• Dolby Branchpoint Preview Player

    The Dolby Branchpoint Preview Player is a specialized decoder that lets you emulate branch points before authoring a Blu-ray Disc.

    Preview the Branch Points in Audio Files

    The Dolby® Branchpoint Preview Player lets you listen to any single branch point in an audio file as well as to different segments already branched.

    The player can be used with both Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital soundtracks independently. For continuity, you can select to hear up to 10 seconds before and after each branch point.

    Designed for Mac

    The Branchpoint Preview Player is designed specifically for the Mac® computer platform and supports Apple® Core Audio devices to send audio to a multichannel speaker system.

    This tool is designed to run locally on a single computer workstation.
