Dolby on Sharc

Hello Quick question about Dolby licensing on Sharc Platform.


Any ways for a Analog Device Employee to clarify the process involved in getting access to the production code for  Dolby on Sharc Platforms?
I read the line: "You need to be a Dolby or DTS "qualified recipient" to  receive a Dolby  or DTS module. This implies that you have already  signed a license  agreement with Dolby or DTS."


I  would translate that to: "Talk to Dolby first, get a license and then talk to AD about  getting the code". Is that correct or am i missing something?


I'm currently in talks with Dolby but they have 2  licenses: System and Implementation. If AD software modules were already certified by Dolby, does this mean that I only need a system implementation?


Just trying to get my story straight on how that module&licensing works.
