Skywalker Sound and Cinnafilm Launch Automated Audio Processing Suite
Oct 20, 2020, 13:00 ET
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Cinnafilm has added another exciting toolset to its media processing ecosystem. Skywalker Sound and Cinnafilm partnered to create Skywalker Sound Tools for the award-winning PixelStrings media conversion SaaS. Skywalker Sound Tools provides a streamlined audio pipeline experience, combining high-quality audio processing capabilities based on over 30 years of audio ingenuity from Skywalker Sound with automated, intelligent orchestration that greatly reduces audio workflow complexity for professional content delivery.
Says Cinnafilm COO Ernie Sanchez, "Studios, broadcasters, and other content distributors must fulfill myriad delivery standards and formats, and content creators want their visual and aural artistic intent to remain intact from creation to distribution. To meet these needs, we built PixelStrings to provide sensible, scalable, enterprise-grade media processing and conversions. We are excited to work with a like-minded, industry-leading entity such as Skywalker Sound, who shares the same enthusiasm and passion for sound. The integration of Skywalker Sound Tools makes PixelStrings the most inclusive conversion system for top-tier industry deliverables."
Skywalker Sound Tools' proprietary signal processing and intelligent orchestration technology make the product suite vastly comprehensive. It allows the mastering engineer to conduct channel mapping, downmixing, retiming, segmenting, and loudness correction within the automated workflow, avoiding external DAWs and other applications, which can introduce the challenges of operator error, duplicate media, digital audio corruption, incompatibilities, and perhaps most importantly, inefficiency.
According to Josh Lowden, General Manager of Skywalker Sound, "We're very excited about this important milestone in Skywalker Sound's history. We've been working for several years to develop strategic software tools that leverage Skywalker's core strengths and serve our community of filmmakers. We are thrilled to work with Cinnafilm to bring these tools to the market."
Skywalker Sound Tools is available now, exclusively within PixelStrings cloud and on-premises.
