Dolby Pro Logic II was created to deliver a quality surround sound experience using stereo sources, like CD. Pro Logic II lets the content producer start with a 5.1 mix, and encode it to stereo. The encoded mix sounds good in stereo, but for customers listening through a Pro Logic II decoder, the listening experience is upgraded to a quality surround sound experience.
Dolby Pro Logic II does not have the total separation that discrete surround has, such as Dolby Digital. But it does sound great, and is a big improvement over stereo.
In addition to home sound systems, Dolby Pro Logic II is showing up in car sound systems. Aston Martin, Jaguar, Volvo, and Acura are offering models with factory sound systems incorporating Pro Logic II. After market companies offering Pro Logic II include Alpine, Clarion, Pioneer, and others.
There are 89 million Pro Logic II decoders in the field, and nearly a quarter billion (!) compatible Pro Logic and Dolby Surround decoders.
So here’s the bottom line. A large and growing number of customers are already listening to your recordings through a Dolby Pro Logic II decoder right now. You could greatly enhance their listening experience by encoding a 5.1 mix for Pro Logic II.
