Dolby Labs shows off DP600 program optimizer at AES
Dolby Laboratories is offering a number of new products at its AES booth this weekend. Key highlights include the Dolby DP600 Program Optimizer, a tool designed for loudness and other analysis of audio packaged in a computer file-based format.
Available now, the award winning Dolby DP600 Program Optimizer is designed for file-based environments for postproduction and broadcast applications. With the new Neyrinck SoundCode for Broadcast plug-in for Digidesign Pro Tools and other DAWs, the company will demonstrate how the DP600 is used for audio postproduction. Integrated Dolby E encoding, decoding, loudness analysis, and correction within the Pro Tools environment will be shown. In addition, the DP600-C version also supports faster-than-real-time encoding, decoding, and transcoding of Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby E, and MPEG-1 LII bitstreams that can be contained within several broadcast media file formats.
Dolby also has new features and a major software upgrade to its Dolby Lake Processor. These include Audinate’s Dante technology, a digital audio networking technology that provides flexibility and ease of use. In addition, the Dolby Lake Processor now supports 16 analog inputs, and with the new input/output matrix function, any input can be connected to any output, providing superior audio routing flexibility. A new preset-management utility provides an intuitive drag-and-drop interface for storing, securing, and recalling presets.
