Waves Audio adopts NDI for cloud-based media productions with Waves Cloud MX audio mixer
Waves Audio has announced support for NDI with the Cloud MX audio mixer.
Broadcast and media production teams can now add Waves’ Cloud MX audio mixer directly in the cloud workflow with easy routing of audio inputs and outputs via NDI.
“We adopted NDI technology as it is a proven system for professional cloud production environments,” said Mick Olesh, Waves managing director and EVP of sales. “The ability to process, mix and route all audio streams in the cloud, and without converting protocols, simplifies the workflow so that production teams can now focus on delivering a superior sounding program feed to the audience.”
Broadcasters and media organisations can add state-of-the-art audio mixing and processing to their flexible professional cloud-based workflows, thanks to Cloud MX’s double-precision 32-bit-float mixing engine, augmented by Waves’ arsenal of cloud-licensed audio plug-ins.
“The cloud is revolutionising live production and creative workflows; broadcasters and creators need professional audio tools to manage audio streams seamlessly over the cloud. With Waves Audio adopting NDI, the Cloud MX audio mixer now offers mixing, processing, and routing without the need for converting or transcoding, thanks to NDI and its wide adoption.” said Suso Carrillo, NDI marketing lead at Vizrt Group.
Said to be easily deployed on AWS, Cloud MX also makes it easy to scale productions with any number of audio mixers, without the operational costs involved in shipping, maintaining or scheduling on-premises gear and personnel.
All Waves Cloud MX audio mixer packages come with the cloud-licensed Waves eMo plug-ins (eMo D5 Dynamics, eMo F2 Filter, and eMo Q4 Equalizer), which form the mixer’s channel strip for a fast, efficient workflow. Audio capabilities can be further extended by upgrading to Cloud MX Audio Mixer Plus, with 11 extra cloud-licensed plug-ins, such as the Primary Source Expander for automatic mic bleed elimination, the Renaissance Vox vocal compressor, the surgical F6 floating-band dynamic EQ, MaxxBass, the L2 UltraMaximizer and more; or to Cloud MX Audio Mixer Premium, which adds over 150 cloud-licensed plug-ins, including the Dugan Speech plug-in for real-time automatic mixing of multiple mics. Each of these packages are available as one-month or one-year licenses.
