Dolby unveils stand-alone encoder for Media Producer suite

Dolby Laboratories has unveiled an addition to its Dolby Media Producer product line. Designed for smaller post-production facilities, Dolby Media Encoder SE (Stand-alone Edition) is a cost-effective, single-computer software encoding solution that offers the same level of high-quality encoding capabilities as the original network version. Dolby Media Encoder SE encodes all Dolby audio technologies used in packaged media applications, including Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and MLP Lossless. The product brings file-based encoding to smaller post-production facilities creating audio files for DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, HD-DVD and Blu-ray.

By providing full quality equivalence to the network version, Dolby Media Encoder SE brings the full technology suite of the Dolby Media Producer line to smaller facilities that don't require networking capability. Dolby Media Producer SE is designed to work beside Dolby Media Decoder and Dolby Media Tools in the same way as the network version, and is expected to be available this month.
