SurCode for Dolby Digital Stereo Encoder: Windows

The audio track of a DVD-Video consumes a large amount of disk space. For example, two hours of stereo audio, at 48 kHz 16 bit, uses nearly 1.4 GB of a DVD’s 4.3GB total available space. Dolby Digital encoding is an excellent option for audio on a DVD-Video disc because it reduces the size of the source files typically by a ratio of 8:1, yet still achieves excellent sound quality. SurCode for Dolby Digital can free up considerable space on the disc to allow for either more video and a longer running time or, higher bit rate video for better image quality.
