OTT broadcasters now have the ability to monitor Dolby Atmos® encoded audio thanks to an industry first by TAG Video Systems. TAG has announced that its MCM-9000 Monitoring and Multiviewer platform now supports Dolby Atmos. The unique enhancement allows broadcasters to verify, validate and ensure error-free video and audio content delivery for MPEG-TS and OTT sources. TAG’s MCM-9000 is now certified by Dolby to support Dolby Atmos, while also supporting Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus™ formats.

Dolby Atmos, a 3D surround sound technology developed and adapted for home cinema use by Dolby Laboratories, expands on existing systems by adding multiple height channels, allowing the sound to be interpreted as three-dimensional individual sounds can be precisely placed in the room, including overhead and down low, immersing the listener in an intense experience. The added support, certified by Dolby, enables TAG’s MCM-9000 to decode the Dolby Atmos stream for both MPEG-TS and OTT broadcasted content, allowing for full monitoring and audio bars visualization of the audio on all Dolby Surround and Atmos channels.

The MCM-9000 monitors the Dolby Atmos stream in parallel with the video and regular audio allowing the broadcaster to ensure all structural aspects are correct and to detect any abnormalities. All channels can be decoded down to baseband audio with the Atmos information displayed on the Multiviewer.
