The C8601 is a module fitting into the C8000 Modular System concept developed by Junger Audio. Configuration and operation are performed via Web Interface.
The C8601 offers full and automatic decoding of up to eight channels of Dolby® E or 5.1 channels of Dolby® Digital streams.
A two channel downmix can be provided for monitoring. Dolby® metadata are decoded and displayed.
One of its most interesting features is the possibility to use the metadata coming with the audio input in one combined stream from upstream devices in the C8000 system (De-embedders, decoders, audio processors). This way, there is no external Metadata path necessary.
Dolby® metadata can be selected in three different ways, from input, preset or extern. Metadata can be displayed, edited and stored. Applications are broad but cover mainly emission and distribution systems, master control switches, Studios, etc.
The Dolby® Laboratories, Inc. have introduced the “data about the audio data“, the Dolby® Metadata, which travel along with the multi channel bit stream from acquisition (point of audio recording) to delivery (Dolby® Digital decoder at home either as part of the TV Set Top Box or the home theatre system). Dolby® Metadata in the end of the day may control the home equipment in a way that the sound impression is as close as possible to what the producers intention was when mixing a movie sound track.
