GefenTV Digital Audio Decoder

Converts up to 5.1 Channel Audio Encoded in Dolby Digital Surround to L/R Analog Audio

The new GefenTV Digital Audio Decoder with Dolby allows any movie or television program broadcasting in 5.1 Dolby digital audio to be decoded, and output in analog two-channel (left/right) format.

This allows the audio from a set-top box, media center PC or component video source to be heard on an existing pair of analog speakers. The GefenTV Digital Audio Decoder with Dolby supports any audio encoded in the Dolby 5.1 surround sound format, decoding it and delivering it in the standard two-channel format.

“This is unique because it means you can listen to movies using just two speakers, while you still enjoy that surround sound feeling,” explained Hagai Gefen, president and CEO of Gefen Inc.

The Digital Audio Decoder provides two inputs (S/PDIF, TOSlink), and supplies a two-channel analog audio (left/right) output. Users can switch between the two inputs using a selector on the Decoder. With this feature, both a set-top box and a computer can be connected and switched to any two-channel audio system.

With a built-in digital to analog converter, a digital interpolation filter and support for up to 6 channels of audio encoded in Dolby Digital, this Decoder provides one of the most robust audio conversion solutions available today.

It eliminates the need to upgrade audio equipment and can lengthen the lifespan of an expensive analog audio system already in use.
