France Incorporates Dolby Digital Plus And Dolby Digital Sound Into TNT HD Terrestrial HD Network, A Global First

Dolby_LOGO_Gold_Dolby_Digital(2).jpgFrance has chosen to incorporate Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital sound into the country's new high-definition terrestrial broadcast system, Télévision Numérique Terrestre HD (TNT HD). It's the first use of Dolby Digital sound in a terrestrial HD broadcast platform, and will allow viewers of the five new channels on the French platform to receive audio in both 5.1-channel surround sound and stereo.

Because Dolby Digital sound is optimal for limited bandwidth environments, TNT HD is able to simultaneously deliver high-quality video while still decoding Dolby Digital broadcast bitstreams and delivering high-def sound. In conjunction with the new broadcast platform, all HD-ready TV's sold in France must include Dolby Digital Plus and High Efficiency AAC (HE AAC) audio by December 2008.
