right now I'm writing on my thesis and I try to find out the main differences between the Interop- and SMPTE-DCP specifications regarding the amount of audio-channels that are available. The problem I ran into is that the SMPTE specs are only sold via the SPMTE store and I don't even know which *.pdf I should buy to get the desired informations.
So far, I've only found out, that an Interop-DCP allows 16 channels of audio for each channel-configuration (5.1 / 7.1SDDS / 7.1DS) in up to 24Bit and 96kHz.
So my question right now are:
-Does anybody of you know, if a SMPTE-DCI allows more than these 16 channels?
-And are there more channel-configurations than 5.1, 7.1SDDS and 7.1DS available?
-And can you think about a way to implement more than 16 channels into a DCP?
Thanks in advance
