The Datasat Platform

The Datasat Platform There doesn't need to be one set of sound solutions for audiophiles and another for professional cinema. A single proven technology platform can deliver outstanding results for both.


There is one very unique difference between a home cinema audio processor from Datasat Digital Entertainment and one from most other suppliers. Ours is built on exactly the same technology platform that cinemas the world over use to get the most from digital sound.

In the early 1990s, we pioneered digital sound for cinema. Since then we have been constantly innovating and improving our solutions to meet the most exacting standards. It is this innovating knowledge and experience that is built into the Datasat platform.

Of course the needs of professional cinemas and home use are different in some respects but the goal of delivering the most engaging, true-to-source listening experience is the same for both. That’s what the Datasat platform delivers.

Key Features

The four pillars of the Datasat platform are:


Few organizations have as much experience as we do with conventional analog sound systems and state-of-the-art digital signal processing technologies. Our ability to work with the widest range of analog and digital inputs and outputs is extremely mature and field tested in challenging conditions. Features such as expansion slots allow our audio processors to anticipate the growing importance of channel-hungry audio trends such as 3D sound.


The Datasat platform has been designed to provide a range of audio processing features that will satisfy even the most demanding sound engineer. There are comprehensive and constantly evolving equalization, room optimization and systems management capabilities and in many cases, it takes two or three pieces of equipment from other suppliers to achieve the level of functionality of a single Datasat unit.

Format independent

The Datasat platform is designed to provide the best possible audio processing solution regardless of which sound format is output. It embraces any surround sound format from 5.1, 7.1 or 11.1 to 12.2, 12.4 or any other configuration that may develop. Any limitation would simply be in the number of output channels available.


Audio processors reflect a significant investment as part of a home cinema system. The Datasat platform is designed for longevity. It will not need to be ripped out when the next trend in digital audio appears. As alternative content and delivery methods develop, our audio processor is designed to keep pace with latest Dolby® and DTS® decoding, analog and digital inputs, HDMI, automation and other audio advances.
