Professional Services engineers can isolate the dialogue from a composite mix in situations where the individual tracks or elements are no longer available. This opens up possibilities such as creating a true surround upmix, virtual reality mixes, video games, additional foreign language mixes or any number of creative applications.
Blues Brothers DVD
For the European release of The Blues Brothers, Universal Home Entertainment required re-mastered surround sound for their final dialogue versions. Unfortunately only stereo foreign composites were available, making the 5.1 remastered releases impossible.
Using Dialogue Isolation services, Audionamix provided clean French, Italian, German, and Spanish dialogue tracks to be reintegrated in the fully remastered 5.1 music and effect tracks. This enabled 5.1 releases in European territories, giving Universal International an additional marketing element to promote the title.
