Danish software house Hindenburg Systems has been helping broadcast journalists tell stories in sound since 2009. The clean, user-friendly design has won the hearts of broadcast radio journalists all over the world. But the software is more than just pretty – it is also clever!

Sound quality is just as vital for broadcast radio as it is for audio books for the visually impaired. Hindenburg’s advanced DSP technology, automatic level-setting and Voice Profiling system ensure high quality audio for journalists with little technical know-how.

Now Hindenburg Audio Book Creator (HABC) brings the same Scandinavian design and advanced audio technology to the production of audio books.

HABC was successfully launched at the NEWPUBCPH conference in Copenhagen on June 13th 2013. HABC will allow libraries and e-book publishers to combine the highest possible quality with the most efficient production workflow for DAISY and EPUB3 audio book production.

“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 Hindenburg Audio Book Creator is developed in cooperation with DAISY members, NLB and NOTA with input from multiple DAISY book producers. Their feedback has resulted in a user-friendly tool that upholds the highest standards of audio books, be it DAISY 2.02 or EPUB 3. DAISY 3.0 support on its way.
