Steinberg Media Technologies announced the availability of its Nuendo DTS Encoder plug-in, which makes the DTS format available to all Nuendo users. It is now shipping as a cross-platform version for Mac OS X and Windows 2000/XP.
Incorporated within the Nuendo Export dialog, Steinberg’s Nuendo DTS Encoder allows users to export single files or an entire surround mix of up to 5.1 channels in the DTS format.
And because the Nuendo DTS Encoder uses the Nuendo export dialog, exports to DTS format are processed faster than real time.
An integrated option to export as DTS .WAV files allows the burning of encoded files to CD for playback of a DTS stream via the digital output of any CD player. The Nuendo DTS Encoder will also create additional discreet .WAV files of the exported audio corresponding to the number of encoded and internally decoded channels, and automatically place them on newly created tracks in the Nuendo project. As a result, the Nuendo implementation of the DTS technology allows for monitoring the complete encoding/decoding process on a per-channel basis.
According to Steinberg’s senior product manager for Nuendo, Lars Baumann, “This product release is a major step for Nuendo, adding yet another important product to the Nuendo range of surround production tools by adding support for this increasingly important format. The DTS-encoding algorithm and the Nuendo audio engine have one thing in common, making the DTS Encoder a perfect match for any
Nuendo system: They both sound excellent.”
