RGB Brings Dolby Surround Sound to TV Everywhere

RGB Networks is bringing big screen to sound to smaller screens and TV Everywhere services by adding support for Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus to its TransAct Packager, a platform that builds adaptive bitrate (ABR) video streams targeted to PCs, tablets, smartphones and other connected devices.

The additions will deliver stereo and surround sound across this array of devices for the mostly commonly used ABR formats, RGB said.

As ABR-based multiscreen services become more mainstream, the focus has moved from simple delivery to ensuring a high-quality experience on par with the premium services consumers expect from their cable, telco or satellite provider, RBG said.

“By partnering with audio leader Dolby to incorporate support for Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound into our TransAct Packager, we are helping video service providers deliver the best audio and video experience across all screens,” said RGB VP of marketing and business development Simone Sassoli, in a statement.

RGB is demonstrating its Dolby-updated platform at the IBC  Conference in  Amsterdam.
