VST Version of SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II DebutsDolby to show SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II at GDC (March 04, 2005)
Minnetonka Audio Software announces a Virtual Studio Technology (VST) version of their award winning SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II.
This new VST plug in of Dolbys Pro Logic II encoder will be unveiled at the Dolby booth during the upcoming Game Developers Conference in San Francisco March 7-11, 2005.
Just like Minnetonkas stand-alone software only product, the VST version of SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II allows game developers to easily encode surround sound into stereo delivery formats. The simple, straightforward SurCode interface accepts 6-channel surround input. SurCode outputs an Lt/Rt encoded stereo stream that can be recorded and used in any stereo transmission medium, compatible with millions of decoders around the world.
SurCode for Dolby Pro Logic II also contains a decoder, essential for properly setting the encode parameters. The encoder/decoder can also work in real time to monitor the results of encoder option changes while they are being made.
The VST version for both the PC and the Mac are priced at $495USD.

About Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II encoding is the worlds fastest-growing matrix surround technology, multiplexing five channels of audio into a two-channel, stereo compatible signal. On playback, the Dolby Pro Logic II decoder in your receiver derives five full-range channels, relying on amplitude and phase differences between the channels of the stereo signal.
Not only can Pro Logic II be decoded by virtually every Dolby Digital home theatre system sold today, but media encoded in Dolby Pro Logic II is backwards compatible with the millions of Dolby Pro Logic receivers and decoders in use worldwide.
Virtual Studio Technology (VST) developed by Steinberg and first launched in 1996, VST creates a full, professional studio environment on your PC or Mac. Being an open standard, the possibilities offered by VST are steadily growing.
