The wait is over! Enjoy the full trailer for Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens in full 5.1 audio – the way it was meant to be heard. I did say that it would be in DTS-HD MA, but it is not. It is in full uncompressed LPCM 5.1 which technically is better. If a DTS encode is available I will add it as well.
The mkv with LPCM 5.1 and the mp4 with Dolby 5.1 are now available at the Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens trailers page.
Also, it appears that this trailer will not be shown in theaters. It was not listed as new content for this week by technicolor, and the file was named “broadcast” trailer, so the debut on Monday night football may be it.
Don’t forget to get your tickets!
In case you are wondering – I am not just uploading a ready-made file. The files I get require a lot of manual processing before I can upload them to you, and it is never a straightforward process. Each file seems to have its own challenges. For this trailer, when I did the QA on the PCM version, about 30 seconds in the sound went out. I had to trace it back to the first cut of the mkv I made, and then I had to re-mix the pcm audio, and re-do the transcode, re-do the cut transcode, and re-upload. I am one man doing this on my own, it took me two hours, and I did it all before I went to work this morning so that you could have access to it as soon as possible.
