I was wandering what you thought about SDDS Sound. Is it smart to use it in a theatre, as in, repleacing Dolby with it? I notice Cineplex uses DTS Sound in every auditorium in every theatre here. They've told me they don't use DOLBY.

Pros... Cons...

What's the best and why?

I'd actually like to hear all pro's and cons on different systems. We use Ultra stereo and no one ever complains and when I'm in a DTS or SDDS etc. hopuse they don't seem all that different. For instance: I notice seats a whole lot more. A bad screen or lens or focus is like getting smacked in the head. Is big huge perfect sound worth the $ ????

Do all films come out in SDDS, like Dolby and DTS, or are SOME MOVIES presented in SDDS.

Ah! There's the rub! Enter the current digital projection debate and you see the problem and why exhibitors are leery of this new fangled option. As I understand it: each of these sound companies came up with their own methods of sound for recording, attaching to film, reading off film, amplifying, etc. etc. Then comes the "certifications" etc. Vat a mess! So: yes many pictures are routinely issued in one or the other or all or both or, or, or.

Most of the major releases have "quad track" prints, where analog, Dolby Digital (SR-D), DTS, and SDDS are all printed on the print, to assure that every theatre has access to a digital track, regardless of which system they decided to install. Some releases may opt for only one or two of the digital tracks on their prints.

Although all four tracks are printed from the sound negative at the same time, making "quad track" prints does add to the printing costs, because of the extra quality control costs (and waste if one of the tracks is found to be defective), and the licensing fees the distributor must pay for each digital system used.
