Dolby E Now Supports 24PDolby ships tri-level sync interface
has begun shipping the new DP579 Dolby E Tri-Level Sync Interface unit today. The DP579 is used in conjunction with the DP571 and DP572 Dolby E encoder and decoder to generate 23.98 or 24 fps Dolby E streams.
The DP579 is the first unit to provide 24P Dolby E coding technology, including metadata. The DP579 Dolby E Tri-Level Sync Interface converts tri-level video sync into Dolby Black (a video reference that is used by the Dolby E codecs).
According to Dolby, Dolby E has been developed specifically for distribution, rather than emission, for applications such as sending a program to a local station for commercial insertion, routing it within the same studio for voice-over editing or sending it via satellite to another broadcast facility. Dolby E programs can withstand 10 or more tandem encode/decode cycles without audible degradation.
The DP579 Dolby E Tri-Level Sync Interface carries a list price of $5,000. For more information, visit http://www.dolby.com/tvaudio.
