Windows 7 to get Dolby Digital Plus support

The upcoming Windows 7 platform will be compatible with Dolby Digital’s latest high-efficiency audio codec, known as Dolby Digital Plus.

The codec is said to maintain the quality expected of Dolby Digital at a lower data rate and will be compatible with all of the group’s current A/V receivers.

“As Windows 7 amplifies the entertainment experience on the PC, it makes sense that Dolby Digital Plus is selected as the audio format for delivering high-quality surround sound,” said Ramzi Haidamus, VP of sales at Dolby.

“With Blu-ray Disc, DTV broadcasts, and rich multimedia delivered through the Internet, Dolby Digital Plus ensures that people will hear outstanding audio on any device.”
