Dolby rolls out new audio codec for HD-DVD, other uses at AES convention

Dolby Laboratories made its first public demonstration of Dolby Digital Plus, a new versatile audio codec designed for the next generation of audio and video storage and delivery systems.

Dolby showed the new codec at the 117th AES convention in San Francisco. The DVD Forum recently selected Dolby Digital Plus as a mandatory standard audio format for HD-DVD.

Dolby Digital Plus offers bit-rate and channel extendibility, and is an extension of the Dolby Digital format, the audio compression standard for DVD video players worldwide and the mandated or de facto standard for many DTV systems around the world.
