New for NAB: Dolby Encoding for Broadcast

New Product Information for NAB 2010 – 7630 Dolby E Encoder and 7615 Dolby E Decoder

New for NAB 2010, Ensemble Designs is introducing the 7630 Dolby E Encoder and 7615 Dolby E Decoder as part of the Avenue signal integration system for broadcasters.

The new Dolby E choices are for use with the new Avenue 9600 Audio Embedder, Disembedder and Data Inserter, a sixteen-channel module that handles both AES digital audio and analog audio. 3 Gb/s, HD and SD Video is supported.

The 7615 decoder is used in conjunction with the 9600 and can be fed from either an AES input or an AES stream disembedded from the incoming SDI signal. The resulting discrete surround signals are then selectable as inputs to the sixteen-channel mixer/shuffler.

The 7630 Dolby E encoder is fed from selected outputs of the 9600’s sixteen-channel mixer/shuffler. The resulting encoded bit stream can be output both on an AES output and embedded into the SDI output.

Additionally, the 9600 fully supports embedding and disembedding of encoded multi-channel bit streams such as AC-3 and Dolby E.

“Multi-channel applications such as secondary audio processing are getting so much attention by broadcasters,” said Mondae Hott, Director of Sales at Ensemble Designs. “Larger broadcasters and international broadcasters work with 12 or 16 channels of audio on a regular basis. And they are still asking for analog audio to support monitoring too.”

Based in Grass Valley, California, Ensemble Designs is in their 20th year of business and is a leading provider of signal processing and infrastructure products to the professional broadcast industry, and other government and commercial applications. Customers include RAI, CBS News, NASA, Major League Baseball, Olympic Broadcast Organisation, Sky, ESPN, The Moving Picture Company and TVNZ.
