Dolby License Fee
on Jul 10, 2008 at 3:32:01 am

I contacted Dolby and they gave me a list of their license fees for exhibition of a digital video master (in my case HDCAM) with a Dolby-E and LTRT mix. Is there any way to encode a 5.1 mix for festival exhibition that doesn't require a Dolby license? I'd rather not mess with AC3 encoding because of the loss of quality. Thanks.

Hello Ryan and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum

Tough call. There the Holophone ncode box that runs at mic level. It's a 5.1 box but you don't get Dolby E.

There might be some Dolby E solutions here:

or find a studio where you can do the encode.
