Salzbrenner Stagetec Adds XDED Board

Atlanta, GA (November 6, 2008)--Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup has added to its Nexus audio routing system with the XDED (neXus Dolby E Decoder) board. It is a slide-in Stagetec board that splits a Dolby E-encoded stream into eight separate channels. These are available subsequently for individual processing on the entire Nexus network and the Aurus consoles connected to it.

Atlanta, GA (November 6, 2008)–Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup has added to its Nexus audio routing system with the XDED (neXus Dolby E Decoder) board. It is a slide-in Stagetec board that splits a Dolby E-encoded stream into eight separate channels. These are available subsequently for individual processing on the entire Nexus network and the Aurus consoles connected to it.

Dolby E-encoded signals are typically received from AES/EBU lines. However, the Nexus offers options with reportedly a minimum of technical expenditure. For example, since the Nexus is certified for transparent forwarding of Dolby E signals, an AES/EBU line carrying a Dolby E-encoded signal can be connected to a remote base station and then transmitted over the Nexus network to the OB truck. There, it is decoded using the new XDED board.

Another application is the use of Dolby E in conjunction with SDI: Dolby E signals are often embedded into an SDI stream; the Nexus de-embeds the signal using a (optionally HD-enabled) Nexus SDI board and subsequently decodes the Dolby E data stream.

“We’ve seen great interest in our decoder board even prior to its presentation,” says Stagetec’s managing director, Dr Klaus-Peter Scholz. “It is a key component, in particular, on large HD-enabled OB vans and in TV production studios and TV main switching rooms–actually, everywhere where surround broadcasting is standard today.”
