“This partnership enables any Imagine Communications customer to have simple, cost-effective, cloud-based access to the gold standard in audio and loudness control with no need for external hardware boxes or interruptions to new streamlined workflows,” said Steve Reynolds, chief technology officer, Imagine Communications.

The company designs and manufactures the AERO™ range of real-time and file-based audio and loudness managers including UPMAX® upmixing, loudness metering products and standards-based codecs for distribution and emission. It is part of radio and television audio technology company The Telos Alliance, headquartered in Cleveland, with additional offices around the world.
