Dolby® TrueHD Digital Out unleashes the ultimate high-definition audio experience:
Transports Dolby TrueHD bitstreams from Blu-ray Disc™ players via HDMI™ 1.3 or later to compatible A/V receivers for decoding
Saves the cost of a Dolby TrueHD decoder within the Blu-ray Disc player while enabling 100 percent lossless audio that is bit-for-bit identical to the original studio master from releases with Dolby TrueHD soundtracks
Enables single-cable HDMI connection for both HD video and lossless audio, providing easy installation and ultimate performance
Dolby TrueHD Digital Out lets you offer an attractive, economical option for Blu-ray Disc players that deliver the true lossless audio performance of Dolby TrueHD to home theater enthusiasts with the latest playback equipment. It saves you and your customers the cost and complexity of a Dolby TrueHD decoder within the Blu-ray Disc player, while enabling the home theater systems that feature built-in Dolby TrueHD decoding to deliver uncompromised lossless, studio master–quality audio from Blu-ray Disc releases with Dolby TrueHD soundtracks.
Note: Dolby TrueHD decoding is still needed in a Blu-ray Disc player if you wish to ensure that Dolby TrueHD soundtracks can be combined with the full benefits of advanced Blu-ray Disc features such as BonusView and BD-Live™, and experienced through TV sets and legacy home theater systems.
With Dolby TrueHD Digital Out technology, your products can stand out from the competition by delivering at lower cost studio-quality surround sound that is identical to the original recording. In addition, you can take advantage of the Dolby TrueHD Digital Out logo to signify its presence in your product. This signals to your customers that you have included the latest in the long line of Dolby developments.
