The DTS Neural Surround™ DownMix provides a process for taking a 5.1 mix and creating a stereo mix. This is called a LtRt watermarked signal and is backwards-compatible with Dolby® ProLogic® II. The stereo mix can be monitored, mixed, stored, edited and played back using a stereo audio infrastructure.
By transforming signal sources, intensity, time, coherence, polarity and phase into pure intensity and coherence before the six channels are combined, the DownMix amelio-rates problems suffered in traditional matrix encode systems (comb filtering, spatial distortion, etc). This proprietary DTS Neural Surround™ process, or watermark, guarantees that surround information is faithfully reproduced when later rendered by the UpMix and is backwards-compatible with Dolby® ProLogic II®. The stereo mix can be monitored, mixed, stored, edited and played back using a stereo audio infrastructure. In brief, the DownMix produces a stereo DownMix that accurately represents the original content, whether monitored in mono, stereo, matrix or Neural 5.1 Surround Sound.
The Selenio 6800+ platform includes the all-in-one APM6803+ and DAPM6802+ Advanced Audio Processing modules.
There is a plug-in option available for adding the DownMix to the Selenio X50™ and Selenio X100™ video and audio processors.
The Selenio™ Media Convergence Platform supports DTS Neural Surround™ DownMix as well.
Versions are available (see ordering information) for applications where DownMix and Loudness Control are required.
