San Francisco, CA (February 6, 2007)–Dolby Laboratories, Inc. unveiled its latest addition to the Dolby Media Producer product line. Designed for smaller postproduction facilities, Dolby Media Encoder SE (Stand-alone Edition) is a cost-effective single-computer software encoding solution that offers the same level of high-quality encoding capabilities as the original Dolby Media Encoder network version.
Dolby Media Encoder SE encodes all Dolby audio technologies used in packaged media applications, including Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and MLP Lossless. It brings file-based encoding to smaller postproduction facilities for producing audio files for DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, HD DVD, and Blu-ray Disc, and gives customers a choice of Dolby Media Producer software encoder products.
“We are committed to bringing to market high-quality mastering and encoding tools for the entire postproduction community,” said Steve Venezia, manager, DVD/DTV Broadcast Support, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby Media Encoder SE offers the same high level of quality and Dolby technologies as the Dolby Media Encoder network encoder, but it is better suited for facilities with only one or two encoding suites that don’t need networking capability.”
Dolby Media Encoder SE is a great addition to the Dolby Media Producer line of products, and works side by side with Dolby Media Decoder and Dolby Media Tools in the same way as the Dolby Media Encoder network version. It is expected to be available in February.
