDMT in Germany, the audio signals are analyzed through a speech intelligibility model based on automatic speech recognition technologies. It calculates the perceived effort of the listener needed to understand the spoken word in a mix. (Only available in English and German.)
Netflix Loudness Metering
TV sound is always different to what you hear at the movies so, to maintain consistency, this meter is calibrated to Netflix's official Sound Mix Specifications and Best Practices, measuring the overall "dialog gated" loudness at a standard reference of 27.0 LUFS.
A long requested feature, you can now queue up to 20 different jobs comprising stems (e.g. dialog, Foley, atmospheres and music) and everything that can be configured in the Export Audio Mixdown dialog (including different time selections, formats, name and export path) in a single list, exporting them separately but all in one operation.
