Dolby Digital Plus added to ContentAgent

Root6 Technology has added Dolby Digital Plus to the post-production deliverables on its ContentAgent repurposing platform.

Dolby Digital Plus is a next-generation audio technology for high-definition programming and media.

ContentAgent support will allow extremely low bit rate multichannel sound to be delivered via the web.

The content repurposing platform currently transcodes a host of other commonly used audio formats including MP3, AC3, AAC, WAV, BWAV and AIFF.

ContentAgent product manager Kevin King said: "We are already fulfilling client demand for multi channel audio as part of an automated workflow and it's clear that further advances such as Dolby Digital Plus will play an increasingly important role in the HD content experience."

"Dolby Digital Plus combines the efficiency to meet future broadcast demands with the power and flexibility to realize the full audio potential of the upcoming high-definition experience.

"Built on Dolby Digital, the multichannel audio standard for DVD and HD broadcasts worldwide, Dolby Digital Plus was designed for the delivery formats of the future, but remains fully compatible with all current A/V receivers. With Dolby Digital Plus, you get even higher quality audio, more channels, and greater flexibility."

ContentAgent is used by production companies and broadcasters – including ITV and Pinewood Studios - to re-purpose and convert video and audio content for programmes, archives and online.
