DTS Audio Technologies to Stream to Connected Devices Over Microsoft Smooth
DTS in Smooth Streaming Specification Available for Immediate Implementation
into Connected Devices, Online Ecosystems and Infrastructure Partners
CALABASAS, Calif. -- January 3, 2013
DTS, Inc. (NASDAQ:DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and audio
enhancement technologies, announced today that DTS-HD® is now supported in
Microsoft’s IIS Media Services and Smooth Streaming platform. DTS-HD is now
available and ready for immediate implementation into connected devices,
online ecosystems and infrastructure partners that utilize Microsoft’s Smooth
“Smooth Streaming brings a high quality viewing experience to consumers across
a broad range of connected devices, from PCs and tablets to connected TVs and
set top boxes,” said John Deutscher, principal program manager, Windows Azure
Media Services. “We are excited to be supporting DTS’ premium audio
technologies in the Smooth Streaming ecosystem.”
There are tens of millions of consumer electronics devices with both DTS and
Smooth Streaming functionality that up until now have not been capable of
combining the two technologies to stream media with immersive DTS sound.
Moving forward, the collaboration with Microsoft will enable a vast and
growing number of consumer electronics products to stream in DTS, allowing
consumers to enjoy their streaming content with the same high-impact DTS
surround sound that can be found on optical media formats, such as Blu-ray.
“We are pleased to be working with Microsoft to deploy our advanced audio
solutions into the Smooth Streaming ecosystem,” said Mark Johnson, vice
president, streaming and media solutions at DTS. “Smooth Streaming is one of
the most widely used platforms for the digital transmission of premium content
to connected devices, and now with support for DTS audio solutions, streaming
services that utilize the platform can begin to offer a highly differentiated,
immersive entertainment experience that complements their video content with
high-quality DTS surround sound.”
Infrastructure partners, including those in charge of content preparation and
distribution tools, will also be implementing DTS in Smooth Streaming
functionality, which will enable tens of thousands of premium content titles
to stream in DTS surround sound.
