Telos Alliance’s Minnetonka AudioTools Server recently adopted Fraunhofer IIS’s MPEG-H Audio authoring workflow. The toolset is suitable for a wide variety of audio processing fields and brings countless benefits to terrestrial, IPTV, and satellite broadcast as well as pre- and post-production.


In a constantly evolving media landscape, the task of preparing and broadcasting content is rapidly gaining complexity. It is Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS’s and its partners’ mission to create new tools and processes that make life easier for media producers and content creators worldwide.

Minnetonka AudioTools Server, a collection of essential aids for file-based media work, now features Fraunhofer’s MPEG-H NGA (Next-Generation Audio) solution. In the industry, AudioTools Server is a well-regarded tool for the automation of audio processes like loudness control, data encoding, and future-proofing of databases. The accompanying UI editor enables quick and easy integration with the customer’s ecosystem and effortless creation of new custom workflows. Over 1,000 typical audio functions already come with AudioTools Server, with MPEG-H Audio authoring workflow as its most recent addition.

The MPEG-H Audio authoring workflow provides automatic, efficient, and fast generation of Next-Generation Audio content as MPF (MPEG-H Production Format) or MPEG-H BWF/ADM files. MPEG-H Audio scenes are easily defined and authored, including a rich set of personalization features from presets to advanced interactivity settings. Additional tools help with the pre-production process by automatically generating immersive upmixes by conforming the loudness levels to the required standards or by automatically de-embedding and re-embedding various flavors of media assets, including QT MOV, MXF, and WAV.

The MPEG-H Audio authoring workflow substantially advances Minnetonka AudioTools’ feature set for Next -Generation Audio productions. Its support of channel-based and object-based workflows makes it a go-to solution for today’s and tomorrow’s projects. Furthermore, making use of its batch-processing architecture, it can easily convert whole media archives into personalized and interactive audio productions for MPEG-H Audio distribution.
