Empreintes DIGITALes Goes Hi-Fi With DVD-Audio

United States
English
Montreal, February 20, 2007 — The Québec electroacoustic music record label empreintes DIGITALes has chosen to release its productions in DVD-Audio format, which puts it at the forefront of a market in constant renewal. empreintes DIGITALes had already shown its innovative streak at its inception in 1990 by becoming the first exclusively digital record label. In 2005, the label upped the ante and selected the DVD-Audio format as its media of choice. Seven albums have been released in that format since, and more are on the way.

DVD-Audio’s are perfect for electroacoustic music, thanks to their extended spectrum and dynamics. Their large storage capacity also makes it possible to include on a single disc several versions of the same works, such as 5.1 Surround recordings and stereo recordings (suitable for all sound systems). For the audiophile, works recorded on DVD-Audio in 5.1 Surround in 24-bit definition ensures a home listening experience as rich and stimulating as what can be experienced in the concert hall.

But that’s not all! To make sure that empreintes DIGITALes DVD’s can be played on all DVD players around the world, the works are also encoded in DVD-Video format (Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.).

AND, the same pieces are also included in MP3 and AAC formats encoded at — hold on — 320 kbps! This audio resolution is far better than your usual 128kbps MP3. It makes transferring empreintes DIGITALes releases into your iPod a breeze!

Once again, empreintes DIGITALes does things differently and confirms its commitment toward electroacoustic music and high-quality audiophile listening.

empreintes DIGITALes has a reputation of producing electroacoustic music of the highest standards.
