The Dolby® E Decoder DP572 decodes Dolby E encoded program material for use in broadcast and postproduction facilities prior to final DTV and HDTV transmission.
The DP572 is designed to ease the transition by DTV broadcasters and program producers from two-channel to multichannel audio. The DP572 decodes up to eight channels of high-quality audio, plus Dolby Digital metadata, from a Dolby E signal encoded on a single AES3 pair, external fiber, satellite link, digital videotape, digital audiotape, or from a video server. It is easily integrated into postproduction and broadcast facilities. The DP572 can accept both PCM and Dolby E signals and can switch automatically to provide seamless integration of multichannel and archived stereo programming.
