Minnetonka, MN (December 16, 2015)—With Minnetonka Audio’s SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus Decoder and Encoder now available for Avid AAX supported products, the company becomes the first to bring Dolby Digital Plus to the Avid platform.
The SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus Decoder enables the auditioning and decoding/confidence monitoring of Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital encoded audio files for post production, film, TV, mobile, gaming and VOD. It also has the capability to decode back to multichannel PCM audio directly into the timeline.
SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus Encoder allows users to create fully compliant Dolby Digital Plus E-AC-3 files from multichannel WAV or AIFF sources. When working with legacy content, SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus also provides encoding and decoding of Dolby Digital AC-3 files.
For repurposing 5.1 stems, SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus is also able to upmix from 5.1 to 6.1 and 7.1 formats. As Dolby-certified products, the decoded and encoded audio files from SurCode are compatible with all Dolby Digital branded software or hardware encoders and decoders. Cross-platform plug-ins and native versions of the software support both Mac and PC.
SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus includes both an encoder and decoder and is available as iLok-protected installers for AAX 32/64 bit real-time or AudioSuite plug-in for ProTools 10.3.6 or higher, and Media Composer family 8.1 or higher. For Pro Tools Dolby Digital customers, there is an aggressive cross-grade price point for Neyrinck SoundCode for the bundle.
The SurCode for Dolby Digital Plus Encoder and Decoder bundle will now be part of the SurCode for Dolby Master Suite, which also includes SurCode for Dolby E Bundle, SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Media Meter and Wave File Analyzer.
