Description :
SurCode for Dolby E Decoder plug-in is the ideal way to integrate into existing workflows on various audio workstations,
in different studios and in different formats.

The DOLBY E format is a high quality 8-channel audio coding system designed specifically for distribution in broadcast television, as DOLBY DIGITAL is not suitable for this very application. Integration with existing 2-channel infrastructure is achieved thanks to the fact that DOLBY E digital stream looks exactly like AES \ EBU digital audio. This allows audio to be propagated over a single AES-3 pair, or to be recorded on 2 audio tracks of digital audio tape to create a standard audio-picture data interchange format. Audio coding in DOLBY E format is designed in such a way that in the process of preparation and distribution of programs of the DVB standard it withstands 10 or more cycles of encoding-decoding, as required by the standard. And since DOLBY E audio transmission parameters are synchronized with video data, editing in “assembly” (ASSEMBLY) or “insert” (INSERT) modes is performed without unpleasant audible noise in the form of clicks and squeaks. And all this – regardless of how the editing is going, on an audio DAT cassette, videotapes or at work computer stations. Audio encoding or decoding in DOLBY E format takes exactly 1 video frame, simplifying the synchronization of sound and image, and DOLBY DIGITAL metadata (audio service data, see figures) is also conveniently transported as part of the DOLBY E digital stream. The sound remains in DOLBY E format. right before the final master control, and only then transcoded into DOLBY DIGITAL for broadcast (broadcast or transmission over cable networks).
