Las Vegas, United States:
Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and
audio enhancement technologies, has announced a new approach for audio
creation, delivery, and playback for Ultra High-Definition content—a
major advancement in immersive audio to complement the evolutionary
steps video is taking with 4K resolution and HEVC. Together, they form
the building blocks for the next generation premium content known as
Ultra High Definition (UHD).
DTS’ solution was designed from inception with the flexibility to
address multiple markets, especially the consumer home and mobile
experiences, rather than adapting a system designed for cinema to other
applications. The DTS UHD solution, which includes both channel and
object-based audio, offers several advantages to content creators,
distributors and consumers—both in their home and on the go. By
combining it with DTS’ latest solutions portfolio, which includes DTS Neo:X™
and the company’s all-new DTS Headphone:X™, the company sets a
new bar for UHD solutions with an advanced, flexible, and comprehensive
technology suite for next-generation audio delivery and playback.
“The DTS UHD solution will deliver beyond 3D sound over as many speakers
as the listener would like, but UHD audio is about more than just a
bunch of speakers,” said Fred Kitson, chief technology officer and
executive vice president at DTS. “It’s about immersive sound over
headphones. It’s about expanded features that provide enhanced value to
content owners and distributors. It’s about offering the consumer
greater choice and flexibility in their listening environments as well
as a newfound level of engagement with their sound experience.”
To accelerate next generation content creation, DTS intends to provide
the industry with Multi-Dimensional Audio (MDA™) as an open
object-authoring format as the industry looks to avoid a format war for
next-gen content creation and cinema delivery. Further, DTS is actively
participating in numerous standards activities to help define and
deliver UHD content for cinema, home media, broadcast, and cloud-based
Whether it is for professional applications, home theater, mobile
devices with headphones, or a sound bar, DTS’ next-generation UHD
solution adapts to deliver the best possible experience for UHD content.
The cross-industry reaction to DTS’ new solution has unanimously been:
“when can we have it?”.
To hear how next generation audio will arrive on headphones, please join
DTS for a demonstration of DTS Headphone:X at its CES booth (LVCC,
Central Hall, Booth 9839). For more information about DTS, please visit www.dts.com,
