Distribution of multichannel audio for digital television creates significant challenges. One solution that enables transport of eight audio channels over the existing two-channel infrastructure is the Dolby E bit-rate reduction coding system.

In particular, the adaptive transform structure, latency issues, efficient quantization method, and splicing techniques are explored.:
