The Dolby MS11 Multistream Decoder provides TV, set-top box, and IC manufacturers with a single-package solution for decoding all premium broadcast audio formats.
Decodes all audio formats required to match worldwide and specific local broadcast standards: Dolby® Digital Plus™, Dolby Digital, HE AAC, and all AAC bitstreams
Supplies full Dolby metadata support for Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, and the Dolby implementation of HE AAC v2 audio formats
Generates a standard Dolby Digital bitstream, up to 5.1 channels, from any incoming audio format and creates a decoded two-channel downmix from any multichannel input so consumers always get a signal that matches their home systems
Delivers audio description services in receiver-mix style, using two simultaneous decoders so broadcasters can transmit a single mix
As TVs and set-top boxes evolve into multipurpose digital media platforms, you face a manufacturing challenge. Content now comes from a variety of sources—and this results in a variety of audio codecs. Yet consumers expect a seamless experience whether they're watching traditional broadcast or streaming from the Internet, PCs, USB keys, game consoles, or mobile devices.
The Dolby Multistream Decoder MS11 delivers the solution. Comprehensive and cost-effective, it reduces the complexity of integrating multiple audio technologies into your new receivers.
The Dolby MS11 also features Dolby Volume, so consumers enjoy consistent volume levels across programs and sources. Although Dolby metadata includes dialnorm parameters, many sources don't include Dolby metadata, so loudness levels may vary widely. Dolby Volume provides a solution that keeps your customers happy.
By including full access to the decoded bitstreams, the Dolby MS11 opens up a whole range of postprocessing opportunities. It can apply Dolby Volume to a decoded 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus input stream and then reencode the stream to Dolby Digital for output to a home theater.
Other postprocessing applications can include virtual surround sound processors and custom equalization of the audio to maximize loudspeaker performance. Additionally, the Dolby MS11 provides explicit testing and support for file playback of ASF and MP4 containers.
The Dolby MS11 includes licenses for the included Dolby technologies at a lower overall cost than separate licenses for existing Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, HE AAC, AAC, and transcoder options.
With its universal capabilities, the Dolby MS11 also simplifies product development and testing. Dolby supplies you with all the deliverables, testing, and technical support you need to make implementation easy.
Include Dolby technologies in your loudness measurement products at no cost.
