The SurCode Encoder for DTS-HD for Compressor is a professional audio encoder plug-in for Apple Compressor 3, capable ofproducing encoded streams directly from Apple Final Cut Studio and Logic Studio.

For those working with surround music, SurCode Encoder for DTS-HD for Compressor can create 5.1 DTS .wav files for DTS Music Discs, which can be burned on a standard CD-R for playback on any DTS compatible system. Utilizing the capabilities of Compressor 3, the Encoder plug-in can deliver multiple DTS encoded stream types for batch processing to local drives or across networks.

The SurCode Decoder for DTS-HD for QuickTime offers QuickTime users the ability to playback DTS stream types for quality control and sync check prior to disc authoring. All encoded DTS file types can be played back, from DTS-HD Master Audio to DTS Express, utilizing the easy-to-use QuickTime Player application. SurCode Decoder for DTS-HD for QuickTime is included with every license of SurCode Encoder for DTS-HD for Compressor, and is also available for purchase separately.
