Publish date:

SRS Labs unveiled the CSE-06P Portable Circle Surround Encoder here at NAB2006.
The portable encoder can prepare 5.1- or 6.0 multichannel audio for recording on two-channel recorders and ENG/EFP cameras. The unit includes a surround headphone-monitoring mode, SRS Headphone PRO, which monitors discrete 5.1-channel mixes over conventional headphones.
The upgraded SRS Circle Surround TDM Pro 2.0 plug-in for Digidesign's Pro Tools Series digital audio workstations includes a new Music Mode for mixing and monitoring SRS Circle Surround-encoded music material. The plug-in also features the Xtract up-mixing feature, which produces 6.1-channel surround sound mixes from mono and stereo material.

With consumers spending money on surround products, the first challenge facing surround sound for HD Radio will be deciding on a standard of encoding before HD Radio becomes known solely as an expensive form of traditional stereo radio.
