MTV Networks Music Group launches HD Channel in Dolby Digital 5.1

MTV Networks Music Group launched its first HD channel, MHD, with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.

MHD is carrying music-based native-HD programming, including "MTV Unplugged," "VH1 Storytellers," and "CMT Crossroads;" music events such as the "MTV Video Music Awards;" new shows from its Vail studio in Colorado, including "UnCompressed;" and the exclusive concert series "Music With Altitude." Each program will be broadcast using Dolby Digital 5.1.

To capture the full impact of sound from live concerts, special events, and interviews, MHD will leverage Dolby E, a professional-quality compression technology, to deliver the multichannel audio signal to its broadcast centers. The audio will then be re-encoded into Dolby Digital 5.1 for transmission to cable head-ends and satellite providers from which is transmitted to viewers.

Dolby Digital delivers up to 5.1 discrete channels of surround sound.
