  • SurCode for Dolby E Encoder - Plug-In Encoder

    SurCode for Dolby E Encoder from Minnetonka is a fully licensed and certified file-based software plug-in encoder for Dolby E, for use with Pro Tools and VST compliant applications. The plug-in encodes Dolby E files from discrete PCM files, and is the perfect way to integrate Dolby E into existing workflows on different audio workstations, in different studios, and in various formats.

    The Dolby E Encoder provides encoding of up to 8 channels of audio, with a variety of user selectable program configurations. These range from 5.1 and stereo, to 4 independent stereo or 8 mono channels. It also includes full input of Dolby E and program metadata, all via a simple user interface.

    When used with Pro Tools, the plug-in appears in the AudioSuite menu and will encode audio in sync with the Pro Tools timeline. Encoding is as simple as selecting a file or part of a file, going to the AudioSuite menu and selecting the encoder, entering the required metadata, and hitting encode.

    Note: iLok required if one is not already on the system.

  • SurCode for Dolby E Decoder - Plug-In Decoder

    SurCode for Dolby E Decoder from Minnetonka is a plug-in that offers the unique ability to decode Dolby E files back to discrete PCM data in a convenient software plug-in format. The plug-in is the perfect way to integrate Dolby E into existing workflows on different audio workstations, in different studios and in various formats.

    The Dolby E decoder plug-in appears in the insert chain on a Pro Tools channel strip with all other RTAS plug-ins, and will decode the audio in sync with the Pro Tools timeline. This method is far more time conserving than using external hardware. It's as simple as dropping the decoder into your Pro Tools mixer and selecting a Dolby E file. In a single pass, you can decode all 8 channels of a Dolby E stream.

    As a complete standalone solution, AudioTools AWE offers unparalleled flexibility with a streamlined workflow that can decode one, hundreds, or even thousands of Dolby E Files in one pass. Dropping a file into the "Hot Folder" will instantly decode the file, and allow for processing through a choice of AWE or VST plug-ins, or external processors, and could even re-encode to Dolby Digital automatically.

    While the Pro Tools plug-in allows integrated access to Dolby E files, the AudioTools AWE plug-in has been designed to offload and automate workflow from the DAW.

    Note: iLok required if one is not present on the system.

    • Use the decoder as a real-time Dolby E stream player for quality control

    As a complement to a complete Dolby E workflow, or a low cost quality control solution for the production chain, the player easily integrates the Dolby E format into existing workflows across platforms and applications, providing more choice for video post production professionals.

  • Dolby Media Meter 2

    The Minnetonka Audio Dolby Media Meter 2 Software is designed to measure loudness in program material for media, broadcast, cinema trailers, games, and VOD. Industry standards require that the audio levels of program material fall within defined ranges, which in turn requires tools that can accurately measure loudness. The software is adapted from the Dolby DP600 Program Optimizer and complies with ITU-R BS.1770 and EBU R-128 loudness measurement specifications.

    The software includes a dialogue intelligence feature which automatically detects speech in audio and measures loudness where dialogue occurs. You can also select different ways of measuring loudness depending upon the application, such as true peak, Leq(A), and Leq(m) for commercials and movie trailers. The software features real-time graphing, level meters, a user-selectable peak limiter, and warning settings for when loudness exceeds a user-defined threshold.

    The software runs as a stand-alone application on both Mac and Windows and as a plug-in with Pro Tools AudioSuite, Pro Tools RTAS, VST, and AU on Mac. All of these versions of the software can generate a log file for the loudness measurements. The stand-alone version can process audio faster than real-time depending upon hardware requirements, which is useful when mastering optical media and in broadcast, production, and postproduction quality control applications. As a plug-in, the software can simultaneously display long-term and short-term loudness levels while mixing. The software supports Dolby E, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and PCM file formats.

  • Dolby Media Emulator for Metadata Authoring

    The Dolby Media Emulator from Minnetonka is an RTAS and VST compatible plug-in that provides real-time emulation of multiple Dolby broadcast formats and metadata authoring. It can emulate Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby E, and HE-AAC. The plug-in also allows you to determine and set dialog normalization. Its loudness meter supports ITU-R BS.1770-1, ITU-R BS.1770-2 as well as EBU R128.

    Please note: This product is an electronic download and requires an iLok for its license.
