    CAT541 Benefits

    Dolby® Digital is the established standard for home theater and broadcast surround sound, and the Dolby Multichannel Dolby Digital Encoder DP569 is the reference Dolby Digital multichannel audio encoder for digital television and DVD-authoring applications.

    With reliability proven in hundreds of TV stations around the world, the Dolby DP569 offers many broadcast-friendly features. These include:

    • An AES reference input that locks the DP569 to the transmission equipment clock reference
    • Selectable sample rate converters on the audio inputs
    • The ability to create SMPTE 339M time stamp data bursts for synchronization with downstream equipment

    The CAT541 DVD Audio Cable Kit allows facilities that install the DP569 as part of a Dolby Digital audio encoding system for DVD to connect the unit to multitrack tape machines and VTRs requiring balanced digital connections. It's also useful in any facility that requires balanced digital connections for the DP569 main digital inputs and outputs.

    • One transformer: 110Ω XLR male to 75Ω BNC (Part Number 54059)
