Why did we start?
We regularly had contact with people in Playout, Broadcast and Post Production who were used to working with tape, and they said that moving to a file-based environment created significant difficulties and extra work. They asked for products that would save them time, and that were flexible and easy to use.
The most common request was both a simple way of dealing with Loudness requirements, and some help in understanding exactly what those requirements were. It is really those two thoughts that led to the birth of our company, and our first product, Eff.
Eff is a great product and we showed it to lots of companies. It was well received, but as people started to appreciate what is possible with files, new requests started to come in, and we were asked if we could include Dolby E encoding in files, or to remap the audio content. More generally, the question was – is there an easy and automatable way to normalise media files for playout? At the time there was not, and this demand led to the creation of Engine.
So that is what we stand for. Listening to your needs, and creating products that fulfil your requirements and remain easy to use. If you are looking for products like that – talk to us!
