DTS-HD Master Audio via PC Demonstration Announced

DTS, Inc. (NASDAQ:DTSI) announces that it will hold the first public demonstrations of DTS-HD Master Audio via a PC source during this year’s Computex in Taipei, June 5-9, 2007. The company will be showcasing its high definition surround audio technology for the next generation optical disc formats utilizing a high-end desktop PC with a Blu-ray Disc drive featuring DTS-HD Master Audio at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Taipei, Taiwan.

Part of the Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD technical specifications, DTS-HD Master Audio delivers up to 7.1-channels of surround audio that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master. With the introduction of the next generation formats, the PC industry is now integrating high definition technologies into desktop and laptop PCs for consumers.

“The fast adoption of HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc is encouraging manufacturers to incorporate high definition technologies into PCs,” said Brian Towne, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Consumer Division, at DTS. “Major CE manufacturers are seeking to include DTS-HD Master Audio in their next generation equipment, and we’re witnessing a similar initiative on the PC side. As more and more consumers purchase HDTVs and high definition peripherals, they want the same audio and visual quality from their PCs.”

Throughout the show, DTS will also be showcasing DTS Connect™, which was designed to enhance the entertainment value of the PC platform. 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 as many as 7.1 channels of surround sound via analog outputs.

About DTS-HD Master Audio™

DTS-HD Master Audio can provide up to 7.1 audio channels at a 96k sampling frequency / 24-bit depth or 5.1 audio channels at 192 kHz that are identical to the original master. The DTS-HD Master Audio bit stream also contains the DTS 1.5 Mbps core for backwards compatibility with existing DTS-enabled home theater systems, and delivery of 5.1 channels of sound at twice the resolution found on most standard DVDs.
