Neyrinck, a surround sound software developer based in San Francisco, announces a major update to SoundCode For Dolby E that adds support for Windows XP and Windows Vista, and adds features for Avid Media Composer, Apple Final Cut Pro and other media workstation system users. SoundCode For Dolby E is a stand-alone software package and Pro Tools plug-in set for Dolby E encoding and decoding. It is designed for post-production studios, television mixers, and broadcast and content distribution organizations that need to deliver and monitor Dolby E content on videotape or as files.
The new software, Version 1.1.3, is available now for both Windows and Mac OS X, and adds new Dolby E decoding features. According to Neyrinck, the stand-alone software can decode a Dolby E stream faster-than-real time to BWF files that can be directly imported into Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro and other media workstations. It can also play back a Dolby E stream file in real time for auditioning using Core Audio or Windows MME sound hardware.
These new features allow video editors to receive Dolby E content and audition, decode and import it for editing and mixing. The Dolby E encoder has been improved to deliver multi-mono BWF files in addition to interleaved BWF files for direct import into Pro Tools. The new version also brings Pro Tools plug-in support to Windows XP and Vista and is fully compatible with Pro Tools 8 HD and LE. This update makes Neyrinck SoundCode For Dolby E a complete Dolby E encode/decode solution for Media Composer, Final Cut, Pro Tools or any other media workstation that uses BWF audio files.
“SoundCode For Dolby E has been embraced by Pro Tools professionals on Mac OS,” says Paul Neyrinck. “But broadcasters need Dolby E encoding and decoding on their video workstations to do their work as fast as possible. And Windows-based Pro Tools users want to take advantage of SoundCode’s unsurpassed integration. I am very pleased to say that now we offer a solution for nearly everyone, no matter what system they are using.”
