Dolby Laboratories has nnounced a new advancement in lossless audio technology, the Dolby TrueHD.
The TrueHD is designed to be paired up with the most recent developments in high-definition optical disc formats, says Dolby. Apparently, the audio is equal to that of the “highest-resolution studio masters currently available.”
Dolby’s latest creation is currently being showcased at it’s CEDIA Expo exhibit booth – that’s #538 just in case there’s a few of you attending. The new technology is being sold as essential for next-gen hi-def entertainment, and has been adopted for use with both HD DVD and Blu-ray disc formats.
It’s a step up from the previous MLP Lossless, having introduced higher bit rates, enhanced stereo mix support, additional channels and extensive metadata functionality, which includes both dynamic range control and dialogue normalisation.
