Introduction
Welcome to Dolby® file‐based audio!
The Dolby DP600 Program Optimizer is a result of Dolby Laboratories’ continued leadership in the development of innovative broadcast technologies. The DP600 provides a file‐based work‐flow solution for loudness correction, audio conversion, and upmixing. It is specifically designed for use in cable, satellite, IPTV, terrestrial TV, radio, and postproduction facilities. The DP600 includes the world’s first intelligent audio analysis and automated loudness normalization engine, along with the ability to encode, decode, convert, or transcode between the following Dolby formats: Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby E bitstreams; as well as PCM and MPEG‐1 LII. It also features a newly designed algorithm for upmixing legacy two‐channel audio for 5.1‐channel delivery. To ease the transition into a file‐based workflow, the DP600 also supports many of the most common broadcast media file and audio formats in use today.
For compressed audio formats that include metadata (for example, Dolby E, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Digital Plus), the DP600 can automatically set or correct the dialnorm audio metadata parameter (see Figure 1‐1). For audio formats that do not include metadata, the DP600 can automatically set or correct the dialnorm parameter by referencing a user‐defined target level (see Figure 1‐2). Content producers and broadcasters can reduce loudness complaints by using the DP600 to provide viewers with a consistent audio experience across programs, channels, and networks. Expanding upon the unique Dialogue Intelligence™ technology developed for the Dolby LM100 Broadcast Loudness Meter, the DP600 normalizes the loudness of audio programs while preserving their original dynamic range.1 The DP600 analyzes the loudness of file‐based audio bitstreams coded in Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby E, and validates and corrects the dialnorm parameter without the need for decoding and reencoding the original audio bitstream. The DP600 also provides intelligent speech‐based loudness normalization for both PCM audio and MPEG‐1 LII audio.
The DP600‐C provides faster‐than‐real‐time file‐based encoding, decoding, and conversion between all of Dolby’s audio formats (Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby E), PCM, and MPEG‐1 LII, while preserving the audio metadata. In addition, it offers a unique, high‐quality, single‐step Dolby Digital to Dolby Digital Plus converter that preserves the metadata and minimizes tandem coding losses. This allows the audio from existing media archives to be converted to next‐generation broadcast formats. The DP600 also supports Dolby Pro Logic® II encoding for two‐channel matrix‐encoded content derived from multichannel source files.

In very rare cases involving extreme loudness corrections that require gain, soft limiting will occur only during program peak levels that would exceed clipping after applying this type of loudness correction.

Introduction
Customers interested in enhancing two‐channel audio for use in 5.1‐channel applications can purchase an optional DP600 software upgrade that adds an intelligent file‐based upmixing capability. This unique process is based on a newly developed Dolby algorithm that creates a wider, natural‐sounding sweet spot. It also ensures that subsequent downmixing is free from artifacts typically found with other solutions. The upmixing process can be adaptively integrated into the same DP600 work‐flow profiles utilized for file‐based loudness correction, encoding, decoding, conversion, and transcoding.

You can integrate the DP600 into an existing file‐based network infrastructure as an intelligent processing node. In this environment, the DP600 adapts to your day‐to‐day operations and work flow, which includes:
1.2
•
Program ingest, audio transcoding and conversion, and quality control (QC): Newly ingested content can be routed through the DP600 for loudness analysis and correction, encoding, decoding, and conversion processes before being moved to your media storage library or play‐out server. •
Postproduction: File‐based Dolby E, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Digital Plus bitstreams can be encoded and decoded to and from multichannel .wav or Broadcast .wav Format (BWF) files with metadata (included in the Dolby audio metadata chunk). File‐based media and audio assets can be analyzed, logged, and (if necessary) corrected in faster than real time before delivery to clients. •
Ad insertion: Newly ingested ad content can be passed directly to the DP600 for loudness analysis and correction before it’s placed in your storage archive or ad server. •
Video‐on‐demand (VOD): Customer‐facing VOD servers, as installed at cable and IPTV head‐ends, need to have their content normalized before it is made available to the public. This content can be supplied to the servers either directly, via an ingest department at the broadcaster or affiliate, or via satellite from one or more content aggregators. The DP600 can be installed at the content aggregator, normalizing content before it is sent (ʺpitchedʺ) over the satellite link. Alternatively, it can be installed at the head‐end, taking content that has either been ingested directly or caught from one or more pitchers and normalizing it before it is passed to the customer‐facing server.
Work-Flow Flexibility and Ease of Use
The Dolby DP600 platform supports several types of applications, including archiving, automated QC, content conversion, and media asset management; it offers considerable potential for integration with third‐party systems through an open application programming interface (API).
To meet specific user requirements, you can control the DP600 and its processing engines in three ways:
•
Manual control: Users can set up and initiate work orders on an individual or batch basis from a simple‐to‐use interface. •
Third‐party control via Web services: To enable system integration at any level, the DP600’s processing engines are also available as a set of Web services. This allows manufacturers to integrate these engines directly into their work flow to create a seamless user experience without impacting day‐to‐day operations. •
Automatic hot folder ingest process: Users can create hot folders and predefine a work order profile for each one. The profile governs the DP600’s behavior with specific broadcast media types. All media files moved to a hot folder are automatically processed based on the folder’s profile and delivered to a user‐defined folder upon completion. Hot folders are easy to set up and use and can greatly speed integration time within some facilities.

The DP600 has five physical internal hard drives. Drives 1 and 2 are arranged in a RAID 1 configuration to provide protection for the operating system as well as local storage. The remaining three hard drives are configured as separate drives to provide local storage. This configuration of one RAID pair and three separate drives represents four logical drives. There are four bicolor LEDs on the front panel, labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4. These LEDs indicate the status of the DP600’s four logical internal hard drives. The drive LEDs function as follows:
• Off (nonilluminated): Indicates a functional drive with no current disk access activity
•
Green: Indicates normal drive activity
•
Red: Indicates a drive failure
LED 1 shows the status of the two‐drive RAID 1 configuration. The operating system is installed on these mirrored drives to prevent a physical drive failure, resulting in an inoperable system. If either of the mirrored drives fails, the other RAID drive enables the system to operate normally until the failed drive is replaced.
Dolby® DP600 Program Optimizer Manual

Introduction
LEDs 2, 3, and 4 indicate the status of the other three physical disks. These disks are configured as separate drives and do not have RAID backup capability. If any of these drives fail, the failed drives must be replaced, and any work orders in progress during the failure must be restarted. If one of the drive LEDs turns red, refer to Table 1‐1 to determine which physical drive failed. Typically, the DP600 automatically rebuilds the RAID array when one of the RAID drives has a problem or is replaced (with the power on). During the RAID rebuild process, LED 1 blinks in red in half‐second intervals. When the rebuild process is complete, LED 1 stops blinking. In some instances (for example, if you replace a non‐RAID drive), you must initiate the rebuild process manually, as described in Section 3.1.2.
If you replace both RAID drives, you also need to reinstall the DP600 software. In such a case, follow the instructions for a clean installation in Section 3.3. When you reinstall the software, the system automatically synchronizes the two RAID drives, re‐creating the original mirrored RAID array (manual rebuild not required).
For instructions on replacing a drive, see Section 3.1.1.

Using the DP600 Remote Client Software
To process audio using the DP600, you need to use the Dolby DP600 Remote Client software (also referred to as “DP600 Client“ or “Client”). With this application, you can define and run an operation we call a work order. The DP600 Client runs on your Microsoft® Windows® PC. This application looks similar to the front‐panel touch screen, but provides more user control functions. For example, with the Client, you can:

Understanding Work Orders
Currently, there are ten types of work orders:
•
•
•
•
Standard
Pinnacle™ Standard
Omneon™ Standard (for use with Omneon servers only)
Multi‐File Standard
•
Mono‐only Standard
•
•
Hot Folder

Omneon Hot Folder (for use with Omneon servers only)
Grass Valley™ Hot Folder
Mono‐only Hot Folder Standard, Pinnacle Standard, and Omneon Standard Work Orders
These types of work orders process audio on a file‐by‐file basis. You specify the path to the source file on your PC or anywhere on the network. You also specify a destination where you want to save the processed file. Pinnacle work orders are designed specifically for Pinnacle Systems® MediaStream server files. Omneon work orders are designed specifically for Omneon server files and are incompatible with other formats.
Multi-File Standard
This type of work order processes multiple files as if they were a single file. The system measures each file for loudness and uses the overall results to apply the same value to each file. You specify the path to the source files on your PC or anywhere on the network. You also specify a destination where you want to save the processed files.
Mono-Only Standard
This type of work order processes audio in mono on a file‐by‐file basis. Each file represents a single channel of a multichannel program. You specify the path to the source files on your PC or anywhere on the network. You also specify a destination where you want to save the processed file.
Hot Folder Work Order
With this type of work order, you specify the path to a source folder on your PC or network where the audio files you want to process are located. The DP600 periodically looks for files of a specific type in this folder, which is controlled by the work order profile. The work order profile associated with your hot folder also determines how the DP600 processes the files. In addition, you specify the destination where you want to save the processed files. When the DP600 sees the specified file type in the source directory, it processes those files according to the current profile, and then saves the processed files in the destination folder. Note:
You can link only one work order profile with a single hot folder. However, you can create multiple hot folders, each with a different profile.
Pinnacle Hot Folder Work Order
This type of hot folder is designed specifically for Pinnacle MediaStream server files.

Running the DP600 Client
To run the Client:
1.
Open your browser and go to http://<dp600 server>/, where <dp600 server> is the host name or IP address of the DP600 (for example, http://zico.eng/ or http://10.201.1.88/). After you open the Client for the first time, a shortcut appears on your desktop and in the Start > All Programs > Dolby Laboratories menu.
Currently we support Windows XP, using Internet Explorer® 6 or later, Firefox® 2 or later, Opera 9 or later, and Safari® 3 or later. Other browsers and operating systems are untested or unsupported.
The DP600 Program Optimizer splash screen appears, as shown in Figure 2‐29.

Click launch client in the splash screen.
Sun Microsystems Java™ Web Start launches, the Client automatically connects to the DP600, and the DP600 Client home screen appears, as shown in Figure 2‐30. Subsequently, you can start the Client with either the shortcut described above, or by revisiting the DP600 Web page and following the links again.
If the Client PC does not have the correct version of the Java runtime environment™ (JRE) installed and the Client PC has access to the Internet, the correct version of Java installs automatically. If this fails, then you need to install the JRE manually by clicking the icon on the splash screen or going to www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp?locale=en&host=www.java.com. You can download a copy of the DP600 manual (this manual) by clicking the icon.
If the current version of Client software is not already installed on the Client PC, the correct version automatically downloads directly from the DP600 (no Internet access required).
You can install and run the Client from multiple computers simultaneously. Client updates automatically occur each time the Client runs on a specific PC. For this reason, the Client isnʹt really installed as such. You simply run the application from the DP600, which automatically downloads any necessary files and updates as required.
2.3.3
DP600 Client Home Screen
After launching the DP600 Client, as described in Section 2.3.2, the DP600 Client home screen appears on your PC. This screen looks similar to the home screen on the front‐panel touch screen and you can perform many of the same functions using the Client. You can also perform some additional functions. The Client functions are described on the following pages. When a procedure says “click” something, this means that you can perform the respective function only with the Client. If it says “press or click,” this means you can perform the respective function using the touch screen or the Client. However, to access any of their respective locked areas, you must log in separately on the touch screen and the Client.

Using the DP600
Following is a description of the other Additional Settings:
•
Stable Period
Allows you to fine‐tune the hot folder/work order activation process for your specific network environment. This applies to configurations where the system copies files from one server into a hot folder the DP600 is monitoring on another server. This is typical in work‐flow environments that process an extremely large number of files. In this type of work flow, some remote file systems cannot confirm to any degree of accuracy when a file is completely copied from its source into a hot folder. By utilizing the Stable Period parameter, the DP600 periodically checks the size of all new files in the hot folder, and waits until the file size stabilizes (does not increase in size). If the file size remains the same for the number of seconds you enter in the Stable Period field, then the DP600 activates the work order process on the respective files. The default is 20 seconds. This is a safeguard to ensure the system doesn’t begin processing files before they’re completely copied into the designated hot folder.
•
Scan Interval
Specifies how often the DP600 scans a hot folder for new files to process. The default is 5 seconds.
•
Retry Count
Specifies how many times the system tries to process a hot folder work order before the work order fails. The default is 3.
•
Retry Delay
Specifies how many seconds the system waits before retrying to process a hot folder work order. The default is 5 seconds.
•
Include File Extensions
Specifies whether to add files to the hot folder that include All extensions (the default) or only those files that contain the extensions you enter in this field.
•
Enable Quarantine
Enables the quarantine options. Click this box to display the Max. Loudness
Correction Range (dB)+/- field, where you can enter a value that specifies the acceptable correction range. If the amount of loudness correction would exceed this range, select from the following two options: Correct file and copy to workorder destination copies the corrected file to the work order destination directory. Corrected files appear as Quarantine Finished in the status area in work order report and log screens.
Do not correct file and copy to quarantine folder displays the Quarantine Destination field. If you click in this field, the Enter Path screen appears where you can enter a directory where the system copies an uncorrected file. This screen is identical to the Enter Path screen described earlier for the source path. Uncorrected files appear as Quarantine Failed in the status area in work order report and log screens.
Note:
•
If you enable Delete Source File in the Add Workorder screen (see Figure 2‐34 and Figure 2‐35), the Additional Settings destination options allow you to move (instead of copy) the corrected or uncorrected files to the specified work order directory or the quarantine directory.

Chapter 3
System Maintenance
This chapter explains how to maintain the Dolby® DP600. The sections that follow show you how to diagnose and repair hard drives and power supplies.
3.1
Maintaining the DP600 Hard Drives
The DP600 has five physical internal hard drives. Drives 1 and 2 are arranged in a RAID 1 configuration to provide protection for the operating system as well as local storage. The remaining three hard drives are configured as separate drives to provide local storage. This configuration of one RAID pair and three separate drives represents four logical drives. There are four bicolor LEDs on the front panel, labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4. These LEDs indicate the status of the DP600’s four logical internal hard drives. The drive LEDs function as follows:
•
Off (nonilluminated): Indicates a functional drive with no current disk access activity
•
Green: Indicates normal drive activity
•
Red: Indicates a drive failure
LED 1 shows the status of the two‐drive RAID 1 configuration. The operating system is installed on these mirrored drives to prevent a physical drive failure, resulting in an inoperable system. If either of the mirrored drives fails, the other RAID drive enables the system to operate normally until the failed drive is replaced.
LEDs 2, 3, and 4 indicate the status of the other three physical disks. These disks are configured as separate drives and do not have RAID backup capability. If any of these drives fail, the failed drives must be replaced, and any work orders in progress during the failure must be restarted.
If one of the drive LEDs turns red, refer to Table 3‐1 to determine which physical drive failed. Typically, the DP600 automatically rebuilds the RAID array when one of the RAID drives has a problem or is replaced (with the power on). During the RAID rebuild process, LED 1 blinks in red in half‐second intervals. When the rebuild process is complete, LED 1 stops blinking. In some instances (for example, if you replace a non‐RAID drive), you must initiate the rebuild process manually, as described in Section 3.1.2. If you replace both RAID drives, you also need to reinstall the DP600 software. In such a case, follow the instructions for a clean installation in Section 3.3. When you reinstall the software, the system automatically synchronizes the two RAID drives, re‐creating the original mirrored RAID array (manual rebuild not required).
To replace a drive, follow the instructions in Section 3.1.1.

Starting from the left side of the drive cage, the first slot contains physical drive 1 (RAID drive 1). The second slot contains physical drive 2 (RAID drive 2). Starting with the third slot, physical drives 3, 4, and 5 are installed next, in that order. In this example, RAID drive 1 is the failed drive that requires replacement. Figure 3‐6 shows how the drives are numbered from left to right (numbers do not appear on the actual unit).

Reinstall the drive cover by positioning it so that the mounting tang on the right side of the RAID bay inserts in the mounting slot on the rear of the drive cover. To do this, hold the drive cover so that there is an approximately 10‐degree angle between the cover and the front of the unit, as shown in Figure 3‐10.
Figure 3-10 Reinstall Front-Panel Drive Cover
10. Slide the drive cover over the mounting tang and move it to the left until the mounting stud on the left rear side of the cover engages the hole in the front of the unit. If you replaced one RAID drive and did not shut down the system, the RAID array rebuilds automatically. However, if you are not running multiple work orders, we recommend shutting down the system, rebooting, and manually rebuilding the RAID array, as described in Section 3.1.2.
If you replaced a non‐RAID drive, rebooting and manual rebuilding is required, as described in Section 3.1.2.
If you replaced both RAID drives (drives 1 and 2), you need to use the DP600 software DVD to reinstall the software, as described in Section 3.3. In such a case, you perform a clean installation and the system automatically synchronizes the two RAID drives, re‐creating the original mirrored RAID array (manual rebuilding not required).
3.1.2
Rebuilding DP600 Drives
To manually rebuild DP600 hard drives:
1.
Place the DP600 in an idle state by halting all work orders being processed.
2.

Entering a Path for a Mono-Only Hot folder Work Order
The system processes audio in mono on a file‐by‐file basis. Each file represents a single channel of a multichannel program. For a simple configuration, you also need to enter a channel configuration, and a timeout value that the system uses to cancel the work order if it cannot locate the required files in the specified time frame (displayed as failed in the work order database). If a work order fails, the hot folder itself remains active.
Figure A‐15
Figure A-15 Enter Path Screen for Mono-Only Hot Folder Work Order
The system groups the required number of files together for processing, based on a file pattern with a common base name and syntax. The Basename field in the Enter Path screen is not a data‐entry field, but is displayed only to show how the system associates the required files. The fields following Basename are data‐entry fields where you set up the syntax pattern for all the files with a common base name. The system can then process the files with the same syntax pattern and the same base name for the specified channel configuration. Be sure you store only the required number of files in the hot folder that use the same base name. If not, the system may output a multichannel program using the wrong files. Figure A‐16 shows the File Pattern data‐entry fields, and Figure A‐17 shows an example configuration.

Detailed Profile Descriptions
B.1
Understanding DP600 Profiles
A DP600 profile defines a set of actions and processes on a specific type of source file, which includes specific actions on any or all audio data types and the configurations contained within them (if applicable).
Following are some important points to remember regarding DP600 profiles:
Note:
DP600 profile information is updated periodically. For the latest information on DP600 profiles, please go to the DP600 area on www.dolbysupport.com. 1.
The DP600 profiles and processes always expect and are capable of providing multichannel .wav files that are restricted to the following channel order within the file: Left, Right, Center, LFE, Left Surround, Right Surround per SMPTE 320M Table 2. (Failure to adhere to this rule results in unintended behavior.)
2.
All DP600 profiles and processes that expect and/or provide multichannel or multiprogram audio must be contained in a single file (that is, all channels are interleaved). For this reason, the DP600 does not support discrete (single‐channel monophonic) input files that (together) comprise a complete multichannel audio program. However, the DP600 does support single‐channel monophonic .wav or .aiff files that do represent a complete audio program. 3.
For any DP600 profiles that expect a PCM .wav source file, the Dolby® metadata chunk1 is optional. In cases where the metadata chunk is not present, the DP600 processes utilize a default set of metadata parameters, except where noted in the profile descriptions provided on the following pages in this appendix. For this reason, the Dolby metadata chunk is required to obtain full control over any or all Dolby metadata parameters (on a file‐by‐file basis).
4.
All decoder‐related profiles that output PCM .wav files default to 16‐bit sample depths (unless noted otherwise), except for Dolby E decoding, which defaults to 24‐bit sample depths.
5.
Unless otherwise noted, many files processed by the DP600 (that is, the output files) contain the text string -corrected, which is appended to the input file name. For example, a source file name such as DP600_test.mpg results in a processed file named DP600_test-corrected.mpg in your destination directory. 1
The Dolby metadata chunk specification is available upon request.
Dolby® DP600 Program Optimizer Manual
75
DP600 Program Optimizer Detailed Profile Descriptions
6.
Profiles that are capable of processing source files into multiple output files (for example, a 5.1+2–channel Dolby E decode) name each program as follows:
Program 1: source_filename-sequence[1]-program[1]-corrected.wav
Program 2: source_filename-sequence[1]-program[2]-corrected.wav
Note:
The -corrected suffix appears if a loudness correction step was performed.
7.
All profiles referencing MPEG‐2 transport streams assume that only a single program is present.
8.
For .wav files larger than 4 GB, the DP600 supports only the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) RF64 BWF‐compatible multichannel file format. (An RF64 format file may also be termed as a Multichannel Broadcast WAV Format, or MBWF, file).
9.
All 20‐bit Dolby E data must be formatted per SMPTE 337M and wrapped in a 24‐bit .wav file container before transferring it to the DP600 for processing (this excludes any Dolby E data contained within an MPEG transport stream, MPEG program stream, or GXF file).
10. All 16‐bit Dolby E data must be formatted per SMPTE 337M and wrapped in a 16‐bit .wav file container before transferring it to the DP600 for processing (this excludes any Dolby E data contained within an MPEG transport stream, MPEG program stream, or GXF file).
Note:
Note:
16‐bit Dolby E data is supported only when used with specific profiles. For more information, see the profile descriptions in Table B‐1.
The .aiff file format does not support audio data (file) lengths greater than 4294967296 bytes (that is., 4.29 GB).
Table B‐1 lists all DP600 default profiles.

Appendix C
System Administrator Functions
This chapter is for DP600 system administrators only. Before users can operate the system, a system administrator must set up user IDs and passwords, which specify the respective access level for each user.
C.1
Access Levels
There are three DP600 access levels: •
VIEWER (default): no password required
•
USER: password required
•
ADMIN: password required
Note:
C.1.1
You can change the VIEWER access level to USER or ADMIN, as described in Changing the Default Access Level on page 83.
Admin Level
The ADMIN level is intended only for system administrators. With this level of access, a system administrator can perform all DP600 functions. C.1.2
User Level
The USER level is intended for DP600 operators. Users can view information and system status, and set up work orders and generate reports, but cannot cancel or edit work orders or use the config, upgrade, maintenance, and power functions.
C.1.3
Viewer Level
At the VIEWER level, a user can view information and system status, but cannot operate the system. This is the default level of access and does not require a password.

C.2
Setting Up an Admin Level Password
Before setting up USER IDs, you need to add a new ADMIN ID that you will use to log in to the system. You can perform this function using the DP600 touch screen user interface or the DP600 Client. You or any other user can log in to the touch screen and the Client with the same USER ID, but all users must log in to each of these interfaces separately to access their respective functions.
To set up your ADMIN ID:
