LAS VEGAS -- January 8, 2013

DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and
audio enhancement technologies, announces a new approach for audio creation,
delivery, and playback for Ultra High-Definition content—a major advancement
in immersive audio to complement the evolutionary steps video is taking with
4K resolution and HEVC. Together, they form the building blocks for the next
generation premium content known as Ultra High Definition (UHD).

DTS’ solution was designed from inception with the flexibility to address
multiple markets, especially the consumer home and mobile experiences, rather
than adapting a system designed for cinema to other applications. The DTS UHD
solution, which includes both channel and object-based audio, offers several
advantages to content creators, distributors and consumers—both in their home
and on the go. By combining it with DTS’ latest solutions portfolio, which
includes DTS Neo:X™ and the company’s all-new DTS Headphone:X™, the company
sets a new bar for UHD solutions with an advanced, flexible, and comprehensive
technology suite for next-generation audio delivery and playback.

“The DTS UHD solution will deliver beyond 3D sound over as many speakers as
the listener would like, but UHD audio is about more than just a bunch of
speakers,” said Fred Kitson, chief technology officer and executive vice
president at DTS. “It’s about immersive sound over headphones. It’s about
expanded features that provide enhanced value to content owners and
distributors. It’s about offering the consumer greater choice and flexibility
in their listening environments as well as a newfound level of engagement with
their sound experience.”

To accelerate next generation content creation, DTS intends to provide the
industry with Multi-Dimensional Audio (MDA™) as an open object-authoring
format as the industry looks to avoid a format war for next-gen content
creation and cinema delivery. Further, DTS is actively participating in
numerous standards activities to help define and deliver UHD content for
cinema, home media, broadcast, and cloud-based services.

Whether it is for professional applications, home theater, mobile devices with
headphones, or a sound bar, DTS’ next-generation UHD solution adapts to
deliver the best possible experience for UHD content. The cross-industry
reaction to DTS’ new solution has unanimously been: “when can we have it?”.

To hear how next generation audio will arrive on headphones, please join DTS
for a demonstration of DTS Headphone:X at its CES booth (LVCC, Central Hall,
Booth 9839). For more information about DTS, please visit www.dts.com, or
