DesignWare ARC Audio Dolby TrueHD Decoder

The DesignWare® ARC® Dolby® TrueHD decoder implements a lossless audio coding technology that uses Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP). Designed specifically for high-definition multi-media entertainment systems, its output is bit-for-bit identical to the original studio master. Building on the proven foundation of Dolby Laboratories’ MLP Lossless™ standard, Dolby TrueHD provides expanded bit rates (up to 18 Mbps), additional channel offerings (eight full-range channels), enhanced stereo mix support and the introduction of metadata functionality, including dialogue normalization and dynamic range control. Additionally, Dolby TrueHD can decode MLP Lossless DVD-Audio (DVD-A) content, eliminating the need to invest in two separate decoders.
