. . as in those guys are NOTT happey about THAT 2.0 'fold-down' process (( NOTT to mention ..THAT mixing shows ONLY in 5.1 ...forces the 2.0 'fold-down' ..as most americans listen to these shows in 2.0 ))


..& tweaking the meta-data - - live ...uhmm on-the-fly .......causes more trouble than its worth

..juss what i am hearing . . .

Sorry to drag up an old thread, but where can I get an app that turns English into this?

You can't.

So, let's see, you bring up a 4 month old post and call that poster out for spamming. There hasn't been a post here for 3 months. Who's blacker, the pot or the kettle..... wink.gif

<< Active / Passive (A/P) Audience Measurement

In 2005, the Nielsen Company introduced the Active/Passive Audience Measurement system designed for the purpose of measuring new forms of media distribution, multi-platform content, and particularly DTV and DVR-based time shifted viewing. The A/P measurement system utilizes multiple identification engines to credit television tuning, including advanced audio encoding or watermarking (embedded within the audio spectrum), audio signatures or fingerprints which require a sample compared against a reference, and video watermarking.
Multi-Level Encoding

Nielsen’s patented audio watermarking technology provides the capability to track content distribution from its origin to its final destination. This is accomplished through the insertion of a unique Program Content SID (Source Identification Code) at the broadcast network or national syndicator distribution center and insertion of a Final Distributor SID at a local broadcast station, local cable origination or national cable network distribution center . The SID is a second-by-second serial number used by Nielsen and the television industry to uniquely identify program content to ensure proper crediting of viewing. Both Program Content and Final Distributor codes co-exist, resulting in audio content that is multi-level watermarked. Nielsen’s household meters detect and decode these watermarks to identify viewership.

Additionally, the patented Automated Measurement of Lineups (AMOL) technology is inserted in the VBI portion of the video and employs multi-level tracking capabilities similar to its audio counterpart.
Nielsen's Audio Encoding Technique

The NAVE II embeds a very small amount of audio energy in louder portions of the audio to ensure the non-audibility of the code. This process has been refined over several years using Nielsen and outside testing to ensure audio quality is maintained. The system has been tested through AC-3 and MPEG-2 compression to ensure survival. >>

I seriously doubt that was the issue, especially since I was listening to the non-network feed, i.e., before being encoded in New York.

Boy is that outdated. VBI doesn't exist with digital video and there are no more SD network feeds.

Hmm - there was an issue with 5.1 audio strangeness in the UK a while back. It was caused by a Dolby Digital Encoder in the playout area getting confused by Metadata embedded in the Dolby E signal feeding it apparently. (Horrifically a 5.1 signal got flagged as a 1.0 centre channel only signal...)

I wonder if there is some VANC metadata that got corrupted in an HD-SDI signal somewhere? (And this got translated as "VBI" - as VANC has kind of replaced VBI?)
