T14 - Surround Sound Formats

Hugh Robjohns, Technical Editor and Trainer, Project Manager

After many years of Surround Sound becoming mainstream in the broadcast business, this tutorial looks back at the basics of formats and technical details of surround sound, covering diverse matrix techniques like Dolby Surround, compression systems like dts or Dolby AC-3, as well as broadcast-specific coding schemes like Dolby E. Metadata, lineup tones, and mixing issues with respect to the coding systems will be touched upon, too.
