DTS Bridges PC / AV Component Connectivity With DTS Connect

Strategic Partnerships with C-Media and Realtek Bring High-Quality DTS Surround Sound into PCs

DTS (Digital Theater Systems, Inc.) (NASDAQ: DTSI) launched its newest PC initiative, DTS Connect, designed to enhance the entertainment value of the PC platform. DTS has formed strategic partnerships with C-Media Electronics Inc. and Realtek Semiconductor Corp., leaders in audio solutions for the PC platform, to offer DTS audio technologies with both companies’ popular chip sets for PC motherboards, and PCI or USB soundcards.

A DTS Connect-enabled PC provides two audio benefits to the consumer: DTS Interactive™ and Neo:PC™, for both multi-channel and stereo content. Taking full advantage of the maximum data throughput of the digital interface, DTS Interactive provides a single cable connection via S/PDIF digital audio output to a DTS-enabled surround sound system by encoding all audio into a DTS-compatible bitstream at 1.5Mbps. Neo:PC, based upon DTS’ Neo:6 matrix surround technology, transforms any stereo content such as MP3, WMA or CD audio, into a 7.1-channel surround sound experience.

“The introduction of DTS Connect will bring rich DTS surround audio to the PC market worldwide simply and seamlessly. No matter what original content consumers play ‘” whether stereo or multi-channel ‘” DTS Connect ensures simple installation of multi-channel audio for the PC, and brings new life to stereo recordings,” said Brian Towne, Vice President, Consumer Division at DTS. “We’re proud to be working with C-Media and Realtek, two of the largest PC audio solution providers, to launch the DTS Connect program.”

“C-Media is excited to collaborate with DTS to bring DTS Connect to the PC in what is yet another first for C-Media and Realtek. PC users and consumers will really enjoy the fantastic audio experience that this technology delivers,” said Eric Cheng, President of C-Media Electronics.
