APT said the consortium of German public broadcasters chose APT’s WorldNet Oslo as its standard platform for 5.1 audio contribution and distribution between member states.

The ARD’s decision “will establish a new overlay framework based on the existing E1 network to enable the sharing of high-quality, phase-locked, surround sound content throughout the country,” APT said.

Twelve WorldNet Oslo units will be used in eight member states by broadcasting corporations WDR, BR, HR, RBB, NDR, MDR and SWR.

“Many of these broadcasters have been pioneers in the field of surround sound broadcasting and are already utilizing the WorldNet Oslo to deliver 5.1 audio content to their studios from various concert venues and OB vans,” APT stated.
