The Ultimate High-Definition Surround Sound Experience
Dolby TrueHD is a lossless compression audio format that enables bit-rate efficiencies (disc and transmission) for a file size half that of uncompressed pulse-code modulation (PCM), while simultaneously delivering a 100 percent studio-master-quality reproduction of the original audio performance. As a result, Dolby TrueHD enables the best possible audio fidelity from Blu-ray Disc and streamed or downloaded media sources.
Dolby TrueHD Features
Transfers data at bit rates of up to 18 Mbps for unmatched sound quality
Delivers up to 16 channels of pristine audio at studio-master quality
Maintains consistent dialogue levels when changing between Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital programming
Includes dynamic range control, enabling reduced peak volume levels without loss of overall sound quality—selectable, ideal for listening without disturbing others
Provides superior 7.1 downmix overload detection and protection
Gives the content creator the ability to include a companion Dolby Digital (640 kbps) 5.1-channel theatrical mix on 7.1-channel Dolby TrueHD titles
Advanced 96k Upsampling
When it comes to original content recorded at 48k, Dolby has taken further steps to ensure clearer, more natural sound by implementing a proven upsampling process developed by Meridian Audio.
This upsampling technique applies higher sample rates and increased playback quality through the application of an advanced apodizing filter that masks undesirable digital artifacts (referred to as pre-ringing) introduced by analog-to-digital (A-to-D) conversion downstream in the recording process. The result is a cleaner high-sampling frequency signal that produces optimized playback quality from your home cinema system.
Dolby TrueHD is therefore able to produce the highest quality lossless Blu-ray audio from content originally recorded at 48k.
World-class 96k upsampling provides a new measure of quality for movies and television programming.
An advanced apodizing filter masks digital audio artifacts introduced in the content-creation process to deliver clearer sound from movies and television shows on Blu-ray Disc.
Full compatibility with all Blu-ray players and A/V receivers means that you don’t need to add hardware or upgrade software.
Blu-ray soundtracks achieve their optimum capability, further enhanced by A/V receivers equipped with 96 kHz digital-to-analog (D-to-A) converters.
