DTS Announces DTS:X Authoring Tools For Blu-ray Library
DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions, has announced forthcoming support for DTS:X in Sony Blu-print™ 6.6 and Scenarist® BD Professional and Pro Plus v6.0 authoring tools for Blu-ray Disc, enabling the use of DTS’ next-generation object-based audio codec on Blu-ray Disc. DTS’ long-standing relationships with both Sony Creative Software Inc. and the principals at Scenarist, LLC are a key element to bringing DTS:X™ support to these industry-leading Blu-ray Disc authoring tools.
“The ability to add DTS:X to Blu-ray Disc content would not be possible without our on-going collaboration with both Sony and Scenarist,” said Mark R. Johnson, vice president of streaming and media solutions at DTS. “With the integration of DTS:X into these authoring tools, content creators will be able to create Blu-ray Discs that feature our latest technology. We are very excited to once again work with Sony and Scenarist to establish a higher standard in home entertainment audio experiences.”
Earlier this year, DTS unveiled their next-generation object-based audio codec technology – DTS:X. This release is the successor to DTS-HD Master Audio and marks another milestone in DTS’ long line of industry-leading sound innovations. Unbound from channels, DTS:X conveys the fluid movement of sound to create an incredibly rich, realistic and immersive soundscape – in front of, behind, beside and above the audience – more accurately than ever before. DTS:X offers the ability to automatically adapt the audio to the speaker layout that best fits the space, from a television’s built-in speakers to a home surround theater system to a dozen or more speakers in a commercial cinema. Brands representing more than 90 percent of the home AVR market will launch DTS:X-enabled products in 2015.
