Minnetonka Dialogue Intelligibility Plug-In
The Telos Alliance TV Solutions Group has introduced AudioTools Voice, an enhancement tool that addresses television viewer’s long-standing and ongoing struggle to clearly hear and understand program dialogue.
AudioTools Voice draws attention to the human voice without adding gain, EQ, or any other type of traditional signal processing. Instead, it draws upon the results of research into how viewers respond to, perceive, and process sound. The result is that viewers no longer have to struggle to understand the spoken word or hear dialogue as it competes with other elements in the final mix.
AudioTools Voice transcends factors such as low-quality television speakers, sound bars, and less-than-ideal listening environments. Critically, the increased dialogue intelligibility easily survives the loudness processing, upmixing, downmixing, and audio encoding stages required for program distribution and transmission.
Ideally, AudioTools Voice is applied to the dialogue track(s) prior to creating the final stereo or multi-channel mix; however, it can easily and effectively be applied to existing mono, two-channel, and multi-channel mixes.
The AudioTools Voice plug-in is available for Minnetonka Audio’s AudioTools Server platform, Avid’s Pro Tools and Media Composer product family, and other qualified VST 2.4 hosts.
The retail version of AudioTools Voice is available for download from Minnetonka Audio at http://www.minnetonkaaudioshop.com
