The Dolby® Program Optimizer DP600 includes the world's first intelligent audio analysis and automated loudness normalization engine. It has the ability to encode, decode, convert, and transcode Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus™, and Dolby E.

The Dolby DP600 also features a unique algorithm for upmixing your legacy two-channel audio for 5.1-channel delivery. These features, along with support for many of the most common media file and audio formats in use today, make the Dolby DP600 ideal for integration into your day-to-day file-based broadcast, OTT, cable, satellite, IPTV, and postproduction workflow environments.

The Dolby Program Optimizer DP600-C offers all the capabilities of the Dolby DP600 base model and adds faster-than-real-time file-based encoding, decoding, conversion, and transcoding between audio formats. It also offers a unique, high-quality, single-step Dolby Digital to Dolby Digital Plus transcoder that preserves the metadata and minimizes tandem coding losses.
