Supporting Today’s Dolby Atmos Workflows
The amount of cinematic and live content produced in Dolby Atmos continues to grow, reaching consumers via Blu-ray Disc, satellite and cable, and streaming services. The workflow required to create, transport, and deliver that content to viewers at home can be complex, requiring the ability to work with PCM, Dolby E and ED2, and Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital Plus Atmos formats. Equally at Home for Contribution and Distribution
The LA-5291 integrates well into remote and OB trucks for encoding multi-channel PCM audio into Dolby ED2 or Dolby Digital Plus Atmos for distribution. Further downstream, it can transcode Dolby E and ED2 directly to Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital Plus Atmos, and can encode PCM and PCM with PMD (as specified in SMPTE RDD 49 and SMPTE ST 2109) to Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital Plus Atmos for final distribution.
