For normal SD DVDs, I know 48 KHz, 16-bit audio was suitable as source audio quality.

I'm looking into making a significant investment in stock audio (music, SFX, etc...). I'd like to 'future-proof' myself a bit for the day that Blu-Ray becomes mainstream. What minimum source audio quality should I be looking for?

Is 48KHz, 16-bit still acceptable for blu-ray?

Hello Phillip,

Actually getting any sources of SFX and/or music over 16-bit, 44.1 may be a problem. :) Most of those files are sent out on regular CDs.

There may be higher res versions. I haven't bothered to look lately.

Anyone?

Regards,

Ty Ford

Hey there Phillip, I know you posted this over a year ago, but i've got a solution for you here. Minnetonka Audio Software and DTS have released products for encoding and decoding audio for DTS-HD formats. It is called SurCode DTS-HD for Compressor. If you have any questions about it feel free to email me directly or check out the website here: http://www.dtshdforcompressor.com

My email: andrew@minnetonkaaudio.com

Thanks!
