DVEO Encodes Dolby Digital with Minnetonka Audio
Minnetonka Audio Provides SurCode for Dolby Digital 5.1 Technology to DVEO
Minnetonka Audio Software, Inc. announced today that DVEO, a provider of professional broadcast quality subsystems since 1982, has entered into an OEM agreement to license SurCode for Dolby Digital 5.1 encoder and decoder technology from Minnetonka Audio Software.
SurCode for Dolby Digital 5.1 creates fully compliant Dolby Digital AC-3 files from multichannel WAV or AIFF sources. As a Dolby-certified product, the encoded audio files are compatible with all Dolby Digital-branded decoders, in either software or hardware versions. DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc., has licensed the OEM version of SurCode for Dolby Digital as an option for their MultiStreamer(tm) and MPEG Gearbox product families of broadcast quality multichannel MPEG-2 to H.264 streaming transcoders.
"We are proud to have DVEO as our newest OEM partner," said Eric Jorde, North American Business Development Manager for Minnetonka Audio. "DVEO needed to add Dolby Digital encoding to their powerful video transcoding products and they chose Minnetonka Audio to meet this requirement. This agreement creates a complete solution for standards-compliant video streaming."
The MultiStreamer and MPEG Gearbox transcoders capture various video formats and send multiple simultaneous IP streams to iOS, CDNs, and remote video capture devices. DVEO will enhance their transcoders by offering a reliable solution for converting audio files to AC-3, so they chose SurCode for Dolby Digital 5.1 OEM.
"Minnetonka Audio is a well-established audio company with an excellent reputation," stated Scott Grizzle, Product Manager for DVEO. "We are very happy to license their plug-ins and SDK, which enable best-of-class encoding. MultiStreamer and MPEG Gearbox customers now have the option of transcoding their audio into high quality AC-3 via SurCode for Dolby Digital 5.1."
