DownMix User Manual 5 Introduction
The DaySequerra DownMix enables 5.1 surround sound to be transported through any stereo
infrastructure using the DTS Neural Audio process. Because DownMix renders sound independently of
the transport environment, it will compliment analog, digital, linear or compressed mediums. The
process is based upon the principle that both natural stereo and 5.1 content are two dimensional; both
contain width and depth spatial attributes. DownMix can represent six channels of discreet audio
sources into a stereo down mix by transforming the sources to pure intensity and coherence encoding.
By correcting overlaps of the signal sources in intensity, time, coherence, polarity, and phase before the
six channels are combined, DownMix accounts for the problems suffered in traditional matrix encode
systems (comb filtering, spatial location distortion, etc).
This proprietary DTS Neural Audio process, or “watermark process” guarantees that surround
information is faithfully reproduced when later rendered by the DaySequerra UpMix or any Lt/Rt
system. In brief, DownMix produces a stereo mix that accurately represents the original content
whether monitored in mono, stereo, matrix or DTS Neural 5.1 Surround Sound.
Operational Diagram The diagram below shows a DownMix taking a multi-channel audio source and creating two-channel
audio using the proprietary DTS Neural Audio process of embedding a watermark signal within the
stereo audio signal patch containing spatial and steering positioning information. The resulting stereo
audio signal is also known as Lt/Rt.
This approach to down mixing the audio into a two channel signal ensures that it can be transmitted
through any stereo-capable distribution system. Since the audio output is watermarked, it may be re-up
mixed again into the original format.
6 DownMix User Manual Typical Applications Here are some examples that describe some typical applications where you might use DownMix.
FM Radio Production Studio A typical application of DownMix is to create a watermarked stereo signal from multi-channel original
content originating from a computer with a multi-channel sound card, Stereo Automation or Storage
System, or direct from your Digital Production Console.
The audio can be transmitted through and stored on your standard two channel equipment, and will be
capable of conversion back to the original multi-channel content. Backwards compatibility is built in—
your listeners with stereo equipment will receive stereo audio, while those using decoders with DTS
Neural Technology will have the best sound experience.
Stereo Television Master Control Another application of DownMix is in a stereo television master control room setup. DownMix allows
encoding of original multi-channel content into a watermarked stereo audio signal that can be easily
transported throughout a complete infrastructure and later rendered to the original multi-channel
content if needed.
Streaming Media DownMix can be used to create a watermarked stereo signal for distribution over the internet in either a
streaming or video-on-demand format. Simply use DownMix before the media gets encoded for digital
transmission. The DTS Neural process will make sure that the best surround experience will be
reproduced at the lowest bandwidth cost.
DownMix User Manual 7 Installation

impossible for us to contact you to notify you when important software upgrades become available.
Please take a few minutes to complete the warranty registration form on our website,
www.daysequerra.com.
Rack Mount Installation The DownMix chassis has four rack mounting holes and has been designed to fit in a standards 1RU
space. Plastic ‘finishing’ washers are recommended to protect the painted surface around the mounting
holes. Locate the air vents on each side of the unit, and be sure to keep them clear so the unit may
have adequate ventilation.
Power Connection The AC power cable supplied with DownMix must be connected from the IEC320 power entry module
to an AC mains outlet with a functional earth ground connection. For protection against electric shock
and electro-magnetic interference, do not plug the power cable into a ground lifting adapter or remove
the cable’s grounding pin. If in doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.
DownMix is designed with redundancy in mind with two internal auto switching power supplies. Please
connect DownMix to an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect against power surges and
low-voltage conditions. For maximum redundancy, connect each power supply to a separate UPS on
different power circuits. DownMix may be combined with other devices on the output of the UPS(es) as
long as the total load is within the UPS’ capacity. Consult your UPS manual for details.
DownMix will automatically power up when AC power is applied. If AC line power is lost or
momentarily interrupted, DownMix will revert to its previous state.
