Euro1080 Adopts aacPlus/DTS Surround Sound for New MPEG-4 HDTV Transmissions

The European HDTV service utilizes benefits of advanced MPEG-4 audio solution to provide Surround sound and multilingual HDTV.

HDTV service Euro1080 has announced that it will implement aacPlus/DTS multi-channel audio with its switch from MPEG-2 to higher quality MPEG-4 HD transmissions.

The broadcaster, which switched to the higher quality MPEG-4 transmissions across all of its channels on 2 January, will deliver aacPlus multi-channel audio over the satellite to consumer?s new generation of MPEG-4 set top boxes for HDTV, where it is transcoded to DTS Digital Surround, for decoding in home theatre systems in the usual way.

Until now, the barrier to broadcasters implementing the latest aacPlus audio codec for multi-channel HDTV broadcast has been the lack of ability for consumers to decode the surround sound in the home. Working with Coding Technologies in Europe, DTS has enabled the 'transcoding' of the advanced aacPlus MPEG-4 audio codec to DTS Digital Surround in the set-top box.

With the efficiency and audio quality of the aacPlus codec, consumers can now receive much more HDTV programming in high quality surround sound, allowing broadcasters to deliver more content in 5.1-channels than ever before. They can also provide programming with multiple language surround soundtracks, as on DVD releases, and can now do so with immediate access to the entire installed base of DTS-enabled home theater systems.
