Penteo Surround Opens New Offices in LA, NYC & London

Sales Reps Appointed for New Stereo-to-5.1 Conversion

Penteo(r) Surround, creator of the new industry standard for the conversion of stereo audio to optimum quality 5.1 Surround Sound, has opened new offices in Los Angeles, New York City, and London. The company recently introduced two new products that will be demonstrated at NAB 2010 in Las Vegas: the Penteo PostPro(tm) Desktop and Penteo PostPro(tm) Rackmount units.

Unlike previous attempts to create 5.1 audio, Penteo works by “panorama slicing”(tm) the stereo mix into its original left-to-right components, then re-maps those components into their respective positions in a 5.1 field. Because Penteo does not alter any phase components or levels, the resulting 5.1 mix flawlessly downmixes back to the original stereo.

Penteo Surround is featured in the films: “Book of Eli,” “Watchmen,” and the Academy Award-winning “Inglourious Basterds.” The company has licensed its technology to Orban(r) for their Optimod(r) 8585. Orban provides premium sound processing to HDTV, radio and Internet streaming broadcasters worldwide. “The Penteo system is based on entirely new stereo analysis,” says John Wheeler, Penteo founder and inventor of the new technology. “We believe it’s the first truly significant breakthrough in the art of converting stereo into 5.1 surround sound in the last 15 years.”

Penteo, LLC, based in Los Angeles and the Bay Area of San Francisco, California, with additional offices in New York and London, has created cutting-edge technologies and services that convert any stereo audio into 5.1 surround sound, with automatic downmixing back to the original stereo. The company has developed proprietary, patent-pending technologies and applications that allow television, film, and music industry professionals to convert and deliver their stereo content and assets into superior-quality 5.1 surround sound, setting a new standard in completely downconvertible, stereo-compatible 5.1 audio processing.
