Hindenburg ABC - NLS edition

“Hindenburg Systems bring great technology and usability to the audio book field. Their product will dramatically

improve our efficiency and audio quality, while ensuring that we can keep providing the most advanced products to

our users, now and in the future.”

 

- Ole Holst Andersen, Head of IT and Production, NOTA

The ideal solution for talking book libraries and talking book producers producing books in the NLS (National Library Services) format.
Hindenburg ABC takes the complexity of talking book production and makes it look easy.
Talking books are produced in many fashions. Some narrators read from the pages and add structure to audio later. Some create a digital structure before reading from the book. Some skip the  physical book altogether and read the book directly from the screen.
All of these are possible with Hindenburg ABC NLS.

 

  • Import eBook
  • Create Structure
  • Synchronise audio & text


Save hours in post production. Automated levels and equalisation are at the heart of Hindenburg ABC NLS. Levels are set automatically after each recording. Hindenburg is the first DAW that has Loudness integrated, so your levels are set to optimal professional standards for talking book production.


Audio editing is also easy to do. Hindenburg ABC NLS has all the tools you would expect from a professional DAW. 
Equalisation is important for post production. With the built-in Voice Profiler, intelligent personalised settings can be created for individual narrators.

 

  • Auto levels (Loudness EBU R128)

Exporting talking books requires attention to detail. Hindenburg has developed its tools in collaboration with the talking book community in order to export books to the highest standards within Audio Book, DAISY 2.02 and EPUB 3.
