SRS / Dolby licensing


(Miguel Angel Horna) #1

Hi!,

We’re wondering if (besides the FMOD license) we need to request any special Dolby or SRS license or display any logo or trademark for our commercial PS4 game.

More info:

  • We’d like to avoid any third party licensing issues other than FMOD.

  • I’m manually setting the software format to FMOD_SPEAKERMODE_7POINT1
    to avoid the SRS 5.1 Surround Sound Encoder being used automatically
    (which is the only thing I’ve seen in the documentation that needs
    licensing).

  • I’m initializing FMOD without FMOD_INIT_PREFER_DOLBY_DOWNMIX

- Can I safely assume that forcing the speaker mode to FMOD_SPEAKERMODE_7POINT1 like that, any other speaker configurations the final user may have will be downmixed accordingly ?, what would be the impact of this?

Thanks in advance!
