Dolby Digital 5.1 Creator technology enables users to record home movies and home video soundtracks in Dolby Digital audio
Nero, leaders in digital media technology, announced today that Dolby Digital 5.1 sound creation has been integrated into NeroVision Express 3, an application of the award-winning Nero 6 software.
Dolby Digital 5.1 Creator is a sophisticated audio coding technology that formats audio content into a multichannel Dolby Digital bitstream, enabling consumers to create home movies with rich, full, surround sound. As a result of its coding efficiencies, 5.1-channel Dolby Digital requires less data than stereo PCM, resulting in savings in disc space and allowing consumers to make longer recordings or store higher-quality video content by assigning higher data rate to video. For mastering 5.1-channel DVD-Video content, NeroVision Express will upmix the audio input material to Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, using the advanced technology of Nero UpMix.
"With Nero, users are completely in control of every aspect of the audio and video creation process," said Greg Rodehau, Director, PC Technology Marketing, Dolby Laboratories. ?Adding Dolby Digital 5.1 Creator enables users to create videos that offer a more immersing and realistic experience to viewers."
NeroVision Express 3 is a user-friendly video editing and authoring tool. It can edit and author video from virtually any input source and record video files to DVD-Video, Video CD (VCD), Super Video CD (SVCD), miniDVD, and now Nero Digital?. Chapters can be created using automatic scene detection, videos can be trimmed in a fast and flexible way, and customized menus can be created using pre-defined layout templates and button frames. Extensive editing is available for more advanced users, while fast and friendly wizards for the keen enthusiast at any skill level are always in control. In addition, when creating a DVD-Video project, the user will now have the option of selecting Dolby Digital 5.1 as the target audio stream.
?Dolby is a household name and a leader in the digital audio reproduction arena,? said Jim Corbett, Executive Director of Nero AG. ?Adding Dolby Digital multichannel capability to Nero?s digital video creation products is the perfect combination of video editing and 5.1 soundtrack creation.?
Nero 6 users have the possibility to purchase the Dolby Digital 5.1 Multichannel Plug-in at the Nero online shop on www.nero.com.
