The production, post production and transmission of films and television programs often relies on not one but multiple Dolby audio technologies.
Whilst Dolby E allows up to 8 channels of audio to be carried using a single AES3 stream and is typically used to carry 5.1 or 7.1 multi-channel audio mixes using 2 channel audio equipment and infrastructures, Dolby D and D+ (also known as AC-3 and E-AC3) allow for the delivery of these multi-channel audio mixes to the home viewer.
Along with the multi-channel audio components themselves, the encoding and subsequent decoding of Dolby E, Dolby D and Dolby D+ audio also relies upon the correct storage, transmission and processing of associated Metadata.
Comprehensive Dolby audio monitoring ensures Dolby E, D and D+ audio content is decoded correctly, whilst also presenting all associated Metadata, giving you the peace of mind you need to be certain that your multi-channel content is as intended.
