DTS Details DTS:X
DTS has released details about its new DTS:X audio technology, for both the cinema and home theater.
The technology is based on MDA, what DTS calls its "license fee-free, open platform for creation of object-based immersive audio."
The first DTS:X-enabled products will arrive this summer, from such manufacturers as Denon, Integra, Marantz, Onkyo, Pioneer, Steinway Lyngdorf and Yamaha.
“DTS:X is built on the foundation of providing an open, adaptable solution for content creators, cinemas and homes to fulfill our goal of bringing immersive audio to as many people around the world as possible,” Jon Kirchner, chairman and CEO of DTS, Inc., said as part of the announcement.
“Until recently, sound in movie theaters and in our homes has been dictated by a standardized speaker layout. Through the use of object-based audio, DTS:X is able to scale immersive soundtrack presentations across a wide range of playback systems, from efficient to extravagant, while staying true to the content creator’s vision. This approach delivers the most authentic three-dimensional audio experience ever, making the audience feel as if they are in the center of the action.”
