ENCO Systems said it will support multichannel sound, configured as 5.1 or 7.1 in its DADpro32 and DADtv products.
President Eugene Novacek said, "Surround sound is here in the television space and it's coming for HD Radio." He said the company is "the first digital audio automation and playout system to support multichannel 5.1 and 7.1 sound. Our DADtv clients have been asking for it, and we believe our radio clients will be asking for it soon."
Support will be included in products at no additional charge. The 5.1 and 7.1 audio files appear to the user the same way as stereo or mono files appear. Files are stored as single linear uncompressed files using interleaved .WAV streams. Implementing multichannel sound on legacy DADpro32 and DADtv may require replacing the audio card, the company said.
Multichannel support was expected to begin shipping in November.
