Provideo is the first Australian company to be accepted by Dolby Laboratories into its Dolby E partner program. Provideo's acceptance as a Dolby E partner follows testing at the Dolby Laboratories in the United Kingdom of its new HMD-104N product. The HMD-104N is a HDTV down converting distribution amplifier combining four re-clocked HD outputs with four down converted SD outputs supporting 16:9 letterbox, 4:3 anamorphic and 4:3 center cut modes. The card also allows either Dolby E or AES audio to be re-embedded into the down converted SD output.
FOR-A adds Dolby E support to HD frame rate converter
Integrating Dolby E processing inside the video converter saves cost, space and setup time compared with the alternative external equipment.
