SAN FRANCISCO and MINNETONKA, Minn. -- May 18, 2015 -- Wohler Technologies and Minnetonka Audio today announced that Wohler's RadiantGrid(R) Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM) now includes Minnetonka Audio's AudioTools Server, an enterprise software system designed to solve and automate even the most sophisticated audio tasks. The integration gives RadiantGrid users additional access to Minnetonka's file-based audio-processing options.

Wohler's RadiantGrid technology leverages TrueGrid(TM) file-based processing to manage and accelerate the performance of multiple simultaneous tasks across multiple machines in a media transformation process that is simpler, faster, and dramatically more efficient than alternative solutions. The platform offers broadcasters a variety of powerful tools that boost the efficiency of file-based workflows for multiplatform media delivery. RadiantGrid's media-processing engine parallelizes complex audio processing alongside the video at unprecedented speeds.

AudioTools Server has become the No. 1 enterprise-level platform for automated and unattended file-based audio processing and has helped broadcasters add audio analysis and management processes to their existing video-centric, file-based environments. AudioTools Server adds a full complement of audio-processing expertise and workflows including comprehensive file-based loudness control, Dolby E automation, movie adaptation, and more.

"Our companies have been working together to combine our best-in-class technologies, and this integration is one result of that effort. By adding AudioTools Server to the RadiantGrid platform, we are giving our customers a larger selection of audio options that, in turn, gives them more control than ever over their audio, all in one place," said Craig Newbury, vice president of sales and marketing for Wohler Technologies. "Our technologies come together to create an integrated audio and video solution that's unique to our industry."

"RadiantGrid's flexible file-based architecture is a perfect fit for AudioTools Server," said Markus Hintz, vice president of global sales and business development for Minnetonka Audio Software. "We are looking forward to solving even more complex real-world workflow issues together."
