Blu-ray Dolby Digital vs HS. DDplus...
I bumped into a colleague who worked QC for some of the bigger studios on HD and BD titles and he had an interesting bit of info to offer. He said that while on titles where there’s a dolby digital plus track on the HD release and only a dolby digital track on the BR, many times, depending on the studio, it’s dolby digital presented at a higher bit rate that is equivalent to DDplus, it just doesn’t have the ‘plus’ branding.
Is this true and does anyone know what bit rates Warners and Paramount encode DD plus for HD DVD and DD for BD?
