Downmix 8 Channels of Audio with AVPro Edge’s AC-AVDM-AUHD Bit Stream Decoder

Capable of decoding audio signals like DTS-HD® and Dolby Audio™ (Dolby 7.1 and Dolby Atmos), AVPro Edge’s all new 8 channel decoder solves audio distribution issues in high bandwidth A/V installations.

AVPro Edge is proud to announce the AC-AVDM-AUHD, a 4K UHD HDMI with Dolby Audio™ and DTS-HD® stereo audio decoder that supports the transmission of high bandwidth, up to 18Gbps, video through HDMI while allowing the associated audio signal to be simultaneously extracted and split into both digital and analog audio outputs, providing high quality audio and video performance.

This unit can decode standard Dolby Audio & DTS-HD formats up to 7.1 then output the audio as stereo (LPCM 2.0) over HDMI, S/PDIF (optical and coaxial) as well as analog RCA connections. The AC-AVDM-AUHD can also manage Dolby Atmos signals by extracting 7.1 channels from Atmos and down-mixing that audio. It can support the pass-through of HD and standard bitstream formats as well as LPCM 7.1 with audio sampling rates up to 192 kHz if needed.

This product was manufactured to solve audio distribution issues in high bandwidth A/V installations. With features like EDID management, HDCP 2.2 support, 4K UHD resolution up to [email protected] (YUV 4:4:4, 8-bit) support on the HDMI input and output, full 12 bit HDR and ARC (Audio Return Channel) support, the AC-AVDM-AUHD is a powerhouse solution for any home theater or multi-zone distribution system.

Matt Murray of AVPro Global stated, “The AC-AVDM-AUHD is an audio tool box for integrators. It is the first device capable of down-mixing 7.1ch audio bitstreams including Dolby Audio and DTS-HD. It also handles metadata enhanced formats for object based audio like Atmos or DTS-X. For the first time integrators can send uncompressed 7.1ch audio to an AVR and simultaneously send stereo audio to a distributed audio system. In addition, it can handle ARC and AVR video bypass for older devices that support 7.1ch audio but not full 4K video. The device supports full 18Gbps video as well, including HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision. This is something installers have been asking for and most certainly need now. We are happy to provide the solution.”
