Neyrinck, a leading software developer specializing in professional surround sound products, introduces of SoundCode For Dolby E, a stand-alone software package and Pro Tools plug-in set for managing Dolby metadata and Dolby E encoding and decoding functions for multichannel Broadcast WAV files (MBWF). SoundCode For Dolby E is designed for post-production studios, TV mixers, broadcast and content distribution organizations that need to deliver and monitor Dolby E content on videotape or as files.

The software includes two modules: the Broadcast Encoder and the Broadcast Monitor. At the heart of the Broadcast Encoder is the ability to encode a Dolby E stream file, or combine audio and Dolby metadata into a MBWF file for use by other systems. The Broadcast Monitor enables decoding of Dolby E streams, playback of Dolby E and MBWF files, and the ability to display Dolby E metadata from files or Dolby E streams. These functions are fully certified, professional implementations of Dolby E.

“When I started to work on SoundCode For Dolby E,” says Paul Neyrinck, “I wanted to make it a lot simpler for audio professionals to deliver Dolby E streams and metadata now and in the future. Broadcast delivery requirements are evolving from videotape to files so professionals need a Dolby E encoding and decoding system that works for both. Many users have embraced our SoundCode for Dolby Digital and DTS products for mastering-quality audio delivery, so I knew that Dolby E could be integrated directly into Pro Tools where so much broadcast audio originates from. But today’s editors need flexibility, so we added a stand-alone application to enable batch processing and integration with almost any other audio/video editing system. By giving the editor the ability to handle metadata, encoding, and decoding in their workstation, I believe the result is a simpler, consistent, and reliable Dolby E workflow, which greatly enhances the listening experience.”

Also available from Neyrinck is SoundCode for Broadcast, available for OS X and Windows platforms, which includes all the Metadata and MBWF features of SoundCode for Dolby E but without the Dolby E Encode and Decode functions. SoundCode for Broadcast is also perfect for sending files from Pro Tools to the Dolby DP600.

SoundCode for Dolby E is available directly from and can also be purchased as an upgrade to SoundCode for Broadcast users. Neyrinck states that Windows support for SoundCode For Dolby E is coming soon.
