Digitisation Audio upmixing The National Library of Norway has installed a second DFT Scanity as part of a project to digitise and archive newspapers, pictures, books, sound, manuscripts, fi lm and parliamentary reports from as far back as the Middle Ages. The new scanner, which was developed specifi cally for archives and facilities handling delicate or damaged fi lm materials, uses patented HDR technology to capture data from dense black and white materials. It has a wet gate - that works as a fl uid tank - which the fi lm passes through and fi lls surface imperfections with fl uid at the point of scan. The team responsible for digitizing the fi lm content have until 2030 to convert 21,000 titles. Nugen Audio will showcase new proprietary processes for stereo- to-5.1/7.1 upmixing at IBC (Stand 8.D56). Combining several technologies - including frequency and time domain energy distribution and neural network artifi cial intelligence – the advance will allow producers to target various upmix goals including full stable surrounds, exact downmix matching and/or full dialogue isolation. The fi rst Nugen Audio product to include this new technology will be the Halo Upmix tool, which will be unveiled at IBC. Halo Upmix will do a stereo- to-5.1/7.1 downmix-compatible upmix with optional dialogue isolation in the centre channel. It will be available in Avid AAX, VST, and AU formats. www.nugenaudio.com www.dft-fi lm.com Build your own video network! MRSP £525 Streaming within a facility or even across campus is not difficult.
