With its unique personalization features, the MPEG-H Audio system offers fully adjustable dialogue levels, customizable audio description, multiple languages, and even interactive object positioning. As a result, users can tailor the media consumption experience to their individual preferences and needs. MPEG-H delivers these unprecedented customization options, as well as enveloping immersive sound, on every kind of playback device – from home theaters to 3D soundbars to mobile devices.
The MPEG-H Authoring Suite (MAS) is a set of tools that make the production of MPEG-H Audio content easier, faster and available for everybody. With two new tools added to the MPEG-H Authoring Suite in version 3.6, MPEG-H has just become more accessible than ever!
- The MPEG-H Conversion Tool (MCO) is a software tool for macOS and Windows that converts MPEG-H compliant content masters between different file formats. The MCO serves as an interface to the MPEG-H Audio ecosystem and supports the import and export of MPEG-H Production Format (MPF) and BWF/ADM files. With the option to import BWF/ADM files that were created by other tools, it is now up to the users to choose their preferred toolkit for the production. It is even possible to enhance existing productions from the archive with the MAS tools by first converting them with the MCO. Because of this, the MCO enables flexible integration into already existing workflows.
- The MPEG-H Production Format Player (MPF Player) is a software player enabling quality control of files containing video and associated MPF audio. The MPF Player supports a variety of video formats, such as ProRes422 in a MOV or H264/H265 in an MP4 container. With the MPF Player, there is now an easy way to play back your master files including MPEG-H Audio before encoding, check for A/V sync, review the scene authoring, preview interactivity and monitor in a variety of different render layouts – from Mono up to immersive loudspeaker setups or Binaural Rendering.
