post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Vudu began including 7.1 Dolby surround (7.1DD+), nice!

Will all the streaming devices be supported?



Cheers!

How much data do you think this will use streaming 1080 p 7.1 ????

According to Vudu, HDX (1080p24/5.1DD+) content streams roughly between 4.5 Mbps to 9 Mbps.


Taking the max bitrate 9Mbps = 1.125MB/s, One hour content 3600sec × 1.125MB/s = 4050 MB > about 4GB

No mention (from Vudu) of new bandwidth requirements to stream HDX w/1080p/7.1DD+, maybe 7.1DD+ doesn't add much to 5.1DD+


Note: According to Dolby: Data Rate: 32 kbps-6 Mbps, scalable; typically 768 kbps- 256 kbps for broadcast and online

Their bitrates for 5.1 DD+ don't take up much bandwidth(compared to the video). So two extra channels will make very little difference in total bandwidth.

EDIT: Is there a list of the available titles in 7.1?

+1


The first title to be streamed in 7.1DD+ is Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

There maybe more than 30 films have been mixed in 7.1DD+ for theatrical release

I just began using VUDU. Their site doesn't seem to easily display the titles with 7.1 audio. Can anyone help with how to search for these? I wanted to try out my new 7.1 system.

So only twelve titles with 7.1 audio?

Although I guess that is more than the last time I looked.

Thanks Mark. Found the list. Very small and I hope they expand it soon. Otherwise, I can stay with DirecTV PPV.
