A High-Performance Surround Sound Process for Home Video

Document Thumbnail

Video disks, high-fidelity video cassettes, and stereo television bring to the consumer a substantial library of video entertainment with high-quality stereo sound tracks. A growing portion of these are encoded with surround sound using a 4-2-4 matrix-based method particularly suited to front-stage oriented film/video presentation. Home reproduction is accomplished with a processor incorporating dynamic matrix modification to stabilize and enhance directional effects and a delayed surround channel to aid forward localization of front sound.
