What are DVD-Audio discs? | Rotel

Frequently Asked Questions

What are DVD-Audio discs?

DVD-Audio (also abbreviated as DVD-A) is a digital format designed for recording high-resolution audio on DVD. DVD-Audio does not conform to the DVD-Video disc standard, and in general DVD-Audio discs have very limited video content.

DVD-Audio discs can support up to 6 channels of mono audio. Mono and stereo audio tracks are supported up to 24-bit/192 kHz, and 5.1-channel surround tracks are supported up to 24-bit/96 kHz. Discs can have multiple tracks, for example, a DVD-A disc can contain both a 24-bit/192kHz stereo audio track and a 5.1-channel 24-bit/96kHz surround audio track.

High resolution audio is stored on DVD-A discs in linear PCM format. Audio can be stored on disc uncompressed or compressed using the Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP) lossless compression format. Depending on the number of audio tracks on the disc, compression may be required.

Although a DVD-Audio player is required to access and play high-resolution audio on a DVD-A disc, most DVD-A discs are also backward compatible and play on a standard DVD-Video disc player. Most DVD-A discs contain DVD-Video compatible data with standard Dolby Digital 5.1 or Dolby Digital 2.0 audio that can be played on a standard DVD player. Some DVD-A discs even contain DTS 9 audio tracks6/24.

The most common connection to an audio system for a DVD-A player is a 6-channel analog connection, allowing the DVD-A player to decode high-resolution audio in the player and stream it to the audio system in analog format. All current Rotel receivers and surround processors provide an analog multi-channel input that allows you to connect a DVD-Audio disc player.

Due to the wide bandwidth required for HD audio, the only digital cable with enough bandwidth to digitally stream HD audio tracks from a DVD-A disc is HDMI. Because DVD-A discs use Linear PCM as the audio format, any HDMI device that supports audio over HDMI must be able to play DVD-A disc audio over HDMI.

What is DVD video? | Tim Computers

This is a digital video compressed
algorithm MPEG-2 and recorded on a DVD. Format – 25
frames per second with a resolution of 720 x 576 pixels at
color depth 24-bit (PAL) or 30 frames 720 x 480 x 24-bit
(NTSC). In uncompressed form, this is a stream of 30Mb per second, and
a two-hour film will take more than 100
gigabyte. This is a huge volume, so
MPEG-2 compression is used.

DVDs have a capacity of 4.7 Gb to
17Gb depending on the type. At the same time, it does not change
recording density, and the type of information placement.
Discs are single-sided, single-layer,
single-sided double-layer, double-sided
single-layer and double-sided double-layer.

MPEG-2 compression algorithm very
effective – about 97% of excess
information without compromising quality.
pictures, so that the DVD can be
accommodate up to 4 hours of high-quality
video plus 8 sound options,
plus 32 subtitle options in different languages. DVD
There are many other interesting possibilities, such as
as an option to set age limits
to view, interactivity, quick transition to
the right place, viewing from different points.

DVD audio is recorded in
Dolby Digital 5.1 format. These are six independent
digital channels: center, left and right
front, left and right surround and subwoofer.
Movies in
modern cinemas.

What you need to watch
DVDs on a computer?

First, you need a DVD-ROM –
DVD drive. DVD-ROM is very similar
on CD-ROM, only reads discs faster. Any DVD-ROM
reads regular CDs without problems, so if
If your computer has a DVD-ROM, you don’t need a CD-ROM.
The five speed DVD-ROM reads CDs as 32x CD-ROMs.

Second. Data in MPEG-2 format,
read from the DVD, you need to decode,
those. restore redundant information
removed during the compression stage.. This can be done
or programmatically without using
specialized hardware, or
using a DVD decoder. Process
decoding is very resource intensive, so
the first method presents more stringent
computer performance requirements.

If decoding is in progress
programmatically, video can be output
directly on the monitor screen or, if on
The video card has a TV-out, to the TV screen.
Sound accompaniment is provided by sound
map. Typically 6 channel audio
film accompaniment is mixed in two
stereo channel.

If your computer has
DVD decoder, then the output can be carried out as
monitor and TV. In this case
TV is connected directly to
TV output of the decoder. Stereo sound can be captured
directly from the decoder’s LineOut jack, or
pass it through the sound card (output
decoder – sound card input). Further –
computer speakers or TV speakers.

Soundtrack for
software decoding

Several schemes are possible here.

The simplest – mixing
soundtrack to normal stereo and
output to a pair of speakers connected to an audio
map.

Another option. In some
software decoders support
quad-sound output to two pairs of speakers, but this
requires, apparently, sound cards completely
a certain type. The only decoder
which it works and works great, is
SoftDVD by Zoran, which is included in the Retail kit
shipments of Diamond Monster Sound MX300 sound card
(works, of course, only on this map).
Four independent channels create when viewing
film the illusion of “sound around”. Coming Soon Diamond
promises to release a daughter board for the MX300, which
will make it possible to output sound to 6 independent
channels, i. e. full Dolby Digital 5.1.

Another option (so far, it seems
theoretical) – output of undecoded
audio signal to the SPDIF digital connector of the audio card,
for example, SB Live! As far as I know, in
SB Live! this has not yet been implemented.

What factors does the
DVD software decoding quality?

An ideal decoder should
output 25 fps for PAL and 30 fps for
NTSC (this is “by science”, but I have a hunch
that FPS is used when playing a DVD movie
24 fps). If performance
the computer is not enough, some frames drop out
and the image starts to twitch.

Decoding quality,
Firstly, it depends on the frequency of the processor. For
obtaining more or less acceptable results
the processor must be at least as good as a Pentium II with a frequency
266MHz. Unfortunately I was unable to get
objective quantitative dependence, but
I think that it is possible to consider dependence approximately
decoding speed on processor frequency
directly proportional.

The second important factor is
video card. She must support
hardware level Overlay mode. It means
the ability to display an image in a window with
color depth different from the color depth on
the rest of the screen area. Those. you can ask
video mode with 8-bit color depth, and the video will be
displayed in the window with its “natural”
24 bit color depth. But that is not all. Videos in
MPEG-2 format is encoded in color difference
YUV format, which must be displayed before being displayed on the screen.
convert to RGB. Supported graphics cards
Overlay, as a rule, are able to do it in hardware.

80% of modern graphics cards
meet these requirements. However, there are those in
where these opportunities are not available. On such
video cards to programmatically decode DVDs with
any acceptable quality is impossible. Here
their list: Matrox Millenium, Matrox Mystique, Matrox
Millennium II, Diamond FireGL.

On the other hand,
some (few) video cards have
additional hardware (hardware assist),
accelerating the process of software decoding.
These are video cards based on ATI Rage Pro, ATI Rage 128 and S3 Savage 3D.
This mechanism is called Hardware Motion Compensation.

Third, for
normal DVD-ROM decoding should work
via DMA, so as not to load the processor with a transfer
data – the processor will have enough work without that. WITH
this shouldn’t be a problem – Windows 98
supports this mode by default.

Finally, quality
decoding depends on “ability”
decoder program that is being used.

Is there an objective
criterion for evaluating the quality of software
DVD decoding?

Don’t know. None of the decoders
which I looked at does not contain funds for
counting the FPS value (Frames per second – the number of frames in
give me a sec). The exception is Xing (but it
the counter could not be made to work) and the decoder
by Ligoos, but it can only play
MPEG-2 files, not DVD movies from a disc.

Does it exist today
MPEG-2 software decoder that plays
lossless video, and if so, which one
does it need a processor?

I don’t think so. been tested
several decoding programs with
using a Pentium-III processor with a frequency of 500MHz.
Even the use of a video card with hardware
ATI Rage 128 decoding accelerator and decoder,
who knows how to take advantage of this
video card, did not provide playback without
drops in frames on “heavy” areas.

The fact is that MPEG-2 allows
compressed video stream speed from 500Kb to 1.3Mb
second, so the quality of decoding can
be different. If the scene in the frame changes quickly
(panoramic shots with camera movement), then the volume
the flow increases, the work of the decoder program
is added and, if the power of the computer is not
enough, the image on the screen will twitch.

As test me
used the same episode. At the most
“heavy” image jump fragments
were noticeable, i.e. there was a drop in frames.

Cinemaster 98

Consists of three components:
engine that is responsible for the process
decoding, a player used to control
process, and control panels for customization.
It is considered to be the fastest decoder. Eat
support for ATI Hardware Motion Compensation. Possibilities
controls are modest.

ATI DVD Player

Uses the same engine. More
nice, in my opinion, interface. Maybe
play both discs and files. Eat
opinion that provides the best quality
sound accompaniment when outputting to 2
stereo channel. Supports Hardware Motion mechanism
Compensation of the ATI Rage 128 video card. Judging by the conferences in
Internet, this player is the fastest and most
popular.

Soft DVD Player

This is one of the very first
decoders on the market. It has a strong connection to
hardware and runs on a limited
number of video cards (for example, ATI). Zoran is now
released a new version that comes with
Diamond Monster Sound MX300 sound card.

Power DVD

I liked the best.
The user interface is excellent. All
control options that are possible
imagine, implemented, and even several
ways. There is a rewind with different speeds,
frame-by-frame playback, picture capture and
a lot more. The interface is the best
far superior to all others. Counts,
which is inferior in decoding speed to Cinemaster,
although I didn’t notice much of a difference. Can
take advantage of 3DNow! AMD K6 and
SIMD Pentium III. Support for S3 Savage 3D (but not ATI) Hardware Motion
Compensation.

the slowest.

Windows 98 DVD Player

Included with Windows 98, but
it’s hard to get it out of there. For work
You need an engine like Cinemaster.

Hardware benefits
decoding

To be specific, I will
keep in mind the Hollywood+ decoder, which is sold in
to our firm.

To begin with, compared to
software decoders hardware decoders
better perform the decoding process itself. We have
cpu computer working in office
Celeron-333 with such a decoder, connected to a TV with
25″ diagonal. No defects in
DVD playback is not observed.
The quality is naturally much higher than
regular TV programs.

An important plus is the possibility
connection to a TV decoder. First, on
watching a movie on a big screen
much more convenient, and secondly, when outputting to TV,
color conversion from YUV to RGB is required, i.e. signal
goes straight. On the contrary, with software
decoding output to TV can be realized
only through the TV-out of the video card, while the signal
first converted to RGB (because the decoder
“doesn’t know” that the end goal is TV), but
then back to YUV (this is already done by the video card), with
this results in a noticeable loss of quality and,
Naturally, this does not speed up the work.

The Hollywood+ decoder has a digital
SPDIF connector from which you can remove
audio signal in Dolby Digital format. By connecting to it
special receiver with appropriate
speaker system, you can get
six-channel sound and turn your computer into
home DVD theater. As far as I know, on
today is the only solution for
enjoying full sound in Dolby Digital 5.1 format
on the computer.

Recommendation

If finances allow,
buying a computer with a DVD-ROM seems to me
reasonable. Even if the question of reproduction
There are no DVD-video discs yet, the presence of a DVD-ROM
will allow you to use games and more
software recorded on DVD.
Considering that such software will appear all
more, having a DVD-ROM will ensure your computer
a good start for the future. Problems with reading
there will be no regular CDs.

Try what is DVD on
computer, you can use any available
software player. A very good option –
purchase of the Diamond Monster Sound MX300 sound card,
which is worth the money even without SoftDVD. Little of,
that you will get an excellent
software DVD decoder, but you can also
enjoy 4 channel audio
accompaniment very close to the Dolby original
Digital 5.1

If you are serious about
watch dvd movies on computer
purchase Hollywood+ and connect a TV to it.
