OCTIV & CYCLING ’74 ANNOUNCE OCTIRAMA

First Full-featured, Multi-Band Dynamics Processor for 5.1 Surround Mastering
for Digidesign ProTools Systems

Berkeley, CA, November 1, 2004 — Octiv Inc., the Berkeley-based digital audio innovator and Cycling ’74, a software company based in San Francisco today announced Octirama, a Surround Dynamics Processor for Digidesign ProTools Systems. Octirama is the first full-featured, multi-band dynamics processor for 5.1 Surround Mastering for the Digidesign TDM environment. Octirama incorporates sophisticated four- and five-band processing for each of five channels, plus sophisticated bass management for precise control of peaks and loudness.

Octirama was developed by Octiv Inc. using patented techniques to provide DSP efficiencies allowing a full-featured dynamic processor to run on a single 56000 chip. Features for each of the 5 Surround channels include an input AGC, four or five-band dynamics processor, five in-band peak limiters, band mixing, and a final peak limiter. Over 40 simultaneous meters provide detailed information on gain reduction, downward expansion, and output levels. Unlike other multi-channel dynamics processors, Octirama’s processing algorithm preserves the surround image.

Pricing and Availability
Octirama will be available from Cycling ’74 distributors worldwide and directly online from Cycling ’74 in fourth quarter 2004. Pricing will be announced at that time.
