Steinberg announced support of the DTS (Digital Theater Systems Inc.) encoder for the Nuendo media production system.
“Steinberg is proud to bring DTS-quality encoding to Nuendo,” said Brian McConnon, U.S. marketing manager for Steinberg. “The convenience of having the encoding system on the same platform as the program that is used to create and process the audio drastically reduces production time and ensures the accuracy and quality of the final product.”
The DTS encoding process has been specifically licensed to Steinberg to provide Nuendo users access to the next stage in the surround sound production process. The encoding is integrated as DTS file format in Nuendo’s Export dialog. The necessary routines are all automated so that the user can export the full mix directly as a DTS file, without any previous down-mixing—ready for use in the authoring stage. The DTS-encoded audio can be saved as a .WAV file to directly burn a 5.1 mix to CD or to upload the file for client previews.
The Nuendo DTS Encoder will be available in Q4 2003 and has a SRP of $1,499.99 MSRP. For more, visit www.steinbergusa.net. For more product announcements, visit mixonline.com/products_new_products/index.htm.
