SAN JOSE, Calif., September 05, 2007
Interra Systems, Inc. today announced that it has signed a license agreement with Dolby Laboratories for supporting Dolby® Digital Plus and Dolby® TrueHD audio technologies in its widely acclaimed Vega family of offline audio/ video analyzers.

Interra's Vega family of Analyzers help media professionals analyze and troubleshoot encoded video and audio problems in their products. Vega Analyzers support a wide range of audio and video technologies like H.264, VC1, MPEG2 Transport, MPEG4, MPEG2 Video, MP4, Dolby Digital (AC3) and the AAC Audio standards.

"We first supported Dolby Digital, and now it makes sense for us to commit to Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby TrueHD technologies in our Vega family of offline Analyzers. These leading edge technologies have the potential to open up new business opportunities for Interra and our customers," said Ashish Basu, Vice President, from Interra Systems.
