MLP, Meridian Lossless Packing, is an encoding system designed to losslessly compress high resolution audio for 100% accurate, bit for bit recovery of the encoded data on playback. Unlike “perceptual” or lossy data reduction systems, such as Dolby Digital and DTS, MLP guarantees not to alter the souce file in any way.
Why encode with SurCode MLP?
MLP has two main benefits:
It minimizes the size of the compressed file, allowing a larger amount of audio to be stored on a DVD-A disc.
It will reduce the maximum instantaneous peak data rate. This is needed to pack the 13.82 Mbps data rate of six channels of 24 bit/96 kHz PCM surround audio into the far smaller 9.6 Mbps limitation of the DVD standard.
ReBit is an exclusive feature only found in SurCode's MLP encoder, enables users, in extreme cases, to avoid the necessity of re–mastering their material in order to successfully pass it through the MLP encoding process.
