SurCode for Dolby E Gets Creative with Adobe

Company releases Dolby E toolset for Creative Cloud suite

SurCode for Dolby E in Premier Pro CC

MINNETONKA, MN — Minnetonka Audio Software, Incorporated, a leader in production software for motion picture, broadcast surround sound and consumer electronics applications, announced today the completion of validation tests on their SurCode for Dolby® E decoder for use within Adobe Systems Incorporated’s new Creative Cloud application suite.

Dolby E is the industry standard system for multichannel digital audio carriage across an asset’s entire post–production life cycle, and SurCode for Dolby E is the Dolby–certified industry benchmark for file–based processing of Dolby E. The 2.1 version of SurCode for Dolby E decoder has passed Adobe’s stringent requirements for compatibility with Creative Cloud’s VST hosting.

The superior Dolby E capabilities of SurCode are now available in Adobe’s benchmark production suite, including Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC and Adobe Audition® CC. SurCode for Dolby E is the only product line that addresses Dolby E workflows across all popular production platforms. SurCode for Dolby E’s support for Creative Cloud joins the existing VST 2.4 plug–in support of other surround–capable hosts, including Fairlight, Nuendo, Pyramix and Sequoia. One license runs SurCode for Dolby E on any and all platforms, including Final Cut Pro and across Avid’s product lines.

As a long standing development partner, Adobe Systems is a pivotal part of Minnetonka Audio’s platform strategy. “Adobe came to us with a request to bring SurCode for Dolby E into the Creative Suite fold,” said Minnetonka Audio president John Schur. “We are excited to be able to validate a Dolby E workflow in Premier Pro CC, strengthening the Creative Suite brand with new post–production capabilities.”

Version 2.1 of SurCode for Dolby E Encoder and Decoder and version 2.0 of SurCode for Dolby E Stream Player are no–cost upgrades for existing license holders, and a how–to video will be available on MASI’s YouTube channel for the Adobe Premier Pro CC use case. The latest releases are available, as individual products and value–focused bundles, through Minnetonka Audio’s international network of resellers and system integrators.
