LAS VEGAS -- January 8, 2013

DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions, today
announced that it has entered into an agreement with ASUSTEK COMPUTER, INC
(TSE: 2347), a top global producer of computers and consumer technology, to
license its DTS Play-Fi™ technology for integration within ASUS’ line-up of
Windows®-based products. Already a leader in the development and manufacturing
of Windows-based computing solutions, ASUS will now offer integrated
whole-home Wi-Fi audio streaming as part of its product portfolio. With DTS
Play-Fi technology, ASUS products will enable consumers to stream lossless,
high-quality audio from almost any audio source on a PC to their DTS
Play-Fi-enabled home audio systems over a standard Wi-Fi network. It also
gives users full control of the home speaker network—allowing users to set up,
link, and stream audio to one speaker system or multiple speaker systems
throughout the home at once.

“Our goal with DTS Play-Fi is to partner with global brands to make whole-home
wireless audio streaming a standard feature that consumers everywhere can
enjoy, especially now with the proliferation of online and cloud-based music
choices available on PCs and tablets,” said Brian Towne, executive vice
president and chief operating officer, DTS. “ASUS’ market position and
technology leadership are well established, and we could not be more pleased
to have them as a licensee in the Windows PC arena, to extend the music
listening experience from its powerful PC platforms into the home with DTS
Play-Fi technology.”

“ASUS strives to bring our customers differentiated solutions with features
that provide meaningful benefits,” said Joe Hsieh, ASUS corporate vice
president and general manager of motherboard and desktop system business unit.
“With music becoming increasingly accessible from a variety of devices, it
made sense for us to find a way to connect ASUS products directly with the
home entertainment environment, and DTS Play-Fi technology fits very well for
us strategically. Together, we are giving consumers the option to stream music
from any source they like, right from their ASUS-powered PC to any Play-Fi
audio system within their home over a Wi-Fi network.”

DTS Play-Fi for Windows enables the delivery of Hi-Fi home audio over standard
Wi-Fi networks directly from a PC using a software driver. The DTS Play-Fi
connected ASUS product lines will be fully interoperable with other DTS
Play-Fi enabled products.

The benefits of DTS Play-Fi for Windows include:

  *Quality Sound Experience—DTS Play-Fi is able to wirelessly transmit up to
    high-definition “lossless” audio, with no impact on sound quality, unlike
    Bluetooth, which degrades sound quality via file compression
  *Multi-Room Listening Experience—Connect up to eight different audio
    systems to one network and enjoy music and audio in every room of your
    home or office, perfectly synchronized with no lag. Or, stream different
    songs to different rooms via different Play-Fi-enabled PCs or devices
  *Connectivity Range—Unlike Bluetooth, DTS Play-Fi-enabled PCs and devices
    connect wirelessly to playback systems via a standard wireless home
    network, enabling DTS Play-Fi connectivity anywhere within the home
  *Stream Anything, Control Everything—Simple applet allows users to choose
    which audio streams to send to their DTS Play-Fi-enabled speakers: hear
    music on the stereo, and email notices locally. Stream from cloud
    services, YouTube, Internet radio, local files, or connected media
    servers. Set-up, link and control all of the speakers on the network from
    the same streamlined interface

DTS and ASUS will begin working together on the integration of DTS Play-Fi
immediately. For more information about DTS, please visit www.dts.com, or
