Dolby Laboratories will showcase its latest audio solutions for HDTV and DTV terrestrial, cable and satellite services at NAB (booth #SU10443). Most notably, Dolby will debut its new LM100 loudness meter software remote application, introduce an enhanced version of Dolby Digital for future broadcast systems, showcase Dolby Pro Logic II for stereo infrastructures, and demonstrate Dolby Digital 5.1 content for cable, satellite and terrestrial broadcasting.
The new LM100 software remote application will assist post-production operations, television broadcast, cable systems and satellite providers with advanced loudness measurement, logging features and enhanced error reporting, enabling them to address subjective loudness issues. Applications include network QC, post production, DVD authoring, broadcast on-air monitoring/logging, video-on-demand (VOD) encoding and satellite turnaround facilities.
Dolby will introduce enhancements to the Dolby Digital format that expand the capability of the technology for future broadcast systems, while maintaining compatibility with the 37 million Dolby Digital decoders already in home receivers worldwide.
Dolby Pro Logic II provides surround sound on any stereo-only television service, as well as on VHS tapes and top-selling video games. Hear recent Dolby Pro Logic II broadcasts, including FOX’s NASCAR broadcasts, and discover the DP563 Dolby Surround and Pro Logic II encoder and the Dolby DP564 multichannel audio decoder.
Visitors can also experience scenes from current DTV broadcasts from local networks and premium cable and satellite stations incorporating Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound from terrestrial, cable and satellite services in our booth theater. Cable and satellite attendees can also view a typical uplink configuration, and learn how to upgrade an existing two-channel facility to include Dolby Digital 5.1-channel capability.
