Stagetec Asia demystifies Dolby in Malaysia


Dolby Technology and Stagetec Asia recently partnered to present a Demystifying Advanced Digital Audio: Dolby Technology Application seminar at the Stagetec Media Academy in Puchong, Selangor. Spanning three days, the training focused on understanding TV workflows and its integration of Dolby Technology with the digital TV environments. It was the third year that the two companies had partnered to provide education for the local market.

The session began with a short opening speech from Stagetec Media Academy director, Advon Tan, before the trainer for the day, Stagetec international sales consultant Jean Paul-Moerman, took over the reigns.

The class comprises of a small group of students with an interesting mixture of TV, live and post production backgrounds. During the sessions participants were educated in typical 5.1 microphone techniques, balancing and system setup, while Dolby codec technology and the importance of correct metadata were explained in detail. The whole production chain from live events to transmission, and finally the set top box in consumers’ home were discussed with a focus on correct handling and optimal processing. 

Arguably one of the most important topics under discussion was that of loudness and down-/ and up-mixing with respect to the the proper alignment procedures. ‘The last issue we addressed is always important to explain – that the LFE channel is not the subwoofer channel,’ commented Jean Paul-Moerman. ‘Even professional often make this mistake’

Overall, the training was considered a success, with sound designer and attendee Andrew Liew noting that it was ‘a brilliant course for industry professionals, presented by an international broadcast veteran. Shedding light on theory and techniques that will definitely be put to good use in the Malaysian broadcast industry.’
